Aren't we all forgetting when Transporter Operator Kyle dishes out some chicken soup to that air force guard in "Tomorrow Is Yesterday"? That was obviously a replicator Kyle was using. Same thing happened repeatedly throughout TOS, and not just the mess hall. Back then, these small units were called "food processors", but they used a crude form of replication technology.

We're not forgetting anything. You're forgetting what was said one post upthread:

the food-delivery system described in The Making of Star Trek, in which the food was mechanically prepared from real, perfectly preserved ingredients and delivered to the food slots by a sort of turbo-dumbwaiter system inside the walls.

Not a replicator, just a delivery slot.
