GLUTEN FREE AT BLUE STAR DINER


Big Star, Blue Star, All Stars. Don't get confused.


As of this week, Big Star Bake House is supplying gluten free Hamburger buns to Blue Star Diner in Bridgeland. An excellent reason for Victoria to go for lunch. With me. 
Shayne Perrin of Dairy Lane fame was on location and it was actually the first time Victoria met with him, after having supplied gluten free baked goods for the past 2 years. Busy people, I am telling you....


We arrived at 11.25 and five minutes later the place was packed solid with the lunch crowd. I counted 44 seats, a perfect size really. 
Your special requests will get the attention they deserve, the staff has time to not only talk to you about options and special requests, but also ensure that you are safe when the food arrives.  Which, if you are Celiac, is comforting to know. 


Victoria ordered a Burger on Blue Star Buns and for myself I got a Chicken Club. on a GF bun as well.
 No need to review it, other than it is excellent. All of it. The meat, the fries and of course the buns from Big Star. Big portions!
You can read a better written review of the food on Vincci's Blog here:



Very similar to Dairy Lane, they proudly serve local ingredients and food from local suppliers where possible. large photographs of farmers and their products are on the walls. I fully expect a portrait of Rich and Liam on their wall soon.  Or of the best gluten free Hamburger Buns at least....

PLENTY OF GF OPTIONS.


GREAT LOOKING PLACE


THE BURGER ON BIG STAR BUNS. GREAT FRIES!


 CHICKEN CLUB. EXCELLENT PESTO AIOLI

Thanks for the link, Peter! Lovely photos! So happy to know that there's another gluten-free option for people with celiac or gluten intolerance in the city :)
