Yo’ Mama’s Gluten Free

My husband is in sales, so is always getting to eat out at different places.  He is always looking for some great gluten free places to take us to.  This one he gets to eat at a lot since it is close to his work.  He takes clients here pretty regularly.

We got to experience Yo’ Mama’s for the first time this week.  It was over the top delicious.  My kids could eat fried anything they wanted….fish, shrimp, french fries, or chicken, they also had shrimp and grits.   One had a hamburger with a gluten free bun, one had a waffle with fried chicken, one had fried shrimp and broccoli, and one had fried chicken and french fries.   Oh my goodness!  So yummy!

The whole restaurant is not gluten free, you can get regular buns and regular waffles, but they take extreme care to be sure your food remains gluten free.

You can go here to check out their website.  Let me know what you think!  It is worth the trip downtown, you won’t be disappointed.  They also offer Saturday breakfast/brunch on the 2nd and last Saturdays of each month.

Here is a peek of what we ate:

Lunch at Roti’s in D.C.

Oh my goodness…totally wish there was a restaurant like this in Birmingham!  If you are ever in Washington, D.C., and I believe they said they have one in Chicago, IL. you must try Roti’s. It is Mediterranean food.  It kind of reminded me of Chipotle.   All their ingredients are totally fresh and gluten free.  They had a gluten free flatbread that was so delicious!  My 9 year old had hers eaten and buying a second one before I could finish mine.  They are not a gluten free restaurant because they sell regular flatbreads and other foods that contain gluten.   One person prepared our food from start to finish with clean gloves and we could choose anything they had out.  I love when we get experiences like this!  If you are in the area, you must try!

California Pizza Kitchen Review

 

One of the nights that we were without power from the tornado, we decided to try out California Pizza Kitchen’s Gluten Free Menu.  It was totally amazing to say the least!  We totally enjoyed every minute of our experience.  All of the staff was knowledgeable about the gluten free menu from the hostess to the waiter.  It made me feel completely at ease about letting my daughter eat the food from there.  When we entered, I immediately asked about the gluten free menu.  The hostess was very helpful and understood the seriousness of not eating ANY gluten.  She showed me around the menu and how to find all their gluten free options.
Once we were seated, I immediately told the waiter about needing to be gluten free and to be sure that they were extra careful because even a crumb will make my daughter sick.  He made me feel comfortable right away because he knew what I was talking about.  He didn’t look at me like he had no idea what in the world I was talking about.  He was confident that they would be sure not to contaminate any of the gluten free food.  He told me that the chef’s had special training and instruction and when preparing a gluten free order they were using every precaution.  Before even ordering, I LOVED my experience!
We ordered a gluten free salad to start.  It was good.  Pretty simple, but it tasted good.  Then my husband got the chipotle gluten free pizza and my daughter got the Hawaiian gluten free pizza.  She was in gluten free heaven!  Totally enjoyed the pizza.  It was about the size of a large dinner plate.  The pizza was thin crust (they all are) and crispy.  It was amazing.  Very good pizza.   We had to go out to eat again last night due to the power and my daughter asked to go to California Pizza Kitchen again.  LOL!
We will definitely be visiting again there soon.  One of our favorite places to eat gluten free at this point, that is for sure!  I have heard that they are testing this gluten free pizza only in the Alabama area.  Please try it and let them know what you think so they will carry it EVERYWHERE!
***This was our experience with this restaurant.  As always, I would love to hear your experiences as well.  Remember that unless you are eating at a totally gluten free restaurant, you always run the risk of contamination.  There is always the chance that you may get an employee that is not as familiar with the gluten free diet.  If you are uncomfortable, be sure to ask to speak with a manager.  It seems that the Birmingham, Galleria location has trained their staff well!  Thanks for the great gluten free experience!
