About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.

Relish Gourmet Burgers - Restaurant Review

Relish Gourmet Burgers opened up this summer in St. John's. I'm always eager to try new restaurants, and this one had a special draw because it has gluten free hamburger buns from Nourish :)

I had heard mixed reviews but figured I'd take the risk and try it out.

We got there around 5:45 on a Friday and it was starting to get a little busy by 6ish.

Basically they have 3 types of burgers to pick from - beef, turkey (contains pork), and vegetarian. Not being a huge meat eater, I chose the vegetarian after hearing what was in it - chickpeas, quinoa,  onions and spices. They are made in-house and gluten free.

I chose the Cabo Diablo - which was spicy and had salsa, guacamole, sour cream and hot sauce - and of course the gluten free bun!

The sides were a little limited as the fryers are shared with the glutened onion rings so I chose the coleslaw which they said was safe.

The burger was very tasty, the bun was great, but it was kind of like sloppy joe in that it kept falling apart...either way - yummy!

Prices were a little expensive - $15 for a side, hamburger and drink but it was unique in that they did have GF buns and different burger options.

I think I would go for a treat every now and then - but maybe even try to make my own burger at home.

Has anyone else tried here?


  1. Is this a picture of your burger with a gluten free bun?

  3. Wow. On a recent visit, my bun looked nothing like that. Yours looks much softer and almost identical to the regular ones. Strange that they would change them.

  4. Yeah - I was surprised as well. I've had Nourish buns before, and they were smaller, but tasted similar. I figured they might have just made them bigger for the restaurant. If you look closely you can see the bottom is kind of smaller, but it looks bigger because all the "Stuff" crept out the sides!
