I recently visited my hometown and, while there, indulged in a visit to a chain restaurant. I'm normally a bit opposed to chain restaurants, primarily because it feels strange to me to be able to order something in New York and California and have it taste the same way. But hey, when you're gluten free, chains are a great places to go because many of them are now offering gluten free menus.
When I was looking through Ninety Nine's gluten free menu I was initially torn: do I get something that is often gluten free like Salmon or do I go for something that is more unique, like a burger with the restaurant's gluten free bun?
I opted for the latter and was not disappointed. My waitress was talking about the restaurant's gluten free bun as if it were a godsend so I knew I had to try it out. I'm sorry that I didn't take a picture of the bun because it was great and didn't crumble at first touch. I realize that is a common complaint of mine, but after having my share of terrible gluten free buns I feel qualified to say that a bun that stays composed instead of falling apart on first touch is worth acknowledging and complimenting.
Overall, eating gluten free at Ninety Nine was an easy experience and one that I wouldn't be against doing again.
Do you love it or do you love it?
