Pablo's Toc O's Food Truck Review

Although I see an abundance of food trucks all over DC, very few are gluten-free friendly. Cooking in such close corners is certainly not conducive to avoiding cross-contact with wheat, barley, and rye, so the only food trucks I trust are ones that are 100% free from gluten.  While attending the opening festival of the Kennedy Center’s new expansion, I was thrilled to discover a new-to-me food truck that fit the bill with […]

Tamale Co. 2-Go Mexican Street Food Review

Anyone who has followed this blog from its earliest days knows that I am a super fan of the Orlando-based food truck Tamale Co. This 100% gluten-free food truck introduced me to the magic of tamales, and is a staple of any trip back to Orlando now that I live in Washington DC. Since my last visit, they have announced an expansion to not only one, but two brick and mortar locations: […]

El Gringo Baltimore Food Truck Review

One of my favorite things about living in Orlando a few years ago was enjoying the thriving food truck culture. It was fun to follow my favorite trucks to neighborhoods all around the city and I managed to find a handful of trucks that served up reliably gluten-free fare.  Now that I live in Baltimore, my food truck wanderings are more limited, as I have struggled to find gluten-free safe […]

The Corn Factory Review

Living in Orlando spoiled me a bit because their food truck scene has become a staple of the city’s cuisine. In Washington D.C, the scene is a less organized, but there are tons of trucks that call the city home. I have followed The Corn Factory for awhile, and have eagerly awaited checking out their menu of arepas, tacos, and tamales (my favorite foods in the world). Because they jump around […]

Pepa's Arepas Food Truck Review

One of my favorite features of Orlando’s foodie scene is food trucks: mobile gourmet restaurants on wheels that pop up all over the Central Florida region. Found at farmers’ markets, local hotels, and special food truck bazaars that collect dozens in one place, food trucks are easily accessible, but often have limited options for gluten-free diners. Luckily, there are a special few food trucks who work to make sure their […]

Bumblebee Man's Tacos Review and Allergen Menu (Universal Studios: Springfield, USA)

Figuring that I’ve done pretty comprehensive coverage of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, I decided to venture elsewhere in the park for lunch on my third visit. Passing several times through the Simpsons-themed land when going to and from Diagon Alley, a bright black-and-yellow food truck caught my eye and sparked my curiosity. After all, it’s hard not to miss the […]

Peak Season Pops Review

Let’s just face it: Florida is miserable this time of year. No matter how many times we grin and bear it, the inferno-like heat, choking humidity, pesky bugs, unreliable weather patterns, and other staples of a sunshine state summer can get just too much to bear. The perfect (if temporary) antidote? Popsicles.  Orlando is home to many different “pop shops” featuring icy creations that range from the familiar to more […]

Heartsong Cookies Review

It’s not often that I get cookies. Not because they’re particularly hard to source here in Orlando, but the few cookies I’ve tried have been severe disappointments with a few exceptions. The problem with gluten free and dairy free cookies is that they are often small, dry, crumbly, and loaded with sugar and preservatives. After an initial attempt, I had all but given up on the sweet treats until a bakery in Philadelphia […]

Orlando Gluten-free Food Truck Adventures (Featuring Wako Taco and Sweet City Gelato)

After having so much fun at my first Food Truck Bazaar in Sanford last month, I knew I couldn’t stay away from these travelling culinary events for long. After all, being around so many different types of trucks and people made for a fun outing. Wanting to discover more gluten and dairy friendly food trucks, I did some more digging around and question asking to determine what my next food […]
