Hello. Welcome to the 2nd Love Food club Blog.
My name is Jen and as someone who is gluten intolerant herself, I know eating out can be hard or makes you feel fussy. So when I spotted that La Tasca have now labelled their menu gluten free I was delighted and went to try it out last night.
The menu had clear gluten free labelling, whether you wanted to try a main paella dish or the tapas. I opted for trying the tapas.
There appeared to be less gluten free choice amongst the meat and seafood dishes, but don’t let this put you off. The staff were aware of what was gluten free and when I asked if the pollo marbella dish could be made gluten free the chef was happy to oblige.
The food was delicious and if you haven‘t tried the Spanish omelette then I heartily recommend it. Although this is a naturally gluten free dish, with potato as the main ingredient, the flavour was delicious! Overall, I was impressed with the food, the labelled GF menu (although they do state they cannot guarantee the dishes are free from contamination due to using a kitchen with gluten containing foods) and the chef’s help to make it a better experience for gluten free diners.
Hopefully with more people going along, they’ll see the value of offering gluten free options and can be encouraged to expand their menu further, especially for the meat and seafood dishes!
