Albanian cuisine basically includes meat, meat, meat, more meat and beans. OK, I’m exaggerating just a little bit, but after some time here you will certainly come to appreciate being served anything with vegetables a lot more!
Thankfully, some modern, healthy eateries are starting to pop up throughout Tirana. This is one such addition and let me tell you, I are very grateful for Greeny’s arrival to the culinary scene here! This is the only true salad bar that I know of in Tirana and it provides an excellent alternative to the fattier fast food available.
We’re talking salads, baby! Lots and lots of fresh, delicious salads which can be served at one of the three tables in their beautifully-decorated wood themed shop or packaged up for you to take home. They offer delivery as well. The menu is extensive and features vegan, vegetarian or carnivorous options all clearly categorized on their menu.
Everything is fresh and most importantly delicious! When ordering the “Sallatë Karkalec” (Prawn/Shrimp Salad), we observed them heading straight to the fresh fish shop to take the prawns and barbecuing them on their grill immediately upon return. Couldn’t be fresher unless I got it from the fisherman myself!
Keeping in theme, Greeny’s offered a range of freshly made juices for you to wash down your meal. The focus here really is on making sure you are putting top quality, healthy ingredients in your belly. Table water is slightly flavoured with citrus fruits such as lemon or lime.
You’ll often see the owners present during the day and with such a small space for the restaurant, it’s easy to observe staff preparing your meal. All have been really lovely during all interactions and everyone works together as a cohesive team. Just another little detail that makes this such a good option for a healthy lunch or dinner.
