Side Effects and Dinner at True Food Kitchen
|Lots of winter veggies and a little bit chicken from True Food Kitchen.|
Excuse us if we're preaching, but we've always believed the best medicine for any ailment is a healthy diet and regular exercise. After a movie full of anti-depressant name-dropping, we decided to stop by Fox Restaurant's True Food Kitchen at the Biltmore, a place that's no stranger to V and GF classifications on the menu.
We were happy to wait for a table after seeing how many folks opted for a healthy dinner, and when we were seated we went straight for one of their juices. We had to have Andy's Elixir because sparkling drink features soda water, agave and the culinary world's new fave berry--sea buckthorn. Bon Appetit recently compared the little orange-isg fruit to the flavor of Sour Patch Kids, and while that's a bit of a stretch, it definitely is tart and sweet in its own completely natural way.
After ordering our meal, we had completely slurped down our first juice, so we ordered a kale-aid, which has oodles of healthy digestive fruits and veggies. Next we got a miso soup, which had a delicately salty and flavorful miso broth with shitake mushrooms, small chunks of tofu and bites of scallion to add some color and freshen up the flavor. Our main course, the new to the menu winter ingredient salad with added grilled chicken, was a warm salad with brussel sprouts, cauliflower, mulberries and more all tossed in a spicy, sinus-relieving horseradish dressing. We forgave the dryness of our grilled chicken on the salad because the rest of the meal was just what the doctor ordered.
