Fresh Kitchen…fast food reimagined.
Veterans day is the one day a year that vets like myself can eat almost anywhere. Today I chose Fresh Kitchen and here’s why. First off, the FK concept is dope…you get to choose your base, vegetables and protein. Second, everything is prepared for you in assembly line fashion so it’s super quick. Lastly it’s fresh and freaking delicious. Does one really need any other reasons besides the last?
On any given day you can create a personalized bowl. You have the option to choose a four, six or eight bowl. Each bowl varies in the number of proteins and veggies you can choose.
To start making your bowl you choose from either quinoa, rice, mashed sweet potatoes, or sweet potato noodles etc. as your base ( I chose mashed sweet potatoes and quinoa YUM). Next you can choose your vegetables and today the options were broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, and brussel sprouts. I went for the greener route and chose the brussel sprouts, although it was hard to resist those mushrooms. The protein choices were buffalo chicken, steak, tofu, tuna poke, almond crusted chicken strips and bbq chicken. It was a toss up between the almond crusted chicken strips and the bbq chicken, ultimately I thought the bbq chicken would pair best with the sweet potatoes. Last on the line are their sauces, there are too many to mention here (like 8) besides I forgot due to brain overload. I will tell you that the holy kale won my heart over and my husband got the jalapeño cucumber.
Fresh Kitchen also offers freshly pressed juices for sale. I love this option because it’s nice to have a beverage that isn’t soda or water. Plus they have perfected blends whereas I’m still going with my kale and pear recipe. They are already pre-packaged and ready for you to grab on your way through the line. Fresh Kitchen is very easily one of my husbands favorite spots to eat in Tampa and I’m sure once you give them a try it will be yours too. But don’t wait for a special holiday to visit, you’ll be just as happy on a regular Tuesday.
