News & Notes: September 12, 2014

Noodles & Co. has opened a location in Moorestown (1540 Nixon Dr., 856-780-1987). Gluten-free fusilli, pad Thai and several salads are options. My family and I just ate there last weekend and were told that the rice noodles are prepared in advance in separate water.

Most of the menu at Cambodian restaurant Daly Angkor in Bryn Mawr (845A W. Lancaster Ave., 484-380-2642) is gluten free and the kitchen staff takes care to avoid any cross contact. (Thanks to Shari S. for the tip.)

In Phoenixville, New American restaurant Marly's BYO (106 Bridge St., 610-933-7471) can accommodate gluten-free requests.

Evol Foods' newest line of "street tacos" include three gluten-free varieties: Sweet Potato, Black Bean & Goat Cheese (sweet potatoes, black beans, goat cheese, roasted corn, cilantro and jalapeƱos on corn tortillas and served with a pouch of salsa verde); Uncured Bacon, Potato & Poblano Pepper (uncured bacon, roasted potatoes, poblano peppers, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, cilantro, jalapeƱos and cheddar cheese on corn tortillas and served with a pouch of chipotle crema); and Shredded Chicken & Carmelized Onion (guajillo chicken, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions and roasted corn on corn tortillas served with a pouch of ancho crema). The street tacos are on sale this week at Target for $3.50 per two-pack.

Pasta Flyer, the fast-casual gluten-free pasta concept that raised money through Kickstarter this summer, is coming to Philadelphia in early October. In addition to several pasta pop-up events in Old City and University City, Old City's Fork will host a collaboration dinner on October 2 with Mark Ladner of Pasta Flyer (and Manhattan's Del Posto) and Eli Kulp of Fork. Early seatings will be staggered between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m and later ones between 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Call the restaurant at 215-625-9425 for reservations.

Main Line Health is sponsoring three gluten-free events this month. On September 22, the Chester County Library in Exton will host a discussion group where gluten-free cooking and nutrition tips will be presented, and later that day the Celiac Center at Paoli Hospital presents a seminar on "mindful eating." On September 30, there will be a gluten-free cooking demo at Wegmans in Malvern, where Dr. Keith Laskin, the Director of Paoli's Celiac Center, will host a Q-and-A session after the demo. Reservations are recommended for all three events.

Have a great weekend!
