From the multicolored walls to the rainbow-hued food, South Miami's Temple Kitchen is a colorful feast for the senses. And their menu, a vibrant, eclectic assortment of plant-strong creations, is everything a health-conscious eater could ask for.
The Curry Favor hot pot ($11), specifically, is a delightfully comforting, creamy alternative to your standard Subway or Jimmy John's midday meal. With eggplant, edamame, and coconut milk, it's fresh and filling.
In full, the hot pot pairs homemade green curry with red chili, fresh mushrooms, eggplant, crunchy edamame, and creamy coconut milk. The mixture is served atop organic wild rice with a stunning, edible purple orchid.

With a hint of spice and a rich, flavorful finish, the hot pot is comfort food reimagined -- a winter warmer-upper (even if it's 80 degrees outside) with none of the artery-clogging nonsense.
To drink, Temple serves smoothies, juices, and infused water. The pretty pink-tinged rosewater blend ($4) is impossible to resist. They also have make-your-own salads, energy pots, parfaits, elixirs and more.
