  • Oh my, yes! I, too, would love to try the taquitos, and the Spring Kale Salad and Sesame Kale Macro Bowl as well!


  • Are the OC native foods gonna have this menu tomorrow?! OMG I hope so I want that salad!

  • this is a disappointment.. I think at least half of these items are not new? tanya was much more creative with the last menu change.. tough to improve on perfection!

    Looks good to me.

  • They took away a lot of their great menu items, especially the Wasabi Bean Burger which was phenomenal. I hope it returns one day. And “Mom’s Meatloaf” only stuck around for about three weeks before being replaced by that meatball sub, which I guess sold well enough to remain.

  • I am in LA Aug 19 through 26… how on Earth am I meant to have enough time to do all the eating I want? Between Native Foods and Veggie Grill, I’m not sure anyone else is going to get a look in. Well, obviously Cruzer will see me.

    All of this looks amazing. Meatballs are the food of champions.

  • Native Foods is coming to Chicago and this Summer will not be coming fast enough. These new menu items look killer!

  • OH! Since we had to go to Westwood today, we had lunch at the Westwood Native Foods and the food was out of this world! There was no way I could NOT try the sweet potato taquitos, and I’m so glad because they were melt-in-your-mouth HEAVENLY! My partner, who does not avoid gluten, ordered the Super Italian Meatball Sub and thoroughly enjoyed it! I want to try the new Kale dishes on future visits to Native Foods IF I can restrain myself from ordering those luscious taquitos again! Chef Tanya really has come up with some absolute WINNERS!

    ^ That’s great!!
    I had trouble finding parking at the Westwood NF. I need to stop by the Culver City location soon one of these days.

  • My wife is a pescatarian and we went to Native Food shortly after the Culver City opening. We split the Native Nachos and a Twister Wrap. 15 minutes after we were done, my wife got sick.

    People seem to love this place. Worth going back to?

  • native foods has me by the balls. i go there so fucking much it’s stupid.

    new menu items look awesome!

  • YES! Meatball sub becomes “official”!!!!

    …but – which old menu items will get the boot?

  • why am i traveling?!? oh why?!?

  • Sure wish Chef Tanya would open a Native Foods restaurant in Hollywood!

  • Or the valley. NF4eva!

  • Oh, it changed this past Sunday! Silly me….so – I went today, and was sad to see that the Broccoli Curry Crunch salad got the boot. 🙁 The Louisiana Wrap is also gone – but was turned into the new salad and wings. I tried the salad – it was great!

  • Meatball subs are awesome and I don’t eat them nearly often enough.

  • Remembering those SCRUMPTIOUS sweet potato taquitos I enjoyed Sunday, I just have to yell out, “Hooray for GOOD restaurant chains like Native Foods and Veggie Grill!”

  • both the taquitos and the kale bowl are awesome!!!

    i had the taquitos to go and they were still crispy 20 mins later.

    they needed some hot sauce, tho. i added plenty 🙂

  • I had the taquitos this weekend. Was a little scared they were going to be too sweet or overwhelmingly coconutty but they were well balanced. That chipotle sauce was really good.

  • FYI, those Sweet Potato Taquitos are appetizers and you can get them for half off if you go to Native Foods on Fridays between 3pm and 6pm for their “Happy Hour”.
