Staff member reviews Gella’s new menu

Delia Dixon

Gella’s Diner and Lb. Brewing Co. has recently updated their menu.

The popular dining spot on 11th Street has expanded its menu to feature more elevated options, including new steaks, seafood and pastas. They also added a variety of wings, burgers and other new entrée options. Along with these additions, there are still dishes from the previous menu. The Fort Hays Tiger chicken sandwich, chicken pesto pasta and Brewben, to name a few, continue to hold a spot on the Gella’s menu.

Out of the many dishes that I tried, my favorite was definitely the brown sugar glazed salmon. The salmon had a crisp, sweet and smoky outer layer while still presenting flavor through the inside. It tasted fresh and light, and the portion was not too much or too little.

I sampled two different appetizers as well: garlic cheese curds and ahi tuna poke nachos. The cheese curds were tasty. They were not overly greasy, and I enjoyed them. The first thing I thought of when I tried the poke nachos was the beach. The fish tasted fresh, and the sauces added more flavor. I also liked the chunks of avocado that further added to that fresh taste that I loved.

Among the new entrees, I tried the spicy honey garlic noodles. The garlic noodles are a ramen dish with bulgogi steak and vegetables. While this strays from the traditional foods that Gella’s tends to focus on, it was very well done. The sweet and spicy noodles were very flavorful, and the steak was also delicious.

A new sandwich that has been added to the menu is the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. I am not usually fond of foods with major spice. This happened to be one of those foods that I could not enjoy. The sauce was too spicy for my taste, and I felt that it overpowered the flavor of the chicken.

Overall, I am happy with the new Gella’s menu. I like how they expanded the variety of dishes they offer while still having all high-quality menu items. By experimenting with different ideas and new recipes, I think that Gella’s has created a great new menu where people will be able to expand their horizons and try new foods that do not disappoint.
