✓Kale and quinoa signature salad

✓Chicken gyro and tzatziki sauce in spinach wrap (tip: we weren't able to pronounce this so just call the staff and point at this dish)

✓The big berries smoothie

✓Classic cappuccino

✓Peanut butter latte

The Final Take!

Surprisingly filling considering its oh-so-light ingredients, the Chicken gyro and tzatziki sauce in spinach wrap won our hearts tummies! The K&Q signature salad had kale, lollo rosso, chickpea, pomegranate and feta cheese in it which spell clean eating like no other- it is a post-workout meal as a whole with fresh wholesome goodness!

We washed down the healthy deliciousness with The big berries smoothie which had a milk base and was churned out of blueberries, blackberries and strawberries, sprinkled with chia seeds adding to its health and taste quotient. It is a must-try and if you're here, it'll be a sin for you to skip on these two must-haves!
