|We went to the Grand Canyon |
while staying in Flagstaff.
During the first night of our visit, we had dinner at the Northern Pines, which is actually located in a hotel. The waitress was very helpful and knew that items were gluten free and which were not. Their menu has a small "gf" symbol next to the items that are gluten free, which is a very useful tool.
We had dinner at the Beaver Street Brewery, where they have a separate gluten free menu for those who are gluten intolerant. The Brewery is located in downtown Flagstaff, which is a cute little area with freight trains that run through the town every half hour or so. The gluten free menu at Beaver Street is similar to the regular menu, though shorter, and contains only those items that are or can be made gluten free. It is always great to have your own menu rather than having to ask lots of questions or page through a big binder of allergen information. I ordered a pizza on gluten free dough and it was pretty good. The gluten free dough was soft, but good so I kept tearing it off and eating it even after I had eaten what I wanted of the pizza.
We went to Mix for breakfast the morning we left. I ordered gluten free pancakes. They have quite an extensive pancake menu and I really wanted to try the carrot cake pancakes, but they aren't able to make those gluten free. I had regular old gluten free pancakes with the raspberry swirl butter. The pancakes weren't great, but my mom ordered an omelette that she loved. I just loved that there was a gluten free option for pretty much everything on the menu.
