About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Quintana's - Restaurant Review

Another fun and yummy place to eat in St. John's is Quintana's de la Plaza in Churchill Square. It's a Mexican restaurant and the food is fabulous!

This restaurant is very accommodating to gluten-free customers and their menu indicates to tell the server if you require a gluten free dinner. I have never had any problems with requesting gluten free and I have never had cross contamination issues. They have a good size menu and I typically substitute the flour tortilla in a dish with a corn one.

My favourite is the Habanero Burrito with chicken on a corn tortilla. Because the corn tortillas are smaller, I usually get 2 as opposed to the larger flour one. If you are not a Mexican fan - they have some Canadian Fare such as Stirfrys and salads - just be sure to tell the server you need it to be gluten free!

The pricing is fairly average for a St. John's restaurant - but because it's small, I'd recommend reservations for a weekend!
