I live in San Jose, but I don't eat out, except rarely at El Pollo Loco, where the roast chicken & the pinto beans are gluten-free.

There will be some info here.


Next to Monterey, in Pacific Grove, is http://www.centralavenuebakery.com/ , which has gluten-free sandwiches, soups etc - or so I've heard.

I think there's one of these in Gilroy - gluten-free menu, I've heard. http://www.carinos.com/

There is a Carino's Italian Grill in Gilroy which we have eaten at a couple of times. Bring your own bread to enjoy their herb-oil dip. Their Chicken Scaloppini is absolutely delicious! Since they do not carry Gluten-free pasta, ask for their dishes without pasta and substitute roasted potatoes instead (or other veggies listed on Gluten-free menu). I would print their Gluten-free menu and bring it in and show it to them to remind them about Gluten-free. Here is a link to their gluten-free menu:


Their address is: 6805 Camino Arroyo, Gilroy, and the restaurant is right off of Highway 101.

I meant to post when I returned from my trip, but time flew by.

It was my first trip and I was nervous...but things went well.

In San Jose we ate at PF changs. Very very yummy. Even my son(not gluten free) who does not like chinese found something he liked. My DD and I had the singapore noodles and the the buddha's feast. OUr waiter was aware of gluten intolerance and very helpful. He asked the chef if they would make us a special lettuce wrap that was guten free and vegetarian. They did! so yummy. we tipped well

We also ate at Chili's on a very hot day. I had salad, beans, and manderin oranges.

In Gilroy we ate at Johnny Carinos. So yummy too. They were so nice and accomadating. Since my dd and I did not eat the bread they let us have salads instead(I asked). I had the rosemary lemon chicken with spinach. so good. My dd dish had dairy so I did not try it. We tipped well here too. He was a great waiter.

In Monterey we ate at Bubba Gumps. My hubby spilled beer all done my leg. Oh well. But my waitress was great. They did not have a gluten free menu, but she was very aware of gluten intolerance and use to work at pf changs. She went to the kitchen several times for me to insure my food was safe. I had panfried in olive oil and herbs fish with rice. In was really good too. She also got tipped well.

We also ate at pf changs in Monterey. My dd and I had singapore noodles and garlic snap peas. yummy.

At the Monterey Aquarium I had salad and fruit. My daughter also had yogurt.

Hope this is helpful.
