Respond to Review of Native Foods - Santa Monica
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: This new location has the same menu as the others, but there is much more outdoor seating which is lovely with all the flowers and birds around. The only reason to sit inside is if you ordered any beer or wine (not allowed outside). During two separate visits, we ordered the new tempeh cakes and caesar salad along with the drunken tofu banh mi special to try something new. The bahn mi was excellent. We also ordered the meatball sub and nachos which we've had before....yummy! The strawberry shortcake parfait dessert is wonderful as it's creamy and not too sweet. Very European. Dirk's non-vegan mother loved it too. Also, the ladies restroom had painted elephants with a plaque about the PAWS sanctuary which I was happy to see. The service was very attentive as well. Overall, it's great that Native Foods is expanding so that more people can try their yummy vegan food. I hope I get a location this nice near me soon!
