Turkey Day Everyday: Gobble Restaurant in Woodinville | January 12, 2013

While Christmas shopping a few weeks back, the little lady and I spotted a sign on a strip mall display in Woodinville. This sign intrigued us, seeing as how it was one word: “GOBBLE“. After pointing out the sign, I raised one eyebrow and glanced at my wife….just in time to see her giving me the exact same look. Our curiosity took us to the door to puruse the menu. We found that the focus of the restaurant was…you guessed it….everything turkey on a plate.

Gobble restaurant was opened 3 months ago. The whole point of this little spot is to make you feel as if you have come home to your childhood kitchen table to enjoy your mother’s home cooked vittles. As you enter, you see kitchen tables with white legs and matching chairs. There are 4 communal tables to encourage guests to meet new people and engage in warm conversation over come cooked comfort food. There are also kitchen cabinets that have been put in the back of the restaurant, along with a bar with seating, to complete the kitchen experience.

The only protein on the menu is turkey. There is an amazing selection of tantalizing turkey treats to choose from including: the classic turkey platter with all the fixins, sandwiches, salads and soups. They even have turkey italian sausage sammies and turkey bacon on their BLT’s. They also serve giant turkey legs for all your inner cavemen OR current King Felix fans.

We enjoyed:

Carved Roasted Turkey Platter (comes with stuffing, gravy, 2 sides and cranberry sauce)

Turkey Meatloaf Plate (Mashed Potatoes, gravy and 2 sides)

How do I describe this…hmmm.  I don’t know if you culinary carnivores out there have seen Disney film Ratatouille. When the evil food critic (whom I am nothing like ….I swear….no way I have ever been that thin….heheh) finds himself flashing back to his mother’s kitchen after sampling a favorite and satisfying  dish…that is what this plate of food felt like to me.

All of the turkey is roasted fresh daily. All soups and dishes are made from scratch and are done the right well. The owner himself came by to ask about our experience and how we like the food. He said that his mission is to serve good food with healthy options and never let a customer leave hungry. We certainly did not leave hungry….we left with a doggy bag of deliciousness.

This is a local, one-of-a-kind business that depends on repeat customers. If you find yourself in April looking for a good Thanksgiving plate but have no desire to make a turkey to get it, this place will hit the spot. We will most certainly be back to sample more varieties of this amazing bird. Gobble Restaurant, I give thanks for you…what an awesome and unique concept.

I give this delightful little place 3 1/2 bellypats!!

I will leave you with this quote: I can’t cook a Thanksgiving dinner. All I can make is cold cereal and maybe toast – Charlie Brown

Snack Responsibly Everyone!!
