Bubby's Kitchen

Bubby's Kitchen on UrbanspoonBubby's Kitchen is quite a nice restaurant featuring interesting decor and local artwork, and several paragraphs on their menu about the intriguing corner bench featuring rough-hewn wood picked locally. On a sunny day, you can expect a brightly lit room with an energetic vibe. You can expect it to be quite busy, so try to avoid the lunch rush.

The menu is quite extensive and features many vegetarian items and gluten free options.

Truffle Honey Chicken Burger ($14) Grilled Rossdown chicken thighs, slow roasted roma tomato & garlic relish, pickled onion, lettuce, feta cheese & roasted garlic aioli. All of our burgers, wraps & sandwiches are served with your choice of soup, salad, or fries. Upgrade to Caesar salad, Yam or Truffle fries for $1. Substitute a gluten-free bun for $1.5.
  • As expected, the gluten-free bun was on the dry and grainy side. If you're not celiac, you're just paying to ruin your burger. Stick with the regular bun.
  • The truffle fries were passable, but compared others I've had (e.g., Joe Fortes), weak on truffle and parmesan.
  • I vaguely remember the burger to be good, but not particularly special. At $14, part of the cost is probably poultry that is hormone and antibiotic free (as all meats at Bubby's Kitchen are).
Flourless Dark Chocolate Torte (GF) ($5.95) Moist, dark, mysterious! Rich enough for two.
  • This one might have been kitchen error. Came out more like an overdone lava cake: Dry and crumbly on the outside, a bit of damp mush on the inside.
  • I had expected something more like a sachertorte, or at least a chocolate cake on the moister like-a-brownie side.
  • Portion size for basically $6 was okay.
