You know what’s amazing? Well, a lot of things are, that was a poor question.
But anyways, eating delicious food without the guilt. Yup, that’s spectacular.
Tonight Austin and I had an amazing date night previewing True Food Kitchen at Legacy West in Plano. The traffic getting there was a little rough, but Waze got us there just in time for our reservation. We were able to find parking easily- but totally missed that there was valet. We walked in the wrong door (shocker, we parked in the back by accident), but right away were greeted by a friendly face showing us the way to the hostess.
The hostesses were welcoming and accommodating- we were seated right away. Our server greeted us with a smile and told us all about the specials. It was a preview night, so there was training involved, but we were never less than impressed by Rashied and the rest of the True Food Kitchen team.
Starting off with drinks- I went with the Skinny Citrus Margarita and Austin had the Peacemaker- YUM. My drink was refreshing and light, no sugar and syrupy taste of a normal margarita. The Peacemaker was sour yet sweet, just like the work week ending.
So many apps looked appealing- but I went with a game time decision to order Hummus. HELLLLLLO GOODNESS. You know something’s grand when the only “complaint” is how the pita bread is plated… which is the lamest negative thing I have probably ever said.
Main courses were Steak Tacos and Red Chile Noodle Bowl with Shrimp. Almost got the bass, but Austin knows that steak is the way to my heart… Tacos weren’t bad, but they didn’t quite live up to the bowl. The bowl was full of spice and flavor- and the ratio of shrimp/noodle/veggies was perfect. Austin and I had to force ourselves to stop eating to save room for desserts.
No one’s shocked to hear we got Flourless Chocolate Cake (with a scoop of ice cream, cause duh). Austin said it’s like a perfect bite size brownie- addicting and sweet, but somehow healthy. I was a little preoccupied with the ice-cream and chatting with my friend Sarah from DallasLoveList who popped by the table.
Price points were extremely reasonable considering we had drinks + a full meal. Service made the night over the top. True Food Kitchen officially opens up Tuesday May 23- and I highly recommend you give it a go. I know we’ll be back to try a few more things on the menu!
