Gluten Free In Seattle, WA: Summer Sushi & Local Foods

The beautiful summer days we've been starting to have in Seattle have sure enticed me out to more local restaurants, but that also mean's I've gotten very distracted from updating this blog!  Summer may continue to be a bit os sparse time for posts here, but I'll try to do better!

So in the mean time, here are a couple quick notes on some new gluten free friendly spots I've tried in Seattle.

Gluten Free In Seattle, Washington: Paella in Capitol Hill

Another stop on my Seattle Summer Gluten Free Challenge to myself was Tidbit Bistro in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. We were lucky enough to snag a Groupon to Tidbit and therefore decided to splurge on the Paella for our dinner! This was our first time enjoying this dish and it was quite tasty, although next time I think we'll opt for the vegetarian version because as it turns out we're not really big fans of this much shellfish, however the chorizo was delicious.

Gluten Free In Seattle, Washington: Veggie Power

Thrive has been on my list for a while now to try out and I included it in my Seattle Summer Gluten Free Challenge to myself!

It was even better than I had hoped it would be!  The whole place is gluten and dairy free, so the only item I kept my eyes out for was some of that pesky soy (which in small amounts doesn't seem to bother me too much, but I'll avoid it if I can). The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful too! To make things even better, they've got a small are in the cafe that sells different kinds of snacks, bulk grains, and a huge selection of raw cookbooks.  I picked up some raw chocolate covered cherries and cinnamon glazed walnuts.

Gluten Free In Seattle, Washington: Fish & Chips!

I took a first stab at my Seattle Summer Gluten Free Challenge and it was wonderful!

We went out on a nice sunny and warm Friday night to 50 North over by University Village. Their menu is all labeled with which options are gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan.  It also specifically notes that most dishes are able to be made gluten, dairy, or egg free.

Now, why I really chose this place as the first stop on my challenge was because they offer gluten free fish and chips!  It's one of my absolute favorite meals and it's incredibly hard to find gluten free. Oh and those fries were awesome.

Seattle Summer Gluten Free Challenge

When I do travel, I'm really forced to put myself out there and try new places to eat out.  But when I'm home in Seattle, I can be a creature of habit.  Going to the same places over and over and over and over.

However, I've been slowly developing a list of places I want to try because I've heard wonderful things about their gluten free offerings. And well, I just love trying new foods!
