Native Foods

Let me apologize in advance.  The pictures for today's post aren't the prettiest, but they're from my phone. 
Today's food comes from Native Foods, which we visited in Chicago this past spring.  It was amazing, super fresh and super flavorful.  The best thing?  It's 100% vegan.  Nothing's better than going to a restaurant knowing you can order ANYTHING from the menu and not have to ask 100 questions about the ingredients.  Go ahead, order the nachos loaded with cheese and sour cream.  Ranch with your burger?  Yes, please.  Carrot cupcake with cream cheese frosting?  Why not!  The only bummer of this visit was that they were out of their homemade tempeh.

We're going back for a second visit this weekend, and I can't wait!  I have a tough decision to make... pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake.  Or both?  I'm sure I won't be disappointed!  Happy MoFoing :)


  1. Definitely both pie and cheesecake! This food all sounds great, I keep hearing about so many places I didn't get time to check out when I visited Chicago a couple of years ago, it sounds like I definitely need to go back one day.

  2. I went with the cheesecake! The crust was amazing... granola, walnuts, other chopped goodness, plus a side of pecan caramel sauce!
