dc food scene: honeygrow


Honeygrow is a cool new take salad + stiry-fry in the DC area that combines fast-casual with Eatsa (touchscreen ordering). It's expensive considering the salads are considerably smaller than Sweetgreen. 

So I finally got my butt into Honeygrow last month. I'd read that it was super vegan friendly, and was excited to check out all of the hooplah. 

The location is next to HipCityVeg + La Tasca, and across from the Chinatown Metro. Inside, tables + benches take up the front, while the back corridor is dedicated to touchscreens for ordering and chefs behind the glass. Like Eatsa, the restaurant is set-up so that there's minimal interaciton between the person placing the order, and the person making it.

Like Eatsa, Honeygrow is great for our increasingly hypocritical society where we both crave attention but absolutely hate having to interact with anyone at all. Oops, did I say that out loud? 


ANYWAYS. Honeygrow boasts two types of dining options: Stir-fry or salads. Everything is served in to-go containers, even if you're "eating in." Similar to Sweetgreen, chalkboards boast local farms where today's ingredients have been sourced. #FarmToTable

Anyways, I loved the salad so much. I'd honestly recommend building your own because ~options~. I'm one of those people who can not go ANYWHERE without making substitutions to my food, whether it's adding an extra shot to my cocktail (#BallSoHard) or subbing out chicken for tofu. 

But, it was nothing that special. I'd go again if I needed to, but I would go out of my way to get a Honeygrow salad. The actual food quanity seemed considerably smaller than what you'd get  a Sweetgreen (really the only worthy competitor) and basically the same price. 

Jury is out on whether the stir-fry and noodles make a difference in my book. Stay tuned!
