I got glutened here :-( I feel somewhat responsible. I explained to the waitress I had celiac and she explained that the kitchen is not a dedicated gluten free kitchen and there may be a chance of cross contamination w the flour in the air. I was there for business, so my choices to eat were limited. I took the chance. Unfortunately, I got very sick.
There are probably many Gf items here given the nature of the food but the staff did not seem very knowledgable about their ingredients and the woman who waited on me said something in Spanish about my request for gluten free to the other girl behind the counter and they both laughed. I don't know what she said but I heard "gluten free" in the comment. It was really rude. It may be ok for gluten sensitive, but I feel like there is a lot of opportunity for cross contamination for a celiac...and the people who work there seemed insensitive. Maybe it was just that one time...I don't know.
NOT FOR CELIACS. Politely asked for gluten free options and the chef kicked us the entire time we ate. It's been one hour and the stomach pain has started. Not celiac friendly. The owner/chef has an anger issue, check the yelp reviews too.
I was informed by the chef that the Portuguese Seafood Stew is not gluten free and that it's a "typo" on the menu. It's not specific to this restaurant it's also listed as gluten free on their website. None of their wait staff was aware that it wasn't gluten free and at least one of their other chefs was unaware. The issue is their stock is not gluten free and neither is the chourico they use.
They have no intention of changing their menu (or the ingredients they use) and they haven't even bothered informing their staff, it makes me wonder what exactly is safe to eat from their gluten free option. I would be very cautious eating here if you have CD or a gluten allergy.
This IS NOT a gluten free chain. I don't know why it's even on this website. How come we can't get this removed from the list. As a moderate/severe celiac disease person, I'm extremely disappointed. And it frustrates me that more of you aren't either.
