I love this place, the ingredients are fresh and the choices quite substantial. Only thing that makes me give 4 instead of 5 stars: the dressing has changed and is less tasty, especially the balsamic vinegar dressing. Please revert to your previous recipe...
I eat almost daily from Goodcals, its a fab. restaurant. I am more into the sandwiches. Although I order alot I can only review the Vegeterian, Smoked Salmon, Chicken pesto and chicken Mustard as I am not very bravo when it comes to trying new things. For the vergeterian i have never ever tried a vegeterian low cal sanswich that is so good as this one, juicy, tasty and delicious. For the chicken pesto, the pesto sauce is of a very good quality obviously not oily and not heavy. Chicken Mustard is brillient if you like mustard. Smoked Salmon was nice but i liked more in white bread for some reason it doesnt taste very good in the brown bread. there bread in general is so filling and this is what i want when i am following a diet. If you are on a calorie diet as I am you will love Goodcals as it offers a huge variety and tasty. Only one request from the shop owner is to add it to Calorie Count application which is quickly spready among Egyptians.
When I find new items in a restaurant I like I love to order a variety from the new menu and have bits and pieces from each, kind of like an open buffet, and have the rest divided between several meals to come. I just ordered the chicken pasta, the chicken wrap, the vegetarian wrap and the chicken blues salad as my safe order incase I didn't like any of the new items.I had a bite from both wraps, and a fork from the pasta. They are alright but not a wow factor for me. Unlike what I like about wraps, the wrap to filling ratio was not to my liking, wraps usually taste more like the filling rather than the wrap bread, for some reason these tasted more like the wrap not the filling. The fillings were not perfected as usual, I felt like they could be improved, especially as a wrap, it's easier to add a wow factor to the taste buds. Also I would've preferred the wrap to be healthier, brown wrap, or atleast have the option, plus thinner wrap Pastery to give a boost to the fillings.The pasta was just meh... It's meant to be served cold, which I would like to have the option but would prefer to find hot versions. The dressing was not to my liking, and again the taste needed a general addition of a wow factor. It was boring for me. Also the bucket was overfilled that when I added the dressing there was no way for me to shake it like I do with the salad to spread the dressing. Also I would've liked to have the option to choose brown pasta. I wouldn't be happy consuming 540 calories on this, I would be disappointed to even spare 100 calories of my daily intake on this pasta.I thought maybe they r having an off day, so I opened the salad and tried it, it was good as usual, so it's not an off day I suppose... I will have most of the salad now, and the other stuff I will eat tomorrow throughout the day, I'll either skip the pasta khalis, or I'll do some changes to it so its not a total waste of calories. The wraps are alright but didn't leave me purely satisfied like the chicken blues salad does. If I were you I would try them out still, not the pasta though, skip that one, its boring, trust me!
I haven't been there, but I've ordered twice. First time i had the caesar salad and a shrimp sandwich. I loved the caesar salad, light, fresh, clean, and pleasant. I had ordered the shrimps in brown bread, the ratio of bread to filling wasn't appealing to me, and being brown and the bread's taste simply took over. I was already full anyway so I didn't eat much of it, and my dad ate it and loved it.Yesterday I ordered the chicken blues which was amazing! I might ask them to leave out the cherry tomatoes next time cause I'm not a big fan, but other than that i was simply in bliss, and with only 290 calories, thats pretty close to heaven on earth. I have no clue though why they sent me 2 dressings, vinaigrette and ranch dressing, I only used the ranch. Was I meant to add both? I also had the roast beef sandwich based on the review that I read here, and I completely agree with the review, I loved it! it was delicious! I wouldn't mind having a sandwich like that without the roast beef even, the other fillings r yummy enough on their own.I had ordered an extra sandwich to have for breakfast, the halloumi sandwich, its good too, but not not my fave. But it's still light and refreshing. a good and filling breakfast.I forgot to mention that I ordered the sandwiched in white bread this time, less of a healthy choice, but I was afraid of ruining my sandwich with the brown bread. Maybe I'll give the brown a second chance in the future though.What I'd love Goodcals to do, is to offer real meals, not just salads and sandwiches. Like a stir fry or so. I had a 400 calories stir fried beef Marriott, and it was delicious! Also offering hot sandwiches would be another good option. just that sometimes i'd feel like having a hot meal, not a salad or a cold sandwich. I though of heating my roast beef sandwich, but I was loving it too much i couldn't get myself for a minute to heat it up. And wraps! I love wraps, and they would save on the calories too! and cut up fruits maybe, that would be cool. I'm also wondering why the calories are not written on the drinks, I didn't order any, and not really planning to, but I think it makes more sense that they would have counted their calories too.Now i feel like I just wrote an article! LOL I guess thats more than enough for a review.
I have only had delivery so atmosphere rating is for delivery.. Delivery was prompt and courteous. The Veggie Salad was crisp with a generous array of various greens and excellent dressing. The roast beef panini was real roast beef with tomato, caramelized onions, and a pleasant sauce. Better than any I've had in Cairo. Their packaging for delivery is also excellent so there's no worry about finding your salad squashed or the dressing all over the bag. I will become a regular!
