We give the option of a choice of foods that not only are adaptable to your taste, but that are coherent with your daily caloric needs. Because of this, we have created a wide menu, the range of which keeps getting vaster.

Aside from the traditional products, like hamburgers, fries, chicken products etc, you will find alternative products like pizzas, pitas, pasta, toasts and sandwiches and fresh and tasty salads, which besides being a separate dish, are also used as a garnish option replacing the fries.

To be conscious of making the desired product choice, means to know its nutritional values. Because of this we have tried to give you full informations about all of our products wherever is possible: on the packaging, on the menu card, on the tray paper and also on the calorie calculation table.

This is why we have placed the referring daily values which help you understand quickly and easily how to compose a balanced meal, or of what it should consists of.
