All you can eat salad?

April 7, 2012 3:09pm CST
Hey all I just came up with a idea and wanted to run it past people on here for their views. I know that now a days people are looking to eat healthy and everyone is told to eat more healthily, so I thought instead of having a all you can eat chinese restaurant or pizza place, how about a all you can eat salad bar. It would have all the vegetables you would consider, dressings,potatoe salad but also meats and fish. Would the idea of a all you eat salad bar appeal to you? If not could you explain why not

I would love an all you can eat salad bar. I like salad, and I would probably have chicken salad or egg salad, and potato salad, and eat lots of it. My kids would eat it too, they like cucumber, lettuce and carrots, and chicken, so it could be a great place to go for a family meal. Its a shame there isn't a place like that where we can go.

An all you can eat salad bar would appeal to me. I would choose cucumber, lettuce, spring onions, carrots, beetroots and cress. I would happily have a fruit juice like cranberry, grapefruit or pineapple. I eat a vegan diet and therefore don't eat meat or fish. Salad is a very healthy and fresh choice to eat.

If you're thinking about opening a restaurant that focus on all you can eat salad bar, it would not profitable. It would definitely appeal vegetarians and people who are trying to eat vegetables more, but you will struggle with this business. Statistically or generally, there are not very many vegetarians in this globe. I would love to visit your restaurant, but I would not want to go there every day or every so often. My point is: Even if you can have vegetarians come into your restaurant, you would not have so many of them frequent your restaurants enough to keep your business opened.

Yes it would appeal to me very much, I could sit there for a few hours just eating two meals worth, and be happy with everything.

I think that would be a super idea! I just joined a gym that is right across the street from where I live and now I'm becoming more health conscious. Have a great day and an even better one tomorrow! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

That's what I have when I go to Sizzlers. It's an internationally franchised restaurant, but I don't know how famous are they besides in the States and here. They do serve steaks, seafood platters, and other menus; but an all-you-can-eat salad bar is usually quite satisfying for me.

I like eating vegetable salads, but not without a heavy meal first. I would probably visit an eat all you can salad buffet once just to try it. Personally, I think this is a good concept, it targets a certain demographic. However, it will also be great if in the next room there's a buffet for regular meat lovers. So that everyone can enjoy the food they love in one place. I only weigh 47 kilos, I burn calories at a much faster rate, I need a variety of food to eat. Just to satisfy my calorie intake having to enjoy the best of both worlds will work for me. Don't you agree?

The thing is we have salad bars in some restaurants but as you say its with non healthy food. I think they feel guilty so they put a salad bar up...lol I would go to an all salad bar place, as I love any kind of salad, but its persuading the family to go also would be the difficult part hahahaha maybe if they had ice-cream bar to weight out the difference then yes.

I really like your idea of an all you can eat salad buffet, I would definitely eat at that type of a restaurant. I think it would be good to offer all types of vegetables such as many different types of lettuces, spinach, peppers, and the list goes on, along with many lean meats, cut into small pieces for salads. You could also offer different types of cheeses and dressings. It would be also good to offer many different types of fruit as well. It is important to keep in mind though that not all salads are healthy as not all salad ingredients are healthy. If you put too much dressing, cheese, mayo, etc. on a salad, it can become more unhealthy than greasy deep-fat fried food. A salad buffet is a great idea, but people need to also be aware that just because something is called a salad, it is not automatically healthy.

There are mary open buffet restaurants that give you that possibility and it´s up to you if you prefer a salad (or a lot of salad) or a huge dish of pasta. Your post reminded me of an experience I had once, when we visited Atlantic City with my husband. THere was an open buffet rastaurant at one of the casinos (in fact all of them had something like that) and we went ther and for a very reasonable amount of money we ate wonderful seafood and salads. Lots of them. At a nearby table sat a couple eating a huge dish of white pasta. My salad dish would include ( besides the usual crisplettuce and endives) seafood, hearts of palm and artichoke, avocados, olives and some pickled peppers.

In one of the popular restaurants in my country they have a great salad bar. They sell meat dishes as well, but many people only eat the vegatables from the salad bar. If I don't want a meat dish you just tell the waiter that you only want vegetables. You pay a fixed amount and then you can eat as many vegetables as you want. When my husband and I visit that restaurant we often stick to the salad bar instead of choosing a meat dish. I love their salad bar, there are so many different kind of vegetables. I am not a vegetarian and I eat meat sometimes, but I would definately visit an all you can eat salad bar, because I love vegetables.
