Uneeda Burger

During day two of our expedition in Seattle my sister and I ventured over to Paseo, the famous Cuban sandwich shop in Fremont.  We were excited to check it out because of all of the advance buzz on the place; practically every person who gave me suggestions for Seattle mentioned Paseo as the place we had to visit.

However, once we arrived, we saw that the menu wasn't particularly gluten free friendly.  Rather than wait in line (which, at 4pm, was pretty long) we decided to walk the block up to Uneeda Burger where I figured I would be able to get a protein-style burger at the very least.  Much to my surprise the restaurant offers gluten free buns, so we decided to pick up lunch from Uneeda Burger before heading over to Gasworks Park (Map) for a view of the city.

I ordered the #8: crimini mushrooms, porcini & black truffle sea salt, shallots & gruyere cheese.  It was delicious!  As I said, we took the burgers to go for a view in Gasworks Park so while the below picture may not be great of the burger make sure to check out the beautiful view of the Seattle skyline in the background.

The burger was a bit messy but the best burgers are, right?  Uneeda Burger is a great spot with gluten free options for those of you living in (or visiting) Seattle and in need of a burger fix.  I also highly recommend a visit to Gasworks Park; after visiting the park we decided not to do the space needle because we felt we had such a spectacular (and free!) view of the city.  There were people flying kites, a few guys using the old gas equipment to do gymnastics, and lush grass.  It was while we were in Gasworks Park that my sister and I turned to each other and said: "Seattle is winning me over."

Do you love it or do you love it?
