Five Things You'll Love About Urban Plates + #GIVEAWAY

What mom doesn't want a delicious made from scratch meal she didn't have to prepare and she gets to eat HOT and not 20 minutes after the meal has ended and everyone has left the table? Ooooh! Me! Me! That is exactly what you will find at Urban Plates. You get high quality proteins paired with delicious fresh produce in a fast-casual dining experience that will leave you coming back again and again.

I recently had the opportunity to attend a lunch with friends hosted by Urban Plates in Aliso Viejo and I am sharing five things you'll love about this urban-chic restaurant and I'm throwing in a giveaway so you can check it out for yourself!!

{1} ORGANICS ALL THE TIME
People want to know that the food they are eating is not only good for them, but
that it was grown responsibly without harsh chemicals and pesticides. I love that
Urban Plates has a big sign that greets you as you come in to let you know exactly
what is organic all the time. 



{2} FOOD MADE FROM SCRATCH
You literally watch your food being prepared in front of you. You want the delicious Antioxidant Salad? Well, it's not even being started until you walk up to the counter and tell the chef that you want him to make you one. And you can fully customize your food choice because you stand there and watch them assemble it. 


{3} DELICIOUS SIDE OPTIONS
If you're tired of your only side options to your protein at a fast casual restaurant being french fries, fruit or kettle potato chips, then you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the amazing side options that Urban Plates has to offer. The sides are seasonal so as to be using organic ingredients that are locally sourced and fresh for you. As of right now, Urban Plates in Aliso Viejo has sixteen side options including SESAME BROCCOLINI and RAINBOW CARROTS with BEETS.


{4} A KIDS MENU THAT ROCKS
It's really not my favorite when I go into a restaurant and they have high quality food on the "grown-up" menu and then crappy out of the box mac'n'cheese for the kids I'm like - "Really, I just paid $8 for you to eat box mac'n'cheese?" Totally not my favorite. There is none of that at Urban Plates. The kids get the same fresh, organic ingredients that are prepared from scratch. BTW: Their mac'n'cheese is the bomb.


{5} DESSERTS, DESSERTS, AND MORE DESSERTS
The desserts at Urban Plates are NO JOKE! My friend says she sneaks over to Urban Plates with with her youngest all the time just to grab a Chewy Molasses Cookie. In keeping with its scratch-cooking commitment, Urban Plates has in-house pastry chefs that create more than 20 different kinds of desserts each day. They are all delicious. They even have seasonal dessert items. Right now it is taking all of my willpower not to go to Urban Plates immediately to try the NEW Fresh Apple Caramel Cake. If you win the giveaway, please have a slice for me!



{MORE THINGS YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT URBAN PLATES}
I know we already counted down THE FIVE THINGS YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT URBAN PLATES, but I just can't help it, there are more things that I have to share with you! So, let me give you a few more reasons to spend your next lunch with friends at Urban Plates.

{6} LOTS OF YUMMY DRINKS
There are so many yummy things to drink at Urban Plates. Some locations - like Aliso Viejo - have their own signature Urban Coctails. I'm non-alcoholic as far as beverages go, so I love their Urban Replenishers and Natural Sodas sweetened with organic cane sugar



{7} GRASS FED AND FREE RANGE
Not only are the veggies and produce organic, but the protein options are also high quality. You can tell their beef is grass fed and their chicken is free range because it is so flavorful!



{8} EVERYTHING IS SO PRETTY
The food and the restaurant are just so pleasing to the eye. I love the colorful plates with all the fresh veggies and the ambiance of the restaurant makes you want to hang out with friends. The Aliso Viejo location has a fabulous patio that makes dining al fresco a fabulous experience.
