A Gluten-Free Food Truck & The Monthly Food Truck Event

IMG_0791

The first Friday of every month May through October about 40 food trucks converge outside the Olympic Stadium. Happily one of the trucks, Le point sans g, is 100% gluten-free. This was great for me as my boyfriend could try out a few of the trucks with lots of gluten and I could eat 100% safe. I’m sure a few of the trucks had some gluten-free options, but there could be issues with cross contamination.

I had a chicken poutine that was good but definitely not a poutine in my books. It would be better described as delicious french fries topped with shredded chicken, light gravy, mozzarella, tomatoes and crema. I also got two chocolate cookies which were delicious. The food truck can be found on other days all over the city. You can check out their Facebook page to see where they are. The food is good, safe and not too over priced surprisingly.

I would highly recommend checking this event out, especially if you have a friend/partner that loves food trucks or loves trying lots of different foods at once. There were lots of people but most of the lines were around 10 minutes long except for a few trucks. There are also beer and wine tents if you’re thirsty. It’s really an event for everyone. Even the vegans and celiacs thanks to two separate trucks that cater to each.

Here is an article about the monthly event at the Olympic Stadium:

Gluten-Free in Montreal: Le Point Sans G Gluten-Free Food Truck

IMG_5467

This is the second Summer there is a 100% gluten-free food truck in Montreal (and this is only the second year there have been food trucks in the city). I have been once so far this year and it’s definitely worth a trip out of your way if you are celiac and the food is good enough that your gluten-eating friends will enjoy it too. I am always very happy to be able to grab lunch with no worries about poison! Getting to eat outside in the grass after the long winter is also a welcome bonus.

The two options the day we went were chili on sweet potato fries and bruschetta, both for $8. The portions were a good size and the food was delicious. The date cake wasn’t the best, but was okay. Last summer I tried the arancini, which were great (blogged here). I’m not much of a meat eater but a lot of the gluten-free options in Montreal are vegetarian or vegan so it’s great to an option for the meat eaters.

If you are gluten-free, and even if you’re not, I definitely recommend grabbing lunch at Le Point Sans G.
