Excellent vegan bah mi sandwich
Posted on 09 / 09 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and have eaten here a few times since it first opened in 2011. Was just here again in August 2012. Here's my True Food Kitchen Santa Monica Place review.
The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Santa Monica Place shopping plaza. It's huge with both indoor and outdoor seating. The kitchen and juice bar is open, so you can see the action there.
While the menu is not pure veg, the vegetarian and vegan dishes are labeled.
The lunch and dinner menus are similar. The lunch menu is divided into sections: starters (1 vegan, 3 veg), salads (0 vegan, 3 veg), pizza (1 vegan, 3 veg), sandwiches (0 vegan, 1 veg which was a tempeh burger that can be made vegan by omitting mayonaise), main entrees (1 vegan, 2 veg).
- the personal size tomato and kale pizza (vegan, no cheese), $12. All right.
- the bah mi tofu sandwich served with side of sweet potato has, $10. Excellent taste.
- the brown rice bowl with tofu, $?. Didn't care for it.
- and some side veggies on a fish plate that was yummy.
Overall, it's a good place to come with meat-eaters; everyone can get something tasty. It's also the place to grab a great bah mi sandwich, and at only $10, it's a bargain considering you are in lovely downtown Santa Monica.
PS. Once I saw Howie Mandel from America's Got Talent TV show just as he was leaving the restaurant.
vegan friendly, vegetarian friendly, relaxed and nice
