    • Editor's Description
      Yet another one from Kelley Lee, the restaurateur behind Cantina Agave and Boxing Cat Brewery, Sproutworks is a quick-serve sandwich, soup and salad shop. Menu offerings rotate daily, and items range in influence from Asian to the Mediterranean. Think grain salads like quinoa or shredded Brussels sprouts tossed with hazelnut and shredded parmesan.

    • Not feeling too hungry and trying to be healthy one day, my co-worker and I went into the Sproutworks located at Xintiandi’s commercial area for a quick lunch. Not too crowded during the lunch hour, we were able to waltz in, order at the counter, and find a table fairly easily. Most people dining there looked like they worked around the area, and there’s a great outside seating area for a sunny day. The place is set up like a salad bar, in which you can choose a variety of sides and salads to create a DIY meal. I decided to order the kale salad, baked cauliflowers, mashed potatoes, along with some marinated tofu.

      Once I’ve put the food into my mouth, I can’t even begin to describe how bland each of them tasted. Maybe I ordered a bad combo, maybe healthy food isn’t for me, or maybe Sproutworks’ food isn’t made for those with heavy taste buds like mine. I don’t know, but either way, not wanting to waste food, I had to force myself to eat the rest of the meal. Around 2 hours later, I felt a surge of hunger as if I’ve never eaten lunch. I’m not sure how but the meal has actually managed to make me feel more hungry.

      Needless to say, I probably won’t be giving Sproutworks another try. Although they had a wide variety of healthy options, it wasn’t a feel-good healthy option for me, unlike other light food joints like FitBee. Overall price was quite affordable at 60 rmb/person .
