News & Notes: October 14, 2016

The latest Philly restaurant from Michael Schulson is Harp & Crown (1525 Sansom St., 215-330-2800), a New American bistro next door to his pan-Asian Sampan in Midtown Village. Most of the menu, which will rotate seasonally, can be made gluten free; items that can't are noted. 1911 hard cider currently is available on draft.

In the Pennsport section of Philadelphia, The Wild Burrito (2015 E. Moyamensing Ave., 215-336-9453) offers most options in a gluten-free format, from chips and avocado fries to quesadillas and tacos (made with corn tortillas). No gluten goes into the fryer. A sister shop is in Wildwood Crest (6300 New Jersey Ave., 609-523-9453).

Souderton family-style restaurant Franconia Heritage (508 Harleysville Pike - Unit A, 215-721-4400) has a extensive gluten-free menu that includes pancakes and crepes for breakfast and chicken parmesan and pasta for lunch and dinner. The kitchen maintains a dedicated fryer.

Allora in Marlton (892 Rt. 73 N., 856-596-6882) offers gluten-free pasta. Call ahead to request that the pasta be prepared in a clean pot and fresh water.

Also in Marlton, ShopRite (307 Rt. 70, 856-983-7370) will be hosting its annual Gluten-Free Festival on Saturday, October 29. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature samples from more than three dozen companies.

Saffron Road has expanded its line of microwaveable gluten-free meals with Asian-themed fish bowls. The four new meals are:
  • Sesame Ginger Salmon with White Rice: Wild-caught salmon filet in a sesame ginger sauce with crunchy vegetables on a bed of rice
  • Lemongrass Basil Fish with Rice Noodles: Wild caught Alaskan pollock paired with a lemongrass and basil sauce atop crunchy veggies and rice noodles
  • Thai Red Curry Fish with Rice Noodles: A medium spiced red curry seasons a pollock filet in a bowl filled with rice noodles and veggies

Have a great weekend!
