A Must Have Gluten Free Colorado Springs Experience,

Have you ever had a meal that left you so completely satisfied that you were left without an ability to explain it, but rather just a sense of total peace? This was my Uchenna experience to me, it seemed to be a calm in the middle of a chaotic world. The owner and Chef is Maya, who greeted us with the biggest smile and sense of happiness that I have ever gotten from someone in a restaurant. When taking our order she simply asked us "What would make you happy today?" Needless to say I was thrown off by this... Mike and I each got the vegetarian combo plate, which each came with Injera (teff bread from Ethiopia). To eat in Ethiopian culture you use your hands, meaning that you have to get dirty and personal with your food. I LOVED THIS. The food was spicy, vibrant, delicious, flavorful, and filling. Each mouth full was an experience worth pausing to admire.

Honestly, we often make food another commodity in today's world, and treat it as such, rather than realizing it can be a great source of happiness, but here this was clearly not the case. Maya takes the time to prepare something delightful and you are made to take the time to enjoy it in equal fashion if you dare take the time to relax and slow down. Gluten free items are labeled on the main menu itself, and there are very few items that aren't gluten free so there is variety. However, the menu isn't extensive, but it's a kind reminder that simple is more cases than not better than complex. After all, in my eyes it's quality over quantity any day. Overall this was a lovely experience that I highly recommend.

100% of Uchenna's menu is either gluten-free or can be made such, with a rich assortment of vegan, vegetarian, and organic meats to choose from. Authentic Ethiopian and Mediterranean cuisine. Great food and great value.
