Yesterday my roommates and I went to the parks, we weren't planning on it (so I was wearing shorts and my legs were freezing) and first we went to Disney's California Adventures to ride Tower of Terror and to get dinner.
Because we weren't planning on going I didn't grab my camera and I took a photo of my meal with my phone but it is too dark to see anything. So use your imagination as I describe what I got.
Paradise Pier is the main area with dining and one of my roommates works there and she wanted the food so we decided to go there. The place we decided on was the Boardwalk Pasta & Pizza. As you can imagine, a place with pasta and pizza in the title would not be allergy friendly and as we went in there were a total of three stations (minus drinks and cashier): pizza, pasta, and salads.
Two of my roommates got the pizza (a cheese pizza and the vegetarian pizza) while my other roommate got pasta (don't know which one). I had to get a salad and there was only one I could get out of total of three. There was a Chicken Cesear salad, a Boardwalk salad, and an Italian salad. The only one that was gluten free was the Italian salad. My roommate suggested the Boardwalk salad but it had blue cheese* so I went with the Italian.
It had mixed greens with ham, salami, and mozerella slices on the outside with fresh mozerella balls tossed in the salad, there were red bell peppers, a chile, kalamata olives and a simple vinigrette. The salad only priced at $7 or so dollars (without tax) and there was a lot of food there so you do get your money's worth. The only complaint I have is that it was really salty because there were so many olives.
So there was only one thing in the entire place that I could have but it was good and priced okay (for Disney). Honestly, I would only go back, though, if I was with someone and they wanted to go there.
*Blue cheese: when blue cheese was first created the mold used was bread mold. Of course this a time when there was only gluten breads so the mold can possibly contain some gluten properties. I don't actually know how scientifically true this is, but I don't want to risk being sick. Also I don't like blue cheese.
More coming soon.
