I Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many restaurants to pivot in order to keep their doors open. Some owners are double-dipping, operating so-called "ghost kitchens" that have menus different from their better-known parents. These kitchens have pick-up options rather than table service and typically work with food-delivery services for delivery. (You can read more about this trend in the Philadelphia Inquirer.)

In the Philadelphia area, there are a number of such operations. I've compiled a list of some of the ones in the region offering gluten-free options (all of these listings can be found in the Gluten Free Philly app [Apple App Store / Google Play Store], and if you know of others, drop me a line at gfphilly@gmail.com:

  • Elevation Burger (Center City West Philadelphia) - sandwich buns
  • Shai Hummusiya (Center City West Philadelphia) - all menu items are gluten free except for pita bread
  • Pete's Place (Serpico, Center City Philadelphia) - beef and radish soup, soft tofu stew
  • Chopsey Pan Asian Kitchen (Veda, Philadelphia) - sweet corn soup, fried rice
  • Philly Burgers & Shakes (Top Tomato, Center City Philadelphia) - burger buns (request separate preparation)
  • Grilled Cheese Society (Top Tomato, Center City Philadelphia) - grilled cheese sandwiches on gluten-free bread (request separate pan preparation)
  • Agea at the Commons (Walnut Street Cafe, Center City West Philadelphia) - build-your-own bowls and platters
  • Ghost Chicken at the Commons (Walnut Street Cafe, Center City West Philadelphia) - chicken
