Native Foods Café Launches Its "Eat Sunshine" Summer Menu Today

Korean BBQ Sub

From our friends at Native Foods Café...

Native Foods Café launches its summer menu celebrating the freshest ingredients of the season today at each of its 26 locations nationwide. This new menu will run through September, when the fall menu takes its place, and is offered alongside the daily menu of 100% plant-based dishes.

At the peak of California Avocado season, the summer menu will feature not one, but two avocado dishes: the Avocado Crunch Wrap (a Native Foodie favorite, back by popular demand) and a refreshing Grilled Avocado Plate.

Blueberries are ripe for the pickin’ and this summer's crop is looking fantastic. Guests can enjoy this sweet little fruit packed with amazing health benefits in Native Foods Cafe's Summer Berry Salad, Blueberry Crumble, and refreshing Lavender Blueberry Lemonade.

Finally, summer isn’t complete without a BBQ. Guests looking for their fill of summer grill can dig into the savory Korean BBQ Sub, featuring Korean inspired marinated seitan and a cool pineapple slaw.

Full Summer Seasonal Menu:

• Avocado Crunch Wrap ($10.59) with coconut-battered crispy avocados, mango slaw and jalapeño-cilantro dressing, wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla and served with choice of side.

• Korean BBQ Sub ($10.59) with Korean inspired marinated seitan, pineapple slaw and crispy mushrooms on a baguette and served with choice of side.

Grilled Avocado Plate ($6.99) freshly grilled with greens, tofu bacon, radishes and a zesty lemon vinaigrette.
