Important note: Since this updated Good Stock restaurant review was written, I have changed my approach from weight management to Health at Every Size and intuitive eating. The recommendations here were intended for the pursuit of weight loss, an approach that is no longer aligned with my beliefs and brand. Keep this in mind as you read through the post.
Good Stock Restaurant Review - Updated
It’s still good! You all know I love Good Stock. It’s in my regular rotation of restaurants because it’s affordable, delicious and less than a five-minute walk from my apartment. I reviewed it in January and felt it needed a revisit because of the warmer weather and the addition of some exciting items. The soups are still great, as are the salads. The changes to report are the following:
- Good Stock recently added sandwiches to the menu, which I’m happy to report are très excellent. They use Bien Cuit sandwich bread, which is hearty and extremely filling.
- Entrée-size portions of salads are now available
- You can add avocado, egg or chicken to any salad
- You can now purchase their brownies in larger sizes
Back in January, I lauded Good Stock for its genius soup and salad concept since it’s not always easy to find veggie-forward meals that actually taste good. But I think it was a smart move to bring in the sandwich options, especially since the warmer months may not make people automatically inclined towards soup. I should point out that for the warmer months, they will have cold soups like gazpacho available. It’s more reason to love this place.
Service: lunch and dinner only
Vibe: casual, dip in and out
Good For: quick sit-down meal by yourself or with another person, to-go or delivery
Standout Dishes: Tomato Soup, Coconut Chicken Soup, Maryland Crab Soup, Chicken Salad Sandwich, Grilled Cheese
Heads Up: I find a small soup and small salad plus the bread to be plenty for a meal. For men, larger versions of these should be enough. If you’re doing a sandwich and salad, purchase a large salad because this will probably be enough for 1.5-2 meals.
For IBS-ers, most of the soups contain onion and garlic. The salads will often contain low FODMAP-friendly ingredients.
Overall Rating: 3 (Great)
I hope this Good Stock restaurant review was good! This remains an Eathority favorite because of the high-quality ingredients and tasty salad, soup, and sandwich options.
