So the three minute ferry ride we took, and soon enough, we were bounding about the great wilderness that is Guemes island. While we were bounding about the place, we happened upon Guemes Island Resort, a sweet little pod of cabins on the shore of Guemes island. Delightful does not begin to describe this place. While we were there, we happened upon all things, A FOOD TRUCK!!! Which happened to serve Guemes Island as well as parts of the Skagit Valley. In addition, this particular truck also sells….wait for it…..BURGERS!!! So…we thought…why not? And then we did.
This particular food truck is called DIGS Kitchen. The names of the items are kinda hip hop punk gangsta/star wars. Therefor I ordered the Notorious OG burger (organic beef). Kurt got a Salmon Sandwich named, aptly, Hoagie Juan Kenobi, served on a hoagie with sauteed organic veggies.
My burger was GORGEOUS. No other way to say it. The vegetables were vibrant, fresh and tasty, and the hand cut fries were beautifully brown and crispy. It was cooked MR - M, and by gum, did it have flavor. Loved this burger. Unfortunately, they put dijon mustard on it, and frankly, it overwhelmed the experience a bit. I believe I have written this somewhere before, but, hamburger is a subtle food. In order to really bring out its flavor, it must be seasoned and its accoutrements must compliment, not overshadow, the glory of the meat. So…while the dijon was a good mustard, I would have preferred to have a yellow or no mustard at all on my burger.
The Scores were as follows:
Their meat was organic, and from Costco, so while they got points for caring, they got less for caring enough to use a local source. The cheese was a white cheddar, but was too mild to be discernible. Most of the veggies were organic, and as I said, they held real flavor, which is saying a lot. Usually tomatoes taste like soaking wet cardboard. The price of the burger was 12.95. A great value for such fresh and beautiful food.
The burger would have fared better if it had not been for the overpowering dijon, yes, they missed it by this much. Also…the napkins kinda fell apart if you even glanced their way. I had to use five just to get through my meal, and I don’t even want to talk about how many Kurt used. Because it would seem wasteful. But it isn’t.
So, when you have the time, find your way to Guemes and check out DIGS Kitchen. It is a great little truck that serves high quality, tasty food.
