Salad Stop or not to Stop?

in #food4 years ago

I have dined here many times and there was only one time that I had a bad experience. That was my first time visiting the restaurant! Haha. How bad can it be and what made me come back?


Here's what happened... I was starving to death and I asked the server to just to mixed a bunch of veggies and all kinds of toppings instead of choosing from the menu. I sat down and waited for my salad and when it got on my table it wasn't a salad I thought, it was a soup!

The big mistake that she did was to add too much-wet ingredients in the bowl and mixed the dressing, oh no! Still, I I gave it another try after a month hoping they will regain my trust but this time, I ordered what's on the menu. Something that they're already familiar with the recipe and not the "put whatever you want recipe by purepinay". LOL =p


So far, I was satisfied with the outcome. Happy tummy at last! So this has been my ultimate salad stop for almost five months now whenever I get lazy to make my own salad at home. ^_-


Tip: If you happen to visit this place, ask the server to put the dressing aside that way the veggies stays fresh lookin'. ^_- It's better that way.


The place can be quite busy during lunch, dinner and weekends. If you are one those people who like to eat healthily but most food nerds out there know that salad takes time to prepare. So I like to buy an extra for the next day.


A few days ago I ordered two extra for lunch and dinner. How did I manage to keep the veggies fresh? I took some out and transfer it to a different container and put a table napkin at the bottom of the bowl and on top. They said it helps suck the moisture out making the veggies stays fresh. Walah! it did work for me, thumbs up!



wheres the beef? i see salad but no steak? they messed up the order right.. lol

oh the butcher was sick so I guess ahaha

You wouldn’t want a sick butcher. Hah

omg, no way! I'd rather starve myself lol

why you sabotage my appetite? haha!

Sorry about that. I just hope they didn’t charge you for the missing beef. Lol

stay happy and pretty!

Beautiful place to visit, thanks for sharing

thank you!

You are welcome

where are you from?

hi. I also like this post. SALADSTOP is nice place to visit.

Look delicious :x


Nice pictures! I can't wait till I try these foods.

wow i love that food, hmmn im getting hungry now..:-< huhuhuh...

nice the photos,

but i'm so hungry watching your photos,,,

have a nice day

Haha sorry bout that, maybe someday we can have dinner with the other steemians!

I also love veggie salad but the only option I have is either make my own or go to pizza hut haha

I used to like pizza until I learned how to make my own pizza dough from scratch, and they're just really cheap with cheese, I like putting a whole load of cheese on my pizza

Making your own is the best

Most of the time when I don't rush things :) @amirl

Yes me too @purepinay I love overloaded cheese on pizza and sometimes in my salad but I'm not a good cook so extra charge it is haha sad...

pak! overloaded a more! ahaha

well, practice makes perfect ikanga

how's steemit life so far? are you enjoying your time here?

@purepinay Very happy that I became part of Steemit haha Love reading all the blogs and the whole community! I also love reading your blogs, hope you can post more often hehe

you are sweet =)

and thank you for your support. I think I am getting more familiar with you now.

Glad you're hanging out here more often. I appreciate your time. =)

What have you been up to today?

This is a great,
I upvoted you as a witness :) good luck!

oh dear you are so sweet!

though I am not a witness, how I wish I am one of them though but maybe in the future hehe

but thank you for your support ^_- where are you from?


isn't she a cutie? I should start saving some more money to pay for the server in the future, oh no haha

haha :D yes get saving!

could save a lot more if SBD is not too high, do you know any boosts that can accept Steem token instead?

My local bank account is going to drain soon, lol might need to sell some of my family's coconut trees (oh no!) haha, OMG that Steemitlife, the real addiction!

Do you mean bid-bots?

Yay for coconuts, i'll buy some! :D

Good morning @purepinay, and have a nice day. valuable stuff you shared with us. photographs are attractive. "Salad" is my weekness, i daily used salad. fresh salad which is at home made is awsome.its best for health.
stay blessed.

Good morning to you too!
Thank you, I use my new Google PXL, I do love the camera on this phone.
Salad with bread, that'll do :)

Wow ! Nice place !!
Salad looks yummy and delicious !!

Mouth watering !

thank you! love the thumbs up photo, so cute!

Thank you so much my friend !

How can someone live without food, this is cool!

