So Restaurant Bar, Little Rock, AR -gluten free fine dining

Gluten Free Review
+accommodate gluten free very well
+chocolate sack (lol) can be made gluten free

so

An epic winter time cocktail with lime, apple, cinnamon, rum! yum.

So making the rounds since moving to LR to all the fine dining establishments I think I’ve finally found one I’ve said “I’d come back here next week”. I kept avoiding it because the reviews about over priced, blah blah blah. However this place is on par with some Texas steak houses that rival the beef quality of So’s Filet.

If your in the area, you must try SO. They need a better name though!

Ordered multiple cocktails, Winters Mule, Green Tea, Strawberry Martini all were poured perfectly and had a great ratio. Even though the green tea drink is meant to be a shooter it was still good. Winters Mule is my recommendation to try while it lasts, great balance of flavors. The filet Mignon came out perfect medium rare and the mash potatoes were bone marrow infused and cut with the filet was an amazing pairing choice.

For dessert we got the Cardamon Creme Brulee, sort of small but super appetizing and had an aperitif that leaves your palet feeling like your full and you want nothing else. The Chocolate Sack we got to go and they made it gluten free with the cake/crumbles on the side. Even packed the to-go box with ice to keep it safe from melting. Check this place out if your in the area, so damn good.

 

December & January Catch up- Gluten Free Fish & Chips!

So we had a great Christmas, many presents were opened and many travel plans were accomplished. After Canada it was time to get back to the real life and start enjoying some home time and getting things done. One of those things was making home made gluten free fish and chips. I will link the recipe at the end. I also haven’t had any fish and chips since Disney World at Raglan Road where they’re gluten free so I was pumped. It ended up being excellent! The one thing I will do different next time is make my own tartar sauce, the store bought kind sucks.

Fully custom fries, fish and chips! Delicious.

Gluten Free Burger 21 Review and U.S. Pizza Co

Tried out a new burger joint in Little Rock called Burger 21 + New Gluten Free Pizza Joint. I mean for another burger joint, this place got it all right. The inside is super small, the staff is sometimes eh behind, but the food is on point.

Had the pizza burger last time on a gluten free bun and it melts in your mouth. Also the different sauces is an added amazeballs treat when you can dip your sweep fries in fluffy marshmallow sauce, ok I’ll try it and it turns out to be pretty good for the first few bites.

The pizza burger is excellent, perfectly cooked with a ninja turtle flavor.

Try this spot out, excellent grub spot, usually fast.

U.S. Pizza Company, Maumelle, Arkansas

pizza

This place has been a new favorite for having some of the best gluten free pizza in Little Rock. It’s pretty damn good with excellent flavors and even better crust. The salads not to mention are some of the best I’ve ever tried. Also their homemade creamy Italian is the reason you go.

Disneyland Trip Day 2: Disneyland! Gluten Free Adventures

very time I hit up Disney World I’ve always thought about what Disneyland was like since I forgot what it was like since it’s been so long since I went. I went when I was 12 years old and hardly remember anything.

Got dropped off by our Uber, guess we walk from here (don’t drive, uber!)

I have to say hands down after visiting, Disneyland is way better than Florida’s Magic Kingdom, that is for sure. It’s real small, quaint and charming with a light sense of magic. Now Disney World gives you the magic for sure, Disneyland was a little hard to get into since it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everything California.

Look’s like it’s going to be a busy ass day! (September 12th, 2017)

The entrance isn’t what I remember but it’s just as amazing as could imagine.

Chicago Day 2: Do-Rite Donuts and Museum of Science+Industry

Day two of Chicago was just as dope as day 1, we decided to venture out of our hotel and find some place to grab breakfast. I found on Yelp a super awesome spot called “Do-Rite Donuts” that had gluten free donuts. We walked 0.4 miles and was the smallest NYC looking type of place but sure enough had the most amazing assortment of donuts I’ve ever seen. Also the gluten free ones were yes the best gluten-free donuts I’ve ever had. If not the best gluten free of anything I’ve ever had.

even my favorite organic chocolate milk!

