Can we just talk about True Food Kitchen?

I went there today during for a lunch break ( yes, I peeled myself away the computer, which is like, almost impossible ).


True Food Kitchen.

Immediately I see they’re growing fresh herbs outside the restaurant, there’s a line out the door, & the atmosphere screams ‘CLEAN EATS.’ Think lots of veggies, fresh pressed juice, chia seeds, herbs, &/or no sick-o, sugary-filled condiments.

Basically the menu’s simple & all organic, sustainable, fresh foods.

We ordered juices & the fresh tortilla soup to split & then I choose the quinoa burger as an entree.


I’m a big open-facer so it was a great choice.

WTF’s a ‘big open-facer?’

Welp, I like my sandwiches open-faced.

Because a PB & J sandie is way better open-faced, FYI.

So naturally, the quinoa burger ( but open-faced ) was a win.

Anyway, point: if you’re ever in San Diego, make sure True Food Kitchen in Fashion Valley is on your itinerary.

& BTW: no one’s paying me to say this; I just really think this place is the shit.

Find the menu here & thank me later.

Sooooo good it hurts.

Happy Monday, X L

  • I LOVE True Food Kitchen. Their brunch menu and farm chopped salad are just amazing. ahhhh-mazing.

    And open-faced PB&Js are my ultimate comfort food!! Sooo much better than a regular PB&J.

    True Food Kitchen is absolutely the best!! They have these in Phoenix and Scottsdale too… Just an FYI if you are ever traveling here :)

    I used to work at a TFK in Arizona. The entire menu and concept is based on Dr. Weil’s anti inflammatory diet book, True Food, I highly recommend it! And my top menu pick is the crudité bowl– so good!

  • leslie

    there is one in dallas too! glad to know cali is making its way to texas :)

  • Tris

    I wish I had more places like this in my area, there’s literally nothing similar in Miami!

    Anyway, not sure if you’ve already done this but could you do a guide on clean eating? Specifically, what you eat/don’t eat?



    • I am working on a project now : )– it will include a daily eating plan! Is that what you’re looking for babe? x.
