“Menu-overwhelm” can be defined as follows: “That thing that happens when you go to a restaurant and it has so many delicious vegan options that you panic when the waiter asks you what you want.” At True Food Kitchen, the menu-overwhelm is real, you guys. How are we expected to choose between vegan pizza topped with dairy-free almond ricotta and a tempeh, lettuce, and tomato sandwich? And don’t even get us started on sides and desserts.
All jokes aside, we’re so happy to see such a variety of vegan options at True Food Kitchen. Don’t get us wrong—we love a good grilled veggie plate as much as the next vegan, but restaurants like True Food are recognizing that more and more people are going vegan to protect animals, the environment, and their health, which calls for a varied mix of vegan fare on the menu.
Breakfast or Brunch
Vegan Chorizo Bowl: This savory breakfast option comes with jicama slaw and sweet corn.
Kale & Coconut and Banana & Date Smoothie: These refreshing smoothies are completely dairy-free.
Sunrise Bowl: To make this bowl vegan, simply ask for no eggs.
To Share (or not—no judgment here)
Charred Cauliflower: Extra tahini, please—and thank you!
