☞ EAT: Island Salad on 125th Street
Everything is pretty straight forward at the charming salad shop which is basically a take-out place with a lot of character. The storefront has a bright exterior and interior which includes mosaic pebble stone tiles at the entrance, bamboo floor in the dining area and tropical colors all around. Salads are freshly made to order with a very pleasant crew on hand up front. Some of the more designer salad options run in the $7 range but the portions and ingredients such as Jerk chicken are worth the extra change.
Lunch time seems to get a lot of traffic from walk-ins along with folks who work at the Harlem Children's Zone across the street but the lines move quickly. Mr. Meed himself is also often on hand behind the counter and greeting guests. Anyways, this is a great everyday restaurant to check out for some healthy eats.
