Oh my Squash! Welcome to New Orleans. I have been following True Food kitchen for a while. Once the story broke online, I stalked them. I had been wanting to try the food for the longest. I was invited to a soft opening, but my schedule wouldn't allow me to visit. Let's just say, I had a little fun with the camera in this beautiful restaurant. I like the spacious seating and paintings on the wall. The building is on Julia and St. Charles, can't miss it.
Vegan and Gluten friendly, they can also customize food for keto and paleo needs.
I also noticed those TVs by the bar area. It's not necessary, but it's a 'nice to have' item in a restaurant. It allows the guests to watch sports etc.
I wanted to try everything on the menu but, somehow narrowed it down. Definitely get a kale, ginger, apple, celery, cucumber and lemon it is well worth it for that energy boost.
I enjoyed the Salad made with Seasonal ingredient with Salmon. Butternut squash, cauliflower, brussels sprout, cannellin bean, organic kale, champagne vinaigrette, toasted mulberry, pomegranate. I am obsessed with brussels, so I really enjoyed this.
The Pizza was really good, it has Butternut squash made with caramelized onion, roasted garlic organic kale vegan, almond ricotta, dried cranberry and sage. The pizza has a unique taste and I especially liked the onion and garlic with cranberry.
The Graas - fed Burger was the best. It has Unami, mushrooms, caramelized onion, arugula, Parmesan, mayonnaise, flaxeed bun. I didn't have any guilt eating that burger. It was just GOOD!
For dessert, we shared a Flourless Chocolate Cake with caramel, almond, vanilla ice cream and cacao. It has a very light but rich chocolate taste.
For cocktails, we had the Juniper Rose, which was rose - infused gin, lime, grapefruit and tyme. It's a girly drink and tastes so fresh. The Rosé Sangria was made with organic rose' wine, spiced brandy, pineapple and lime. I enjoyed this drink because it was larger than the others. The Pom Collins was made with lemon - infused vodka, organic aloe liquer and pomegranate. I will definitely be back for the Pom Collins because I really like VODKA.
I definitely give this place high ratings in all areas. Give them a visit.
