If you follow my twitter, you may have picked up on my obsession with True Food Kitchen. It’s a recent addition to the Santa Monica Place mall (they have multiple locations, one being at Fashion Island for all my OC peeps!) and it’s pretty much my new favorite place. To put it bluntly: the food is damn good.
But not only is the food good tasting, it’s also good for you. Everything on the menu is extremely fresh, wholesome, and full of vitamins. They really focus on the individual ingredients and even grow their own herbs and some vegetables on property. I can’t wait to try every single thing on the menu (even their cocktails are bomb.com by the way).
Foodie tip: for lunch, order a sandwich – they come with a sweet potato hash and a tuscan kale salad. For dinner, order multiple things and share – you’ll want to try the many different options on the menu, from the wild mushroom pizza to the ahi tuna sliders.
Here are some photos from my last trip there:
[they grow their own herbs right in front of the restaurant]
[each table has an adorable succulent plant…extra points in my book]
[heirloom tomato & watermelon salad w/ goat cheese & roasted cashews]
[corn & ricotta ravioli in a roasted tomato & parmesan broth]
[chicken sausage pizza w/ tomatoes, fennel, & fontina cheese]
[strawberry rhubarb crisp w/ vanilla ice cream…I almost passed out when I ate this, it was that good]
Beautiful photos! My favorite is the one with the herb box 🙂
I think I will go just for that dessert alone. It looks mouth watering.
Yummy!! Can we go there when I come and have a sleepover at your house in July??
I rarely comment on food blogs but I have to agree with you on that Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp – it was exceptional!!! I have subsequently had 4 more at different restaurants trying to match the flavor but to none could compare.
