Goodies Giveaway: Dining Out Philly

It's been three amazing years since I started Gluten Free Philly. I offer my heartiest thanks to everyone who has come along for the ride. Your feedback, compliments and tips have been invaluable.

To help me celebrate the blog's third birthday, six gluten-free-friendly Philadelphia restaurants and bakeries are offering you, dear readers and followers, the presents - six gift certificates as part of my "Dining Out Philly" giveaway. There will be six different winners in all (limit one gift certificate per winner).

Participating restaurants are the [NEWLY ADDED] Food For All Cafe and Market (7127 Germantown Ave., 267-297-7122) offering a $30 gift certificate, THE QUICK FIXX [GF pasta] (1511 South St., 267-273-1066), The Tomato Bistro [GF pizza] (102 Rector St., 215-483-2233), Zavino [GF pizza] (112 S. 13th St., 215-732-2400) - each of which is furnishing a $25 gift certificate - and Pure Tacos [all GF] (coming this Spring to 1935 Chestnut St.), where one winner can enjoy lunch every day for a week, a $50 value (two tacos and one drink per day for five days).

The all-gluten free Toté Bakery (1024 S. 9th St., 215-551-5511) and Sweet Freedom Bakery (1424 South St., 215-545-1899) are also offering $25 gift certificates.

To enter up to three different ways, follow the instructions below. Be sure to let me know of your top three choices; although winners will be randomly selected I will try to accommodate specific requests if possible.

Good luck!

    We are so excited to try any and all of the gluten free options you listed! Our daughter (12) is Gluten sensitive and now the whole family tries to eat gluten free. Many of the alternatives on the market contain less than healthy ingredients so for the most part we simply omit bread and baked good from our diet. It would be wonderful to try some tasty, healthy options! Thank you gluten free philly for providing such a wonderful resource!!

  73. Top three choices are Sweet Freedom, Tote, and Pure Tacos. Thanks so much for your great blog. I've been a celiac for many years and didn't really make much effort to replace all the carbs I had to cut. Last summer my 8 year old son was diagnosed and I'm so glad the world has finally started making edible choices for us! Now if we could just get the pricing in line, life would be great. Keep up the good work! Jane B.
