Southern Ca gluten-free Restuurants

Recommended Posts

I'm vacationing in the San Diego and LA area at the end of March. Finding a place where I can eat with

my family is always an issue. Does anyone know where I can find a list of gluten-free restaurants in the area?

Or, are there any recomendations of specific places?

Thanks,

Mary Lewis

If you'll be visiting Disneyland/California Adventure and plan to eat in the parks pick places that require reservations and tell them of the Celiac. After being at DisneyWorld I know Disney will work to make your dining experience very pleasant and gluten free. The other places to try would be the turkey leg stands, popcorn stands, fruit, and most of the other places will allow you to buy sides. My daughter likes to eat mashed potatoes and they should allow you to just purchase a side of potatoes. They also allow you to bring in snacks so I always make sure to bring in plenty of things my daughter can eat.

Other great places to eat in So. Cal....In and Out Burger. The burgers are fresh and yummy. Ask for it "protein style" and the burger and toppings come in a lettuce wrap. The fries are made there. The potatoes are peeled and sliced and then fried. There should be no hidden gluten there. The fryers are just french fry fryers (they only serve burgers and fries).

My family loves El Pollo Loco. You might check their website to see if they give any indication as to what seasonings (and possible fillers) might be in the seasoning.

Hope this helps.

I ate at In-n-Out last night. My understanding is that the sauce on the burgers is not gluten free but I could bw wrong. In fact, I'd love to wrong.

Chipotle is gluten free if you get the crispy tacos, but there is risk of CC.

There are tons of good sushi places in socal.

Vietnamese food is a great choice in LA or the San Gabriel valley. I've had very good luck, but I have the advantage that my wife and family can speak to the cooks to check, but much of it seems to be gluten free without modification.

I emailed In-and-Out and they called me within two hours to discuss their menu.

Although gluten "could" be hiding in some sub ingredient she said it didn't appear to be in their sauce. The sauce is pretty much mayo, ketchup and relish. She had checked over the labels and didn't see anything with wheat/gluten listed.

I also asked about the shakes (and man are they yummy) and she said the ice cream used doesn't have gluten/wheat in it.

Overall I was really impressed how fast they got back to me. My daughter loves In and Out and I bought gluten free buns yesterday and she can't wait to go...and have them make it protein style and put it on her bun!

My daughter isn't as sensitive to gluten as some so it really depends on how concerned you are about cc.