Haha! thank you, dear

by the way I visted your page

I'd like to see you writing, I look forward to your story. visit me again when you have a new blog, okay? you'll do well here, I can see you're good at interacting with people

Looks yummy 😋..... I nid support guys... Pls , like my post.... Help me grow.... Resteem my posts... Pls followback.. Thanks 😘

thank you! there's a lot of opportunity to grow on steemit, keep writing blogs and make friends.

Tip: A lot of steemians including myself don't like when they see others ask for upvote or resteem but you know what, you'll never know this till somebody tells you right? So I have to tell you so you won't have to ask some help. You have to talk like you are in control of everything.

I will help you, if you help yourself. I have a lot of steemians that come to me for help too so I will try all my best. You can see that I upvote comments because I barely have enough time to read all the comments and visit other blogs and I really try hard.

Always ask questions if you happen to comment a blog, that way you can start to make a connection with the author and you can also do this with your followers.

You just started, I visited your page just a few seconds ago. You will do great here! Trust me, you just have to keep the pace, keep blogging and interact with your audience, always.


I am done visiting your page, friend. I look forward to more of your stories ^_-

talk soon!


@purepinay is really good in making salad :)

@gerel and I ate like "KAMBING" when we first tried the salad made by ate Gilaine ..hehe

Thank you! Hahaha you'll get used to it, gerel even made cabbage salad, cabbage and cheese that's it..ewwwk

Great veggies but not good for this cold weather. I want a heavy meal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eye candy photos ^^

Veggies soup for you then 😉

Thank you dear!

yay! at last you noticed me :D

Haha, I haven't before? So many of you here, it's overwhelming.

Thank you for your time, appreciate.

Where are you from?

Cebu, my good friends are @itinerantph @fernwehninja haha

oh I know those sweet fellas, they're always on the go. Going on the right track to achieve their dreams =)

how's your steemit experience so far? Hope it's a fun one ^_-

Yeah I’m having fun! Actually I’m already part of the chat group in messenger. Your words of wisdom earlier were too inspiring. About one steemian who told you that he couldn’t reach where you’re from now, I read FAQ of steemit as you advised to newbies, and to never beg for upvotes haha. Nice to meet you @purepinay!!!

Happy to know that!
I don't normally hangout on chat rooms or any group chats because it takes a way my time from steemit. I like to engage with steemians through comments, not only it'll help your reputation but more steemians can read your messages, who knows how many steemians and people outside you are inspiring. 😉
Am glad I brought inspiration to you, writing it in words helps me do better. I appreciate your support and it's my pleasure to meet you ☺️

Have you already set a goal for yourself here?

I am not really into veggies but this looks delicious!

Omg why? Haha What do you mostly eat then?

Meat hahaha

wait! no greens at all?

Hmmm I only eat veggies sometimes hahahaha

Awwwww yummy very nice post young lady. All the bet to you.

It's good to eat some raw food, you get the most nutrition out of it.

Thank you, what's our food tomorrow at the event? I hope there's veggies haha

Salad is always a YES for me! Healthy and good for the tummy. But a bit pricey too. :3

build some good relations with steemians that you can call your friends and keep posting interesting blogs, start from that.

Keep steeming my friend, you'll on the right track, eventually, you'll get more audience, and make a lot of friends by engaging with steemians through comments =)

Alright, thank you 😉

thanks, where is your avatar photo my dear?

Moral:Give everything a second chance ;)
I'm gonna use your table napkin technique to keep my veggies fresh.😉

Let me know how it turns out 😘

Where are you from?

Healthy stuff. I also like Russian salad.

Russian salad sounds interesting, what's in it?

Salad is always something that I could not replace regardless of my obsession with meats. In order to keep my body healthy, I definitely need to keep up with salad to balance my diet. I'm glad that you've chosen this topic to write to encourage more people to start on a salad diet. Well, I guess you're equally obsessed with food. Do check me out too @explorernations I blog about food and travels

Balance is important...

I always feel good after eating just all veggies but of course meat is another story, sometimes you just crave for that savory dish..

thank you for dropping by, I'll try to take some time to check on you soon as I do have a lot of back logs to read from a lot of my avid supporters, all the best!


Looks really fresh and varied, you are lucky to have such a place to go to! :D

OMG that looks super mouth-watering @purepinay, where is this? I wanna go hahaha

I like your post friend I follow you and vote follow me
