Great taste and texture that is “unreal” for gluten-free and vegan- unReal Food (Bakery, Advance Ordering + Farmers Markets)

I’ve felt very guilty about the delay in this particular post, since this is about a visit from quite some time ago. I keep track of my blog post to-dos by picking one photo from the experience (restaurant, sight, event, etc.) and favorite-ing it on my phone (so it gets put into a “Favorites” folder). […]

Gluten-free flatbread-pizza crust in the Design District- Lemoni Pizza and Kitchen (Restaurants)

A few weeks ago it was my manager’s work “anniversary” and I had scheduled a lunch for our team to celebrate. It ended up being rescheduled twice, but yesterday the Outlook O-vite actually happened (although one team member was still missing). My manager suggested Lemoni Cafe or Lemoni Pizza and Kitchen. I was totally down […]

Nothing like a gluten-free’s determination- Laduree (Macarons, French, Gluten-Free)

Over the holidays in Portland I went to breakfast with a friend and discovered the gluten-free joy that is macarons (blog post here). For the longest time I had gotten macarons, macaroons, and meringues confused and didn’t know how much I was missing out with macarons (the one with just one “o”). And they are […]

A little taste of Italy (and isolation from Miami) on the Upper Eastside- Ironside Pizza (Gluten-Free)

Given my love of food and the many years I’ve know that I have celiac (about 24), you can imagine that hearing or reading about a restaurant with special gluten-free options catches my attention pretty quickly and strongly. When it comes up in conversation or I overhear a mention, I’m actually pretty sure my reaction […]

Is it socially acceptable to just have multiple Pizookie’s for a meal?- BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse (Doral, Gluten-Free Pizza/Cookies)

Last year I was in Tallahassee for work and like most trips to other cities I did a search for gluten-free options. Tallahassee was where I first had the gluten-free awesomeness that is Jason’s Deli on an earlier trip. On this trip I was surprised to see that BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse had gluten-free pizza. […]

Look Mom I ate a burger with my hands!- Burger and Beer Joint (Gluten-Free buns, South Beach/Brickell)

Note: the South Beach location is no longer a Burger and Beer franchise and has changed names. Unsure if they still have gluten-free buns.  After a somewhat early night out in South Beach (ie. ending around 11 PM), my friends and I were pretty hungry and a few people wanted to eat at Burger and […]

CLOSED: Gluten-free food so good it makes you feel normal!- Weezie’s Gluten-Free Kitchen (Oakland Park)

Unfortunately, Weezie’s recently announced that the storefront was closing. It’s a major loss… I would be on the lookout to see if she returns with something maybe online or perhaps selling at farmers markets, which is where she first got her start.  I for a very very long time had wanted to make a visit […]

CLOSED: The Holy Grail of gluten-free eating in Miami- Oolite (South Beach)

Was devastated to learn that Oolite had closed… Hopefully Kris Wessel opens up another restaurant soon and with similarly delicious gluten-free fare! One of the days that I was in Portland I was on Twitter and saw a Tweet somewhere that Oolite (a new restaurant in South Beach) was an entirely gluten-free restaurant. I thought […]

The pigs aren’t flying. But maybe because I had bacon in my gluten-free burger at MIA (yes you’re reading that correctly)- The Counter (Miami International Airport)

Leading up to my return to Portland the last couple days I had quite a number of special new gluten-free experiences on Sunday and Monday (Pei Wei Asian Diner and Cafe Prima Pasta). Unknown to me I was about the make it the trifecta and do new gluten-free three days in a row! I was […]

Fast-casual gluten-free Chinese without all the substitutions and blandness- Pei Wei Asian Diner (Aventura)

Last Sunday I was hanging out with my little brother and we had made plans to go to the beach. I was leaving for Portland on Tuesday so I wanted to get a lot of sun (I’m held to a high standard of being tan when I go back home). Unfortunately the summer weather did […]
