Where & What I’m Eating
Here’s what I’ve been noshing on that I think you should try!
Dungeness Crab Risotto at Scoma’s San Francisco -
San Francisco is certainly the place to eat Dungeness Crab, and Scoma’s has been a favorite of my family for years. They get the crab risotto incredibly right – a creamy, hearty rice full of peas, mushrooms and lots of sweet crab. Gluten Free options are clearly marked on the menu – give the Lobster Bisque a try too.
Coconut Cupcakes & Eclairs from Miglet’s Gluten Free Bakery -
I thought nothing was going to top Miglet’s Coconut Cupcakes (Red Velvet is a close second) – then I tried their delicious eclairs. Something crazy is going on in the back of that bakery, I swear. The eclairs are vanilla bean cream-filled perfection, and the cupcakes are moist, light & delicious. They’ve got pies, doughnuts, cookies & some hard to find groceries – and are mindful about egg, nut & dairy allergies too.
Shrimp Remoulade at Ruth’s Chris Steak House –
Some restaurants become chains because they know what they’re doing – and I think that’s the case with Ruth’s Chris. Well edited wine lists, servers & bartenders that are serious about service, and – wait for it – a lengthy Gluten Free menu. Certainly the steaks are amazing – but the Shrimp Remoulade appetizer has been making me happy lately, gorgous jumbo shrimp perfectly cooked and presented with a tangy remoulade that’s completely Gluten Free.
