TRUE FOOD KITCHEN – Los Angeles
395 Santa Monica Place, Suite 172 Santa Monica, CA 90401
True food is a healthy restaurant located in Santa Monica that has a menu based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet & Food Pyramid. This may not seem appealing or sexy to some but I have to say I was quite impressed.
I am typically an eggs person at brunch but after having seen pictures of these quinoa Johnny cakes, and given my current obsession with quinoa, I knew there was no other option on the menu that morning. The two dinner plate- sized cakes were hot and fluffy topped with pure maple syrup and greek yogurt and steamed with the scent of melting bananas and cinnamon. These are healthy? Really? I should eat like this more often. The hearty pancakes were perfectly balanced by my Red Moon cocktail- a deliciously refreshing elixir of grapefruit, yuzu, agave and soda. What a great start to any morning.
