Jump Into Spring with a New Menu at True Food Kitchen

Spring means fresh vegetables in abundance. To reflect the season, True Food Kitchen has introduced their new spring menu with dishes that celebrate the bounty of spring. Also as a nod to Mother Earth and Earth Day, if you get a to-go order during the month of April, it will come in a reusable canvas tote.

My companion and I visited the True Food Kitchen in Pasadena to give the new menu a try. With choices like Spring Asparagus Toast with roasted cipollini onion, green garbanzo, tahini, mint and hemp seed, or the Seasonal Ingredient Salad with watercress, grilled broccolini, asparagus, green garbanzo, goat cheese, raisin, sprouted almond and turmeric chia vinaigrette, there’s a lot of fresh to choose from.

I guess my companion and I were both hankering a burger, mine the turkey, his the grass-fed beef.

So often turkey burgers are bland, let’s face it, turkey is pretty tasteless. True Food’s is anything but with smashed avocado, tomato, butter lettuce, smoked gouda, jalapeno remoulade and a soft flax seed bun. The burger comes with your choice of a kale salad or sweet potato hash. It was the hash for me. This was a delicious burger full of flavor. I loved the bit of sweet heat from the jalapeno remoulade. It was delicious.

My companion’s grass-fed beef burger came with mushrooms, caramelized onion, arugula, parmesan, and mayonaise on a fax seed bun. It was meaty with a great umami taste. It too came with the salad or the hash.

We also enjoyed sitting on the patio even though the night was cool. The plentiful heaters kept us warm and toasty and the tinkling fountain helped to nullify the noise from Colorado Boulevard.
