Field & Social Vancouver is a brand new salad bar on fleek. It is a recently opened new healthy eats restaurant located on Dunsmuir between Homer and Richards Street. Stephen Collins and Moe Samieian brings office lunches new excitement with vegan and gluten free options that don’t bore you to sleep! Say NO to boring lunches!
The space itself is something I would love to call home. Shiny copper industrial pendant lamps, marble, wooden tables / counters seats draped with a high ceiling white walls!
Gone are the days of weight your own salads that are bland and expensive! Field & Social’s line up of green leafs, seeds and add ons like chicken breast / thigh, pulled beef and Ajitama ramen egg will seriously have you rethink chowing on that fast food greasy burger.
Sen Lek Smoked Tofu 12.50 (VEG): Packed full of different textures and delicious wholesome goodness. This reminds me of a bowl of Vietnamese nướng. Rice noodles, Ramen egg, smoked tofu, shiitake mushrooms, sautéed vegetables, scallions, sesame seeds, sweet herbs, hazelnuts and crispy shallots and roasted hazelnut sauce with chili and lime. I added chicken thighs to it to give it some extra protein before a serious workout with ClassPass.

Local Lift Juice Bar in North Vancouver recently had a 3 day juice cleanse deal for $79 for 18 bottles of fresh pressed juice, herbal teas. $20 bottle deposit was requested afterwards because I wasn’t picking up the juices daily. I have always loved detoxing and resetting my body for a healthy start.
Local Lift Juice Bar 3 Day Juice Cleanse Consists of:
- 18 jars of fresh juices in mason jars
- 3 lemons (1 for each day)
- 3 cups of master cleanse mixture (12 oz cup each)
- a bunch of spirulina tablets (2500 mg)
- herbal tea bags
I have done a few juice cleanses. Comparing the prices and quality of the juice cleanses itself, I have to say my favorite is still The Juice Truck and The Juicery Co.. I will pay $195 no problem.
I did not enjoy this juice cleanse form Local Lift Juice Bar at all. Let my tell you why.
- Inconsistency and quality of each bottle
- No instructions for the juice cleanse
- No labels of ingredients
- Packaging (or lack thereof)
- Healthy and safety concerns
The problem with this juice cleanse is that it comes with no instructions. There are no description that comes with any of the juice bottles. No ingredients labeled.
I am not interested to visit their website and research what I am drinking in a “liquid facial” juice. That is silly.
I asked if there was “a specific order I should consume this cleanse?” The answer was “it doesn’t matter. Or if you must, drink the greener juices in during the day.” Puzzling.
There is no protein like shake, an almond milk or nut mylk mixture. I later found out there are spirulina tablets which acts as a protein replacement.
What bothered me the most was the inconsistency of each bottle of juice. The lackluster commitment to produce the best juice cleanse for the consumer.
- The juices are not filled to the brim and sealed.
- Oxygen promotes oxidization. See above photo.
- Some juices had more volume than others.
- By day 2, some juices were browning.
Master cleanse drinks were packaged in to go paper coffee cups. By the time it arrived home, the cups were mangled inside the red plastic trays.
The spirulina tablets were loosely packaged in pastry take out bags. Some were crushed and broken. I simply did not feel very safe taking these pills. There were again no instructions as to how many or how frequently I should be taking there spirulina tablets. I may know what spirulina tablets are. But does an average consumer? Again, there were no instructions or descriptions what these pills are.
If you are wondering. Spirulina tablets are blue green algae, 100% natural highly nutritious micro salt water plant. Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein. Spirulina health benefits include a boost to the immune system, improved digestion, controls appetite and contains a wide range of minerals.
I could not complete the juice cleanse from The Local Lift Juice Bar simply because I did not feel that it was a cleanse. I simply drank the juice as a orange juice drink, beet juice drink or whatnot.
Other facts about The Local Lift Juice Bar juice cleanse:
- The juice cleanse does not come with any packaging.
- The bottles were provided in plastic trays.
- $20 bottle deposit required for the 3 day juice cleanse.
- Pick up only. No delivery available.
I do not recommend this as juice cleanse or meal replacement. However, it may be a deal if you are looking for some fresh juices for normal consumption.

Heirloom Vancouver Brunch time is a fairly special treat. The clean crisp white space is intriguing and cozy at the same time. I would suggest you request a seat by the fireplace or by the window to absorb the natural light. Heirloom Vegetarian offers contemporary dining with fresh cocktails, organic wine list, and local craft beers. Who says you can’t drink on Meatless Mondays? But before you jump to conclusions about eating cardboard and erasers; Heirloom is focused on fair traded ingredients and super foods. Better yet, they are open for Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch from 9am to 4pm.
Gentlemen, do not fret! You will not go home hungry. Or worse, hangry. The food is actually quite filling and won’t leave you in a comatose!
Taco Salad (v, gfo) 15.95: black beans, organic quinao and red onions with cilantro and corn. Served in a whole-wheat tortilla bowl with chilli lime vinaigrette. This bean salad is healthy low carb meal that is easy to make at home. But Heirloom’s chili lime vinaigrette makes it extra delicious!
Daily Soup (gfo, v) 8.95: Today’s soup is cream of broccoli. Heirloom daily soup is always vegan and gluten-free. Served with toasted sourdough or gluten-free muffin. Unlike most cream of anything, their soup is thick with fresh vegetables.
Heirloom Scramble (gf, vo) 14.95: scrambled eggs (or tofu), quinoa, kale, seasonal vegetables with sesame mirin sauce. Served with green salad and roasted beets. This lighter and more filling egg scramble is packed with super foods such as kale, quinoa and tons of healthy fibers.
Bottom line, we love the feeling of being full without that heaviness that drags you down. We can’t wait to revisit and taste Heirloom vegetarian dinner menu.
