A while ago I received a takeout menu in my mail from a place called Viva Burrito and I thought it would definitely be a place I'd like to try, but it's a further away than I want to walk so I haven't been. Well now that my takeout lunch options are limited, I pulled out the menu. I knew that a mexican restaurant must have corn tortillas right? YES! Despite the almost 100 degree weather, I made the long (not really) trek over to 66 Staniford Street to order up a grilled chicken tostado with black beans. It was worth it, spicy and delicious and gluten-free. Their menu mostly consists of flour wrapped burritos, fajitas, quesadillas and so forth but they also offer corn tortilla tostados as well as traditional tacos. I will definitely be visiting them again next time I'm ordering out for lunch. I try very hard to stock up on groceries and avoid ordering out but sometimes it's just necessary. It's funny, I don't go shopping because I don't have a lot of money but then I always end up ordering out because I don't want to eat the mish-mash of leftovers that I've brought. I need to get into the habit of just spending the money on the good stuff! I'm learning the lessons, slowly but surely.
I also found the Gluten Free Checklist the other day. I have the grocery guide but this website is even better for finding mainstream gluten free products. More on that tomorrow!
