Hello True Food Kitchen @ The Point!

“Honest food that tastes really good.”

That phrase is painted on the wall of True Food Kitchen at The Point and was the first thing I noticed when I walked in. Yes, once again Hello Kitty Foodie is at South Bay’s newest destination for shopping, dining and entertainment and this time it is to check out True Food. Kitchen.

Ever since The Point opened and ever since I spotted True Food Kitchen I have been intrigued with this restaurant’s concept. Their website says “You don’t have to be a die-hard Yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen. You need only a desire to give your body nutrients, and your palate something memorable.” I love Yoga but in no means am a Yogi either. I am all for happiness, health and overall balance however and reading that on True Food’s website made me just want to try this place out.

One happy and relaxing Friday afternoon, I took some much needed “me time” and checked this place out. With a beautiful wide open space feel including an open kitchen, I instantly took a liking to True Food Kitchen
I learned that their menu is seasonal. Currently they are on Volume One: Summer menu. A menu consisting of various starters, pizza, salads, sandwiches, entrees and drinks, I was first attracted to their “Natural Refreshers” They have all kinds of house made drinks consisting of natural ingredients like coconut, turmeric, ginger etc. It’s reminded me of being at a juice bar. I loved the various names of their drinks to. They have “Medicine Man,” “Kale-Aid,” and “Hangover Rx” among the cute names
Upon talking to the waitress, I learned their “Sparkling Watermelon Soda” was their most popular drink and I decided to order that. When my watermelon soda came out, I knew instantly I would like this drink. Pretty in pink and made with watermelon, lime, cane sugar and sparkling water, it had Hello Kitty written all over it ;). The pretty presentation was matched with a pretty good taste as well because it was so refreshing. it was perfect for the hot summer day! The drink is not too sweet but definitely has that great watermelon taste. I was a fan of the pieces of fresh watermelon that was on top of the drink.

To match my sweet sip, I need some savory bites and once again upon the recommendation of the friendly staff at True Food Kitchen, I chose to get a dish they suggested, the street tacos. Their street tacos come in a trio with either grass-fed steak or sustainable fish and is topped with avocado, cotija cheese, tomatillo salsa, sour cream and anasazi bean. Being a non-fish eater, the grass-fed steak was my natural choice of meat. I loved the light tortillas that were packed with toppings! There was a generous amount of meat, veggies and more! I have to say my favorite topping was the cotija cheese. This really enhanced the flavor of the taco. The grass fed beef was great as well. It was perfectly lean and tender.

Overall the street tacos and the watermelon soda made for quite a tasty meal that made this Hello Kitty Foodie smile! My favorite is that everything was so fresh! Farmy fresh happiness! From their natural refresher to their tacos made with grass fed steak, it was a healthy, happy meal. Here at True Food Kitchen they say “health starts with gratitude” and I can definitely say I am grateful for my visit here!
