My goal is to discover gluten-free food in the District to make your gluten-free diet easier.
1712 I St NW, Washington, DC 20006
What I got: Gluten-free waffle sandwich with tomato, mozzarella & arugula with balsamic and extra-virgin olive oil dressing.
Gluten-free friendliness: Gluten-free waffles people. They’re delicious. I didn’t realize I missed waffles until I had this amazing bite of heaven that tastes like the real thing. Almost every topping on the extensive menu can be ordered on a gluten-free waffle, with the exceptions of tuna and chicken salad that contain bread crumb seasonings. The gluten-free waffles are made with tapioca flour and cost an extra .95 cents. If you’re not feeling a waffle, soup and salad options are available as well.
Overall vibe: Wicked Waffle’s mantra “No butter, no syrup” may be true, but fear not. There is plenty of everything else you could ever want to eat on a waffle. (Roasted Fuji apples and cinnamon, anyone?) Both the space and the beige, styrofoam containers (neither environmentally friendly nor appetizing) make this a great grab-and-go meal for professionals in the surrounding office buildings. A few tables and chairs are available if you have a little more time on your hands.
Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go again
