Review for Fresh Kitchen Tampa by Matthew

Very tasty options abound at Fresh Kitchen. Mix and match proteins, veggies and bases and find your perfect dish. My recommendation: Coconut ginger rice/sweet potato noodles, roasted mushrooms and parmesan broccoli, with bbq chicken and herb grilled steak.
