Daily Clean Food and Drink has the perfect combination of healthy and delicious foods to make it a restaurant like no other in Sioux Falls.

Daily Clean Food and Drink is located around 69th Street and Western Avenue and was opened back in 2018. The restaurant focuses on clean eating and the majority of their menu features foods that are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, keto, low carb, dairy-free, low calorie, grain-free, nut-free and organic. Their menu has a wide variety of foods and customers never know what to expect when they receive their food. After multiple visits to Daily Clean Food and Drink, I can say the restaurant is one of the most unique restaurants in the Sioux Falls area.

The location is easy to access and find. The environment is very welcoming and a great place to sit down and enjoy a meal. When customers walk in, they order right away and then pick where they would like to sit. They have a lower level area, an upstairs area that overlooks the whole restaurant and a patio. The service is pleasant and fast, so students could go during the open lunch period.

Daily Clean Food and Drink was one of the few restaurants from South Dakota to be featured in “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” In the episode, it featured the co-owner of the restaurant, Shaley Bolks. The foods they displayed were the No Bull Burger and the Mightiest Mac. Guy Fieri seemed to enjoy both dishes on the show.

When I went to Daily Clean Food and Drink I tried the Sweet Potato Fries, Tongue Thai’d Bowl and The Mighty Mac. The Sweet Potato Fries have a crunchy bite and are seasoned to make it some of the best sweet potato fries I have tried. They do come in smaller portion sizes, so after finishing you might want to order more. The Tongue Thai’d Bowl has many different variations you can add to the bowl. The bowl I got had a base of wild rice, free-range chicken and a creamy peanut sauce. Overall, I would say the bowl had a variety of flavors I never knew could be so delicious together. The last item I tried was the Mighty Mac, which is a healthier version of Mac and Cheese. It is like the Mightiest Mac, but it does not have the spicy sauce or the bison meatballs. It is made with chickpea penne noodles with house-made butternut squash and sharp cheddar cheese sauce. The Mighty Mac does not have a lot of flavor, but it is still an item I would have to try again. 

Daily Clean Food and Drink is also known for its amazing smoothie bowls. I have tried them in the past and they are definitely one of my favorites. They have a variety of different bowls and they are served to you looking very picture-worthy. Their pizza is another hit item on their menu, but it is only served from 4-7 p.m. The pizza has many variations, so the customers can change it up to their liking. They have gluten-free cauliflower crust, vegan sausage and vegan cheese.

Many of their items have an interesting flavor to them, and it can be hard to know if you will like the items you have ordered. Other than that, the restaurant has delicious and healthy food along with a welcoming environment. I recommend everyone to try Daily Clean Food and Drink to get a change from other restaurants.
