After that fine Dot Com Lunch at the Veggiegrill, we decided to press our luck by doing another Eating with John Chow at another veggie restaurant.
Based in Chicago but founded in Palm Springs, California, Native Foods Café is a restaurant chain with a plant-based, made-from-scratch menu. Earlier this year, the company received a $15 million investment by two private-equity firms, and have gone on an expansion drive to bring the plant-based diet concept coast to coast. There are currently 16 locations across the United State, and more are planned. We dined at the Tustin, California location.
The Native Food menu is beloved by vegans and non-vegans alike. They offer seasonally updated one-of-a-kind dishes, delicious desserts and homemade beverages inspired by a very innovative culinary team. The food is made fresh daily. The menu is 100% plant-based. This does not mean meat lovers should stay away. On the contrary, native carnivores should definitely hit the cafe if they’re feeling restless.
I went with twister wrap (pictured above) and the native soup of the day. The wrap contains fresh baby greens, avocado and cucumber salsa, creamy chipotle sauce and your choice of crispy, blackened or grilled Native Chicken in a whole wheat wrap. I went with the blackened chicken, which didn’t look very blacken. The “chicken” is made from tempeh, a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Native Foods makes their tempeh in-house.

I Didn’t Spend $8,000 for Lunch – I Made It
The title of this blog post may lead you to believe that lunch at Native Foods cost $8,000. At $9.95, you would have to buy a lot of twister wraps to spend that much! The $8,000 came in when I got a buzz on my Google phone with a Facebook update. Matt Lloyd, the founder of MOBE, posted the following on my wall.
This is what living the Dot Com Lifestyle is all about. Here I was enjoying a Dot Com Lunch with friends, and I make $8,000 while eating. Is this the ultimate lifestyle, or what? Want to know how I do it? Your first first step is to download my ebook, the Ultimate Online Profit Model. This details the business systems I use to make six-figure monthly income and live the Dot Com Lifestyle.
Your next step is to apply for MTTB. This is MOBE’s 21 step program to make your first $1000, $3000, and $5000 online. You’ll be given all the tools and training you need to get started. You’ll even get a personal one-on-one coach who will work with you and answer any questions you may have. All you have to do is follow the system and do what your coach advises. You may not pull down $8,000 during lunch like I did, but it is pretty easy to make $1000 to $5000 a month from it.
The application fee is $49, and allows you to go through all 21 steps (anyone who tells you otherwise is lying). I recommend you go through the steps, then decide if this is something you want to do. If it is, great! Welcome aboard. If you decided this is not something you want to do at this time, then get a refund and go on with your life. I can’t make it simpler than that.
