Gluten Free Bread Offered at restaurant in Carson City, Nevada

Reviewer: BeenToBaliToo from Carson City, NV
Reviewed on Dec 13, 2012

It's very difficult to find a restaurant in northern Nevada that carries gluten-free bread. This charming, fun restaurant has gluten-free bread, hamburger buns, pizza skins, and a large variety of gluten-free options. They don't have a seperate gluten-free menu, but our server seemed very well-versed in what contained gluten and what did not. She apologized that they don't have any gluten-free desserts in their long list of desserts! But I had enjoyed my ham and brie sandiwch, soup, jalapeno carrots, and this wonderful appetizer called "Eviled Eggs," that I didn't miss dessert at all. This restaurant is located in downtown Carson City right near the capitol, and also has a bar that has live music. It's a trendy addition to the downtown area and well worth checking out!

A Gluten-Free Taste of India in San Diego, CA

Reviewer: BeenToBaliToo from Carson City, NV
Reviewed on Dec 11, 2012

Indian food is my favorite cuisine, and I have found it challenging to find Indian restaurants which are well-versed on gluten issues. So what a treat it was to find this fine dining, cultural experience in the heart of the gas lamp district in San Diego! Although the restaurant inside looked beautiful and inviting, I chose to dine outside on the sidewalk while I watched the world go up and down the street at a much faster pace than I was willing to go at the time. Everything slowed, as I took a break from shopping and enjoyed the impeccable service, and was treated to such delectables as Mango Chicken Tikka and Banana Curry. My only regret was that I was only in town for a few days and couldn't sample all the many gluten free selections on the menu! The menu items are not marked as gluten free, but just tell your waiter you are gluten free and he/she will point out the few dishes that you shouldn't have. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Dining Delight at Donovan's restaurant in San Diego

Reviewer: BeenToBaliToo

The gas lamp district in San Diego is the California equivalent to Bourbon Street in New Orleans, they tell me. Lots of fun, a vast number of choices for fine or fun dining--complete with the ambiance of sidewalk, cafe-style, dining even in the winter months! Donovan's did not have gluten free menu items listed on their menu, so I asked if they had any available. They assured me the chef would work with me to provide a meal to my satisfaction. The waiter was extremely helpful, and came back to me once with a question from the chef. (A sure sign that great care is being taken with one's meal.) I ordered a medium-rare Ahi (sushi grade) that was presented on the plate as if it were a work of art. It was delightful! Add the fine dining to the fun of sitting outside watching people stroll up and down the street--it just couldn't have been a nicer experience.

Pinkberry Groupie -- love the gluten free yogurt at San Diego shop

Reviewer: BeenToBaliToo from Carson City, Nevada, USA

Like some other things in life, I am guessing we never forget our first Pinkberry frozen yogurt experience. I thought I had already tasted the ultimate frozen yogurt until I walked into Pinkberry and ordered theirs. So creamy! So flavorful! So gluten free! It's a beautiful thing! Note: This Pinkberry had four flavors to choose from and all were gluten free. However, being unfamiliar with this business, I do not know if all of their flavors are always gluten free or not. Best to ask before ordering. And, of course, not all the toppings are gluten free.

Step Back in Time at the "Hotel Del" -- plus gluten free meals at this historic San Diego hotel

Step back in time at this glorious resort by the sea! Although I have not yet had the good fortune to actually stay at the resort, I did attend a cocktail hour and business dinner there in the grand ballroom. The restaurant had been notified ahead of time that I would need a gluten-free meal. They provided me a wonderful meal, and I felt 100% confident that it had been prepared in a gluten-free manner. They even made sure I had a gluten-free dessert! If just dining there, allow time to wander the vast grounds and buildings. There are lighted sand castles on the beach at night, ice skating in the winter time, gift shops, a small museum, and be sure to learn about the infamous Kate Morgan who sadly committed suicide there in the late 1800's and is said to still haunt the old hotel. It is a fascinating story!
