This is a little story about Stuff’d. I found Stuff’d from influencers on Instagram. Honestly, I’m not sure how i felt about these two influencers, as they typically don’t jive with my type of meals. I mean, they’re fit and skinny and adorable and I am the human incarnation of the cookie monster.
But I should have trusted them, because this place is re-god-damn-diculous.
Stuff’d is a must for any trip to Los Angeles.
The whole menu is gluten-free, and many options are vegan. I was told by my friends at the Celiac Disease Foundation that I needed to try the Hot Chick. I mean, what else would I get?!?! (crickets)
The gentleman at the register was adorable and helpful and did I mention adorable? He was super helpful with answering my initial questions – and I’m sure he gets this all the time “IS IT REALLY ALL GLUTEN FREE????”
But lucky for me, the owners were actually in the restaurant when I was there. When I got up to ask additional questions after digging into my meal, he’s like “why don’t you just ask the owners?” They were the sweetest and only made me want to support this restaurant more.
They wanted to make traditional European dumplings to everyone – celiacs and vegans. And for that, we thank you!
After I had purchased my first dish, the owners were so sweet they just wanted to keep sending me dishes. NO, please no, I was about to burst. But I couldn’t turn down dessert – could I?
They sent over their dessert dumplings – yes, dessert dumplings! Their stone fruit dish, full of peach & nectarine stuffed dumplings, and a crumble with pecans, vanilla ice cream (you can get vegan Coconut Bliss), and a sweet drizzle. OMG you guys – you MUST get dessert when you go here!
I highly recommend this safe, tasty, and actually affordable Los Angeles gluten-free restaurant – STUFF’D.
