  • List Primal-friendly restaurants in your city!

    I sometimes forget my lunch and have to eat out while at work because I am actually hungry and not in the mood for a fast. And sometimes I like to have lunch with friends. I was eating out today and thinking a list of Primal-friendly joints and meals would be very helpful -- so I'm starting one! Feel free to add for your city.

    Victoria,BC

    Shine Cafe -- all the meat and eggs in this breakfast and lunch diner are local and organic. Suggested lunch: the full breakfast, which is 3 eggs, bacon, ham AND sausage, grilled tomato, fruit salad if you feel like fruit. Organic mint tea.

    Foo -- Asian street food joint. Order the Pork and Prawn Lettuce cups, ask them to hold the sugar in the sauce. Awesomeness.

    Pig -- Southern BBQ. Order the pulled pork without a bun, or the dry rub short ribs, with coleslaw. Tell them to hold the spicy sauce.

    Saigon Harbour -- Vietnamese. Ask them to make the tofu curry with chicken instead (they will), no rice or noodles. You will get a giant bowl of strips of chicken thigh, veggies and curry sauce made with real butter you can taste. 80/20 consideration: this joint makes the best spring rolls in the city, bar none. If you eat rice as part of your 80/20, order one.

    Opa -- Greek food in the food court, Bay Centre. Order the low-carb plate with chicken or lamb. I always ask for double meat. Choose from Greek salad made fresh with real olive oil, or Ceasar (tell them to hold the croutons and they will make a salad just for you.)

    Anyone else want to chime in?

      I read just this last week that Panda Express' whole kitchen is contaminated with gluten, soy etc- they all are probably. My best bet is probably Texas Steak House.

            Re: my house -- yes, yes, I know food from home is the best, guys. But sometimes things happen and we end up in a restaurant. It is Primal living in a modern world.

            Will have to hunt up some Brazilian. Never heard of Bareburger.

                Ok, not everything on the menu at this place is primal BUT, they serve only grassfed beef organic burgers....and you can get it wrapped up in a lettuce bun.

                      Caseus in New Haven, CT. Amazing food, all sourced well in Primal style. If you eat cheese, they have an amazing selection. Also great booze, and long beer list.

                        Not *exactly* Primal as they do have a pretty wide variety of grainy selections, BUT they emphasize quality sourced cuts of meat (for example they have a Free Range Roasted Half Chicken dish and at least our location boasts grass fed beef for their steaks) and have a lot of good veggie sides -- my favorite is the steamed asparagus!

                          In the Denver area, there's a paleo/primal food truck, the Caveman Cafeteria.

                          There's a blurb about it in Westword: Eat like a caveman:
                          It sounds like a spoof, but the Caveman Cafeteria -- Denver's newest (and only) food truck specializing in paleo diet dishes -- is no joke. Even though its owner, Will White, is a comedian.

                          An Army veteran, White was stationed at Fort Carson until May, then moved to Denver after realizing "it was the best city in the world," he says. Already involved in the local comedy scene, he decided to start a food truck because of the growing market of people interested in the paleo, or Caveman, diet, which stresses grass-fed meat and vegetables. . .
