Side note about Tortilla Coast: Apparently there’s a woman named Hilary who goes to Tortilla Coast and she has celiacs. Brandon (my favorite manager) says she’s been great about educating the restaurant staff about Celiacs, where gluten is found, contamination, etc. Thank you, thank you Hilary! This is why it’s SO important that all of us celiacs inform and explain clearly to restaurants what are needs are. I know we feel like we’re being a major pain, but the more restaurants know, the better! I’ve found that places are so helpful and want to cater to our needs but it’s imperative these places know just how serious we are about our disease and that we’re not just on some version of the low carb diet…definitely a pet peeve of mine!
So again, thank you Hilary!
