Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu

Corner Bakery is a tricky one for us gluten-free folks. So what is so tricky about the Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu? Well, they don’t really have one.

When I went to order at Corner Bakery I asked if I could see their gluten free menu. This is what they handed to me:

The menu is from 2010 and it’s 2014. I hope they update it soon. having that said, here is what they have that is gluten free:

I ordered a cup of the chicken tortilla soup and a chopped salad. Both were good. The one thing I will note is that everything at Corner Bakery comes with a side of bread. I specifically ordered no bread, but I received a piece of bread on top of my salad when it arrived. Make sure you are extremely explicit about this when ordering.

Because Corner Bakery is a bakery with lots of baked goods, there is a high risk for cross contamination here. The location I went to even had staff that admitted this. So, if you are celiac or someone with extreme gluten sensitivity you might want to think twice before eating here.

The other thing about the menu I was unclear on is why the eggs aren’t gluten free but egg whites are. They may use flour in their batter to make the eggs fluffier. I have yet to confirm this. If you are reading this and know, please post in the comments.

Overall, Corner Bakery is not the easiest place to find gluten-free foods but they still have a gluten free menu you can look at and you should be able to grab a salad or soup or egg white dish that will be a good choice.

 

Lemonade Restaurant Gluten Free Menu

Lemonade Restaurant Gluten Free Menu

Lemonade has tons of great gluten free options. If you haven’t been to Lemonade before, they call themselves a “new school cafeteria” because you walk in and they have all their selections out and you slide down the options like you’re in a cafeteria. They also have a really handy key code for all the different allergens. When I used to work in Beverly Hills I went to this place all the time. It’s wonderful!

This is what their website has to say about Lemonade:

Lemonade caters to people looking for a quick lunch or a healthy “grab and go” dinner for the family. The cafés have an emphasis on convenience and affordability, while serving the same fresh, high-quality, and innovative modern cuisine that the brand has become known for.”

Lemonade has a handy little symbol that tells you which items are gluten free. Here are some of my favorite gluten free options from Lemonade:

  • Kale, mushrooms, kumquat vinaigretteLemonade Gluten Free Menu
  • Avocado, cherry tomato, pine nuts, lime
  • New Mexican chili roasted butternut squash, white corn
  • Tandoori chicken, jalapeno, green mango, coconut, tamarind
  • Cauliflower, golden raisins, almonds, curry

Lemonade Restaurants are sprouting up all over LA and are currently in the following locations:

I love Lemonade Restaurants because I always feel so light and healthy after I eat there, not bogged down and gross. If you haven’t tried it, go there today and get in on all their great gluten free options.

Fishbar Gluten Free Menu

The Fishbar Gluten Free menu is fully of great tasting options. Fishbar is one of the best restaurants for seafood in the South Bay in Manhattan Beach. It’s located in the old Sharky’s location but don’t be fooled – they’ve turned it into an epic restaurant with great lunch, dinner, after hours, and even brunch options! There are a lot of items on their menu that are naturally gluten free (Oysters, anyone?) but there are also a lot of items made with flour – especially the breading on some of the fish entrees so make sure you are very clear with your server when you order.

I have a couple different favorite gluten free menu items at Fishbar. Here they are:

  • Oysters: They have different oysters of the day and sell them by the half dozen or dozen. I love oysters and it’s always a treat to start with these.

    Fishbar MB Gluten Free

    Check to make sure the Bloody Mary is gluten free. At the time of this post I can’t recall if it is.

  • Lobster Tacos: Probably my favorite dish in the place. Make sure you order these with corn tortillas because their default tortilla is flour. I once accidentally bit into a flour tortilla one and it was not pretty. So always double check! Also make sure you order the lobster grilled and not fried.
  • Mahi Mahi - I like this with two sides – spinach and broccoli or one veggie and sweet potato fries
  • Shrimp and Scallops on a Skewer: Same sides as the above, but shrimp and scallops on a skewer as the main dish. The original dish has the skewer laced with bacon, but I don’t eat bacon so I get them like this.
  • Dessert: They serve Ice Cream from McConnell’s Ice Creamery here (a local ice cream shop in Manhattan Beach). In fact, the owner of Fishbar also owns McConnell’s. Fun Fact. They don’t really have any gluten free dessert items at Fishbar, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some chocolate sauce should do the trick.

The Chef Jessica at Fishbar is also really nice. I once asked if they could make a coconut crusted mahi mahi (their special that day) gluten free and she did! So awesome of her.
