First of all, apologies for my tardiness in this post. Between working full time plus my commute plus my continuing education courses plus my part time housewife duties, I have fallen slightly behind on discussing the grilled perfection that Fuego Mundo has achieved.
At a food blogger's event, the owners of Fuego Mundo allowed us to step into their mindset of the 90% gluten free menu. When I first heard about this gluten free restaurant, I was skeptical. As a lover of all things wheat, I thought to myself how could a meal without gluten be delicious? I stand delightfully surprised. The dynamic duo of a South American woman married to an Israeli (pretty kosher) man has created an amazing menu of woodfire grilled meats as well as health conscious sides such as fried or -- get this -- BAKED plantains as well as rice or quinoa all combine with other veggies to make a delicious meal that feels like you're over-indulging but really is quite figure friendly.
Plantain chips and salsa
Baked and fried plantains, quinoa, rice, veggie stir fry, and beef and chicken kabobs
Gluten free carrot cake (delicious!)
I was so pleasantly surprised by the delicious flavors of the meats and sides as well as the desserts. On the tables at Fuego Mundo, there is a hot sauce that is just the perfect blend of flavor and heat that adds an amazing flavor to everything in the restaurant.
If you're skeptical like I was, you owe it to yourself to try it out. As we were leaving, my hubby ordered the lamb chops...which were just delicious! Check it out and decide for yourself but I almost guarantee that the flavors and heartiness of your meal will make you -- at least momentarily -- forget about gluten!
