All-vegan restaurants are awesome for a billion reasons, but the best part is that you can order anything off the menu without qualifyers or substitutions. Ladies and gents, scoundrels and scallywags, I give you:
This massive pile includes house-made taco meat, fresh salsa, house-made cheddar, house-made chipotle crema, guac, and shaved jalapeno.
Chicken Ranch sammie:
Breaded and fried chicken topped with carrots, onions, lettuce, and gobs of delicious ranch. The chicken was very Gardein-like, and I am a sucker for fried chicken analogues so I was really into it. The bun was buttered and toasted on the inside, which was awesome.
Sweet potato fries:
These were freaking great, and came with a side of chipotle crema for dipping. Damn.
This was the highlight of the meal, and easily the best reuben any of us had ever had. Holy moly, that seitan is good. Sloppy, salty, and thinly sliced on top of marble rye. Totally perfect.
Eaten but not pictured: The Soul Bowl (really good!), with rice, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale, topped with fried chicken, ranch, and bbq sauce. And an excellent carrot cake cupcake.
Native Foods is on the 29th Street Mall in Boulder, just off Canyon. Get there!
