I’m really glad to see a place focusing on healthy (but still delicious) food, smoothies and cold pressed juices. I’ve tried three different wraps from here and I’m pretty hooked. FreshCoast and Kulture frozen yogurt bar are in the same store tucked in the back corner of a strip mall on the corner of Shelbourne and Cedar Hill. Most of the food is prepared as you order it with a few grab-and-go salad options in the refrigerator if you’re on the run. There are a few tables there too if you prefer to snack there.
I first ordered the Moss Rocks wrap ($8) which had hummus, roasted yams, sprouts, roasted garlic and feta. I don’t usually order vegetarian but I definitely didn’t miss the meat in this delicious wrap. The wrap if anything was too filling! I loved the creaminess of the yams and the sweetness of the roasted garlic. I personally would have preferred more feta but then again I’m also addicted to feta. Overall all the flavours worked really well together in this very satisfyingly hearty wrap.
The second wrap I tried was the Fisgard Market ($10) which has tuna, red pepper, lettuce and cashews. I loved the crunch and richness from the cashews in this wrap and the rest of the ingredients were crisp and fresh. This was a very ‘wet’ wrap though especially if you let it sit for a few minutes it can get quite soggy.
The third wrap I tried was the Nootka Sound ($12) with candied salmon, goat cheese and spinach. There was lots of spinach in this wrap so it wasn’t as filling as some of the others and the candied salmon was a nice change from regular mundane wrap fillings.
Overall I really enjoy the concept of FreshCoast as fresh veggies and exciting protein choices are sometimes hard to find with ‘fast food’. I also like that you can have any wrap in the form of a salad if you’re feeling a little carb conscious. The Moss Rocks and the Fisgard Market were definitely my favorite of the three but I’m excited to try some of the others. My only criticism though would be that the tortilla wraps seem a little stale, warming the them or grilling them for a few moments would really take the wraps from good to great.
