Back in oh JULY we went to Native Foods after attending the Crossfit Games 2013, and because I’m a slacker I’ve not gotten around to posting a review yet… so here it is, 5 months AFTER the event. Ah well! Better late that never right? This was our first time at this location in a LONG time and they’ve completely remodelled it inside. MUCH MUCH MUCH better now. Love it.
As we were perusing the menu I wanted to try and stay Gluten Free so as Bob was getting a bear I opted for a gluten free beer, which I beleive was my first!
I was good, but not as good as regular beer, definitely something I could get used to if I had to. So far the wheat we use in the beer doesn’t seem to be causing me any bloating issues. But I’m not drinking heavily so that might be a reason why?
We started with a secret menu item: CHILI CHEESE FRIES. Yes these suckers are VEGAN!
We share these and they are a cheat meal for sure, but oh so delicious! I was glad I asked if they still did them! These are a treat indeed. Along with this I got one of the salad bowls the Indo Noodle Salad: Cucumbers, red peppers, onions, carrots, baby greens and rice noodles tossed in a sweet peanut-chile dressing and topped with ginger-glazed Native Tempeh, peanuts and cilantro. 9.95 GF
Loved the presentation, reminded me of Veggie Grill!
This was the start of my love affair with peanut sauce dressings. Bob had a burger, the Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger: Our thinly sliced Native Original Seitan, melted cheddar, caramelized onions, and crispy Native Bacon on a bun slathered with BBQ sauce and ranch dressing, romaine, carrots, onions, and tomato. Topped with crunchy battered dill pickle chips. 9.95
Looks good right? Bob and I were hungry so we dug in!
As time goes on both our tastes change dramatically. I’m more into the bowls and veggies, and Bob is growing to like more and more vegetables! Who would have thought when we met over 20 years ago the only vegetables he liked were potatoes and peas! If you are going to Native Foods I can definitely recommend the dishes above, and the beers!
