I have been slacking on food prep this week. The really hard thing about this detox/meal plan is you have to ALWAYS be prepared. Well, I wasn't prepared today, so I just stopped by the breakfast restaurant and picked up two sides of fruit for breakfast. I also REALLY cheated. While I was waiting for my fruit I noticed everyone around me was enjoying AMAZING breakfasts and COFFEE. I just couldn't help myself. I ordered a decaf almond milk latte. I know, it could have been worse. But it also would have been better if I just didn't order it at all. AND to make it worse, it wasn't as good as I expected it to be. Not that the restaurant made it bad, I think my taste buds are just changing or something. Anyway, FAIL on my part. :(
Luckily, the restaurant was full but not packed, and my sis had already scored us a table. We waited in line for just a few minutes, then went up to the register to order. They said they would bring us our order within ten minutes. I think it barely took five, and we delivered these mouthwatering looking entrees:
The tacos were delicious, but I think the soup of the day (I believe it was an Ethiopian peanut soup) was the best thing we had! It had so much flavor and was creamy without even using cream. I wish I had some more right now.
Anther thing worth mentioning was the service was GREAT. Even though it is a fast casual dining experience, everyone went out of their way to be friendly. The cashiers were very nice (almost overly so) and there were people who walked around and took your empty plates and offered to-go boxes.
The last thing I want to say about Native Foods Cafe is that it happens to be a vegan restaurant. However, I wouldn't let that discourage you from going! There are many items that can be enjoyed by meat-eaters and plant-eaters alike.
It's getting late, so I am off to bed!
PS-I took a peek at the desserts while I was leaving...next time I will have to try a brownie or peanut butter parfait!
