Not a good place to dine gluten free

Reviewer: Mickig from
Reviewed on Jun 25, 2013

What a disaster. When I attended the school, there were basically no gluten-free options. The main dining facility, The Diner, is just pizza, pasta, nasty meat, and a disgusting salad bar. I discovered there was nothing for me to eat there on the first day of school, so I contacted the person in charge of dietary issues and had a meeting with her. She told me about a gluten-free freezer in the back of the kitchen which held the following things: freezer burned bread, brownies and nasty rice noodle pasta microwavable meals. Someone cannot live on this food, it was absolutely disgusting. To top it off, it was embarrassing and inconvenient to have to go to a separate area and heat up nasty frozen food. Also, the workers had absolutely no idea what gluten free was so there was a lot of cross contamination which made for a lot of humiliating experiences like throwing away food, etc. I was in the Food Allergy Awareness Club before I left and I think they might have made some changes since December, but when I attended the school it was a nightmare and a half.

Tulane's Gluten Free Dining Food

Reviewer: Mickig from New Orleans, LA
Reviewed on Jun 25, 2013

Tulane's gluten-free dining facilities are A+. A separate fridge is stocked continuously throughout the day with homemade gluten-free dishes which are delicious. Inside the fridge there are three sections sensitive to different diets: gluten free with meat, gluten free pescatarian, and vegan. There is a separate designated gluten-free toaster, panini press and microwave in a roped off section of the cafeteria with gluten-free bagels, bread and muffins. The chefs know you on a first name basis and you have each others contact information if you need to get in touch. Outside of the special gluten-free section, the mainstream food is usually good. There is a hummus and carrot bar, a well stocked salad bar and a number of gluten free Chex cereals available. Chefs know what it means to be gluten-free so there is little cross contamination if you let them know. Overall, the school provides healthy delicious meals that make being gluten-free in college very easy.
