The casual Caribbean-themed chain Bahama Breeze now offers a gluten-sensitive menu at all locations. Area outlets are located in Newark (500 Center Blvd., 302-266-7923), Princeton (3535 Rt. 1 S., 609-799-3808), Cherry Hill (2000 Rt. 38, 856-317-8317) and King of Prussia (320 Goddard Blvd., 610-491-9822). Hat tip to reader Alexis, who blogs at Alexis's Gluten Free Adventures and posted a review of her recent meal at a Bahama Breeze restaurant in the Pittsburgh area.

The owner of Ambler's Mi Lah Vegetarian (40 W. Skippack Pike, 215-646-1808) has opened an outpost in Queen Village (615 S. 3rd St., 215-309-5135) serving vegan tapas and dim sum. As with the main location, the dinner and brunch menus at the new spot note which items can be made gluten free.

Reader Corinna let me know that Peking Wok in Mt. Laurel (127 Ark Rd., 856-866-2350) can prepare many items gluten free, including rice noodle dishes and General Tso's Chicken (coated in corn starch). Request that your order be prepared gluten free with clean cookware.

The Taco Truck in Princeton (301 N. Harrison St., 609-580-1384) lists gluten-free items on its menu, though take note that a shared fryer is used for the chips and fried plantains. The mini-chain's first Pennsylvania location is opening at the King of Prussia Mall (350 Mall Blvd.) within the next month or so. reports that the gluten-free-friendly French-Mexican BYOB Paloma, located in South Philly's Bella Vista neighborhood (763 S. 8th St., 215-928-9500), is closing after a 17-year run on December 22.

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is hosting a gluten-free cookie exchange and kids'  support group meeting at its Voorhees facility (1012 Laurel Oak Rd.) on Sun., December 18 from noon to 2 p.m. RSVP via email with the number of attendees (parents and children) and children's ages.

Have a great weekend!
