Although you’d never know it from the photos (or the flavor), this month all of our picks are gluten-free. There are quite a few places in the FM area that offer delicious gluten-free dishes, among other modifications like dairy-free, nut-free, vegan and more! If you’re interested in learning more about the different dining options offered around the area, stay tuned for a future issue of Fargo Monthly, where we’ll take a look at that and much more. For now, enjoy these gluten-free selections!
1. Gluten-Free Mac ‘N Cheese
Gluten-free doesn’t mean avoiding comfort foods. Head to Mahana Fresh to try their new Happy MAC! This gluten-free mac ‘n cheese is cheesy and can be enjoyed by itself or served as the perfect base for any veggies and protein! Build your gluten-free mac ‘n cheese dream!
2. Flyin’ East
If you’re looking for something savory, crunchy and with a ton of flavor, head to Brew Bird. The Flyin’ East chicken sandwich is crispy, dipped in a gochujang glaze, layered with napa slaw, topped with watermelon radish and house aioli and served with seasoned waffle fries (yes, these are gluten-free too!). Make sure to ask for a gluten-free bun and you’re set!
3. Strawberry Coconut Mojito Kombucha
If you’re not visiting Wild Terra for the drinks, you could be going just for the vibes, and if you’re up for it—both! Next time you head there, try their Strawberry Coconut Mojito Kombucha. This tap drink is crisp and fizzy, with a start of tartness at first sip then followed by a fruity-coconut sweetness after. The taste will remind you of being about 30 degrees warmer than you are now, so head over soon!
Whether you’re craving a cheesy takeout-type of slice or a unique and bold bite, Blaze Pizza has it! They have tons of options when it comes to pies already designed to perfection, but here is a build-your-own creation featuring gluten-free crust (which is also vegan!), garlic pesto sauce, shredded mozzarella and goat cheese, with layers of spinach, green bell peppers, banana peppers, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, roasted garlic and fresh basil, and finally drizzled in olive oil and a balsamic glaze and sprinkled with oregano! Build your dreamiest gluten-free masterpiece!
