Fed up with paying 85RMB for a Cobb Salad at Element Fresh? Try Souper Fresh. For 58RMB, you get a buffet of greens, vegetables, dressings, and toppings like nuts, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese, croutons, coleslaw, egg salad, potato salad, pasta salad, etc., etc., etc. Also included in the buffet are a selection of breads (corn muffins!), soups (my favorite being the carrot orange) and hot dishes (pizza pasta and the likes). Drinks and desserts are not included in the 58RMB, but are all reasonably priced and half-off when ordering with the buffet. Browse their full menu online.
My plate #1, with carrot orange soup
Dressings and toppings
Fruit salad and nuts, raisins, croutons
How’s the quality? Some soups are a little runny, and the hot dishes are not very impressive, but just the greens and vegetables and toppings and potato salads and breads and hummus (hummus!) already more than justify the 58RMB price tag. They are starting up a second branch in Gubei soon, and supposedly will do a 50% off deal during its soft opening. Stay tuned!
