There's that old expression, "eat like a king." But I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd rather eat like a celebrity. It seems like famous people are always first to know about all the cool trends and the best places to eat. We also have a feeling that people like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce must know where to get a good salad. So we sent Jackie on a quest around Los Angeles to eat five of the best celeb-approved salads in town.
The Kardashians Recommend: Chinese Chicken Salad From Health Nut
At this point, the signature green Health Nut salad containers are as iconic as the Kardashians themselves. Of the many menu options, each sister has their favorite (Kourtney loves the protein-heavy Chef's Salad), but we had to try Kim's favorite: the Chinese Chicken Salad. It's packed with tender chicken, crunchy chow mein noodles and the pickled ginger brings an acidic, slightly spicy bite. Just make sure you follow the Kardashian salad playbook and give the salad a good shake after dressing it.
Rob Lowe: Gigi Salad From The Palm Beverly Hills
Rob Lowe essentially hasn't aged in 20 years, so when that guy gives you a food recc, you better take it seriously. The Palm is famous for hosting the likes of Snoop Dogg and Jerry Seinfeld, but they are perhaps even more known for the Gigi Salad, which is the most ordered menu item across all 25+ locations. It ' essentially a Shrimp Cobb salad, but it's going to be the best Cobb salad you'll ever eat.
Beyonce: I AM PURE From Cafe Gratitude
Beyonce is known for her various diets, so when she started a vegan cleanse with a salad from this LA vegan-food mecca, the whole world took notice. The I AM PURE is a hearty kale salad filled with two types of seaweed, seeds, and tossed in a tahini dressing we wish we could put on everything. We also added the optional kimchi, which takes the salad to a whole new level.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Tuna Chopped Salad From Carla Cafe
This salad startup took orders exclusively over Instagram during lockdown and rose to stardom after Miss Goop posted her order on her grid. This is the platonic ideal of a chopped salad. Finely chopped chickpeas, tomatoes, pepperoncinis, and cucumbers make it easy to get the perfect bite every time you stab into it. Oh yeah, and did we mention its topped with a heaping scoop of the best tuna salad you'll have in your life? Add to cart please!
Rhianna: Favorita Salad From Giorgio Baldi
Giorgio Baldi is Rhianna's favorite restaurant. She goes a lot and has a favorite table and a favorite server. But she's not the only celeb that frequents this low-key Italian spot. Pop in on any given night and you might see the Biebers, a Jenner, or Lady Gaga. Cardi B had her birthday dinner there!
Giorgio Baldi is known for their pastas but the Favorita, Giorgio's take on a classic Italian tricolore salad, is filled with peppery greens like arugula and radicchio, and they toss in some fresh, creamy mozzarella to balance it all out.
