I was surprised at how delicious all the food was! The coconut yogurt (fake yogurt like substance) tasted like yogurt even though the wasn’t any dairy in it! The Chocolate Mousse didn’t taste like Chocolate Mousse but it was delicious and the base ingredient is avocado! Which is a staple in my current diet! The Matcha Tea and Chia seed was also delicious! It’s flavors were layered nicely! At $6-8 I would buy all of the products again, but not too often!

The Dragon’s Breath was $4 and wasn’t bad the flavors were layered first the lemon then the ginger and pow the cayenne! I saved it for preworkout and it was nice!
I want to try to reverse engineer it for myself! It seems easy enough to make.

As you know from reading my blog, I do not like chains! This is an exception! I have previously reviewed muscle maker on my old Facebook group Martial Arts for Life! before I had a problem with Facebook (fuck fb!) anyway, this place is amazing!

The food is great and healthy! The only thing I do not like (because of my heritage) is the marinara sauce. Other then that it is amazing!

They have a great orange color Caesar like sauce, called Arizona sauce! Looks like its Caesar with paprika.

They have amazing affordable sides that you can make into a meal.
I order: 4 hardboiled eggs and a side of grilled chicken or a side of broccoli and a side of steak.

If you haven’t been there check it out!
I frequent the Wayne & Parsippany NJ locations. I have also been to the Oakland, Long Branch and Colonia locations.

*Colonia is tiny! one nice thing is they have outdoor seating!

In case you are tired of the usual pizza and chinese delivery, Muscle Maker even delivers!!!
