About Me

I have celiac. I miss all the things I used to eat but am happy to see more and more restaurants accommodating gluten free patrons.

    If I could give zero stars I would. The place is FILTHY. Whoever the "dishwasher" is needs to be FIRED. All utensils were dirty. The waiter came out with tea and tea cups. The tea cups had crusted food inside of them. The teapot had what appeared to be a CAT HAIR stuck on it. The chopsticks are REUSED. Plastic is POROUS and the chopsticks have teeth marks on them. Hepatitis anyone? The egg drop soup was cold and you can tell they didn't reheat it properly. Soup needs to be maintained at a proper temperature to prevent bacterial growth. It wasn't fresh and probably yesterday's backwash soup. The food was terrible. Rice noodles looked and tasted old like yesterday's leftovers. It was disgusting. The health department would shut the place down if they saw what I saw. The cloth napkins had very short rodent type hair on them. All these signs point to one thing.... Poor quality control, poor management (more like NO management) and unsafe food handling and little to no dish-ware/utensil cleansing. I will never go back.

    This place is soooooo good. They seem to know about the gluten free diet. UPDATE 12/29/14 Owner/staff are extremely knowledgeable about the gluten free diet. Order with confidence. The gf naan is amazing.

    The guy who owns the place doesn't take a gluten allergy seriously. Maybe I should use their restroom after I eat what they claim is gluten free. He said their spring rolls are gluten free. I don't think so!!!!!!💩

  • Westchester Burger Company

    78 New York 303, West Nyack, NY 10994

    UPDATE: If you LOVE buffalo wings or any kind of wings..... Gluten free! They do not deep fry them they grill them! They actually taste better this way! They have gluten free French fries! Staff is knowledgeable of wheat allergy and the manager/owner is on point with wheat allergy patrons. The burger was great but the roll sort of crumbled. That is to be expected with Gluten Free rolls. They offer two gluten free bottled beers (omission and red bridge). They offer a gluten free chocolate cake so they have everything covered for your visit! I will be a frequent patron to this place. Very clean and nice bar! I love this place!!!!!!! Very kid friendly too!

    Ok I really wanted to give this a positive review, but I can't. This place is a celiac/wheat allergy NIGHTMARE. The entire set up is similar to Chipotle minus the flavor. This place has a severe risk of cross contamination. When you walk in their is a line set up just like Chipotle where you start your order and as you move down the line you can add food items to whatever you originally ordered. Here is the problem. The very first server handles ALL the tortillas and fried tortilla baskets. They are made from wheat flour. This guy handles everything with the same gloves and touches the food with the same gloves. The fried tortilla baskets are brittle and can flake off into the different food options. Obviously this wouldn't be a problem for someone that doesn't have a food allergy. The next problem I observed was the guacamole. It's obviously made in gray Rubbermaid bins. My guacamole had a piece of that plastic bin in it that probably broke off from whatever type of mixer they used. Overall the flavors were all BLAND and lacked salt. I'll stick to my gluten free burrito bowls from Chipotle.... They can't compete.

    Gluten free pizza is cook perfectly. Thin crust is crispy and the cheese is excellent. I think they add a touch of Parmesan cheese. The sauce is excellent. I will be going here from now on!

    Oh My God the best gluten free cakes! I haven't anything else there yet but will update as I try everything. Looks like a really nice place to sit down for a delicious cup of coffee and Gluten free pastry!

    Hands down the best Sushi anywhere. They are very aware of the wheat allergy and can make a sushi roll gluten free my omitting gluten ingredients. Added plus is that they are the friendliest staff I have ever met. They treat you like family. I love this place.

    Really yummy gluten free pizza and the price isn't over the top for a personal pizza size. Pizza is cooked in individual one time use aluminum pans. They also offer gluten free pasta.

    I found the staff to be very helpful with gluten free options. For a chain restaurant it's pretty darn good!

    Perfect service from extremely friendly staff. Once you let them know about your allergy they make certain that you have nothing to worry about. The food was amazing!

    3 1/2 stars? Really? Wtf. This place is amazing. The gluten free burrito bowl is addicting. If a place is good give them the five stars that they deserve. FIVE STARS!!!!!!!!!

  • Laraia's Cheese Shop

    5 starsDecember 14, 2013

    5 Seeger Drive, Nanuet, NY 10954

    Closed due to patrons buying at the big corporation grocery stores like Fairway at nanuet mall. This is what happens to small mom and pop businesses when their is no sense of loyalty by the customers. I will miss that place. The one on one customer service is irreplaceable.

  • Villagio Pizza Cafe

    5 starsDecember 14, 2013

    719 West Nyack Road, West Nyack, NY 10994

    I give five stars because the pizza was very good and the owner was friendly as all heck. The gluten free pizzas are way over priced though. I know their point of view when it comes to operating a business but bring the price down a little. Also the gluten free pizza frozen discs are the same ones all pizza places use. Great place and friendly service. Try it out I highly recommend it.

    Ugh.... Don't even bother. Pizza was terrible and the staff whom I believe are the owners are grumpy. No service with a smile.

    Fries are sort of ok. Cross contamination with buns and Burgers are possible they put the buns on the same surface.

  • Lanterna Tuscan Bistro

    The absolute BEST Italian restaurant in Rockland both for gluten free and regular. The owner is so nice and he really wants to make sure you enjoy your experience. Their gluten free pasta is amazing and they can pretty much accommodate any dish on the menu to be gluten free!
