Tell me about your relationship with gluten..
I suspected that gluten was causing my GI issues, so I cut it out about 3 months ago, and really notice a difference.
Why should gluten free travellers visit your town?
Southern food is not known to be very gluten free-friendly, but there are a handful of restaurants that offer separate gluten free menus.
Tell me something fun about your town..
The Nashville music scene is great, and there are tons of festivals and fun things to do!
Where is your favourite place to eat out in your town and why?
Amerigo’s has a really great gluten free menu, the staff are very knowledgeable about gluten free food, and identify everything they bring to the table as the gluten free version.
- Cantina Laredo: Clearly marks items on their menu that are gluten free. Their corn tortilla chips are not fried with anything else, so they’re gluten free too!!
- Taziki’s: A great little Greek/Mediterranean place that has a separate gluten free menu. The Lamb Feast is my favorite!
- For gluten free pizza: MAFIAoZA’s and Mellow Mushroom. Porta Via does the best gluten free pizza I’ve had yet!
- For gluten free pancakes: The Pfunky Griddle, and supposedly the famous Pancake Pantry has gluten free pancakes, but I can’t find it listed on their menu. This place always has lines out the door and around the corner, but supposedly it’s an “institution”. I haven’t been yet.
- Merchants: we ate downstairs at the Bistro. So many things on their menu are gluten free and they have a version marked with the safe options. I had the Sweet Tea Pork Loin with Pimento Grits…SO good!
Do you live in Nashville or have you travelled there? Where is your favourite place to eat gluten free?
