So I thought that I would share will everyone that I just tried a brand new eat-out place that just opened in DC called District Taco (located at 13th and F st.). I got to talk with the owner of the place since it is a new restaurant he was there to answer all my questions. So I should first start out by saying that I am highly allergic to Gluten and if I even touch gluten I will break out or if I eat it I will get short of breath right away. So of course I was very leery as to if I should try there corn tortilla (SOFT) not because I would be allergic to the corn tortilla (Yeah that is right SOFT not hard) but because of the cross contamination so I grilled the owner as to there process and then watched. They actually have designated a second section on the burner for gluten free tortilla's only which was nice and if they are dealing with gluten free issue person they will change gloves so no cross contamination there. It was also nice that it seem like they have so far trained all there employees very well in the gluten free way because everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable and on one page. So as far as the taste test the taco was superb the most authentic Mexican taco I have ever tasted. Almost all there salsa's they offered were gluten free, too, which was nice. As for allergic reaction which if there was even a speck of Gluten on it or in it I would have know ASAP. THERE WAS NONE only a full satisfied belly. NOTE: The owner said that if you always tell them that you are Gluten Free they put that on the receipt and that lets the staff know to prepare your meal separately. He said that if you just order the corn tortilla and not say you are GF they will not put it on there and will not cook the tortilla on a separate burner and cross contamination can happen that way, so make sure to always tell the cashier that you are gluten free.
