I recently went for lunch with some co-workers, including our top chef, which as I’ve mentioned before, is always a treat. We sampled nearly everything on the menu and were impressed by it all. Health benefits aside, the food is simple but delicious, and well portioned. The atmosphere was casual cool, where we felt comfortable on a lunch break but others in yoga gear were equally welcome.
We each started with a Natural Refreshment, which the server described as True Food’s alternative to sodas. I went with the Medicine Man, a natural “antioxidant blast” with sea buckthorn, pomegranate, cranberry, black tea & soda.
We shared the Shiitake & Tofu Lettuce Cups, Salmon Dip, Edamame Duplings and Albacore Tataki.
For my main course, I had the Farm Chopped Salad topped with grilled salmon, while others ordered the Miso Soup, Panang Curry and the Wild Mushroom Pizza.
Taking advantage of a rather large crowd, we ordered almost the entire dessert menu to taste – my personal favorite was the Chia Seed Pudding.
