Austin was the first out of state trip I had taken since going gluten free, so this post is almost a year overdue and my descriptions may be a bit vague. But I have to say, we found quite a few gluten free friendly spots while we were there. Probably the neatest part was the plethora of places that actually had real corn tortillas that didn't have any added gluten in them, these seems to be a hard find outside of Texas.

My trip to Boise was particularly business heavy so I didn't get to do much exploring since I was either working or exhausted from working. On the first morning, I did get to see this fabulous sunrise though!
So I'd just like to say...Portland is THE MOST GLUTEN FREE FRIENDLY CITY I have been to so far. I found so many restaurants and places to go, that I really can't wait to come back here to try more of them! I stayed in the Cultural District and was able to easily explore up to the Pearl District, but I know are a ton of places I missed out on because they were outside of easy walking distance. So here are the spots that I was able to make it to..
Sadly, I don't have any pictures of this little stop because these places were actually just pit stops on the way down to Portland. But worth noting none-the-less and I'm sure I'll be back at both these spots within the next year.
This spot was a recommendation of a friend of mine and we called ahead to ask if they could accommodate me, which they could! The staff was friendly and helpful and there were plenty of items off their regular menu that I could choose from with some small changes. I got the Cowgirl Salad without the fried polenta cubes and the potato spinach cake. Which was a bit sad since those both looked so yummy. I may need to try making fried polenta cubes at home some day...
I've stopped here once before and it's a great little shop! They carry a really large selection of gluten free products and a lot of things that I've never seen in Whole Foods or other natural markets. I picked up a bunch of items on this trip, but a couple of the new things I picked up where some Gluten Free candies for halloween and individual serving packets of tamari that I can take with me when I travel.
