After the feasting of Christmas, it’s common to want to aim to get back on track with healthy eating, but that’s not always easy during the holiday season. So it’s a pleasant surprise to find a new food outlet in Western Sydney shopping centres, promising healthy and wholesome food alternatives.
Soul Origin is a new sandwich and salad fast food outlet incorporating the latest ‘warehouse’ design - giving it a very fresh and cool vibe. Their Rouse Hill store opened last month and is the second outlet in Sydney’s West.
All the benefits of wholesome cafe food are offered on display at a great takeaway price. With a huge range of fresh and flavoursome fillings you’re sure to find something to take your fancy – like the Grilled Chicken Focaccia – with fresh grilled chicken breast and salad sandwiched between slices of focaccia, this provides all the nice without the naughty. Wraps also offer a great alternative.
If you’re aiming to avoid bread all together, there are a great range of salads on offer. And if you find it hard to decide, you can choose two different salads - even when ordering the small size. The beef salad pairs perfectly with the brown rice salad. The citrus, ginger and chilli flavours of the marinated beef ideally compliment the nuttiness of the rice, and with plenty of salad and vegetables throughout you can be confident of a very balanced and healthy meal.
From the drinks list you’ll find the usual hot and cold beverage offerings, however you may be intrigued by the 'sparkling long black'. This drink was apparently so new that the barrister had to check how to make it! As it suggests, sparkling water is poured over ice, then two shots of coffee are added. Being cold fizzy black coffee, it really is a whole different taste experience, and can take some getting used to! This is definitely one for the adventurous at heart.
If you do want to treat yourself, they offer a great range of sweet breads - banana, rhubarb and cinnamon, carrot and pecan – all preservative free, along with cookies and brownies – for those who allow themselves to be tempted.
In the Rouse Hill kiosk setting, food is diligently prepared by their dedicated team in a small space at the back, and brought to the front counter for display, overseen by plenty of staff eager to serve.
This is a real hit with my family when shopping, being confident that we can now grab some food on the go, with a clear conscience, at a reasonable price.
