Brit In Fl!

Hi,

I am from the UK, but will be visiting Kissimmee,FL for Xmas, doing all the tourist stuff! :)

Last time I came to the States, I was an undiagnosed Coeliac (Celiac in US?).

Do any locals in the Kissimme area have any tips for eating out a supermarket shopping in the area?

Any pointers greatly appreciated!

Many thanks :)

Dave

I am going there in Feb. I found out there is a Whole foods market one exit north of Orlando in Winter Park. Also there should be a Outback steakhouse, Carabbas, and PF Changs in the area. They all have gluten free menus. Whole Foods has a big deli/restaurant in there store. Their items are labeled clearly with all ingredients.

My parents just bought a house and its in Kissimee... We shopped at Publix.. which they didnt seem to have much.. so we went to super Walmart the next day.. They had tons of stuff, clearly marked.

Where my parents house is... 3 miles from Disney... There is a Carrabbas, Outback, Red Lobster (not too sure about them though) all on one corner. I had no problem getting any type of gluten free food.

I did, however, bring my own pancake mix down, a loaf of bread, and breadcrumbs for an amazing chicken parm dinner.

good luck! and have fun!

Thanks for your responses!

I will check these places out.

I do remember a Publix from our last visit.

out on SR192 I think (the main east-west road?)

We are staying in Indian Ridge which I gather is just across the road from where we stayed

last time in Indian Ridge Oaks.

Thanks again,

Dave

Thank you... we rent it out when we arent there. It is so central to all of Disney. We shopped the Publix like I said.. but I didnt find too much gluten free, except the obvious fresh meat, fruit and veggies. The produce section was rather limited too.. I would recommend trying the Walmart if you can and find the time with all you are doing there.

Have a fun trip!
