Celiac friendly?



As a celiac person, I found the options in Harrison Hot Springs to be pretty limited. So when someone in one of my celiac groups on Facebook recommended Black Forest to me I thought we'd give it a shot. I'm the only one in my group who is celiac. They had an adequate kids menu so that's always a bonus. They said they could make any of their schnitzels gluten free and our waiter seemed fairly knowledgable about the menu. We went for the early bird (before 6:00) menu which was limited but more reasonably priced. I had the Vienna schnitzel but paid a surcharge for GF and a surcharge to have chicken instead of pork. It came with some "pan fried" potatoes, steamed vegetables, and some sort of cabbage slaw. The Vienna was just a basic preparation though and was fairly tasteless. The potatoes were okay but I always think of pan fried potatoes as sort of crispy and these were a bit soggy and very heavily flavoured of onions. The steamed veggies were BARELY cooked. And honestly, I'd rather have them on the undercooked side than the over cooked side but they were basically raw and warmed up a tiny bit. The slaw was NOT GOOD. It was like a cabbage jam almost. Very sweet and slimy. Not my palate at all. Others in my party also had the Vienna schnitzel and the Bavarian meatloaf. We all ordered from the early bird menu and I'm glad we only paid in the $15 range for our meals rather than the $25 range from the regular menu as I would have felt pretty put off by paying that much for what we got. The service was great, the food was adequate and I didn't get sick. But I can't say I'd go back again. To be fair, German food has never been a favourite of mine and if you wanted to order off the regular menu, there were lots of other options that looked like they might be more flavourful, but I probably won't give it another chance.
