Enjoying Lunch As It Should Be in Westwood, California
At the Native Foods Café near UCLA, "vegetarian" is synonymous with "tasty." This eatery hosts familiar lunch fare with a meatless twist. The Philadelphia cheese steak has ideal texture and full flavor on warm bread, all without the guilt of eating Daisy. Even though you'll swear you can’t eat another bite, one glance in their dessert fridge will convince you otherwise. Their rose and cardamom cupcakes are towers of frosting, dotted with edible rose petals, on fluffy cushions of yellow birthday cake. The floral tidal wave of rose water and the aromatic Indian spices will make you salivate as the creamy frosting dissolves on your tongue. Go ahead and get it all over your face and fingers—it’s gustatory heaven.
