Day 14. Tuesday
FoodPanda again did the honors of bringing my grub for the day.
Lunch – EverGreen [Agha’s]
Change of tactics. I had once seen these salad bowls placed in the fridge section of Agha’s on one of my grocery visits, and at that time I didn’t think much of it, or you can say the health bug hadn’t bitten me as yet.
Evergreen is the company placing these salads there. If you remember, Evergreen was the company that was going neck to neck with Eatfit in the healthy eating space a couple of years ago, until the company went bust.
And good that they did, because their salads are worse than Eatfit’s. At least Eatfit’s portion size of salads is large enough to satiate your appetite. Evergreen’s salad, you won’t feel if something went into your stomach.
They used to be in the range of Rs.300 to 350 just a few months ago. Now they are upwards of Rs.400.
I bought two of those, one for lunch and the other for dinner.
For lunch I had the Grilled Steak Salad. It was gone in 60 seconds, and I felt hunger pangs for the rest of the day.
And whatever you do, don’t try their honey soy dressing that comes packed with the salad. Unless of course you are in the mood for a puking bout. Try at your own peril.
Dinner – EverGreen [Agha’s]
Evergreen’s Chicken Azzurri salad was as fulfilling as their steak salad. So you can bet all their salad offerings are like that. It cost Rs.420, and didn’t have the value of more than Rs.200. That’s how bad it was.
I wasn’t going to go hungry the second time around in the same day, so I had hummus and khubz leftovers from previous night along with the salad.

Day 15 dinner. Didnt I tell you to stay away from Evergreen? Trouble is, I dont listen to my own advice. Chicken Azzurri salad (whatever the hell that means) was as bad as the grilled steak salad. Biggest turnoff being its just not enough, even at a whopping price of Rs400. I feel great at the fact that #evergreen was not able to sustain its business. I hope they crash and burn completely. #30daychallenge Check out www.restaurants-uncut.com for details of each day.
Evergreen should just call it quits the way they’re going.
