As I continue on my gluten free journey, I am starting to notice a very disturbing trend when it comes how people are cooking gluten free food. Restaurants all over the world are jumping on the gluten free bandwagon to try and accommodate those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Its great that there are a growing number of GF supporters out there but I have to wonder how many of these so called “supporters” are serving gluten free food for the right reasons.
Your Gluten-Free Food… SUCKS!
Trying to find a tasty gluten free food option is not an easy task. Most GF birds will tell you that it is best to prepare your own dishes to avoid any risk of getting terribly ill. I agree with this testament. However, it is also easier said than done.
There are nights where you may not have the time to cook and need to find another solution like my delicious gluten free Greek burger. Before going gluten-free, this was not too difficult. Now, its almost like I am clueless when it comes to knowing where to get a quality gluten-free meal. I emphasize quality here. To tell the truth….I am getting sick and tired (GF pun intended) of ordering gluten-free meals and almost vomiting it back onto the table. Your gluten-free meal sucks!
Where do I even start?
My wife and I live in an area that is well known for its restaurants. We are pizza lovers at heart but can no longer enjoy a nice, hot, cheesy New York slice…Yummmmm. So if we are craving pizza we revert to places that advertise “Gluten-Free Pizza” A few months ago you would not even see this on a pizza place’s menu. Now, almost everywhere you look you will see big signs outside trying to advertise their new Gluten Free Pizza.
Last night we decided to order a gluten-free pie from a well known pizza restaurant in our area. Mind you when I say pie I am referring to the 8 inch personal pan bullshit these restaurants have the gall to charge 14 bucks for. Their “Now Serving Gluten-Free Pizza” billboard was new so we figured we would give it a shot.
I could not believe how disgusting this was. It was the saddest attempt at cooking pizza I have ever seen. It was insulting. The fact that I just paid almost $15 for this garbage bothered me incredibly.
I am typically not one to write negative reviews about a company or food establishment. I am not in the business of spotlighting faults. I love to write positive reviews which you can check out in my Gluten Free Food Reviews section.
I still haven’t decided what to do about this particular restaurant.
What do you think I should do? Advice is greatly appreciated!
The reason I am so infuriated by this is because it is so obvious that restaurants are trying to make a quick buck by promoting their shitty gluten free food.
Hey Restaurant Owners….
Either you are going to do it or your not. Stop making a complete mockery of the GF community by slapping together a bunch of weird ingredients to create your signature “gluten-free meal.” It sucks! So to be completely honest I would rather see you have NO gluten free food options as opposed to the poison you are selling to us. There HAS to be a better way. Chefs and cooks are usually pretty proud of their dish after it comes out of the oven. So I ask you pseudo-gluten free food cooks: Are you proud of what you are creating or are you just cooking something to shut these annoying gluten free people up? My uneducated guess would suggest the latter.
