Old Montreal's New Gem: Mandy's Salad Bar


Have you ever wonder, if you can find a stunning spot where you can impress all your friends, have a scrumptious healthy meal and a neat service you'll simply come back over and over again just to try all the menu? 

A few weekends ago, I found that lovely spot in the heart of Old Montreal with my girls, enjoying the newest gem in the area, Mandy's Salad Bar
Imagine a piece of Palm Springs heaven in the middle of a European flair, so charming you'd want to move in as soon as you step in. I have to confess, I've been a sucker for Mandy's for a few years now, so I couldn't hide my excitement about this new dreamy location.

With an eclectic interior of black-and-white Parisian-tiled floors, handpicked chandeliers, a stunning pink sofa corner and the custom made palm tree with flamingo murals all over the space reminded us of the best tropical vibes and a total Instagram dream.

This fourth location is the first one (hoooray!) to offer alcohol, including a curated list of wine, beer and bubbles, handpicked by the mastermind sommelier and Nora-Grey co-owner, Ryan Grey. If you're into a refreshing homemade juice, just head to Mandy's striking bar, I totally recommend their signature classic Lemonade, it's just beyond refreshing.

Old Port's menu has extended their classic salad options including a 
brand new grain-based dishes, don't miss any of the 4 options offered, as the Hippie bowl, served with a special tamari sauce and marinated tofu, avocado, sunflower seeds, carrots, black beans over a delish quinoa or brown rice, totally your choice.

I definitely #aimemandys lots!


Here's what we ordered that day:

- Asian salad 
Romaine lettuce, mixed greens, avocado, crunchy noodles, mandarin oranges, cherry tomatoes, shredded carrots, toasted sesame seeds

- Salmon sensation 
Mixed greens, romaine lettuce, spinach, quinoa, avocado, roasted asparagus, dill, dried cranberries, pine nuts, roasted salmon

- Lumberjack salad
Romaine lettuce, bacon, turkey, chicken, cherry tomatoes, avocado, mozzarella, mushrooms, green onions, baked pita chips

- October salad
Romaine lettuce, mixed greens, toasted pecans, goat cheese, pear, dried cranberries, shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes

- Barley and mushroom bowl (newest addition and one of my favorites)
Warm barley with mixed wild mushrooms and herbs, fried shallots, grana padano cheese - SO good!

Hey girl, Hey! With my lovely Petite and Bold