Then we were off to the Museum of Science+Industry which happens to be an old World’s Fair site from 1893 that is still standing and a monument to behold. Didn’t even realize it until I left.

Built in 1893 for the Chicago Worlds Fair, so cool

Chicago Adventures: Flight In | Virgin Hotel | Lincoln Park Zoo

Found an excellent deal on some tickets to Chicago for the weekend so said let’s do this. Only downside was the whole media hype on “crime”, however turned out to be the opposite of the local Chicago scene.

Waiting views out of Memphis, TN.

So I used Hotel Tonight app to find us a hotel for the two nights, usually my deal is book flights way in advance and wait till last minute for hotels. Unless I know there’s a convention going down or something that will make the prices rise. Hotel Tonight is great at finding awesome deals, I found Richard Bransons Hotel Virgin for a decent price and said let’s do it. It’s also a top rated hotel in downtown Chicago.

Was a pretty cool hotel and the check in staff was delightful. The smell of the hotel is like a Westin with a dope smell to it, and the amenities were also epic.

Gluten Free Chic Fil Le Bun

This a late June catch up post to catch myself up at light speed ok, thanks. Each one of these could have been their own post but had to compile some to save some time. June is a wonderful month in Little Rock, very beautiful and a little hot. Not nearly as hot as Texas, the humidity is almost non existent here.

First up I tried the new Chic Fil Le gluten free bun that comes in it’s own wrapper that you probably should toast first at home, was a little chilly. It was decent, but I’d prefer an udi’s bun over that. I do enjoy their grilled chicken nuggets though.

 

Two Rivers Park Bridge

The Two Rivers Park Bridge is a pedestrian and bike bridge connected to Maumelle Park. The bridge is 1,368 feet long. It’s also a biotch to ride your bike over, but it’s a very clean bike ride and adventurous at that! Check it out and click read more. June Adventures!

Paninis & Company, LR. New sandwich shop.

Panini’s & Company menu board. Same as Juice store before.

Tasty Gluten Free Review
+gluten free bread (not sure by who)
+gluten free snacks by Dempsey Bakery

So I was going to hit up the Juice shop here and when I got here they it said Paninis & Company so I’m assuming they closed down and remodeled as P&C, however they still do offer juices, shots of booch, etc so it’s still a healthy place to grab juice!

chillin wooden foresty type vibe

The service the first time was real slow for one sandwich and I was the only customer, however the second time I went with full kitchen staff was SUPER fast, even for the smoothies. The bread they use (not sure if it’s Dempsey’s) but when you order a Panini it’s got that grill press marks on it and makes it so darn good. I’ve tried the Pesto Sandwich (which I did not like) and the something + something which actually was amazing and so darn good with a bag of regular chips.

MN Week Day 3: Breakfast at Birchwood Cafe, Minneapolis, MN

Entrance.

Tasty Gluten Free Review
Location: Minneapolis, MN 55406
Site: birchwoodcafe.com

So wanted to find a new restaurant to try on Vaca in Minnesota and used YELP and the Birchwood Cafe by typing in gluten-free sort by highest rated for brunch. Wanted to also get drunch (haha).

So I’ll with hold my political views since this restaurant is HIGHLY political in every possible way (coming from Texas it’s a culture shock) however, if you have good food I don’t care what you do.

Oh My Gahh, a sweet potato, rice flour, kale, bacon, fried egg waffle, see full ingredients below

From the entrance to the last bite this place is truly a 5 star restaurant and deserves every award in the book, it needs to be on TV, national attention, and all employees brought to light this is a hidden gem. You get your menu at the front, figure out what you want and order with the lovely lady up front. All items are noted with the GF status if they are gluten free. They had the largest selection of unique gluten free items I’ve seen in awhile, now I opted for a bunch of food since I have to try everything that is unique. Started with a Gluten Free Pyro American Pale Ale brew which is tasty! (I then got the “booch” which was SO darn good).
