If you don’t know by now, Healthy Junk has opened a second location a mere walking distance from its first site on Center Street Promenade. The food is great, the concept brilliant: conscious comfort food, but why have two spots so close? The better question is why not?
By taking over a former pizza spot on the upstairs level of the Packing House, (across from Han’s Homemade Ice Cream) the CtrCity favorite was able to expand its menu to include pizzas either made with fresh Italian dough or a cauliflower crust. The pizzas include vegan takes on both familiar basic pies like the “Just Chez” (red sauce and mozzarella) or more inventive creations like the “Chorizo Ole!” with spicy chorizo, red sauce, spinach, jalapenos, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro sauce.
Both the burger and salad bowl menus are different from the original location. New dessert menu items include the “My Style Chez Cake” with strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate available as an add-on. As well as chocolate[JG1] , vanilla or swirl soft-serve cones. The kid’s menu is the same with the exception of a spaghetti swirl (made with broccoli trees) and a kid’s pizza. The juice menu has expanded and smoothies, shakes, and soda is also available.
For Kenny Dena, a lifelong Anaheim resident and who alternates eating vegan and vegetarian, Healthy Junk has long been one favorite eating out option. The busy graphic designer and drummer in Don’t Push, a local Sublime cover band, likes the additional options the expanded location gives him and his young family.
“I was disappointed when they stopped serving pizzas at the first location,” he tells us. “However, I was thrilled when I found out they opened a new spot at the Packing House with an expanded pizza menu. My favorite item is the sausage pizza; the flavors are amazing and the almond ricotta is very clever…even my meat-eating co-workers loved it!”
And when you have two little kids five and under, having a little something to please everyone makes for some happy eating!
