Eating clean isn’t a fad but rather a lifestyle for Kriti Sehgal
, owner of the fast-casual spot Pure Fare
first opened her restaurant in 2011 in Rittenhouse Square and later expanded to add a truck in University City. Her mission is to provide customers with nutrient-dense foods that are made lovingly from scratch. An added bonus is that everything is made without white sugar or white flour so its gluten free. They’ve got everything you’re looking for from juices, soups, snacks, sandwiches, and more. The market and cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Kriti started her restaurants with inspiration from her passion for food and belief that it tells the story of your life. If you are what you eat, than why not be something that is made with quality and you can stand behind. There is no need to feel guilty about what you eat. Plus eating clean gives you more energy! Pure Fare’s menu was first designed with the help of a nutritionist to build a balanced menu full of flavor and variety. Omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike can all find something to eat here.
Pure Fare’s new breakfast menu is serving up some new dishes from 7-11 am like Sweet Potato Breakfast Soup, Curry Chickpea Hand Pie, Broccoli Cheddar Sandwich, Avocado Toast, Wilted Breakfast Salad, Banana Chocolate Chip Frittata, and Tortilla Espanola. If you’re curious, the breakfast soup is a thick, sweet potato creation topped with toasted coconut flakes and even thick enough to support the addition of something like a poached egg for added protein. It’s filling, thanks to sweet potato’s hefty dose of fiber, but doesn’t leave you feeling heavy like a greasy breakfast sandwich.
They’ve got a variety of seasonal juices and smoothies made to order or pre-packaged to go. We loved the Leafy Green and Pineapple Beet Lime juices served in 12 oz. cups. If you’re looking for something unique try the Coconut Matcha, Avocado Key Lime, or Coffee Peanut Butter smoothies.
For lunch or dinner, enjoy the popular Turkey Honey Mustard Sandwich , Tandori Chicken Sandwich and Goat, Brie & Fig Sandwich. All sandwiches are served on their signature quinoa flour bread. There is also the option of having your sandwich heated on the panini press. Try a rotating daily soup or the favorite Green Goodness made with cauliflower, kale, spinach, onion, garlic, and vegetable stock.
When it comes to salads, Pure Fare has plenty of options like the Chili Chicken Salad with romaine, tomatoes, avocado, cucumbers, onion, garlic, cilantro, chili paste, and Citrus Lime Dressing. The Zucchini ‘Noodle’ Salad is an ultra-low calorie and low carb option made with zucchini, tomatoes, bell peppers, edamame, chives, lemons, miso paste, fresh chives, and Lemon Miso Dressing.
Pure Fare is also serving up their own sushi. Try the Spicy Carrot Roll made with carrot, spinach, daikon, avocado, scallion, and tahini or the Salmon Broccolini Roll with baked wild salmon, broccolini, cucumber, and nori.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with their signature Sweet Potato Brownie, or maybe try a Zuchinni Bread Muffin, Homemade Peanut Butter Cups, or an Avocado Cookie. Kriti loves snacking and wanted to offer items that customers ca enjoy between meals or when they’ve got a craving for a sweet treat. Kale Brittle was one of our favorite snacks made with kale leaves, walnuts, almonds, raisins, sesame seeds, coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, and salt.
