Native Foods

Chicago, Illinois


rating star

A great addition to the Chicago vegan restaurant scene. The food is pretty good, but I don't care for the cafeteria-style service. I rather would like a normal sit-down service. Desserts are lovely!

The desserts are awe-inspiring. Especially the cheesecake.

I do not consider this a fast food restaurant, even though you pay up at the counter and get your food very fast. All of the food is high-quality and quite wholesome.

Beware though, if you're like me and love faux-meaty-cheesy-greasy food, I would not recommend ordering that kind of stuff here. A lot of their faux meats and cheeses are not what you'd expect. E.g., their wings were bland tempeh, and the cheese on their nachos was essentially just bland hummus.

I was here for dinner opening day and there was a steady line of people the entire time. The staff handled it like pros. Our food was prepared to perfection in a timely manner. There didn't seem to be any kinks that they had to work out. Very impressive.

I ordered the Ensalada Azteca Salad. My partner had the Greek Gyro bowl. Highly recommend them both. Also fantastic was the lavender lemonade.

All vegan, organic, recycled napkins, outdoor seating, water bowls out front for dogs... I love this place. Can't wait to come back again and again.

If you're familiar with the neighborhood, Native Foods is just down the street from Bongo Room. Damen Blue Line stop.
