The food

Customizable salads and bowls, or pre-designed creations by consulting chefs, including Nigel Finley (The Chase Fish & Oyster, Catch). According to Segal, the Ottawa-based chain aims to offer accessible and healthy meals that are more creative and inspiring than the typical salad chain offerings. Things like the coconut curry chowder served with house-made focaccia, or shawarma chicken hand pies. Bonus: For every order placed through the Mad Radish app or website, one serving of fresh produce is donated to Community Food Centres Canada.

The vegan-friendly Smoky Caesar is made with romaine lettuce, garlicky chickpeas, smoked mushrooms, broccoli, kale, capers and cashew-based “parmesan.” $12.50.


The Harvest Bowl tops mixed greens with roasted sweet potato, cranberries, candied walnuts, blue cheese (or feta), quinoa and a maple-mustard dressed. $11.95.


The Fired Up Chicken Bowl tops brown basmati rice and mixed greens with spicy chicken, roasted sweet potato, spicy broccoli, pickled radish, corn nuts and a maple-chipotle dressing. $13.95.


Coconut curry chowder is a blend of veggies in a soup made with garlic, ginger, tomatoes, red curry and coconut milk. $6 ($6.75 with a mini loaf of house-made focaccia).


Hand pies come in both savoury (chicken shawarma) and sweet flavours (apple cinnamon). $4.


There are a few desserts, too.


Like this chewy chocolate hazelnut cookie crusted in sea salt. $2.


Founders Stephanie Howarth and David Segal.
