“Native Foods is an organic/vegan/vegetarian restaurant designed to meet the needs of today’s discriminating, health-conscious diners looking for great-tasting food—for both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.”
Enticing mission statement isn’t it? I love Native Foods, and have even posted recipes from the cook book that comes from the creator of Native Foods. Its a great restaurant with consciously made cuisine that taste incredibly good. I have never ever ordered anything here that I didn’t love.
Jon and I drove off the mountain yesterday to run some errands and decided to try the Native Foods in Palm Springs. We had only previously been to the one in Orange County. They now have 7 locations in Southern California. We’re lucky to have 2 of them close to us!
If you’re a vegan this is the place for you. I will say that being gluten free requires a careful read of the menu as most of their ‘meat’ is made with Seitan which is a gluten bomb! But there are certainly enough dishes with no ‘meat’ at all, and tempeh and tofu are also used in many of the main dishes, like the one pictured above which is their Hollywood Bowl.
Delicious Native Fries with a vegan ranch dressing on the side.
