The star at Malibu Farm is most certainly the view and the charming, white-washed beach atmosphere. The food, albeit invigoratingly fresh, is small and overpriced, only decent in comparison. The Vegan Chop salad with kale romaine, butternut squash, beets, avocado, and garbanzo beans suffers from a poor ratio of ingredients, as well as a powerful, vinegary dressing that overpowers the flavor of the squash. Any salad can have grilled chicken, salmon, or skirt steak added for an additional price ($8-$12), but the kitchen seems unable to consistently execute. My friend and I ended up ordering the same salad with grilled chicken, but half of my chicken was grossly underdone and pink, while hers was well cooked.
