Along with a super cool and very inviting decor, Sunda did not disappoint. There are actually three different gluten-free menus to choose from, a brunch menu, lunch menu and dinner menu. Brunch is only offered on weekends - Saturday from 10am-3pm and Sunday from 10am-4pm. This Examiner was there during lunch time so the gluten-free lunch menu was offered.

The Sunda Bento Box was a hit! Included in the Bento Box is Miso Soup, four pieces of Avocado Roll or Spicy Tuna and a choice of Grilled Salmon Filet or Grilled Chicken Breast. This Examiner chose the Avocado Roll and Grilled Chicken Breast (as pictured) and loved every bite! A close second menu choice was the gluten-free Pad Thai, which is one of her favorite dishes. She hopes to get back and try that very soon!
One of the other guests had the Kale and Seaweed Salad and that was a hit as well! Included in the Kale and Seaweed Salad is Mizuna, Carrot, Wakame, Cabbage, Cucumber, Basil, Mint, Onion, Pickled Beet, Radish and Sesame Seeds in addition to the fresh Kale and Toasted Seaweed. This guest noted it was a very unique and interesting salad, one like he had never had before and he really enjoyed it!
The third guest was this Examiner's twelve year old son. Much to her delight, his meal was also a hit! What was awesome about Sunda, is they are very accommodating with modifications to their menu. His meal consisted of just plain grilled chicken and rice. This may sound bland and boring to some, but he seriously could not get enough of the chicken and wanted more! It was very fresh and tasty even plain, which is good to know for those who not only need to eat gluten-free but like things on the plain side too.
Sunda also offers a wide array of gluten-free Sushi options as well as an extensive wine and sake menu.
Sunda can accommodate private events as well for groups ranging in size from 20-300 guests. They will also cater to parties and corporate events.
Sunda is part of the excellent group of restaurants owned by Rockit Ranch Productions. They are located at 110 W. Illinois and besides their weekend brunch hours listed above, are open for lunch Monday-Friday from 11:30am-3pm and for dinner Monday-Wednesday from 5pm-11pm, Thursday and Friday from 5pm-Midnight, Saturday from 4pm-Midnight and Sunday from 4pm-11pm.
HGTV recently named Sunda as one of the most romantic hotspots in Chicago to eat at so keep that in mind too when planning for a romantic night out or considering your upcoming Valentine's Day plans where you need to find a great gluten-free place for your sweetheart!
