Yesterday I had to make a trip to London, Ontario to have my orthotics readjusted. Normally I don’t really like making the 1 hour and 45 minute drive there and back in one day, but this time I was excited because I planned to meet up with my friend Shannon while I was there.
We decided to meet up at Fresh N Wolfe, a new take out restaurant that just opened on Talbot Street earlier this month. I think it’s a great concept: fresh, healthy food that is fast and ready to go so that you can just grab it on your lunch break. Or you can opt to eat it there – there is seating inside as well as on the patio they share with The Early Bird.
Their menu consists of paninis, wraps, salads, and soup as well as smoothies, fresh vegetable juices, and milkshakes. It’s a small menu, but it has something to suit everyone’s dietary needs, whether you’re vegan, a meat-eater, gluten free, etc. Shannon and I wanted to try almost everything, so we decided to split two items so that we could try more.
First was the smoked tofu, kale, and quinoa salad. I was surprised that this was the large size because it seemed quite small. It was really good though and packed with flavours of garlic, parsley, tomato, and the smokey tofu.
We also split the prosciutto panini, which was huge! Even half of the sandwich was still quite a filling portion. And the flavour combination of prosciutto, brie cheese, arugula, and fig and rosemary jam was absolutely fantastic.
I was pretty full by the end of this meal, which is too bad because I would have loved to try one of their smoothies. They have some really creative fruit combinations using fresh herbs like basil and mint. Next time I’m in the city I will definitely be stopping by for one (and another one of those paninis)!
