Even though in Shanghai there are around 5 restaurants per block average, it is yet hard to find healthy spots all over. Organic and healthy cuisine concepts are getting more and more developed in the last year but still is hard to see.
On Xiangyang road you will find this little place -no more than 10 seats aprox- called Banana GG, a healthy and pet friendly place to go for a fit meal. If you go in the rush hour you might have to wait a bit because it’s gone popular. The staff is very friendly and the menu has salads, wraps, pokes, yogurt and more. You have all the proteins and veggies in different dishes presentations, which is a very smart decision.
We went with our lovely dog and had the salmon salad, the falafel wrap, the chicken quesadilla and the granola with yogurt. As usual we order more than we should and we ate it all. The dishes are fresh, the portions are perfect (you won't feel hungry afterwards) and everything is very tasty. My fave is the granola and the size is pretty big! Prices are fair: 300 Rmb aprox for a big meal.
The only thing I would change is the garnish salad in some dishes since it is the same one in all the menu, but other than that Banana GG is definitely a good spot when you want to take a healthy break.
