More Gluten Free
Gluten-free? Latest place I saw where they’re serious about this was at the University of San Diego. At USD (where I went recently), everybody did something GF in the big dining hall (“Pavilion Dining”):
*Tapenade, the Mediterranean-type place, always has GF salmon & steak for lunch and grilled chicken breast with brown rice for dinner;
*at Sea Salt Grill, the burger joint, they have hamburgers and cheeseburgers sans buns;
*the Mex outlet, Maiz, does GF tortillas if you ask;
*Nori Now, the sushi outlet, will do plain sushi with no soy or eel sauce;
*at Lemon Grass, the popular Vietnamese eatery, all curry items are GF;
*and Bert’s Bistro, a “nut and peanut-free dining location,” says they offer “numerous” gluten-free dishes.
I'm starting to understand what a pain in the you-know-what it must be to search out places if you have this problem. I'll keep an eye out from now on. Probably good for the rest of us to eat GF as much as possible, too.
