    True Food is my favorite restaurant here. They use so many ingredients that aren’t even available at any places in the Valley other than health food stores. AND it’s sooooo good!

    If you are ever in Tempe, you have to try out The Center. Doesn’t fit the usual Tempe style, very sleek place with a yoga studio upstairs. They have organic beer and will give you comlimentary smoothie shots

    I love TF, but I have yet to try the other two… They are now in the queue, though. Thank you for the awesome review!
