Eden’s Fresh Co. Reply

Dear Orlando Diners,
If you read my About page it says I am “open” to try different things or restaurants at times or occasions. One of these so called occasions came to fruition recently. On a recent Saturday for lunch I tried Eden’s Fresh Co. Yes, I was thinking like you are right now, what the heck is a Eden’s Fresh Co. Well, they serve fresh salads and wraps. If you are a vegetarian it works for you. If you are not a vegetarian like me, it still can work for you. This place is semi-hidden, tucked away in a small building off Fairbanks that turns into Orange Ave not far from Park Ave in the Winter Park area. When you walk in you might notice an unusual set up? They have high top tables in the front of the restaurant. In the back of the restaurant they have regular tables. They also had a nice big screen TV on for viewing in the back section of the restaurant. You order your food at the counter. A salad builder makes the fresh salads in front of you. On this day, they only had 1 guy making salads at lunch. Lucky for him people trickled in every few minutes. If everyone would have come in at the same time, it could have looked like I4 traffic at 5:30 pm in downtown Orlando. The menu has 11 salads/wraps to choose from. I had a salad, the Desperado $4.85 and I elected to add the Protein $2.00 extra, Boar’s Head smoke turkey was recommended in this salad. This Southwestern salad features Romaine, Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Tomatoes, Onions, Black Olives, Tortilla Strips and Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette. All the lettuce and toppings (tossings they call them) were very garden fresh and it tasted like a delicious salad. The Chipotle Vinaigrette was the perfect dressing for this salad. I am a meat person so I am glad I had the Smoked Turkey with my salad. The turkey went well on the Desperado. I am not the type of person that likes his salad to be the whole meal, however I was pleasantly surprised on how filling it was, but in a good healthy way. I left being comfortably full, this was a nice change and a healthy change. You are what you eat, right? On another note, if you feel you don’t like any of their 11 salads or wraps that’s on the menu you can request the salad builder to build a salad just the way you like it. They have around 37 different Tossings to choose from. You get 5 Tossings. Each additional Tossing is .40. Eden’s Fresh Co. has 12 dressings to choose from. They also have several Protein items to choose from like turkey, chicken and even tofu. Due to the size of the plaza parking lot, it can be limited and tight. Eden’s Fresh Co must be doing something right; they also opened another location in downtown Orlando. So grab your vegetarian friends or non vegetarian friends or a mixture of both and head over to Eden’s Fresh Co.
