• new burger at native foods this weekend!

    August 30th, 2011quarrygirlLA restaurants, native foods

    2 native foods blog posts in one day?! you bet. not only is their regular menu stellar, but the restaurant never misses a chance to offer new and inventive specials. the newest one will be available this labor day weekend, friday through monday. let me introduce you to the “chimichurri burger”.

    labor day chimichurri burger: homemade thinly sliced seitan, topped with warm grilled zucchini slices, sweet roasted peppers, caramelized onions and freshly blended chimichurri sauce. served with garlic fries and a veggie credit skewer with extra chimi sauce. $9.95

    good god, the thinly sliced seitan is amazing. if this is even half as good as their epic oklahoma bacon burger, you’re in for a treat.

    to me, holidays mean two things: time off work, and special meals. most labor day weekends only offer the former—so huge thanks to native foods for turning this boring holiday into an eating event. i’ll celebrate whatever you tell me to, as long as i can eat a giant vegan chimichurri burger with garlic fries for under 10 bucks.

    check out the native foods website for more locations in LA and chicago.

  • Looks pretty great, though I would get it without the zucchini. I don’t REALLY have anything against it, but it’s so often used as the “vegetarian option”, the wife and I have practically sworn it off. It’s the principle of the matter.

  • Hurray, another chance to whine! Please, Native Foods, get your Palm Desert restaurant open as soon as possible. I can’t stand it! A chimichurri burger! I need it, but you’re too far away!

  • i’d get it w/o the peppers!

  • Looks FANTASTIC!!! Oh how i LOVE native foods!!! 😀

    ^ I know you’re an atheist, but my religion (Hinduism) happens to buy into the whole reincarnation racket…so in our crazy worldview, all this stuff sometimes ties back…hence QG, I wonder if you were attacked by gigantic angry bell-peppers at the end of your last life, which has caused the major aversion to them you harbor in this life…

    I’m way off-topic and possibly sounding like I need mental help but I’ll post this weirdo comment anyway hehe:p

    Shucks, incorrect grammar + crazy theories, and it’s only 9pm on a Tuesday night…at any rate this vegan burger looks scrumptious, thanks for the pic and the post about it:D

  • woohoo! FYF fest and a new burger at Native Foods this weekend is going to fucking rock!

  • I love zuchinni, but have been burnt out on bell peppers as a vegetarian option.

    I hope my love for bell peppers returns, used to love them.

  • Veggie crudite skewer perhaps?

  • I’ve never been given a plate of bell peppers as a vegetarian option, but I’ve sure as hell had my fair share of steamed squash (and nothing else) put in front of me.

  • She WAS a Bell Pepper in a past life….she doesn’t want to be a cannibal.

  • Ahhh, these weekend specials kill me….Native is my WEEKDAY spot! Wah. 😉
