The Fall Season is upon us and we are starting to see the change from summer heat to winter cold. Soon it will be the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. In preparation of the Christmas season; I find myself wanting more healthy and affordable food. Urban Plates Torrance is the perfect place for healthy, delicious food that won’t break the bank.
Urban Plates dishes are healthy, and scratch made. The chefs use organic whenever possible. Their beef is grass fed and grown in Australia and this is used in one of their more popular dishes; the Chimichurri Grass Fed Steak. The grass fed steak is topped with Argentinian herb sauce made out of fresh parsley, red bell pepper and purple onion. This steak dish comes with charbroiled rustic bread that comes from artisan bakers Urban Plates has partnered with. At only $15; it’s a dish well worth it’s value. It’s one of my top choices at Urban Plates not only because of it’s price but because it is so fulfilling and healthy.
Urban Plates menu changes with the season and this Fall; Urban Plates has the perfect dish for the season via the Lamb Osso Bucco. The lamb is also Australian grass fed. In this dish the lamb shank is slow cooked and served with mint gremolata and mashed potatoes. Not only is this a healthy and tasty dish; it is affordable at only $17. I loved how tender the lamb was. I could tell it was made out of quality ingredients!
One can indulge in several delightful desserts too at Urban Plates. Each dessert is baked and made fresh in house.
The Banana Cream Pie is a delightful pie with vanilla bean pastry cream, bananas, caramel sauce in a freshly baked graham cracker crust. It is topped with house made chocolate shavings. This is one of my favorite desserts here.
Another phenomenal dessert is Heaven and Hell. It’s angel food cake layered with devils food cake and topped with peanut butter cream cheese frosting. I was in (dessert) heaven after tasting this one.
Urban Plates has gluten free desserts too via their Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Rich and decadent; this is fabulous for chocolate lovers.
There is also the beautiful Vegan Parfait that is surprisingly made out of beets.
There are also some delightful drinks that are made out of raw fruits and juices. Ginseng Green Tea and Pomegranate Cranberry replenishers are two drinks that bring out the best of fall flavors.
From the quality of dishes to the wonderful flavors; it’s not hard to “Fall” in love with Urban Plates this Fall.
