Moe’s Southwestern Grill: Another Gluten-Free Fast Food Option

Whenever I am travelling for a hockey tournament  I always find it difficult to find gluten-free fast food options.  This past weekend, at a tournament in Rochester New York,  I discovered Moe’s Southwestern Grill:  http://www.moes.com/about/   Moe’s has an eat in (nothing fancy) or take out option, and every meal is served with a complimentary serving of tortilla chips and salsa.

Moe’s reminded me of Subway restaurants where you get to choose the toppings on your sub or salad.  The procedure was the same as Subway as well; you choose what you want your ingredients in: a tortilla wrap for burritos, a bowl for burrito bowls, or a crispy bowl shaped tortilla shell for salads.  Of course, only the burrito  bowls are gluten-free, but it was great to have an option.

I love the ingredients in a burrito, and was thrilled to custom make one for myself.  I chose chicken, beans, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, black olives, grilled mushrooms and grilled sweet peppers, with their new chimichurri (Argentinian recipe with cilantro flavor) sauce. I don’t think the grilled mushrooms and peppers are typical in a burrito, but the combination was delicious.

My only complaint is that there are no Moe’s locations here in Canada!
