You don’t have to be a die-hard Yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen. You need only a desire to give your body nutrients, and your palate something memorable. The basis for the anti-inflammatory diet isn’t meant to deprive a healthy body of great flavors, it’s meant to take popular trends in cuisine and pair them with healthy living.
With a wide, healthy selection of vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free options we offer something for everyone. Try the kale and quinoa, you’ll live longer. Drink the seabuckthorn and acai, you’ll feel better. At True Food Kitchen, we want you to feel better, live longer, and make your mouth happy in the process.

What I ordered: We took the suggestions and recommendations of my sister, starting with the Edamame Dumplings ($10) with daikon radish and white truffle oil.

The dumplings were followed by a breakfast order for my mom: the Market Vegetable Scramble ($10), a sweet potato hash, onion, mushroom, Parmesan, and three eggs.

My sister and I shared the Panang Curry with Chicken ($16), brown rice, potato, broccoli, ginger, carrot, mushroom & coconut shellfish broth,

as well as the Spaghetti Squash Casserole ($13) topped with fresh mozzarella, organic tomato & zucchini.

What I loved: The edamame dumplings were a breath of fresh air, sparkling with robust truffle flavor amidst a light miso broth and lightly bitter baby greens. Our panang curry was perfectly warm, coconut-y flavorful and the vegetables crisp, with fresh-from-the-garden taste and crunch. The spaghetti squash perfectly delicate, a complete pairing with tangy tomato and soft mozzarella.

Why I loved it: A satisfying, filling meal without the bloating nor uber-stuffed feeling of a typical restaurant meal.

Cost: Low to average ($9 – $20 per entree)
