TORONTO — Mad Radish has opened its first Toronto location near the corner of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue.
The chain, founded by David’s Tea founder David Segal, offers an ingredient-focused and chef-driven menu of fresh salads, seasonal warm bowls and healthy snacks, sides and desserts. Popular menu items include the Smoky Caesar, a classic Caesar made with smoked mushrooms, garlicky chickpeas, salty capers and savoury cashew parmesan; and the Fired Up Chicken — marinated in hot sauce and mixed with rice, roasted sweet potato, red cabbage, pickled radish and a roasted-corn-and-bean salsa.
Mad Radish launched in Ottawa last summer and currently boasts three locations in the Ottawa area. As with the other locations, the Toronto location will be “cashless and trashless,” with all of the brand’s packaging being 100-per-cent compostable. The brand also offers online ordering via its website and mobile app, which will launch in Toronto on November 7.
The brand has also partnered with Community Food Centres Canada to donate one serving of fresh produce to a local community food centre for each order placed through the Mad Radish app or website. Donations from the Toronto location will support The Stop Community Food Centre and the Regent Park Community Food Centre.
