Dubbed as the “The Healthiest Fast Food Franchise,” Sumo Salad is a hearty and healthy endeavor. It makes and serves salads that never go out of style regardless of the season. Sure, side salads definitely offer a green counterpoint to whatever else you’re eating, but they can be pretty as standalone meals as well.

Luke Baylis and James Miller from Australia started this chain of healthy yet delicious food alternative in 2003 to battle against unhealthy eating trends which surround eaters almost everywhere now.

When you walk into a Sumo Salad store, you will see plenty of salad ingredients that you can choose and design for your own salad meal. Yes, meal! Sumo Salad empowers you to stop thinking that salads are only to set side. Follow Sumo Salad and be full with their large gourmet salads.

Review of Sumo Salad (Holland Village, Singapore)

Ambiance: ★★★★★

This branch is located in the Holland Vollage MRT station in Singapore. Mom and I were heading to Holland Village Food Center (hawker place) in the area and we were enticed to “stumble upon” Sumo Salad because of its inviting storefront design. It’s a typical standalone to-go restaurant (not the push-cart type) where busy people can just be refreshed seeing tons of healthy and freshest ingredients displayed in the counter.

Service: ★★★★★

Here customers can choose more than one viand. The server which happened to be a Filipino suggested us to not just stop at lettuce but layer the salad with more vegetables to make it to a power salad. Since we’re first-timers here, we asked her to pick the best for us. She added shredded carrots, celery, radishes, tomatoes, beets, cucumber, sprouts and peppers. Definitely our salad was infused with more color this time. 😛

Food: ★★★★★

What I love about it right off the bat is that their salads have everything going on: roasted vegetables, vinaigrette, warm and crispy garnish and some meat. Aside from salads, Sumo Salad offers a huge range of healthy food including wraps, rolls, toasties, pasta, soup, yoghurt, coffee and other tasty options to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters.

We had salads that came with a duet of varied greens sliced into fine ribbons that gave a nice crunch. Next, to pump it up with protein, aside from the fiber we got from eating these vegetables, we also had bits of chicken, hard-boiled eggs and salmon drizzled with olive oil for that extra booze of healthy fat. Penne pasta, nuts and seeds were also put together and our order resulted to one crazy salad and wrap with tons of health-promoting compounds.

The mixed flavor was super sarap. Delicioso!

Price for Value: ★★★★☆

Sumo Salad is where you can find great choices for a light lunch, brunch, snack or dinner! Budget per meal is S$6-9 and the range is about PHp 200 to PHp 300. Must-tries are Tuna Potatoes, Grilled Chicken Potatoes, Grilled Chicken with mushroom. The price is quite reasonable with generous portions that really fill up the entire plate or container (you can choose small or large). I hope they also open a store in the Philippines soon! I suspect I’d be a frequent customer when they do. 😀

Thinking about this food, do I miss Singapore? Yes, guilty as charged. :mrgreen:

      I recall there’s a salad stand in Greenhills but they don’t offer customer to pick the contents of the salad but only display the packaged ones in the refrigerator. One order costs about PHp 120.

    I’m not really a salad person pero I eat such from to time. Looks like their salad is really deli ha because of the high scores that you have given them on your review. Not sure if we passed by at the MRT station where this store is located when we went to SI last year. I’ll just tell about this to my friend who lives in SI.

    The salad here tastes fresh, delicious and yummy because of the vegetables. I noticed that there is a sumo salad in TokyoTokyo. I want to try that one

      I have not tried the salads from Tokyo Tokyo though I’ve seen them in small packages. Hmmm let me get that next time. 😀 I’d like to pair it sana with parsley and tender young beets for indescribable small bites of freshness!

      You still can have your DIY salads. 😀 Just visit the grocery store and buy the best ingredients you can find and add dressing to complete a fulfilling taste of your homemade salad.

    This looks like my kind of place! I’ve been a sucker for healthy dishes recently, and I craved just looking at your bowl of salad, and with the mention of wraps! Will definitely grab lunch or dinner here when I visit Singapore by the end of the year 🙂

    I love salads, thats why I always go buffet with salad bar. here is one here in baguio in hotel veniz just that they dont have much choice as the choice in here. I wonder why all the nice food places are so far away from my area.. I just hope if they ever expand the next place of expansion would be baguio.
    I would try this once even if the prize is a bit out of my budget for food. 🙂

      Baguio has lots of vegetation and plantations and I’m sure when Sumo Salad opens a branch there, everyone will be surely delighted with fresh finds. 🙂

      I think concept-wise, no, at least the ones I know of. But there are pretty similar and related ones like the food carts in malls selling different types of salads which you can mix with one another. Theirs are fruit salad, macaroni salad and the regular others that taste synthetic for my palate. 😯

    They should open one here in the Phils! I love eating salads! For now, pwede na din ang healthy plates ng Kenny Rogers. 🙂

      Yeah pwede na rin hehe but this one is really different! 😀 You can copy the idea and make a big batch of the most delicious dressing you can cobble together so it lasts several weeks in the fridge and then add in lettuces, vegetables and bits of meat to make a salad.

    Sumo Salad is the perfect place for those who are health conscious and those who are on diet as they get a healthier alternative with the salads here.

      For the health-conscious – yes but only to a certain extent and that is dependent on the type of salad dressing you use. If you’re one who counts calorie of every meal, you can start from scratch and create your homemade salad dressings to have the flexibility to use fresh, natural ingredients sans sugary concoctions. 😀

    For me salad can be a meal. The idea of a stand alone salad station would be a great idea. I wonder if we have one like that here in Manila.

      Yeah nakakabusog kaya ang salad! The good thing is that salads are aplenty regardless of the season here, so they can be served as side dishes or courses.

    Salad is my little boys comfort food.He can eat a vegetable salad as a meal , just add some dressings and pieces of meat. The Sumo salad is one of the place that I want to visit for a healthy food.

      I’m glad to hear that your kids embrace vegetable salads as part of their diet, as most kids nowadays don’t like the taste of greens. I bet you are creative in making tasty dishes for them! 😀

    The healthiest fast food chain indeed! I used to have salad but due to health concerns, I’ve learned to love it. This is a place that I will always love visiting.

    Make your own salad! I love that!! At least you don’t have to force yourself eating those ingredients that you don’t like. In case, I don’t like arugula and olives. Hehe.
