Native Foods Healthy Vegan Taco Update! Chicago & LA

Well it took a trip to the new Native Foods in Chicago to experience it in a whole new way!  We've been lamenting the loss of the Tijuana Taco's from the menu for many months now and have struggled with getting a healthy plate of beans, rice, veggies and salsa from our local Native Foods to the point of being BANNED from ordering side items!   The kind midwesterners (new owners of the franchise) really did up our healthy taco substitution.  We thanked them a million times and told them they really are giving the Los Angeles locations a run for their money! 

Roasted Chile Taco Trio
Housemade refried beans, spiced with roasted jalapenos and layered with brown rice, mango salsa, guacamole and cilantro in three crunchy corn tacos.  Oh my gato!  7.95  GF

After banning us from ordering side items they make customers play the substitution game.  Once you get this right SAVE YOUR RECEIPT and use it to order next time.  

Order "Roasted Chili Taco Trio - Sub black beans for refried beans, sub red beans for guacamole, sub crunchy corn tacos for whole wheat tortilla"  Its always good to throw in a "nothing with oil"


Don't forget to add some hot sauce!  Also, we're in love with their bottomless watermelon fresca and on a hot Chicago day (100+) they were ON IT with the refills!  The Clark Street location has a top notch team unrivaled by any other Native Foods I've visited!

When eating out, do you tell waitstaff that you are allergic to oils? I find for me it poses a problem if I say I CHOOSE not to eat certain things, ie fat...

I have gone so far as telling waitstaff and chefs my nose will bleed if I eat oil. Its practically a poison and if I get served it I can't eat it so its best to do what ever you need to get your point across w/o being rude or seeming crazy.
