Segal left DAVIDsTEA last year to pursue a new challenge – create crave-worthy, healthy food for people on the go. The result – Mad Radish, a new chain of salad shops.
He describes Mad Radish as “ingredient-focused and chef-driven”. Segal brought in Toronto chef Nigel Finley to design the menu, which consists of a dozen salads, three warm bowls and two soups, along with bread baked in-house and beverages that are made fresh daily.
Here’s a closer look at just a few salad options – ranging in price from $11.50 to $16 each:
- Breakfast for Dinner: Inspired by late-night blueberry pancakes, this mix of savoury granola, fresh blueberries, roasted beets, toasted walnuts and creamy goat cheese.
- Tagine Dream: Inspired by a Moroccan tagine, this saffron scented couscous salad is packed with crunchy almonds, fruity cranberries and pomegranates, crisp cauliflower and cool cucumber.
- The Brassica: Get in touch with your cruciferous side with this crisp mix of broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and leafy greens, with creamy broccoli puree and savory cashew “parmesan.”
Fans can order via the Mad Radish app, enjoy salads on the go, or right in the salad shop. The menu consists of both vegan and vegetarian options.
The first two locations are both located in Ottawa, at 100-116 Albert Street and 859 Bank Street. The brand plans to expand to additional markets across Canada in the near future.
