Native Foods Cafe?

any likes / dislikes on the menu? (claims to be vegan)

it is a small chain - mainly So Cal - one in Greater Portland OR - one in Boulder CO and a couple in Chicago area.

we've been to the one in Oregon - decent enuf - seemed very salty to me - but the child ate the food so that was good.

  1. I'm an avowed carnivore and have really enjoyed almost everything I've tried there --- with the exception of desserts. There are just no workable substitutions for dairy as far as my tastes go.

    1. I like the blackened tempeh burger with caramelized onions and "native cheese". Seitan "jerk burger" is also good.

      Veggie Grill was started by one of the original owners of Native Foods; it has a different vibe, but many of the menu items are very similar, and they are expanding a bit more rapidly.
