Finding healthy “fast food” can be difficult when you’re on the go, but I recently tried LYFE Kitchen’s Sweet Chile Tacos and think I’ve found my new go-to.
After one of our marathon photoshoots, me and my client Kim decided to go to LYFE Kitchen for a quick lunch before I had to head to work. It’s been a few months since I’ve eaten there (love their Chicken + Avocado Sandwich), so I was surprised to see that the menu had been revamped.
Their food is pretty filling but not heavy, so I ordered the Sweet Chile Chicken Tacos (chayote slaw, black beans, avocado smash, cilantro, chipotle aioli, organic tortillas, salsa fresca) + a side of baked sweet potato fries.
Kim ordered the BBQ Shrimp Tacos (chayote slaw, black beans, avocado smash, cilantro, chipotle aioli, organic tortillas, salsa fresca) w/a side salad, and we also had their veggie + hummus app. We didn’t realize the hummus appetizer was that large (we couldn’t just ordered that and been good, lol).
The chicken was tender + savory w/just a hint of sweetness; the added avocado smash was just what I needed to bring it all together. I also ordered a pomegranate ginger lemonade and it was sooooo good. The added ginger gave it some spiciness-I definitely want to recreate this at home.
Everything was fresh and delicious, and we sat on the patio and enjoyed the breeze for the time that we had. We’ll definitely be back!
