Native Foods – Westwood

Native Foods in the Westwood section of Los Angeles is a great place for a vegan to go to be bad, really really bad.

Sure, they have burritos, sandwiches, pizzas, and vegan burgers, but what makes this place noteworthy are the really evil things on the menu:

Chili cheese fries, "chicken" wings, Philly Peppersteak Sandwich, and topped off with a Boogie Bar, you’ll have to go on a diet after you walk out the door. Native Foods proves it’s perfectly possible to have fat vegans.

Westwood Village, 1110 1/2 Gayley Ave, Los Angeles CA
