The other day I drove down to Fashion Valley after work and met my sister for lunch. I mean dinner. I mean lunch. Lunner? Dinch? She was on her lunch break, but it was technically my dinner because I’m lazy and had no intentions of cooking after eating at 4pm. She’s kind of a big deal where she works, does fancy things at a fancy store in Fashion Valley. She’s also a writer. And a D.J. Anyway, enough about my cute sister (hi sisser!). We ate! At this place. True Food Kitchen. It was quite good.
They have these little bathtubs at the entrance with herbs spilling out of them, they’re just adorable. And is a testament to how fresh their food is, since those are the herbs they use in the food they cook.
I suddenly want a bathtub full of herbs on my patio.
I had the chicken chopped salad which had cranberry, date, jicama, manchego, farro, sprouted almond and champagne vinaigrette. I really have no idea what farro is, and I’m afraid of dates, but it was still so good. Plenty of food, I didn’t leave hungry, and the $6 wine was delish.
The bathroom had a co-ed hand washing station. That was interesting. So much for gussying up in the bathroom for your date, because your date is right there next to you washing his hands! I was down with it, though. I totally dug the decor of the whole place, White chairs and yellow chairs, bright cushions on the benches, both inside and the patio were really great. We ate on the patio, and even though it was hot outside, it was a good temperature out there.
My sister said they have amazing smoothies, too. If you’re willing to brave the constant Fashion Valley parking lot traffic, skip the food court and make your way to True Food!
