What we heard: “a full box of superfood salads with grilled chicken and halloumi slices and some pitta bread FOR A FIVER.” What we did: hot footed it to Berwick Street in Soho, located a very long queue, groaned and then shuffled down past the line of hungry hipsters to cement our place at the back.
Savage Salads is in essence a small black street food tent in the middle of Berwick Street market that has seriously upped the salad ante. You choose from 4 salads (most have a little of each) and then from a topping of chicken, halloumi or both. It’s £5 either way, so it’s a no brainer really. Portions are generous.
On my last visit, they had a panzanella (tomato and bread salad recipe), a crunchy red cabbage salad, some beetroot with quinoa and a couscous and vegetable mix.
The chicken is grilled with garlic and rosemary and served straight from the pan, as is the grilled halloumi and a couple of slices of pitta bread.
The results is seriously delicious and it’s little wonder the queue seems to grow on every return trip. We’re not doing a very good job of keeping it a secret either!
Meet us there (we try to get in there early before 12.30pm) – they are stationed at the market Tuesdays – Fridays. Also good: Flat White coffee shop directly opposite if you have room for anything afterwards!
