True Food Kitchen: San Felipe/Post Oak Corridor – A Food Mecca

 

9e236-img_7649

Super clean windows with invitingly modern tables bedecked with cacti grace the wide open dining space. Showcasing one of Houston’s rare al fresco dining opportunities, True Foods Kitchen opens out from the corner shopping center west of the new Whole Foods Market on San Felipe near Post Oak. Glad we came during the mid-afternoon, as it assured us a quick seat and that we did not compete for parking with business professionals and shoppers.

We drove down the miles of offerings of unique healthful “mocktails” like Matcha Horchata, Pomegranate Lemonade, and Kale-Ade and opened with this simple refresher:

The find of the day was the Carmelized Onion Tart. With the unique mingling of smoked garlic, fig and Gorgonzola, it was cut into four pieces and though we always split, there just weren’t enough!

Our entrees were healthy and delicious, served piping hot and with a smile.

We wrapped up all of our clean eating with the Spiced Apple and Goji Berry Crisp served with a very healthy scoop of ice cream,  Espresso and Cappuccino.

We strolled (rolled) on to spend some time in patio lounge chairs as we watched the sunset over the many new Galleria buildings – a lovely ending to a St. Patrick’s Day celebration of “eating of the greens”!
