There are not many restaurants where I honestly feel totally safe eating since I have celiac, but great Mexican joints with house-made corn tortillas always feel welcoming to me. My current favorite in town is Los Gorditos. You may have seen a picture or two on the ol’ Instagram feed recently. That would be me, eating lunch. I can’t get enough!
This is a order-at-the-counter style joint and a lot of people working nearby call ahead for takeout orders. The staff is super friendly and happy to answer questions. Bonus: You can see the chefs cooking everything so you know its clean and safe.
What makes me feel extra confident in my decision to dine here are the three separate menus: Vegan, Vegetarian and Meat. If they’re conscious of avoiding cross contamination between meat and vegan dishes, they’re also going to be addressing gluten CC issues without me even having to ask. Woot! Its always nice to just order something without having to talk about my disease.
