Boulder has a lot of coffee shops, and it is hard to distinguish yourself in an environment in which seemingly every block has a place that sells coffee, and good coffee at that. One way to stand out, though, is to make your own food, and this is what Brewing Market has done with the introduction of their new hummus and falafel wraps. This wouldn’t necessarily be of note to us but for the fact that one of these wraps is gluten-free; and, as an added bonus, the one wrap that is gluten-free also happens to be vegan. So, in addition to good coffee and a broad variety of teas, including a great hand-brewed chai, you can now get gluten-free and vegan wraps when you stop by Brewing Market.
When searching for new gluten-free eating opportunities in and around Boulder, we take a special satisfaction in finding GF options in surprising places, and a restaurant specifically dedicated to pasta certainly counts as a surprising place. It was therefore with pleasure and excitement that we learned of Twisted Noodle in Longmont, a pasta-centric restaurant with plenty of gluten-free options. Fittingly, these options include gluten-free pasta dishes, but there is also gluten-free bread and garlic bread, as well a gluten-free soup and dessert. The restaurant has actually been open since last September, but our first chance to visit came last week, and we are happy to report that Twisted Noodle is both delicious and economical.
