Time AND dinner go by quickly sometimes

Yeap, welcome to my Saturday Night dinner. We stopped at a sushi bar on the way home from running errands. We had seen it a few weeks back when we were in the same area – but it wasn’t open. It was so easy to eat gluten free here.

Not all sushi places are easy for the gluten – free eater. But here are the things that made this sushi bar a GF dream:

  • The tobiko (fish roe) was gluten free! (Not all are, as some are “seasoned” which typically means soy sauce and/or wheat starch somewhere.
  • They served real crab – not fake pollock with wheat starch.
  • Many of the “sushi” dishes included vegetarian varieties (like the sweet potato sushi that you see go by in the video).
  • The top conveyer belt had fresh fruit platters as well as fresh veg/salads and edamame.
  • They even served freshly made rice-flour/sesame balls with red bean paste inside.
  • AND the wait staff was perfectly able to answer all of my GF eating questions and needs quickly and easily.

OH YEAH. I LOVE it when eating out WORKS!
