I travel a lot, and I know how frustrating it can be to find good gluten free options in airports. Having done some research prior to a recent trip to Philadelphia, I knew that there was a Legal Sea Foods in the Philadelphia airport. I had never eaten there before, but I knew from reading other blogs that Legal Sea Foods is leading the way when it comes to gluten free dining. In fact, they first started offering a gluten free menu back in 2005.
As soon as I sat down, the waitress immediately asked me if I had any food allergies. She was very helpful to point out the wide variety of gluten free options which are clearly labeled on the menu. Since Legal Sea Foods is known for their fresh seafood, I decided to stick with one of their many gluten free seafood options.
For an appetizer, I ordered the regular Crispy Montauk Calamari. This was my first time ever eating gluten free calamari, and it was indeed crispy and delicious!
For an entree, I chose the crabmeat on a gluten free bun with french fries and jasmine rice instead of cole slaw. The crabmeat was coming out on all sides of the gluten free bun, and every bite was fresh and delicious.
Both times my food was brought out, I was assured by a member of the kitchen staff that my order was indeed gluten free and all necessary precautions had been made in the kitchen. With the exception of eating at a 100% gluten free restaurant, I’ve never felt more confident that my food was not going to make me sick.
If you have a Legal Sea Foods near you, I recommend you immediately check them out! The food is very tasty and you can eat worry free.
