The first and original outlet, this newly refurbished rendition of Element Fresh has a lounge-like second floor but is otherwise the same. Open kitchen, healthy sandwiches / salads / smoothies, int'l environment, a touch pricey. And extremely popular.
Don’t we all love a great outdoor area with city view to dine in? Element fresh on huaihai road is perfect for a little office escape. What’s better? The food is always on point.
Love pretty much all of their salad since it’s always refreshing and tasty. I love that they have fresh fruits in the crayfish salad, and everything blends perfectly with the sauce. They also have lunch set with one main dish and soup/salad. I had the grilled salad with chicken the other day and it was delicious. I’m impressed with the roasted vegetables baby potatoes in the salad for how golden and crispy they were, which added a great taste to the salad. The pumpkin soup was rich and flavorful with herbs and nuts on top. You can also add another 22 RMB for a juice. The spring roll was filled with all kinds of greens, and had a very strong taste of basil leaves. I personally love it but my friend found it odd. Finally, the classic Cobb salad remains a strong option.
The prime location and beautiful rooftop terrace is what I love the most, yet the service is always a bit off for me due to the not so attentive staffs.
Element fresh offers a selection of great salads and other refreshing dishes, which are all healthy and delicious.
