Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason Review

As soon as I knew I was making a return trip to London, I was excited for another opportunity to enjoy a gluten-free afternoon tea. On my first visit back in February, I had a swoon-worthy experience at Claridge’s in Mayfair (see my review) that introduced me to the treasured tradition of afternoon tea and made for one of my most memorable experiences during the trip.  After researching several establishments […]

Gluten-Free Tesco Sandwich Review

During my holiday abroad to London back in February, I soaked in every sight and sound of the city, as it was my first trip abroad. While the historic buildings, incredible museums, and London’s general buzz were memorable, a large part of how I explored and experienced the city was through the variety of foods and dining experiences I had, spanning humble fast-casual fare to a lavish, unforgettable high tea.  Of […]

Gluten-Free Afternoon Tea at Claridge's Review

I’m not entirely sure whether being gluten-free has made me a foodie (by being hyperaware of what I eat), or if I was a foodie who developed a gluten-intolerance. Either way, if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that food is a central part of how I explore and experience the world.  In fact, when building my London itinerary, I made sure to prioritize not only the sights I wanted to […]

Friedmans Review (Dinner)

Knowing that a work trip would bring me to New York City for several days, I decided to make the most of the opportunity and built in time for exploring the city a day before my official duties started.  Of course if I can make it happen, seeing a Broadway or off-Broadway show is a must do for any New York City visit, and this trip was no different. With tickets […]

The Red Bandana Bakery Review

If there’s one thing the world needs, it’s more dedicated gluten-free bakeries. These magical cafes are places where sweet and savory treats are in abundance and fear can be left at the doorstep.  The latest gluten-free bakery to pop up in the DC region is The Red Bandana Bakery in Bethesda, MD. While not a newcomer by any means (they have been a Bethesda farmer’s market staple for years), their brick and mortar location […]

Baker's Crust Bread Market Review

In passing through Norfolk, Virginia last week, I sought out a restaurant that had lots of gluten and dairy-free options and high recommendations on Find Me Gluten Free. After searching through the results, Baker’s Crust stood out with both rave reviews and many options. Baker’s Crust seems to be a counterintuitive name for a gluten-free friendly restaurant, but if you look beyond the name, their options for gluten-free dining are pretty […]

Lilit Cafe Review

On my last D.C. trip of 2016, I had less than 24 hours to check out new restaurants or visit old favorites. I decided to use the time to trek up to Bethesda (via the red line Metro) to finally pay a visit to a gluten-free friendly restaurant that I have only heard good things about for years. A little off the beaten path (especially on foot), Lilit Cafe proved […]

Atwater's Review

Because a sandwich was no longer an option, I opted for a bowl of the vegan gazpacho, minus croutons on top. The soup was a delicious blend of veggies, in a tomato-based broth. I loved how the chopped vegetables, including cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, were fresh and bursting with flavor. The soup was seasoned with garlic and black pepper, which shone through with every spoonful. Although it was my backup […]

Betsy's Bakery Review

Despite the abundance of gluten-free breads out there from large companies, I love the feeling of discovery when I find a locally made bread from a small company. These small bakeries are often supported by other small businesses, which creates an awesome chain of supporting the community by the simple act of buying a loaf of bread. One such small business ripple effect starts here in Baltimore with Eddie’s Market. […]

Toasted Restaurant Review and Gluten-free Meetup Recap

Toasted, as its name might suggest, specializes in grilled cheese and burgers prepared perfectly and are easily adapted to accommodate special diets. While their duel menu categories are deceptively simple, their offerings are far from the traditional grilled cheese or hamburger you’re used to or have grown up with. Though Toasted has been on my “to-do” list for a while now, I finally had the opportunity to check them out thanks to […]
