Inside the Kitchen: Assembli
Assembli is full of options for those who are craving something healthy without totally surrendering the tasty side too. Pizza and salad are two universally loved meals, why not pair them together? That’s exactly what Assembli did, and customers have never looked back!
Assembli first opened in May 2017, with locations on Cambie and West Hastings in Vancouver, and the recently opened Church Street spot in Toronto. The founders wanted to create a menu that was healthy, tasty, refreshing, and guilt-free. They considered a plethora of possibilities to satisfy their idea, but ultimately settled on salad and pizza, because who doesn’t love salad and pizza? The food is fresh, fast, and most importantly, it’s good for you. You won’t get that icky, heavy, why-did-I-devour-all-that feeling with Assembli’s quality ingredients. In addition to delivering on the promise of quality, the owners at Assembli also wanted to make sure that the vibe was 100% customer-friendly. In order to do this, they make ordering as personalized and simple as possible. Everyone has different cravings, so why give customers a pre-set menu? At Assembli, customers are able to pick and choose from a wide variety of ingredients to create a dish that is uniquely delicious and uniquely them.
Feeling like a salad? Or are you craving a pizza? Or, alternatively, are you in the mood for a pizza that is heavy on the salad? At Assembli, you’re welcome to enjoy the best of both worlds. How does it work? If pizza is on your mind (and really, when isn’t pizza on the mind), you get to choose the leaf, crust, select from a seemingly endless list of toppings, and finish it off with your choice of drizzle. The salad works the same. And the best part? No more surprises at the cash register. At Assembli, you can build the pizza or salad of your dreams at a set price. Assembli wants their customers to create a pizza or salad that suits their craving, so why limit the number of toppings they can add?
In the event that you don’t feel like building your own, Assembli also offers a range of signature salads and pizzas that you can choose from. The Cauli Curry Spin, for example, consists of roasted cauliflower, mozzarella, chopped spinach, green onion, cilantro, curry tomato sauce, and is topped with a yogurt drizzle. Customers can also choose from the 6-inch classics—cheese, pepperoni, and classic Hawaiian. Want to pair your pizza or salad with a drink? If you’re of drinking age, Assembli offers a selection of local and imported beers and ciders to complete your meal.
For those gluten-free eaters, do not fret! Pizzas are available with a gluten-free crust. Most of Assembli’s salads and bowls are gluten-free, too. That’s the beauty of build-your-own. When it comes to ingredients, Assembli uses only the best quality stuff: fresh, non-GMO, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, and local and organic whenever possible.
