My best friend Ashley asked me Thursday afternoon if I wanted to take a road trip to the beach the next day, and I of course said yes! I looked forward to tanning and splashing in the ocean. This was Foxx's first trip to the beach, so I was excited to see him enjoy the ocean.
Ashley's also gluten free, so agreeing on places and things to eat was easier than going out with non-gluten free friends. I packed up food for us to enjoy in the car and we found a pretty cool eatery along the way...
Menu at Ate 8 Dumpling and Noodles
Aptly named, Ate 8 featured eight main menu items for $8.88 each, featuring soups, rice dishes, and dumplings. We asked the kind cashier for gluten free options, and he said we can swap the noodles in the soup for the gluten free veggie noodles at no extra cost. SCORE! Usually places charge more for the gluten free option, and I loved that they just offered it for free. They even have a sign in front of the cash register featuring this option. Ashley ordered the clear broth while I went for the braised beef noodle soup.
