Ruggles Green Review, Part 2
|Their welcome sign!|
Like the last time I enjoyed a meal at Ruggles Green, I walked in craving a burger. A girl can only live off of loaded salads (the easiest meal to prepare away from home) for so long! Though I had several options to choose from, I ended up ordering the Turkey Burger on Ruggles' own gluten free bun with a side of sweet potato fries. The fries are marked gluten free on the menu, but you can imagine my excitement when I learned they were actually gluten free (i.e. not cooked in a shared fryer) and therefore celiac friendly.
|Then, now, and a wall full of condiments!|
And the taste? Absolutely delicious! My burger was HUGE, and cooked through while still being juicy. A couple layers of crunchy lettuce + melted mozzarella daiya cheese (a dairy free score!) + tomato slices + organic mustard and ketchup (varieties of which each customer chooses from the wall of condiments) = an edible heaven in my hand. All held together by a bun that, besides boasting a soft, flaky texture, didn't fall apart like many gluten free breads.
|Time for my close up!|
A few days before we left Houston, though, I needed one more Ruggles Green fix. This time we chose the to-go option, usually a no-go for celiacs. Despite ordering on the phone to the wrong location (my bad!), I still walked out with a 12 inch gluten free veggie pizza after only twenty minutes of waiting.
