Recently True Food Kitchen opened in Blvd Place at San Felipe and Post Oak Blvd. (this is shaping up to be a powerful intersection). This concept restaurant offers globally inspired cuisine including starters, salads, sandwiches, entrees and fresh-squeezed juices, based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. The menu features lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, along with dishes for those that are following a Paleo or Mediterranean diet. They also have a full-bar that offers cocktails with fresh ingredients, local craft beers, and sustainable wines.
I visited them the weekend before they opened during a friends and family brunch service. One of the things that stood out to me was that the food is good for you, and it taste sinfully delicious at the same time. Let’s just be honest…many times this is not the case! As I enjoyed the grilled steelhead salmon with argula and street tacos, I never felt that I was missing anything or that I was eating “the healthy version”. It was just straight up good food! In addition to trying several menu items, I also tried one of the fresh-squeezed juices which are also made in-house, and it was equally impressive.
True Food Kitchen is definitely a restaurant that Houston has been missing for quite a while, with their approach to food and their ability to offer a little something for everyone. We will check back in with them in a few months to see if they are still bringing the yum!
