1997 Best Salad, Chicken

Baker’s Best

This delicious salad might well tempt a vegetarian to reconsider. Perfectly diced pieces of chicken are tossed in a light mayonnaise that hints of fresh herbs. The shop is also a good all-purpose pit stop, either for lunch or as you’re heading home after work. It boasts a varied selection of excellent takeaway meals, side dishes, and desserts.
