Biscuit Box

March 18, 2015

Food trucks can be hard to track down, so I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon Biscuit Box last week in South Lake Union at lunchtime (not to be confused with the Seattle Biscuit Company, which is another biscuit food truck… that’s my kind of traffic jam). The Biscuit Box has two sides, sweet and salty – literally, the menus are on opposite sides of the window:


Well you can guess which side I went for (although the pork belly biscuit sandwich sounds like it deserves a return visit)! I chose the buttermilk biscuit with butter and strawberry freezer jam. I was surprised by the way they serve it – a buttered biscuit with a generous ladle of strawberry syrup-jam.


Yes, you have to eat it with a fork. Yes, it tastes amazing. It ends up being almost like strawberry shortcake, except no cream, and it’s a biscuit instead of shortcake… ok, so it’s different, but the idea is the same: the jam soaks into the biscuit.  I will be back to try the savory options – thank you twitter for giving me the means to stalk this biscuity goodness.
