The Boston-based fast casual restaurant opened its first Toronto location earlier this year, and their second one on Queen St. West opened last week. b.good prides themselves on serving healthier fast-casual food by using preservative-free, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients. Given that their main message is "make fast-food “real” by making it the way it should be… by people not factories"; it's rightfully so that they use local ingredients. Their menu gears more toward the healthier side of fast-food, as they specialize in burgers & sandwiches, kale & grain bowls, hand-cut fries, and healthy drinks (shakes and smoothies). Located directly across from the St. Lawrence Market; the restaurant is open 7 days a week for dine-in, and take-out.




Their top sellers are the kale and grain bowls, of which there are five options on the menu. I opted for the popular spicy avocado & lime kale bowl - marinated kale (lemon, canola oil, Kosher salt), sauteed veggies (carrots, zucchini, green beans), avocado, black beans, corn, grape tomato, lime, cilantro, queso duro, chipotle puree, and red pepper vinaigrette. The kale bowl arrive packed with tons of nutritious veggies, and I also added a side order of chicken as I needed the protein. The bowl was very filling, and the spiciness of the chipotle puree enhanced the dish. 






Not only do they aim to offer the same quick service that you would find at fast-food restaurants, but they also want to provide the best, and freshest ingredients. In order to do so, they have partnered with many local growers, and farmers in Canada. In fact, their relationships with these farmers are so integral that they have become part of the b.good family. Information on the farmers, and producers are showcased all throughout the restaurant (online, in-store info book and walls), so they are very transparent about it.


b.good does not offer any carbonated drinks on their menu. Instead, customers have a variety of choices of healthy smoothies and milkshakes. I got the strawberry-banana smoothie - strawberries, bananas, honey, and Greek yogurt, which quenched my thirst.



Also on the menu is freshly made lemonade.





 They also have a reward program that offers free food rewards, as you gain points each visit. Upon joining, you are welcomed with a free order of hand-cut, oven-finished real fries. These baked fries are a healthier option, as they are baked instead of deep-fried. The fries are well-seasoned, and crispy right out of the oven. However, I do recommend that the fries be eaten right away, as it got soggier as it got colder.



Lastly, the b.good brand participates in a lot of local charitable initiatives. The Toronto b.good's charitable partner is Regent Park Community Food Centre (CFC). Regent Park Community Food Centre (CFC) is a local charity that helps to provide basic housing, clothing and food needs to those who reside within the Regent Park community. I think it's great that a portion of the sales from the Toronto location helps those in need. 

Overall, b.good is a solid option in the St. Lawrence Market area, especially if you're in the mood for some healthy fast-food options. It's great that customers can be rest assured that all of the food served here are locally-sourced from farmers in Canada.
