Chop n Toss in Coquitlam Mall

Chop n Toss Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoLocated in the middle of the hallway right at the mouth of Coquitlam mall’s food court, Chop ‘n Toss has a clean, modern and ‘healthy’ look. Since I was thirsty, I decided to get a juice, rather than the cheap, but sugary pop from the other venues. They had already juiced drinks, and I picked up KALE $4.73 which had kale, spinach, carrots and orange.

When I went to the till, the shy Asian lady told me that the drink had just been juiced and that it was not chilled yet. I told her that was ok. In fact, I was rather happy it wasn’t chilled since I tend to avoid cold drinks unless I’m in dead-hot weather. And what better to have a fresh drink too!

idearabbit_chopntoss_coquitlam_mall3It wasn’t sweet – which I am ok with, and rather have than a lot of sugar. It was just perfect. If only I can get into juicing at home…

The drink was good, and the lady was cheerful. Not a cheap drink, but worth it.

Chaser’s Fresh Juice And Deli

Chaser's Fresh Juice And Deli Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI was taking a course a few shops down, and for lunch, I decided to try out Chasters. The place is small, but it was pretty empty, with only 2 groups of customers when I got there, and by the time I got my order, I had the cafe all to myself.

The ingredients are fresh. Friendly staff. The area I sat had a really cool draft, but otherwise, ok for a quick bite.

They also have smoothie, salads and juices for those looking for a healthy eat.

Heirloom Juices Co.

Heirloom Juice Co. Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter yoga practice, my yogi classmates went to Heirloom for lunch. Some of us grabbed a smoothie, which I was tempted to get, but instead got the salad instead. I thought that we would get the already packaged salad in the glass refrigerated deli case, so even though I wanted the Kale Slaw, since it had sliced almonds in it, I got the Kale Caeser $8.95 instead which only had kale, capers and croutons. I wished it had all the goodies that the Slaw had, minus the nuts.

The salad was pretty good with an interesting, unique dressing. I still would have like more variety of ingredients, but that is my fault for not asking if they could make a Kale Slaw without almonds. Still, it was filling and felt really healthy just eating it. I find it pricey though considering they are not organic, GMO free or anything (at least not what I could find on their website).

It’s mostly as take-out place since there are only like 3 counter seats along the window. The staff was friendly and cheerful.

The next time I went, I ordered the Kale Slaw without almonds. Mmm! So good. No wonder so many of my classmates always order and rave about it. It’s got a variety of ingredients. Fresh, good and healthy :)
