Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!

Eating GLUTEN FREE in Boston, Massachusetts: Myers & Chang, GF Clam Chowder at Feneuil Marketplace, Cheers Boston Bar, Legal Seafood Restaurant, Cheesecake Factory, AJ’s Bistro in Mystic CT and Chips Family Restaurant in Orange, CT.

From our short stay in Boston, Massachusetts, I ate several excellent GLUTEN FREE meals which were delightful and surprising.

Myers & Chang:

A surprising choice as the Asian fusion restaurant have a separate GLUTEN FREE Menu which outlines which dishes can be made for me.

My Chicken & Broccoli Chow Fun (GLUTEN FREE) of course.

They were very helpful when ordering, confirming my allergies and when it arrived (as it is cooked and served straight away) it was very tasty if a little spicy.

Beautiful GLUTEN FREE Chow Fun noodles.

GLUTEN FREE CLAM CHOWDER (at Feneuil Marketplace)

I was excited to find on the Menu boards of one of the many eateries located in the middle hall of Feneuil Hall, “GLUTEN FREE CHOWDER”. I did get too excited and asked about the bread but they were quick to point out that the bread roll wasn’t GLUTEN FREE so it would be served in a polystyrene cup.




It was a good sized portion with a thick creamy soup and many pieces of soft fish as well as vegetables. It stayed warm in the container and enjoyed this GLUTEN FREE treat.

CHEERS Bar Boston

Yes, after the famous TV Comedy programme (which was last broadcast in 1993) still offers tourists a slice of Americana. On the first floor, this establishment has mocked up the set from the TV series, whilst in the basement, a cavernous bar which remains the inspiration for the “Cheers” programme offers relaxing drinks and light lunches.
A specific GLUTEN FREE Menu is available:

Separate GLUTEN FREE Menu.

Bowl of Boston Baked Beans (GLUTEN FREE).


A well-established chain in the Boston and wider East Coast area of the USA offer several GLUTEN FREE options on their extensive seafood menu.

Main menu at Legal Sea Foods.

More details of menu at Legal Sea Foods.

My GLUTEN FREE Popcorn Shrimp and GLUTEN FREE Fish and Chips with GLUTEN FREE Onions Rings.

The Popcorn Shrimp was a large portion with a very spicy sauce. It was served in a cardboard box and was very crispy. My main course of fish and chips was accompanied with a generous portion of GLUTEN FREE Onion Rings. This was pilled high on the plate and was delicious.


Despite being a national chain across much of the USA, on the Menu there are plenty of “Could be made Gluten Free” markings. It is encouraging that no special Menu is required.

My complete GLUTEN FREE Meal.

For my main course I selected a GLUTEN FREE Burger with swiss cheese and mushrooms, served with a side of GLUTEN FREE French Fries. The bun was a Tapioca Bun which was lightly toasted. I had checked their choices on a website which I found useful.

And of course I had to have Cheesecake: The only GLUTEN FREE one is the Godiva Chocolate Moose Cheesecake.

GLUTEN FREE Cheesecake and GLUTEN FREE Burger & Fries.

It seems a little strange as I know from my research on Chocolates (Godiva are not a brand recommended for allergen suffers) so now it’s in a Cheesecake, does that make it GLUTEN FREE. Well, there is quite a lot of discussion on blogs about this as it does not contain any GLUTEN CONTAINING INGREDIENTS but there is the issue of cross-contamination (as it is stored in a large fridge in close proximity to other cheesecakes and possibly crumbs shared through the Equipment and crockery could cause issues for sensitive individuals). I wolfed it down and loved the flourless base. It has a thick chocolate moose as well as a dollop of cream and a square of Godiva Chocolate. The base is biscuit like but not as solid as a traditional cheesecake. Again, I would visit again and enjoy another one: a GLUTEN FREE Cheesecake.

Cheesecakes with GLUTEN!

Ingredients of the Flourless Godiva Chocolate moose Cheesecake:

Cream (Cream, Mono & Diglycerides, Polysorbate 80, Carrageenan), Cream Cheese (Pasteurized Milk and Cream, Cream Culture, Salt, Xanthan and/or Carob Bean and/or Guar Gums), Semisweet Chocolate (Sugar, Chocolate Processed with Alkali, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa, Butter Oil, Soy Lecithin, Milk, Vanillin an artificial flavor, Natural Flavor), Eggs, Sugar, Milk Chocolate (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Chocolate, Skim Milk, Milk, Butter Oil, Soy Lecithin, Vanillin – an Artificial Flavor, Natural Flavor), Cultured Sour Cream (Cultured Grade A Pasteurized Sour Cream, Non Fat Milk, Enzyme), Chocolate Liquor, Butter, Water, Chocolate Snow Powder (Dextrose, Cocoa Powder, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil), Gelatin, Vanillin (Artificial Flavor).

Again, some online research had suggested that they could cope with food allergies and upon arrival, they confirmed that they could serve any of the pasta dishes with GLUTEN FREE PASTA. After the large starter of “ANTIPASTA ~ Italian meats and cheeses with seasonal vegetables and greens” which was a very large plate of bits to pick at. I enjoyed the “SEA SCALLOPS ~ in a sun dried, tomato, vodka and cream sauce with mushrooms, peas and [GLUTEN FREE] penne). This was a very generous portion with lots of scallops and pasta pieces. The sauce was creamy and delicious.


Chips Family Restaurant with a GLUTEN FREE Menu (on every diner table). A safe and easy option.

Despite the traditional diner being famous for all day breakfasts and pancakes, there is only a limited GLUTEN FREE selection on offer. (French Toast, Egg & Ham Melt sandwich, Pancakes with Eggs or Egg Sandwich: which is great except I am allergic to Egg Yolks!). I opted for the an EGG WHITE and HAM Melt Sandwich which came with a side of fruit! It was a nice snack but a but light for a lunch.

Special GLUTEN FREE Menu at CHIPS. (NB No chips are served!)
