Service: Food delivery

The Odd Pod invites guests in Melbourne to discover healthy and delicious food from the comfort of their home or office via a convenient online ordering service ( Currently offering 5 different menus for each of the 5 working days of the week, guests can enjoy an array of tempting salads. 
Founder, Tahl Katz started The Odd Pod a year ago on the back of a career in supply chain. He always had a passion for healthy food and clean, wholesome eating. Together with his talented sisters, Tahl’s passion soon translated into a salad delivery service, equipped with a unique salad menu that beats competing cafes by offering salads that are not only delicious and creative but also made from quality fresh ingredients.

Gastrology recently tried a few items from The Odd Pod’s Friday menu…
ZeChiChi Salad

ZeChiChi is a delicious salad of  succulent Middle Eastern spiced roasted chicken breast that is spiced up with Zaatar and laid over a bed of cos lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red capsicum, avocado and olives. This salad is then topped off with a few dollops of labne, spring onions, scattered pumpkin & sunflower seeds and a tangy citrus dressing. It was very tasty. We loved the addition of pumpkin and sunflower seeds which added a deliciously crunchy element to the salad.
 Carrot & Chooks Adventures in Morocco Salad

This was a lovely salad of tender roasted chicken breast which wereserved on a bed of baby spinach, carrots, green beans, snow peas, cucumber, avocado & coriander. The scattered walnuts add an earthy flavour and the tangy harissa infused dressing brings all the elements of the salad together.
Nazca Roast Salad

We loved this delicious vegetarian salad. The  eggplant, cauliflower, pumpkin and carrots are roasted to a golden perfection and marry well with  steamed green beans, seeds and baby spinach mixed throughout a quinoa base.

Our verdict:

The salads are a winner. We loved how unique and delicious each salad was and the use of nuts for crunch. We also loved how each salad’s dressing is thoughtfully kept separate to ensure the salads stay fresh. In a further layer of thoughtfulness, we are told that onion and garlic is kept to a minimum to avoid bad breath!
