501 on Main

19 Dec

Utah Sweet Onion SliversAfter working up an appetite on Park City’s Alpine Coaster, we decided to head to Main Street in Park City for some window shopping and lunch. A sign caught my eye in the window of 501 on Main that said they had worked with the “Gluten-Free Institute Restaurant Certification Program“. When talking to our waiter, he showed me all of the things that were on that menu that were gluten-free. We started with the Utah Sweet Onion Slivers. These sweet onions were hand-battered with rice flour and then fried in a dedicated gluten-free fryer. They were served with a medium spiced chipotle dipping sauce that was unreal. Seriously. I could have had 5 orders of these onions with the sauce. I then had the turkey melt on gluten-free bread.

Turkey MeltThis had house smoked turkey, swiss and cheddar cheese, tomato and garlic aioli on Udi’s gluten-free bread. It was served with french fries that were fried in their dedicated fryer. This was quite good. As a note, my husband, who has had his share of veggie burgers in his life, stated that the black bean chipotle burger there was the best veggie burger he has ever had by far.

Wahso

13 Dec

For our last night in Utah, we decided to walk around Park City and then get dinner on Historic Main Street. We ended up going to Wahso – An Asian Grille. While my husband and father-in-law were served wontons with a dipping sauce, the waiter brought out potato chips and sliced carrots for me along with my own mustard dipping sauce. The sauce was so good. I then ordered the Tokyo Twist Tar Tar as an appetizer.

It included Wagyu Beef, Hamachi Tuna, Osetra Caviar and Sake Crème Fraîche. The waiter let me hold on to that tasty mustard sauce which came in handy since I got more potato chips with my appetizer. For my main course, I got the Coconut Infused Tofu Pad Thai. When I asked if it was prepared with soy sauce, the waiter explained to me how the only soy sauce that they use is gluten-free. I thought that was pretty impressive.

We really had a great time in Utah. With all of the GF options that we found, I will be sure to return as soon as I can fit in my skinny jeans again.
