Before going gluten-free on December 3, 09, I ate out ALLLLL the time! But every time I tried to eat at my usual places, I got glutened (ick!). So now that I'm starting to venture out again, I'm finding some good places that have dedicated gluten-free menu items. And I thought since Orlando is a highly visited area, maybe some of you all might have be able to use the info I'm finding - as well as share your finds.

So I'm going to start posting places as I come across them. Hope you enjoy them too!

--- The Drunken Monkey ----

A small, eclectic coffee bar/restaurant that specializes in homemade soups. Super yummy gluten-free soups change daily. They usually have around 6 soups... and today 5 of the 6 are gluten-free! They also have three categories of soups: "Vegan, Vegetarian and Meat" They are not your average soups... every one I've ever tried has been SUPER tasty and I've NEVER been glutened here. And they have great coffee and chai...

For an example of the types of soups they have, here are the current selections. Gluten Free has the *

Vegan: *Spicy Bean

*Curried Leek

Vegetarian: *Loaded Baked Potato

*Creamy Tomato Basil

Meat: *Old Fashioned Vegetable Bee

Cream of Shrimp (the only one that's NOT gluten-free)

(I'm actually sitting on one of the mismatched, comfy sofas using their free wi-fi right now! There are also tables.. it's like a little cafe...And I can say that the Loaded Baked Potato soup with a little real bacon on top is ROCKIN'!!)


Remember the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld? Well, this soup must've been what the Nazi's was like -- only the Drunken Monkey staff is really nice!

So if you go, tell 'em Noi sent you. I'm here a lot now. See you soon!

----- Pizza Fusion -----

Yes!! Good gluten-free pizza!! Yeay! I go here like once a week now. It's great food and I've never had any gluten problems here. The menus are VERY easy to navigate and tell what is gluten-free. They detail how they prepare the food to be truly gluten free. They take lots of precautions and I always know I'm safe when eating here.

They also have gluten-free beer (and the liquor store next door sells 6 packs of it!), decent gluten-free brownies, and they can make some appetizers (like the flat bread dippers) gluten free too.

It's located on Sand Lake Road, so it's convenient to the attractions areas.. So if you're visiting and crave some good pizza, check it out!

This is what they say about being gluten free on their website: pizza fusion (dot) com


Pizza Fusion was created in the best interest of the individual and the environment. When originally designing the menu, Vaughan Lazar and Michael Gordon, founders of Pizza Fusion, wanted everyone to enjoy the good taste of their delicious food. So they did their research and sought out tasty alternatives that'd allow individuals with food allergies, selective diets and digestive intolerances to indulge at Pizza Fusion. The end result was a menu to be enjoyed by all that has made us especially popular amongst our vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose intolerant friends alike.

Gluten-Free Pizza

We cater to many customers with gluten intolerance with our gluten-free crust. We use a mixture of garbanzo bean, fava bean and rice flour to make our gluten-free pizza crust, and our sauce and cheese are gluten-free as well. Our gluten-free friends are always happy to know that they can order almost any topping, excluding only barbeque sauce and sausage. Our gluten-free pizza is one of the best on the market. Its great taste is a reflection of our dedication to using quality ingredients and spending the time and energy to perfect our products.

We also serve a variety of salads and melt-in-your-mouth gluten-free brownies to accompany your gluten-free pizza, as well as offer a gluten-free beer made from Sorghum instead of barley. There are many options at Pizza Fusion that fit the special dietary needs of the gluten-free community.

* Our Gluten-Free crust contains the following ingredients: Bean Flour, Rice Flour, Tapioca Flour and Starch, Xantham Gum, Salt, Yeast, Egg, Cider Vinegar, Sugar, Canola Oil, Calcium Propionate.

Oh! They just got gluten free BBQ sauce last month! So now you can get my current fave: BBQ Chicken Pizza.

Oh! That reminds me: on football game days, they have a special - if you buy two large pizzas (big enough for 2-3 adults) you get a third free. So I currently have a whole BBQ Chicken Pizza in my fridge for lunches all this week. Yum!!
