• Quality Greens Kitchen Debuts New Summer Menu {+ Easy Online Ordering}

    Written by:

    Quality Greens Kitchen is one of Hoboken’s newest on-the-go health food restaurants, and it recently revamped their menu just in time for the summer {because summer bod goals doesn’t mean you have to only eat healthy food at home}. Besides their carefully-curated new dishes and seasonally-fresh ingredients, QGK has also launched online ordering through their website {limiting any of the third-party issues that come with not ordering from the restaurant directly — see below for more info!}. We stopped by Quality Greens to check out the new menu and are sharing all the deets with you:

    About The New Menu:

    Quality Greens’ brand new summer menu includes eight new vegetable sides, three new salads, and two new soups {fresh-to-death summer-style soups, BTW}. The Chef’s Plate sides have been completely reinvented… the only unchanged sides are the gluten-free mac & cheese {because you can never change perfection}, sweet potatoes, and of course, the half avocado.

    While you may be disappointed to hear that the Brussel sprouts are gone, they are out of season at the moment and will be back in the fall. Quality Greens only wants to sell the freshest ingredients, which means switching up the menu according to what is in season. And you can’t complain about that.

    New Sides on the Menu

    Yes, soup in the summer may not be what you’ve always been dreaming about, but when it comes to Chilled Gazpacho and Hot Summer Corn Soup, they’re new to the menu {and j’amaze}. Roasted rainbow carrots, roasted kale, and sautéed broccoli are among the other additions that are elevating their menu for the new season.

    Proteins

    While the choice of various meats, seafood, and other proteins are staying the same, Quality Greens has spent months testing out different cuts and brands for the meats. The USDA prime steak is sourced from Pat LaFrieda {the same supplier many Michelin-starred NYC restaurants source from}. The fresh, sushi-grade salmon is sourced from the Faroe Islands.

    New Salads

    Summer soups, summer salads — all of the upgrades. On the salad side, QGK has a few that are quite noteworthy and must-orders that make eating green delicious and not a drag. Here are a few of the new salads on the menu, below:

    Mangoat Salad

    Baby spinach, arugula, mango, quinoa, goat cheese, toasted almonds, balsamic vinaigrette {with a side of Mint Lemonade}.

    Earth, Wind, & Fire Salad

    Shredded kale, chopped romaine, roasted chicken, carrots, cucumbers, pita chips, honey mustard vinaigrette. Anything with pita chips = happiness.

    Pesto Chicken Salad

    Baby spinach, shredded kale, roasted chicken, summer squash, mozzarella, carrots with a pesto vinaigrette.

    Dessert: Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit

    You’re probably thinking, well dessert can’t possibly be healthy. WRONG. Quality Greens Kitchen serves Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit {you may recognize them from their flagship store in Union Square}. The frozen soft serve is basically fruit in froyo form — AKA so much healthier. It is vegan and fat-free, with no additives, but you’d never be able to tell. This refreshing summer dessert consists of just THREE ingredients:  fruit, water, and a touch of organic cane sugar.

    To wash it all down, try out their Mint Lemonade. You will be obsessed.

    Online Ordering

    Over the past month, QGK has made a big shift from 3rd party delivery sites to its very own online ordering platform that is run through its online website. The restaurant is currently only accepting delivery orders through said website, which will also be revamped this summer.

    When ordering through their website, a $1.99 delivery fee applies and there is a $9 order minimum. First-time orders receive 20% off!
