Oh, SweetGreen, how I love thee. During my first semester at Georgetown, I avoided SweetGreen because I knew the addiction it created in my closest friends. I went strong for six months until that fated day in the spring when I had my first bite and fell prey to the SweetGreen spell. I’ve tried the Kale Caesar, Santorini, Guacamole Greens, Earth Bowl, and froyo. My all-time favorite is the Kale Caesar, with shrimp of course, which I will review in this post.
Location: 3333 M Street NW (Washington, D.C.)
Order: Kale caesar salad with shrimp
Review: Holy cow. This is one of the best salads ever, hands down. All of the ingredients live up to SweetGreen’s promise of fresh, organic quality. Seasoned with cilantro and lemon juice, the shrimp maintains its fresh out from the sea taste and pairs perfectly with a light caesar salad dressing on crunchy kale. Writing this post makes my mouth water and my heart long for M’s cobblestone. Okay, now winter break in Miami doesn’t seem to compare to life in Georgetown! Anyway, you get the point. You’re only depriving yourself of guilt-free, salubrious, life-injecting greens if you don’t stop by this cult favorite.
