Recently, an interested patron reached out to us at Cueva Bar with the question posted as the title of this blog.
Here's my response:
Hi, Gemma. Thank you for reaching out with your inquiry about our gluten free items. We have dedicated kitchen tools to cook the gluten free items. Per example, we bake all goods in the same convection oven, but on different racks and different baking sheets. For the tortillas we use a separate grill when cooking regular tortillas. We typically only cook corn tortillas. We only have flour tortillas once in a while and as I've mentioned, we cook them separately. We don't have a fryer so anything pan fried is fried on separate pans if there are both gluten or gluten free items on any given special menu. Hope this helps. Best, Chef Oz.
What are your thoughts about gluten free food? What's the knowledge you have come across, and will you mind sharing in the comments?
Cueva Bar offers a fusion tapas inspired menu with plenty of omnivore, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options.
Our happy hour is from Tuesday to Saturday from 4pm to 6pm. Happy hour offerings are $5 tapas, $5 wines, $5 sangria, and $4 craft beer on tap.
We're located in the eclectic University Heights neighborhood.
