The Fare: Gluten-free bowls
Situated on the outskirts of the food truck cluster of South Lake Union,the fledgling food cart GFF resembles more of a hot dog stand than a bona fide food enterprise. But this cute cart could not be any more different than a hot dog stand.
I Love My Gluten Free Food pours some out for their gluten-free homies who have always felt disrespected in the carb-centric burger and sandwich lovin' food truck scene. GFF's specialty is sprouted quinoa bowls topped with veggies and/or cubes of Draper Valley Farm's chicken.
Andrea, the perky owner of I Love My GFF, identified the need for this type of food cart. When she was working a busy corporate job, she always lamented about the lack of quick, gluten-free food options. Having to bring her lunch while watching her co-workers pop out for a quick bite to eat was starting to affect her Excel spreadsheets.
Less than two weeks on the food truck scene, Andrea and her sidekick Josh are already selling out of food.
The two bowl menu allows you to reserve your decision making skills for bigger things. The fiesta bowl comes with a cilantro-lime sauce with pepitas, red peppers, avocado and more; while the Sunshine bowl has a lemon basil undertone and is also loaded with veggies.
Skipping the chicken puts you $7.50 in the hole, while $9.50 will land you el pollo. An Alexander Hamilton seems a bit steep for a small rice bowl, but Andrea is doing us a favor by serving up kosher food portions for people who don't want to slip into a food coma afterwards.
The sauce in the Fiesta is overly tangy and could use some tweaks, but is not too shabby considering they are less than a month in the game.
For dessert, try a homemade chocolate chip cookie made with almond flour and coconut flour.
