Lunching The Good, Pure Way

This past weekend, my friend Grace and I met up at True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach’s Fashion Island to catch up over a healthy lunch (and go shopping, of course!). I just wanted to share this great place with you guys if you’re looking for a restaurant that serves organic, sustainable, and truly delicious food with a number of vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free options. Grace got the Shaved Turkey with provolone, yogurt dressing, and grape, and I got Andy’s Favorite TLT, a combination of tempeh, lettuce, tomato, and avocado on whole grain.

We rounded out the meal by sharing a banana chocolate tart, which was hands down my favorite part :)

Everything was really fresh and very filling, and all of the restaurants have a bright, fun atmosphere–great for a group brunch. You can see their locations and menusΒ here.

p.s. their salads and pizzas also looked amazing, which I’ll have to try next time!

        ooh I didn’t know they had a location in SM…do I dare say TFK has a chance at replacing Babycakes?!?

    The atmosphere looks amazing! I think at least half of going out to eat for me is good atmosphere and service. It delightful when you can find that AND good food!

      Diana, I completely agree! A restaurant’s ambiance really sets the tone of the entire eating experience…plus, it’s a great excuse to stay way after your last course and just keep hanging out!
