The New York concept of Chef Designed salad, wrap platters and custom Build-Your-Own-salad bars is now available in Singapore. Just Salad began with a simple question: Why is there such a shortage of healthy fast food?
Nick Kenner and Rob Crespi were tired of the options available to them for lunch in midtown Manhattan. So, instead of continuing to settle, they set off to develop a restaurant concept that would serve a healthy, fast and creative alternative. To make sure that Just Salad would serve only the best salads in the world, Nick and Rob sought the expertise of Chef Laura Pensiero.
Already world-renowned for her inventive and nutritious cooking, Chef Laura joined Just Salad after founding Chef4Life, a provider of healthy and delicious solutions for life-long improvements in diet while still stressing the importance of enjoying food. She guaranteed Nick and Rob that Just Salad would stay true to its mission: offering a meal that would be both healthy and delicious.
Chef Laura designed the Just Salad menu from front to back, creating twenty-two unique dressings and thirteen enticing combinations of toppings now known as Just Salad's Chef Designed Salads.
Every detail of Just Salad was thought out carefully. You will enjoy everything from the food to the music to the environmentally friendly bowls. Shipments of fresh ingredients are delivered every morning, so you know that you are getting the freshest possible meal.

Smiths have opened their 2nd store at Balmoral Plaza and wanted to share a little fish and chips trivia with you. So here goes....
Did you know that fish and chips are 100% natural with no added colouring or preservatives. They contain less fat and calories than burgers, kormas or pizzas plus they’re an excellent source of high quality protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, iron, calcium and dietary fibre. White fish is also an essential part of a healthy diet.
Tests by the Seafish Industry Authority show fish and chips contain approximately 170 Calories and 9g of fat per 100g. That means our average fish (170g) is approximately 300 calories and 16g of fat and our average chip portion (300g) is approximately 500 calories and 27g of fat.
There are around 10,000 fish and chip shops all over the UK, selling 276 million portions of fish and chips each year.
As far back as 1838 Charles Dickens wrote about fried fish warehouses in the classic novel 'Oliver Twist'. These warehouses acted as the forerunner to fish and chip shops – but the partner to fish wasn't the traditional chip as we see today, but either bread or baked potatoes. The fish was sold by street vendors who carried the goods in trays hung around their necks. The fish was purchased cold for about a penny a portion.
Fish and chips was the only take-away food not to be rationed during the Second World War. Frederick Lord Woolton, Minister of Food at the time, even allowed mobile frying vans to carry fish and chips to evacuees around the country.
The first fish and chip shop is thought to have been opened in Mossley, near Oldham, in 1863, although there are claims for one in London that opened in 1860.
The world’s biggest ever portion of fish and chips was cooked in Hull during Seafood Week, October 2002. The fillet, which measured 34 in long and 14 in wide, weighed 28 pounds and 1 ounce, beating the previous world record by two pounds.
On a Friday in the UK, 20% of meals purchased outside the home are from a fish and chip shop.
In order to produce the best quality fish and chips at Smiths they only buy the best quality supplies. All of their products are of the highest quality and they spend every morning preparing everything fresh for the day.
Smiths fish, fishcakes, sausages and scollops are all cooked in our homemade batter which is made fresh every day to Smiths very own authentic secret recipe. We only use the very best potatoes available and they are peeled and chipped fresh every morning on the premises. Our chips are authentic thick cut chips as this creates a healthier product for our discerning customers.
Smiths fish and chips are fried in the finest quality refined palm oil, which gives our food that authentic proper traditional British fish and chip taste. Our fishcakes and scollops are homemade each morning on site. Our peas are soaked overnight and cooked fresh each morning so we can give our customers old fashioned, real mushy peas.
We serve our fish and chips wrapped in paper, just like the old days and off offer a first class product and first class service.
