Tractor Foods has their original location in Kitsilano, but they recently opened up their second location in the Marine Building on Burrard Street. They mostly sell a variety of salads, soup, and sandwiches. They are quite popular with the weekday work crowd. I find that it’s a nice alternative in the area.
It’s a good place to eat out if you have a few food restrictions. They cater to people with nut allergies, vegan, gluten free or dairy free.
When you line up, it’s kinda like an assembly line where you pick and choose item that you want. The staff are nice and friendly too.
Don’t order too much or else it will get a bit pricey.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts salad ($3.25) has toasted hazelnuts, radicchio, italian parsley, double smoked bacon, apricot mustard vinaigrette. It is dairy free and gluten free. I enjoyed the whole hazelnuts as it added a lot of texture to the salad.
Pork Sandwich (Half – $5) has roast pork, wild arugula, tomato, roasted garlic aioli, and provolone cheese on a sourdough bread. Pretty decent sandwich and its grilled nicely too.
Kimchi salad ($3.25) has green cabbage, pickled carrots, clantro, mint, green onions, and sesame. It is nut-free, vegan, dairy free and gluten free.
Albacore tuna steak with grilled lemon $5 (2 oz) is a nice addition to any salad as it’s full of flavour and lightly seared on each side.
Overall, it’s an awesome cafeteria-style restaurant, plus great for the Downtown lunch crowd. If I had days where I feel like a little bit health conscious, I’ll definitely be back.
