Before ever planning a trip to London, I heard so many things about it. "The food is expensive and crappy." "The people are rude." "The food sucks." "It's expensive." Well all of that was so far from the truth, it's laughable. Here's a list of things I heard from people about London's lacking qualities that I discovered were untrue after visiting there.
Margaritas are done by many, but perfected by few.
Pizza Rock Downtown Las Vegas
The free concerts on Fremont street aren't the only rocking place in downtown Las Vegas.
Pizza Rock rolls and rocks out over 400 pizzas on weekend nights and 30 gluten free pizzas to boot.
Sivan, the fabulous creator and blogger of The Olive Brunette, and I ventured off to Pizza Rock to try their gluten free pizza and we were thoroughly impressed.
We met Chef Andrew in the kitchen so we could see how they create their delicious gluten free pizza.
Tao Restaurant is a swanky Asian fusion joint on the fabulous Las Vegas strip.
Typically, a group of girlfriends and myself can be found here on a Thursday at least once a month for it's incredible comped dinner for gals. Yes you read that right, a group of women can get a free dinner at Tao on Thursdays. Make sure you tip the waiter though. If you want access to this comped dinner, contact my buddy Dom here. If he gets you in, make sure to tip him as well.
On one extravagant non-Thursday night, some of my friends went to Tao for a friend's birthday.
No list for Mexico would EVER be complete without tacos. It's number one on the list and rightly so. Tacos are a staple in Mexico and you can find it on almost every street corner, and you'll probably find several vendors vying for your business. Also luckily for you gluten-free-ers, most stands and shops use corn tortillas. And even more lucky for all of us foodies, most stands hand make their corn tortillas daily and sometimes on the spot. Don't miss these mouth watering treats.
Fourth of July is a day filled with fireworks, drinks, and gluten-y food. As a gluten free-er, navigating a party is frustrating enough, but 4th of July adds an extra level of stress with all the beer and hot dogs. Here are some information to support you on this festive day without getting gluten-ed.
The Gluten Free and Allergen Expo took place in Glendale, AZ this pass weekend and Travel Far Gluten Free was in attendance as an official blogger of the expo. We ate our way through the entire expo looking for the latest and greatest gluten free foods. Here was our top picks from the expo…
Gluten Free: Nigiri, basic rolls
Things to avoid: soy sauce, tempura, eel sauce, imitation crab
Sushi is my personal go to gluten free eat. It's yummy, and gluten free as long as you stick to the nigiri (rice and fish) and basic rolls (California, spicy tuna, etc). Make sure to avoid rolls with imitation crab, tempura, crunchies, and gluten containing sauces, such as ponzu or eel sauce. Also ask the server for gluten free soy sauce. If they don’t have it, don't use the regular soy sauce even if it's a "tiny, weeny, little bit, how can it possibly hurt me?". Because trust me. It will. I know from personal experience. I carry a mini bottle of gluten free soy sauce in case the restaurant doesn't have some.
*Sushi is great, but be careful ordering other Japanese cuisine items. Almost EVERYTHING in Japanese cuisine is cooked in or with soy sauce.
