The Mad Radish is officially coming to Toronto. The spin-off salad concept from DavidsTea founder David Segal will open its first outpost at Yonge and Eglinton this October.
As previously reported, the chain of salad shops launched in Ottawa last summer and intends to introduce “an ingredient-focused and chef-driven menu of fresh salads, seasonal warm bowls and healthy snacks, sides and desserts,” across Canada.
“If we’re going to change the way we eat, we have to change what we crave,” says Segal in a press release. “Eating healthy food shouldn’t feel like taking your medicine – and getting access to a high-quality, great tasting, nutritious meal shouldn’t be a burden for busy Canadians. That’s why we created Mad Radish, and that’s why we’re so passionate about bringing Mad Radish to more and more cities.”
Toronto-chef Nigel Finley (ex-The Chase Fish & Oyster, Little Fin) is overseeing the menu including top-sellers like vegan “Smoky Caesar and the “Fired Up Chicken” featuring a medley of rice, roasted sweet potatoes, cabbage, pickled radishes and corn-bean salsa.
Like the three Ottawa location, the outpost in Toronto location will also be “cashless and trashless,” meaning that payment is all digital and packaging is 100% compostable.
Where: Coming soon to 2293 Yonge Street, Toronto
