Thr1ve has recently introduced sandwiches in gluten-free buns to their menu. Yep, gluten-free buns are still buns (i.e. a source of excess carbohydrate that you may or may not need) but sometimes it’s nice to sink your teeth in a pillowy starchy bun.
An inside source told me Notorious P.I.G. (Asian style slow roasted pulled pork w. kaleslaw & sesame seeds) was his favourite of the range, so that’s what I ordered. I liked the fact that it comes tightly wrapped (burger-style) and packed in a box for easy transport. The sandwich looks small but it’s pretty filling. The meat was awesome but I was not a big fan of the crumpet-y bun. I do know it has better ingredients than most commercial gluten-free buns, so I would rather eat these.
