The number of San Diego restaurants now offering gluten-free menu options or entire gluten-free menus is staggering. Chewy, flavorless breads and baked goods be gone. The options here can be so good that you'd never know they're gluten-free.
Gluten-free eaters can dine with very little adjustments made at The Melting Pot. The entrée selections are already gluten-free while the cheese and chocolate fondues can be altered slightly by using gluten-free beer and omitting minor ingredients such as graham crackers. Fondue is social and here, other guests definitely won't feel deprived just because one needs to go gluten-free.
The place to grab gluten-free tacos is Puesto at either the La Jolla or downtown location inside The Headquarters. San Diego is famous for tacos and they'll even make sure your cocktail is gluten-free, too.
And, gluten-free Chinese used to be unheard of. Local favorite Del Mar Rendezvous can use a healthy noodle substitute in their modern Asian dishes to satisfy gluten-free diners.
Chefs across the county are training kitchen and waitstaff regarding the risks of cross-contamination. However, keep in mind that it's always a good idea to emphasize gluten sensitivity to your server to be sure that everyone on the team is aware.
