True Food Kitchen

This post is part of our At Home In Metro Phoenix series. Each month, we explore local businesses, attractions, events and people that call our wonderful community home.

We hope you like to eat as much as we do. Food seems to be a theme around these parts. Is it just us, or does the local food scene here in the Valley just keep getting better and better?

This month we’re giving a hat tip to one of our favorite restaurants of all — True Food Kitchen. The concept, created by Fox Restaurant Concepts, features a menu based on the anti-inflammatory diet, guided by some of the wisdom of Dr. Andrew Weil. What on earth does that even mean? Well, science is increasingly pointing to inflammation as a factor in many serious diseases. The anti-inflammatory diet, therefore, focuses on consumption of foods that help counteract chronic inflammation. That translates to lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains and fish with minimal amounts of other animal products and processed foods.

True Food’s wholesome menu shifts with the seasons, features responsibly-sourced ingredients and includes dishes that meet the needs of all types of eaters and specialty diets. Some of our top picks include the autumn ingredient salad and turkey burger. The herb hummus and kale salad are ridiculously good too. And, if those don’t strike your fancy, we hear the grass-fed bison burger, and moroccan chicken are all big hits. True Food also boasts a list of intriguing refreshments — fresh juices and elixirs, organic spirits, sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines, and local beers.

You may be celebrating — feeling like this restaurant is totally up your alley. Or, you may be running for the hills — guessing this health-conscious approach cannot make for a tasty menu. Whichever camp you find yourself in, we encourage you to give True Food a shot, whether it be at the Scottsdale or Phoenix location. The concept is now gaining traction in other cities across the country like Santa Monica, Atlanta, Denver and Dallas. We tend to think it’s pretty awesome that Phoenix is its original birthplace!
