Shane’s Rib Shack GF Menu

March 10, 2010

The news for Celiac and GF diners in Northern VA and DC just keeps getting better and better! A coworker of mine told me last night that Shane’s Rib Shack, with locations in Alexandria and Laurel MD, now has a dedicated GF menu. WOOHOO! I have always gone to Rockland’s in Arlington to get my BBQ fix, but I am really excited to have a new option!! So make sure you all visit Shane’s and ask for their GF options, let’s keep the demand high!

GET IN MY BELLY!

PF Changs Offers New GF Options!

March 9, 2010

I’m sure you all, if you live in any kind of urban area like I do, go to PF Chang’s a lot. It is my go to place when I am required to go out to eat with a friend or family member that is visiting for several reasons:

1) I have never ever been glutened there
2) They have a dedicated gluten free menu and have GF soy sauce…YES.
3) I never have to explain my requirements to them. They just know because they’ve been trained. Thank god.

So yes, I do go there a lot. However, there is only one or two things on the menu that I will consistently order, and none of the options are things I would have ordered pre-gluten free days. SIGH. It is reasonably easy to burn out on a restaurant if you can only order one or two things!
However, I am pleased to let you know that PF Chang’s is now offering FIVE (count em, FIVE) new beef based GF dishes! YAY! Click the picture below for details. THANK YOU PF CHANG’S, for giving me back Beef with Broccoli πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Choupi Crepes

March 3, 2010

Today you can find my third article for NBC Washington posted here about Choupi Crepes, a smaller-than-small crepe cart located in Rosslyn that has recently reopened and is serving delicious (glutenous) crepes.

Of course, for my gluten challenged friends, I highly recommend my Gluten Free Crepe recipe that you would be crazy not to try this weekend. Try it out on your gluten loving friends and see if they can tell the difference! Probably not. And then you become the genius friend who can make crepes. You might have to open your own cart in Rosslyn!

I feel incredibly blessed to have this opportunity to write about some of what DC’s dining out scene has to offer. πŸ™‚ If anyone has any favorite spots that they feel should be shared with the rest of the metro area, I would love to hear from you. Where do you eat out in DC?
