This is the third post in a series about our Arizona trip and Grand Canyon hike from April 2011. To read more, check out these other posts:
True Food Kitchen, a small restaurant chain in Arizona and California, promotes healthy eating and sustainability. I heard about True Food Kitchen on Peas and Thank You and was looking forward to their vegan-friendly menu, especially their chocolate mousse for dessert.
The outside patio of the Biltmore Fashion Park’s True Food Kitchen is warm and inviting. Tables are covered by bright umbrellas, and walk ways are lined with fragrant herbs.
Inside, an earthy dining room and open kitchen awaits.
It was nice for Dave to finally unplug for a bit and for us to enjoy each other’s company. That is what vacation is all about!
Feeling a bit groggy after our four hour flight, I guzzled two cups of coffee with soy milk hoping it would perk me up for afternoon drive to Sedona.
Since we missed lunch and were dining between lunch and dinner, I opted for a big meal to hold me over for the evening. I had the stir-fry with tofu. Dave had the turkey burger with sweet potato fries. We both enjoyed our meals and the ambiance of the restaurant.
As much as I wanted to splurge on the chocolate mousse that Mama Pea raved about on her blog, I was stuffed from my entrée.
With a full belly, I headed off to browse the shops
while Dave headed to Starbucks where he busted out the world’s largest spreadsheet to get some work done.
Hopefully after inspecting it closely and number crunching, he can feel prepared for his lawyer duties and can enjoy the rest of our trip stress-free.
Convertible top down, we are headed to Sedona for the next 2 nights. Up next, uptown Sedona and hiking Cathedral Rocks.
