True Foods Kitchen in Fashion Valley Mall has made significant upgrades to its menu, which remains driven by the principles of Dr. Weil’s popular anti-inflammatory diet. New and re-invented dishes include a series of meat, seafood and vegetarian bowls, plus summer squash pizza, grilled avocados, a roasted vegetable “summer ingredient” salad with Manchego cheese, and an organic egg sandwich with smoked turkey that is available on the brunch menu.
In addition, the restaurant’s turkey lasagna now uses chicken Bolognese instead, and the bison burgers have been replaced by grass-fed patties. 7007 Friars Road, Ste. 394, 619-810-2929, truefoodkitchen.com.
Famous for its vegan cinnamon rolls, Cinnaholic debuts in San Diego on Aug. 12 in Westfield Mission Valley mall via a kiosk serving dairy and egg-free rolls crowned with flavored icings and various toppings of choice. The company, which launched several years ago in Berkeley, has since branched into Las Vegas, Atlanta and Southlake, Texas. Plans are in the works for two other local outlets in the Gaslamp Quarter and Pacific Beach. 1640 Camino Del Rio North, cinnaholic.com.
