Traveling is fun, but planning everything can be difficult enough, without having to worry about gluten free options. The good news is that people are becoming more aware of diet restrictions, but it unfortunately remains an added stress to people as they travel.

This restaurant is one of a kind and if you’re into experiencing your food, then this is a must do. Focusing on the natural flavor of foods, they don’t even have a deep fryer! Instead, they use natural oils to enhance the flavors of the food itself. Known for its interesting menu, they don’t hold back when it comes to GF options. They have SO many things to offer and desserts to finish it all off. “We are diligent in offering vegetarian and gluten free options throughout the menu, and local organics are offered as the farmers begin to harvest their crops.”
