Going out to eat can be complicated for those with gluten allergies or sensitivities. Sure, plain old meat and vegetables are available on most menus, but does the restaurant know how to avoid cross-contamination with glutenous products? And does it still feel like a meal without carbs in the form of bread, pizza crust, or croutons?
Luckily for gluten avoiders, Philly’s restaurants have answered the call. Burger and sandwich shops offer gluten-free bread. Pizza places are baking gluten-free crust and bakeries are focusing on allergen-free sweets and breads. Restaurants serving some South and Central American and Asian cuisines often meet gluten-free needs too, thanks to their use of corn- and rice-based products.
