Excellent meal where almost the entire menu is gluten free. So much so- the things WITH gluten are marked. For sure make a reservation

Such a fun spot with great food! Separate GF fryer, and lots of options overall. Plus great drinks! The fried plantains, ensalada picada, and tatanachos are all great picks!

Lots of GF options on the menu. The menu is actually marked for things that contain gluten because the majority do not. The tortilla chips are made in a dedicated fryer. The only thing I didn’t ask about was if tortillas are made on a shared surface. I got tacos with corn tortillas and I noticed they were browned and my daughter got a quesadilla with a flour tortilla and that’s when I realized I should have asked about that. Everything was delicious.

EDITED TO ADD: I have eaten at all the locations around DC and always had a positive experience. Yesterday, I asked about the tortillas and the flour tortillas are not made in house but the corn are. Our server said he would note celiac on the order and the kitchen would make every effort to avoid cross contamination by cleaning the prep area and cooking surfaces prior to making my order.

Most of the menu is gluten free, and clearly marks items that contain gluten. The staff also informed me of one item where they could not guarantee safety because of where the ingredients came from. I had lots of options and felt fine after!

Had an incredible meal and experience at Mi Vida! Items containing gluten are marked on the menu and there are only a handful of items that are NOT gf! Tortilla chips are celiac safe and so are some typically non-GF items like empanadas and taquitos, etc which is fun. The service was so amazing and dishes come out very quickly, don’t anticipate a drawn out meal! Enjoyed everything we ate including drinks and would absolutely visit again when in DC.

Mi Vida is a go-to for us! In addition to gluten, I have a couple other allergies and the management is so careful. I have always felt extremely safe eating here.

It’s very rare that I can have almost everything on the menu, and everything is really delicious. Highly recommend if you’re in DC!
