Last month, I got word that a new health-driven, seasonal restaurant was coming to town (cue my happy dance!). I've always wondered why we didn't have more local eateries geared towards cleaner and healthier eating and so this was something that I got really excited about.
I had an opportunity to visit True Food Kitchen in King of Prussia just before heading out on vacation a couple of weeks ago before they formally opened, and was not disappointed.
It was a hot and muggy day when I stopped into True Food Kitchen, so one of the first things my guest and I did was order a nice cold drink. We both opted for the Sparkling Antioxidant Tea (organic iced green tea, pomegranate, lemon) and LOVED it. It had the fizz of a soda, but was so much better for us and didn't make us feel bloated while we sipped and ate. I honestly can't even describe the flavor, you need to check it out for yourself. So good though, I could drink those all day long.
Next, we ordered the Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon appetizer (marcona almond, white balsamic, chèvre). Not only was it beautiful to look at, but it was so fresh and gave us something to nibble on without feeling completely stuffed before our meals came out.
I'd been a few weeks gluten-free by this point, and I was hardcore craving a "cheat meal" to celebrate with and so imagine my delight when I found a healthy way to do this ... a vegan Heirloom Tomato pizza (grilled artichoke, roasted garlic, vegan almond ricotta, black truffle)! While it wasn't gluten-free, the crust was thin enough to allow me to indulge without feeling like I'd just scarfed up a loaf of bread.
That ricotta... it's like all of the good things in life wrapped up into one non-dairy cheese product. It had the same velvety texture of ricotta, a slightly different flavor but more flavor, and honestly I could have sat there just eating a bowl of that. I'm also not a big tomato sauce person, but love tomatoes, so I was pleased that this was more of a white pizza.
My guest ordered the Smoked Turkey Wrap (avocado, tomato, cucumber, provolone, hummus) and found that it was more filling than it looked because it was so packed with healthy protein and veggies!
Rachel (my guest) and I, are never ones to pass up dessert and we decided to share the Key Lime Pie (coconut chantilly). Unlike me, Rachel has been to Key West and has tried the real deal so we were anxious to see what her comparison would be! Good news: she gave it two thumbs up and said it was legit!
In all, we had an amazing lunch and I'm honestly so excited to go back and try out other menu options (let's be honest, I'm going to be getting that heaven sent pizza again). Their menu clearly outlines the Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free choices, which makes ordering a breeze.
