True Food Kitchen

Just stumbled upon this super healthy restaurant one day at the new Santa Monica mall. Everything is very affordable and fresh from LA's farmer's market! I absolutely loveee their fresh mixed drinks! The cucumber refresher is mixed with honey and lemon. It tastes so light and refreshing and was just $5. We ordered the Grass Fed Bison Burger with Sweet Potatoes ($16) with umami, mushroom, onion, mayo, parmesan, and flax seed bum. The Shirataki Noodles ($13) were really good and light. The noodles are made out of yams and taste like the Asian green bean noodles. It is mixed with green curry,  snap peas, asparagus, oyster mushrooms, and cashews. I would strongly recommend this dish! The portions pictured above are all half portions because they helped us split (with no extra charge). We were seated at the restaurant when it opened at 11:30am and by the time we were almost done, the entire restaurant was completely filled! Definitely coming back again.

Attempted to make our own grassfed burgers for the first time. I'd say it was pretty successful. Added some diced garlic, pepper, and salt in the beef before grilling it. We purchased a pound of it at the Pasadena Farmer's Market for $8.25. Also, tried used Ciabatta bread from Trader Joe's  instead of the usual hamburger buns. It made a very hearty dinner!
