For the last couple weeks I traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida and DC for work. As I mentioned in my gluten free frustrations post, traveling can be difficult. I did my homework- identified gluten-free friendly restaurants using my GF Find Me app. I also used Urbanspoon.com- great website! In St. Petersburg, I highly recommend The Moon Under Water!!! This place offers a great Indian cuisine– and, a fabulous gluten free menu!!!!!!! Yummy! It was such a great place, I went their twice- curry and then, Tikka Masala. Great atmosphere and great experience!
However, I can’t say the same for lunch on my final day. I ate at an organic cafe and had a GF wrap with salad. I don’t know if it was food poisoning or if I got glutened, but I got horribly sick a couple hours after I ate. Yuck!
I had a great time in DC! I was fortunate to have dinner with my closest college friends. I didn’t get glutened in DC, that’s for sure!
But, I did get glutened last week while on my date with my hubby. Sip Wine Tasting and Tapas Restaurant in Alpharetta is a great restaurant, except… they don’t factor in cross-contamination. They advertise for a gluten free selection, and I must admit, it was a nice selection. However, they have an open kitchen flor plan, and they was no consideration to cross contamination. So, although they offer a variety of gluten free selections, the food is prepared in the same space, grills, and fryers as all the other menu items. Boo! 😦 Needless to say, I was not feeling well that night.
This weekend is Superbowl Sunday!!! Woohoo!!!! I’m going to have a little party with some friends. It’ll be a gluten free party- so stay tuned for the recipes! I do plan on making some gluten free chicken wings!!!!!!
