Fashion Island at Newport Beach has always been my absolute favorite mall in OC simply because it’s an outdoor mall and it has some great restaurants, and one of the many is True Food Kitchen. (well also you can kind of catch a glimpse of the beautiful Newport beach from the mall, if you stand on the right side)
True Food Kitchen offers a wide variety of healthy food with natural and locally grown ingredients that help nourish your body and satisfy your taste buds. One thing I really like about True Food Kitchen before even tasting the food is the design of the restaurant. The exterior of True Food Kitchen has a very organic and chic feel with a bright lime/yellow logo color encompassing the architecture inside and out with a minimalistic design. Everything is so clean and neat. I love for the fact that they have patio seating for outdoor dining, perfect option for those of you who enjoy the California sunshine.
Food is off the charts excellent! Very unique and fresh! The menu features a mix of Asian, Mediterranean, and New American style. There are also many vegan and gluten-free dishes to choose from. My favorite item is the Spaghetti Squash Casserole, a vegetarian entree, which is a squash version of your typical spaghetti noodles. It has a really subtle flavor and amazing texture. It’s a great option if you’re looking to save on calories and aren’t too hungry. In addition, I always order a veggie juice or honey lemonade every time I go.
It’s a 3.5/5 from me because even their items are fresh and yum, it can get a little bit noisy inside. Also, it’s a little bit pricy for the amount of food they give you because the portion is pretty small. If you’re a big eater, you might still feel hungry after your meal here. However, it’s a great place to grab a drink or when you’re craving delicate, fresh, and healthy food! I still recommend everyone to try it out!
