Restaurant Review: Native Foods
The original Native Foods restaurant in Westwood has been a go-to spot for me for years. I’ve done three plays at the Geffen in Westwood, and every time, I love to get the other cast members food from Native Foods. Their menu is great for people who aren’t veg – just really good vegan comfort food.
Anywho, I’ve been to the Westwood and Palm Springs locations quite a bit, but recently, I visited the Culver City location for the first time. And, I have to say, it’s the best one of all! I had the Rockin’ Moroccan Bowl with tahini sauce instead of the Moroccan sauce, and it was soooo good. It came with two skewers of “native chicken” on top of quinoa…so delicious.
I took a peanut butter parfait to go, because my husband loves it. It has cane juice, so not superhero, but so yum! I once did a talk at UCLA, where Tanya who owns Native Foods, provided the catering. The Thanksgiving feast she made was delicious, and I remember thinking, wow, this is even better than the food at her Westwood location.
Now I know, the Culver City location is the one! It’s bigger than the Westwood restaurant, and when I went, it was packed. I had to wait for a SOLID five minutes to order, which is great news. It seemed it was filled with regular meat eaters who just love the delicious veg food there.
If you’re a flirt, you must try the Culver City location of Native Foods!
