Last week I went over to Hu Kitchen on 5th and 13th. For weeks people have been telling me how great this place is, and I figured I would give it a shot since I am in my final half of my diet.
When we got there I was really surprised, the place was like a dark trendy Korean Deli. There was a coffee section, juice bar, cold food section, hot food section, prepackaged items…etc. Luckily I went with some people who have been there before, because there was a lot to choose from and they were smart enough to grab seats upstairs before we grabbed our food. People were holding down tables like it was there job. I was just waiting for a fight to breakout between these paleo-addicts.
I decided to start with The Wild Meatloaf, with a two sides. The meatloaf was 100% grass-fed org ground beef, wild elk, Berkshire pork, org egg, onion, garlic, parsley, cumin, housemade BBQ sauce, cayenne pepper. This was one of the best pieces of meatloaf I have ever ate. Nice consistency with a little kick from the cayenne pepper. This will definitely be my goto main dish at Hu. The side dishes I got the Roasted Butternut Squash and Rotisserie Pineapple. Both great sides, highly recommend both. When I went back on Saturday afternoon I actually ordered the same sides again.
Along with the meatloaf, which is a nice portion, I decided in the sake of research to try the bison burger also. The Iron Mike Bison Burger is only a special I believe, and I didn’t see it the next time I went back. If you see this on the menu, grab it. The meat was pretty juicy for bison, and had some great flavors.
This Saturday we went back I grab a healthy lunch before our massive upcoming meal at Del Posto later that night. I went with the Diesel Parker which is the Grandmaster Veg with 100% grass fed HuJoe Beef. The Grandmaster Veg is a grain/dairy free lasagna, made with eggplant, carrot, green cabbage, cashew, house made marinara, garlic and chili flake. This is massive and pretty good, definitely check it out as well.
