Founded by acupuncturist and herbalist Neka Pasquale, this organic food company now has nine locations throughout the Bay Area, including three in S.F. proper. The shops dish out plant-based, certified organic foods and drinks. Though most know UR for its additive-free juices—which pack unusual ingredients like dandelion greens and burdock root—the prepared food selection is extensive. The daily assortment includes inventive salads (purple-ginger-beet, anyone?), macro bowls, wraps, and surprisingly tasty low-carb “pasta” dishes that sub zucchini for noodles. The vegan fare is hearty and filling, like the VLT, made with eggplant “bacon,” avocado, lettuce, tomato, vegan farmhouse cheese in a gluten-free coconut wrap. Stock up on snacks like kale chips, banana or cacao brittle, or beet apple granola.
