Weekend trip to Houston and College Station

2016-05-14 21.01.18 (Large)
Had to go back up to College Station for a graduation party, but first had to drop the lady’s dog off at a Vet in Houston who is known for having his TV show on Animal Planet. This was like the most baller Vet I’ve ever seen, each floor was for a different species. It also looked like it was going to rain but we first had to stop and grub at Saltgrass which is always tasty and had some Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries.

Luigis Italian Experience (College Station)

Always drove passed Luigis and never thought twice about them having “rice pasta” or being gluten-free friendly. I checked out their menu randomly and was like RICE PASTA?!!? LETS GO!
First of all walking in to a water fountain and live musicians singing was the most epic experience I’ve seen so far in College Station… this restaurant transports you to Italy with the theme, the music, and the service. Our waitress Taylor was professional, awesome, and very knowledgeable about the entrees, items and any questions about the menu.

Got some Pinot Grigio and lady got sangria and I tasted it and quickly switched to sangria haha, it was so darn good and tasty. Tasted like deserted on an Italian island and all I had was fresh fruit and made some epic drink with it. YUM. Had a shrimp appetizer with some kind of rice and the mussels. Mi lady loved the mussels and the shrimp with rice was like oooooomg I dunno what it was but the sauce on that dish was so good.


I haven’t been able to find veal scallopini anywhere that does it gluten-free usually places pre-deep fry it or something but the chef was able to accommodate me with a proper veal dish with scalloped potatoes and fresh veggies which was some of the best I have had in a long time.
I had no idea this gem was hiding in College Station and now I’m ready to go back and listen to more live music and drink some sangria and try the rice pasta next time! Awesome job Luigi!

Gluten-Free Champions… don’t you love it when people actually don’t marinate everything! These guys can make all your food with gluten-free soy sauce per request and it tastes EPIC. If your near College Station, go here, this place is GOOD. Best fried rice I’ve had in a long time.

I’ll do a review soon of the best gluten-free soy sauces!

A tasting experience at Torchys Taco in College Station

Always saw the line puring out of this place and decided to try it one day. They do offer gluten free items except only problem with me is I’m also allergic to corn. Which is what the tortillas are made out of, so I tried only a few bites and also got some appetizers. The food was cold, way over spiced, and cilantro was on everything. Was all HYPE.
