Vegan MoFo: Native Foods

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be invited to a pre-opening at Native Foods new Culver City location.  The restaurant officially opens on November 15th but people were invited to join them as they fine tuned their training.  Full disclosure here is the meal was complimentary.

The new location looks fantastic.  It feels fun, warm and cozy.  The staff was nice, patient, and helpful.

my friend running from the camera but you can see some of the dining area

Yippee closer to my house  :)

Mmmm Thanksgiving at Native Foods

I went with a few friends and one of them had never been there.  We had a wonderful time and some delicious food.

My friend was happy the lettuce was on the bottom because she said "I ate all the good stuff off the top".

Ensalada Azteca
Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger

Scorpion Burger
Pumpkin Cheesecake.... still drooling

It was a great night with fantastic food and wonderful friends.  My friend who had never been there said she would go back.  Her comment was "The food taste so fresh I could see why people would like it".  I can't wait until Native Foods opens in Culver City.  I know I'll be going back.

    I'm trying to add your blog to my google reader but it seems there is no RSS feed?

  4. I like your blog! I love the Mushroom Bourginon and the roasted cauliflower recipes. Tonight I made brocolli soup. This is a great time of year to make soup! Keep up with your great articles on your blog.

  5. Sorry, can I ask you what is a scorpion burger?

  6. @Alessandra No problem at all. A Scorpion burger is "Chef Tanya's original burger. Homemade tempeh blackened with chipotle sauce, lettuce, carrots, avacado and onions. On mine I got the onions carmelized mmm. If you like a little kick this is perfect.

  7. @yosoyblog Here is the RSS feed that comes up for me.

    Hope that helps.

  8. How fun to be able to enjoy Native Foods for free! Everything looks very appetizing. I've been to the Westwood location a couple of times.
