Gluten-free food trucks: a handy list
This week, Restaurant Alma chef Bryan Morcom was the target of a firestorm of angry and confused comments from customers with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, after he responded to the question "which culinary trend do you wish would die?" in an interview with the Pioneer Press by saying, "gluten-free is the one that kills me. I'm sympathetic to dietary restrictions, but everything in moderation. We get five or six people coming in each night asking for gluten free."
Restaurant Alma owner Alex Roberts later posted a lengthy defense and explanation of Morcom's comments adding that "while [Morcom] completely respects all customers' dietary needs, he is at times frustrated by diners that demand a gluten-free meal then later order a gluten dessert or knowingly eat bread containing gluten."
It's a relevant conversation no matter what side you approach it from, but it seemed particularly fitting that it all took place around the same time that the fantastic Twitter-based Twin Cities food truck news resource TC Street Food contacted us with a very handy list of some of the food trucks around town who are serving up gluten-free options.
Here are the trucks and their gluten-free dishes:
