We recently visited My Fit Foods in Hermosa Beach, and we're pleasantly surprised. All of their meals come precooked, and are stored in a refrigerator. 


Best Bunless Burger (tm)

Burgers are a popular restaurant food. However, when eating gluten-free, the burger experience completely changes because the second main ingredient, the bun, is missing. An increasing number of restaurants are offering bunless burgers. This growing trend led Food Test Network to wonder, who has the best lettuce wrap, bunless burger?

To answer this question, we evaluated lettuce wrap burgers at numerous restaurants – and in particular, at popular chains. Read the evaluation.


Sauced BBQ & Spirits - Livermore CA

We discovered Sauced in downtown Livermore. Their menu identifies items that are gluten-free or contain nuts. Most of their meats and sauces are g-f, and they are delicious. The restaurant was very crowded on the Sunday evening of Memorial Day Weekend. 


Torpedo Sushi - Oakland CA

Torpedo is "a new sushi concept". The restaurant claims that all the food (except 1 dessert) are gluten-free - per the email appended below. However, it was disconcerting that the soy sauce packets on the condiments counter are not g-f. The food is creative. The location is narrow with seating on stools along the walls. I think many people get torpedoes to go.


Patti's Perfect Pantry

Patti's Perfect Pantry is moving from Gilroy CA just north to Morgan Hill CA. Their 100% G-F restaurant and bakery has excellent food. We especially appreciated Patti's choice of G-F breads.
