Thanks to one of our Fearless GF Foodies - thank you, Jill - an excellent Asian Fusion restaurant has come to our attention! The Meet-Up date is still a month away but we could not wait to tell you about Tropical Island. Each and every server can identify which items are gluten-free, those that can be adapted and those that are off limits. I love boundaries, don't you!
http://www.thetropicalisland.ca does not do them nearly enough gluten-free justice, so I will follow up with an email with scanned attachments of the hand-notated menu. What am I looking forward to the most? Deep-fried coconut milk!!
There is but one chef - the owner - and he 'gets' gluten free. And because there is but one chef, he will process orders by tables of ten, so the first to RSVP will indeed be first served. Limitless parking off Shelbourne, in lot behind restaurant. Enter from front or back. Accessible.
We won't be offended if you strike out ahead with your Boy or Girl Friday! Be sure to take this map with you! http://www.theceliacscene.com/map21-Vancouver_Island-_VICTORIA-UVic-Cadboro.html Lunch: 11:30 - 2:30 Wed-Mon Closed Tuesdays
Dinner: Sun, Mon Wed, Thurs 5-9 Fri-Sat 5-10
