True Food Kitchen
Posted on 05 / 11 / 2013
The True Food Kitchen menu is based off of Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. Per their website the 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.” Sounds good to me and worth a visit.
There are 2 True Food Kitchen locations in the Phoenix area, both located in upscale shopping areas. We checked out the location at Biltmore Fashion Park. The location is very easy to find as it’s seen from the road. Paid parking that can be easily made free after validating a chip from your dining/purchases is available. In addition, there is a free lot on the opposite side of the shopping park.
I absolutely loved the openness of the restaurant with it’s brightness and open kitchen. There were literally people preparing food several feet from us. They definitely don’t have anything to hide in their kitchen.
Upon quick glance of the menu I found a couple vegan options to choose from and had a tough time deciding between “Andy’s Favorite ‘TLT’” and the “Teriyaki Brown Rice Bowl”. I decided on Andy’s Favorite “TLT” which Tempeh, Lettuce. Tomato. Avocado, Vegenaise, and Whole Grain Bread. I had the choice to pair it with a kale salad or sweet potato hash and went with the hash.
I’d say our experience at True Food Kitchen was unique and I would visit again. Although I must say the prices are a bit steep for the amount of food you receive. I understand it’s healthier food and often that comes with a price tag, but $10 for a basic sandwich is a bit much in my opinion.
