Located at the Qube, the newest Tossed location in Fitzrovia's business district reflects the electronics retail heritage. Quirky and vibrant images of melons are in the shape of speakers and strawberries mimic lightbulbs. With catchy lines such as 'do ipeas come in ipods?', Tossed brightens up the day of those visiting for breakfast and lunch, with an invitation to 'scrap the satellite dish for a salad dish'. The menu offers more than 20 house recipe salads, freshly made on the spot and tossed to order. You can also create your own from a choice of over 100 ingredients and cold or hot bases, including salad leaves, egg noodles, and slow energy releasing cous-cous and brown basmati rice.
Tossed counts calories and nutritional content, packs superfoods and protein, does not add salt to its foods, users low GI carbs, ditches mayo for fat free yogurt to bind ingredients, and its smoothies provide 100 percent of your daily fruit in one hit. Most salads average 300 calories. Using low fat and slow energy-release foods, one can fill up on Tossed's big portions, without guilt. There is a mouth-watering range of hunger-busting salads, sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, soups and stews, to offer something for everyone, with a 'value' salad range starting at just £2.95. A large Tossed Signature salad, packed with farm assured chicken breast, mozzarella pearls, red grapes, apple, toasted cashews, sun-dried cranberries tossed in champagne raspberry dressing, is just 435 calories and is only £4.95. Tossed's delicious Signature Salad combines chicken breast, mozzarella pearls, toasted cashew nuts, sun-dried cranberries, is tossed in champagne raspberry dressing and sells from £3.95.
