Maybe you’re on your way to Downtown LA.
You’re hungry and could spare a detour to stuff your face.
Your taste buds feign for those golden fries but your head and stomach know that’s a mistake.
Or maybe, you’re not sure if it’s a date, in which case, you might just want to take her to the right place, just to be safe.
Whatever your case, good, fast, healthy food seems to get harder to find and easier to crave, and Subway already seems to get too overplayed. So we need a new spot where all of our senses can enjoy a filling plate, and neither you or your date will feel guilty about what you just ate. That spot COC students is Sylmars Fix.
Well worth the 15 minute drive from COC’s Valencia Campus, “The Fixx” as locals call it, has established itself as a well known “healthy alternative” eating establishment.
All their dishes use fresh ingredients as they utilize local businesses and produce, which in return supports Sylmar’s community. They also use environmentally friendly beverage containers made from plant cellulose.
They have fresh and healthy signature dishes such as Breakfast Croissants, Panini’s, Salads, Wraps, cold and hot Pastas, and even signature desserts and smoothies that keep your senses happy.
Delivery options are available via the application “Eat 24” but there is a $3 delivery fee added to a minimum purchase of $20. You can also order from their website.
“It can be expensive [at almost $8 a plate],” said Dennis a customer I interviewed as he was leaving the establishment. “But it’s delicious to the point where I don’t care about the price; they also don’t mind using their ingredients ensuring the full flavor at every bite.”
You don’t have to take my positive appraisal of this place as the only motive to lure you into the establishment.
“They packed on the avocado and cheese,” wrote Armando A. in his web testimonial. “It’s nice having something in Sylmar that isn’t fast food or Mexican food for a change. Service was really friendly too.”
“A true gem in Sylmar is no joke,” wrote Lynlee B. in her web testimonial. “If you want great fresh food you have to try the Fixx.”
Their websites homepage reads, “Healthy alternatives such as Fresh Juices, Smoothies and an Expresso Bar! Inventive Healthy Salads, Fresh produce and baked goods used daily. The Fix has original recipes specializing in homemade spreads and specialties that feature chicken, turkey, tuna and fresh vegetables.”
