Vegan Fast Food, For Better or Worse
Posted on 07 / 25 / 2015
I had been to Native Foods once before, but this was the first time to this location. The location is convenient, the dining room is pleasant, the staff are efficient, but...this visit left me with the same disappointment I felt the first time I went to a Native Foods. The problem is the menu. I've been a vegetarian in the Midwest for over twenty years, and usually when I go to a veg restaurant, I'm overwhelmed by having options! At Native Foods, I feel like I'm in a regular restaurant. Almost all the dishes are designed around flavors I associate with meat--BBQ, bacon, ranch, cheeseburger, etc. (I wouldn't normally call cheeseburger a flavor, but if you put it in a burrito...) If you crave these flavors, this may be a great place for you. But if you're wanting dishes that were developed to showcase vegetables, you may actually be better off choosing the veg option at one of the many other restaurants within a few blocks.
