Gluten-free pitas at Pita Pit

Pita Pit logoI recently got to eat my first pita in about 7 years!

I was driving around my neighbourhood when I noticed a big sign in front of my local Pita Pit saying they had gluten-free pitas. I was so excited I had to tell my husband, and we made a date to go have lunch there the following Saturday. I was in heaven!

Swiss Chalet’s Allergen Guide Wins Points with Me

Swiss Chalet is a restaurant staple

Swiss Chalet is a restaurant staple

Since being diagnosed with a gluten intollerance, Swiss Chalet has become my go-to restuarant. It’s familiar, it’s comfortable, and I know I can always get something to eat there. And who doesn’t love chicken?

(Also, the chalet sauce has super, magic healing abilities, but that’s another story.)

When ordering from their site tonight, I discovered a link at the bottom to an allergen guide. Really? They have one? Oh yes, AND it has wheat/gluten listed on it. Here’s a summary of what you can have:

Starters

Garden Salad, Greek Salad.
