Never had Peruvian food... it was DELICIOUS!! the guy who took my order at the front had a list of ingredients. Most items are GF! They were able to hold the onions and sauce on the chicken saltado since i am sensitive to onions too. Tasty!! The purple drink was nice.

So many choices for gluten free options! The only things that are not gluten free from the main menu options are the black beans and the soup. The chicken is delicious and is free of all major allergens. Lots of sides including fun choices like yuca and plantains for the adventurous and fries for the more conventional. Everything was fresh, hot, and tasty!

This place feels really safe for Celiac. Almost everything on the menu is GF, and it is all clearly marked. The way they serve, I did not see opportunity for cross contact. This is such a nice option for picking up a whole chicken and a couple sides for our family for dinner.

Allergens are clearly marked at the beginning of the ordering line and readily available online. The majority of items are gluten-free making cross-contamination risk lower. The food is super tasty! I always look forward to my trips to Alpaca!

They have a list of what allergens are present in each dish, only things with gluten are beans and soup, some of the specials contain gluten but you may be able to order it without. The rotisserie chicken is delicious and there are plenty of sides to choose from. The fryer is not used to cook anything containing gluten. Since there are few items that do contain gluten you should be fairly safe. It doesn’t seem like their is much risk for cross contamination.
