Obviously I’m about to tell you all about Native Foods Cafe.
But first let me tell you about my friend Izzy.
You know how sometimes you meet people and you just click? Like being around them is SO easy. Yeah. That’s Izzy. She’s just a ray of sunshine who gets my craving for creativity and shares my obsession with Stevie Nicks. When you meet someone who will text you to turn on the radio just to catch Gypsy you know you’ve got a good one.
We spent a few hours exploring the hidden gems of Wicker Park. Popping in and out of the coolest shops. Almost getting hit by buses just, doin’ it for the gram. lol
Plus she jumped at the idea of going to my favorite vegan restaurant. This made me happy for sure.
WHICH REMINDS ME. So, on to the actual point of the post.
I LOVE finding spots around my city that are vegan.
It’s literally so exciting for me… lol
When I first became a vegan (three years ago) I was super obsessed with finding places to eat. On my 20th birthday I went to a place called Native Foods Cafe and my life changed.
This is a restaurant that serves strictly plant based food. But they know how to keep it interesting. They have a BOMB Kale Macro Bowl, as well as having their own version of a Poke Bowl using marinated watermelon.
They also have some BOMB Sweet Potato Fries and Spicy Cauliflower Bites.
My favorite dishes include:
- Bangkok Curry Bowl
- Moroccan Bowl
- Baja Tacos
- Poke Bowl
- Native Scorpion Burger
Do those not sound like the most incredible dishes?? You guys, if you haven’t tried Native Foods yet you’re seriously doing yourself a disservice. Lucky for you they have locations all over the country, not just Chicago.
I’m telling you people, I literally drive 45 minutes just to eat here.
THAT’S how good it is.
I’ve even brought non-vegan friends here and they always say they’re surprised by how good it is.
Do me, yourself, your taste buds, and the cute little animals a favor and try out Native Foods Cafe. I promise you from the bottom of my heart that you will not be sorry. You can trust me, I’m not being paid to say this. (Not that you wouldn’t be able to trust me if I was)
On another note, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m going to see Stevie Nicks perform next month. And I’m SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED. Like words cannot describe. And Izzy will be joining me. Which I’m super excited about because that means all the creativity will be flowing that night (and probably tears from being in the presence of the Gypsy herself).
So you can definitely expect to see some great pictures from the concert!
Let me know if you make it out to Native Foods!!! Tag me in pics of that gorgeous food. It’s seriously too pretty not to photograph.
love you gypsies,
