If you haven’t heard of Nalley Fresh by now, you must be living under a rock. Nalley Fresh is a fast-causal salad spot that has a few locations popping up all over the city. I frequent the location on Pratt street for lunch at work, or I have it delivered via OrderUP, but my roommate hadn’t experienced the wonderful salads that I have been raving about for weeks so for dinner we met at the location in Canton. If you’re torn between the downtown location and Canton, the location in Canton has parking.
Nalley Fresh is set up similar to Chipotle, you walk up to a counter, are given a few options, and you pick which sounds best to you. The three base options at Nalley Fresh are salad, bowl, and a wrap. My rommate decided to order a bowl which came with a rice base, then she added grilled chicken and peppers. With the bowl you have the option to top it with broth and turn it into a soup, she asked for a small amount of chicken broth, but not enough to make this a soup.
I know the best part of Nalley Fresh is the salad. Over a bed of lettuce I picked out my favorite add-ons, they include: buffalo chicken, purple slaw, mushrooms, onions, avocado, and my choice of dressing. Because I’ve customized the salad to my liking, there’s really no reason for me to not love what I’ve created. Even better, everything is extremely fresh. This is probably one of the best salads I’ve had in Baltimore.
