This week Neil and I tried Hubbox in Plymouth for lunch. Neil has been before and really liked it. We checked the menu and saw that they had some gluten free options so I was excited to give it a try.
Hubbox is inspired by American street food. Their burgers are award winning and made from 21 day dry aged Cornish Beef. With a number of locations across the Southwest, Hubbox is a great place for lunch.
We arrived and were seated in a booth downstairs, they have lots of seating upstairs as well. Hubbox is accessible and has a large disabled toilet. Staff were friendly and were able to explain the gluten free options and offered to show me the allergens list. I’d already had a look online, where all the menus and allergen information is easily available. Check them out here. Food is available to eat in or takeaway.
The majority of the burgers on the menu are available gluten free. Basically, you get your burger served in a gluten free wrap instead of a bun. Most of the sides were gluten free as well. Obviously as with many places, there is a risk of cross contamination.
I had a very nice drink – a Hub Raspberry Lemonade – raspberries, freshly squeezed lemon juice & home made sugar syrup topped with soda.
The drink was AMAZING. I love lemon and I love raspberries and I could have drank these all day. I totally recommend you getting one when you visit Hubbox.
I’d decided to go for a Brie B King Burger. This is a grilled chicken breast, Cornish Brie, bacon jam, maple & garlic mayo with wild rocket. In the interests of honesty, I hate rocket so I did pick it all out! I went for a side of cheesy fries. I don’t often get fries because they are rarely gluten free, so I always jump at the chance to have them whenever I can.
As I said before, the burger comes in a gluten free wrap. I wondered if it would be easy to eat as a wrap, but actually it’s genius. The wrap means your filling doesn’t fall out everywhere! The fries were really nice, they are hand cut and double fried, making a really crispy-on-the-outside-fluffy-on-the-inside chip! Topped with a very generous amount of cheese, I really enjoyed them.
The burger was so good. The wrap was nice as well and I was able to pretend I was being healthy and not really having a great big burger for lunch!
Hubbox has a very cool, relaxed and chilled vibe. The staff are friendly and informative and service is speedy. It’s a great place to spend time with friends, eating really great food. I’m very pleased to be adding Hubbox, Plymouth to my gluten free friendly places to eat!
