Chinatown’s roster of food options range from gluten-free fried chicken to Taiwanese beef noodles to Italian-Japanese dishes. But if you feel like you need a health-cleanse after indulging in all those carb-heavy items, check out the neighbourhood’s newest juice bar.
Greenderful (636 Main Street) recently opened its doors in the historic area, offering a menu that includes organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, super-food salads, and matcha creations.
Co-owners Edward Phan and Wendy Vo are the brains behind this new establishment, with the latter coming from a nutrition background.
The newly open spot features mega-healthy ingredients such as dark leafy greens, turmeric, chia seeds, almond milk, avocado, flax seeds, ginger, and more.
Greenderful’s plant-based matcha latte one of its signature items, which is made with Japanese matcha, housemade almond milk, coconut milk, and maple syrup.
It’s also mindful of its carbon footprint, so you won’t find any plastic or non-recyclable materials at the shop. Plastic straws are also non-existent here—customers will be provided with compostable straws for their drinks.
Cold-pressed juice bars and healthy smoothie spots are not new to Vancouver, but we’re not complaining that another spot serving up tasty and body-friendly drinks has opened in the city.
