Tastings - Gluten-Free Friendly

I went to the Grapevine, Texas location of Tastings on Main Street this past week and had a phenomenal time. Of course, all wine is gluten free and they had several gluten-free items on the menu. They have a range of cheeses, salads and aged meats. Also, they were very accommodating and made sure that my salad was safe from croutons or crusts of bread.

I would suggest brining your own crackers if you would like some to go with your cheese.

Tandoor Chef - Tikka Masala

I came across this tasty frozen dinner at Whole Foods - a Chicken Tikka Masala by Tandoor Chef. While it doesn't have any ingredients listed as containing gluten it is made in a facility where wheat is processed. This was delicious, but it doesn't have any rice in it to soak up the sauce.

So, after you eat the chicken chunks out you basically have tomato yogurt soup. Which was good, but could've used something to sop it up like some tasty brown rice. They recommend eating it with Naan, which, of course, is not an option for us.
