Who are you and where are you?
My name is Pier, and I live south of Los Angeles, in the beautiful beach city of Redondo Beach.
Tell me about your relationship with gluten..
I was diagnosed with allergies to wheat and corn 13 years ago! Â You couldn’t order anything “gluten free” from a menu and it wasn’t much understood by the general public. Â I even got some eyes rolls like “c’mon, who’s allergic to WHEAT?” Â Luckily, people’s awareness has changed dramatically, making it much easier for those who need to, to live happily gluten-free.
Why should gluten free travellers visit your town?
Not only does my town have a beautiful beach, a great strand to walk on or bike ride, fantastic shopping, and friendly people, but there are plenty of places to eat gluten-free. Â And more are popping up all the time!
Tell me something fun about your town..
On a sunny day, you can often see dolphins jumping in the waves from the beach.
Where is your favourite place to eat out in your town and why?
There are a few, but my favorite is getting pizza delivery from Fresh Brothers! Â They offer GF pizza with a big selection of toppings, fresh salads, and even gluten-free desserts. Â Finally I can have my own slice (or many slices) of heaven delivered straight to my door!
Another great place in Redondo Beach is the Wildflower Cafe. Â They have super yummy offerings for breakfast and lunch, and offer rice bread as gluten-free alternative in breakfasts and sandwiches. Â The setting is very pretty and relaxing as well. They are right on the Pacific Coast Highway in south Redondo Beach.
