#28: The Moorestown Mall


When rain and stormy weather strike—and there has been no shortage of either of the two this summer—there’s always one place in New Jersey that’s dry and safe, and that’s the Moorestown Mall. I ventured there a few days ago to beat the terrible weather. The mall itself is really nicely decorated; fountains throughout the mall and in the food court create a comforting and inviting ambience. The food court itself was clean, with a fairly large selection to choose from, including the Jersey mall-staple Saladworks. The layout of the mall is a little abnormal, which at times can make it difficult to follow or find what you’re looking for, but overall it’s not too confusing. The mall feels empty at times, with many vacant storefronts and even fewer passerby (I was there on a Saturday night—what typically would seem like a fairly crowded mall time). But mall rats and shop-a-holics need not worry, because the stores that are there are quite nice—Lord and Taylors, American Eagle, Hollister, several jewelry stores and several other typical mall stores. All in all? The Moorestown Mall is definitely an enjoyable place to spend a few hours!

Tomorrow I’m going down the shore, so I’ll be sure to share some of the fun with you guys! Remember you can follow me on Twitter @thenewnewjersey to get the latest updates!

#19: Saladworks


I’m sure everyone here can relate to going to the mall. I go a lot. And when I go, I love to eat. I always start off a fun night with my friends at Saladworks, so I was shocked to learn that they currently only exist in New Jersey and Florida. Locations around the country are coming soon, so hopefully I can convince you to try it when they come to your area!

Saladworks is a staple in most New Jersey malls, and a few stand-alone locations too. Their specialty is, obviously, salads! You can choose from a pre-created one made with fresh ingredients or make your own. Every topping imaginable is available—my favorites are pasta and ham. Each salad comes with a fresh white or wheat roll. If you’re not a salad person, they also offer wraps, paninis or soups.

The food is clearly healthy; according to their website the chicken Caesar salad has roughly 290 calories (that’s a big bowl too!) and the garden deluxe has 239. At around $8 to build your own, they are slightly pricey, but it’s definitely worth it!

Next time you’re in New Jersey, definitely make it a point to stop in Saladworks. And who knows, maybe soon, one will open near you!

Until next time,
