Seattle Biscuit Company

In my quest to eat pretty much every biscuit in Seattle, I made a special effort to track down the Seattle Biscuit Company food truck. I was pleased to find it Saturday morning in the Central District at Chuck’s Hop Shop (which, by the way, has excellent beer and food trucks along with a pleasant little patio). Not to be confused with Biscuit Box, which I wrote about in a previous entry, the Biscuit Company is proud of “hand-building” their biscuits and using locally sourced ingredients.

The menu was mostly savory (and intriguing – I’d love to try the Che biscuit, with bacon, egg, cheese, ham, pickles, apple butter, and mustard) but there were a couple sweet options. The one that caught my eye: The Hickey Dewberry – just bacon and a generous helping of homemade jelly.

imageI loved the combo of sweet and savory – the jelly was the perfect counter to the salty, and perfectly crispy, bacon. In fact, the homemade jelly was my favorite part of the whole concoction – bright and intensely flavorful, sweet but with no shades of Smuckers. As for the biscuit, it was well-crafted and had good flavor. I did wish for a bit more flaky-ness and a crackly exterior, but overall it gets the thumbs up.
