In Kansas City, a city known far and wide for its barbecue, it can be tough to find restaurants that offer delicious vegan options. True Food Kitchen is one of the few. They serve vibrant dishes made from seasonal, fresh ingredients, and many of those dishes are either vegan or vegetarian.
About True Food Kitchen
True Food Kitchen is located on Pennsylvania Avenue in Country Club Plaza, which is only a few minutes from Fountain View on the Plaza Apartments. It’s the perfect spot to stop in for dinner on a busy weeknight when you don’t want a long drive home. Inside, green-backed chairs stand out against the expansive wooden floors and tables in the dining room. A large bar sits off to the left and is a great place to linger if you’re just in for a few drinks and appetizers.
True Food Kitchen partners with independent growers to ensure all of their foods are sourced responsibly. For example, they get their kale from San Miguel Farms, and it is grown 100% organically.
Top Menu Options
True Food Kitchen serves brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert, so their menu is expansive. Dishes are conveniently marked to denote whether they are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, making it easy to find something that suits your dietary preferences. For brunch, they offer a selection of juices and smoothies, along with a vegan chorizo bowl that’s a crowd favorite. The banana pancakes, which are vegetarian and gluten-free, are also delicious.
If you visit for lunch or dinner, you must try the Korean noodle bowl. It’s a vegan and gluten-free option made with sweet potato noodles, pickled shiitakes, spinach, and heirloom veggies. The spaghetti squash casserole, made with caramelized onions and crushed tomatoes, is another favorite.Back to all posts
