Our Story

Ivy Lau and Mark Ivey “launched” Ivy’s Garden in 2012 with the intent of bringing healthy, delicious gluten free dishes to the public. Believing strongly that everyone deserves good, healthy food, they were shocked a few years ago to find a shortage of tasty gluten free dishes- and no gluten free Chinese food.

 

They’ve worked hard to fill the void by bringing natural, delicious GF Asian dishes. It’s the real thing, not just American versions of Chinese food (Ivy’s roots and knowledge go back to her Hong Kong upbringing). The result is food that’s as tasty as any non-GF dish in the market. Now everyone has a seat at the table. Enjoy!
