Mathew Meininger of Nampa, who has owned a Nampa Sinclair Gusher gas station for 31 years, has opened a specialty food hut on the property.
The Grub Hut, on the corner of 3rd Avenue South and eastbound Nampa-Caldwell Boulevard, sells food prepared with vegan, gluten-free, low-carb and/or paleo recipes.
The fast-food hut is open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday with a menu that includes typical lunch items such as wraps, salads, soups and snacks.
The hut also serves teas, smoothies and oatmeal.
Cheryl Richard, restaurant consultant for the Grub Hut, said the food hut serves a diet that is increasingly common but hard to find at restaurants in Canyon County.
“We are the only restaurant I know of that uses no dairy, sugar, flour in our food,” she said.
