Rosa Mexicano!

In general, Mexican cuisine tends to be quite good for those of us on gluten free diets as many of their traditional dishes are made with a corn base instead of a wheat one.

Rosa Mexicano, an upscale restaurant, features not only authentic Mexican cuisine but actually has a gluten free menu! This extensive menu features an array of delicious items from salads to enchiladas to tacos to fish to meats to plantains.

I visited their Upper West side location in NYC, however, they also have an Upper East Side and Union Square location. If you are not in NYC, Rosa Mexicano has locations in Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Miami, FL, Hackensack, NJ, National Harbor, MD, and Los Angeles, CA.

The current gluten free menu includes:


*Guacamole and Tortilla Chips
*Salsas and Tortilla Chips
*Field Greens Salad
*Rolled Crispy Chicken Tacos
*Marinated Seafood
*Crab Turnovers
*Melted Cheese Fondue
*Layered Duck Tortilla Pie
*Mexico City Street Salad
*Grilled Vegetable Salad


*Chicken Enchiladas
*Vegetable Enchiladas
*Jumbo Lump Crab Enchiladas


*Pork Tacos
*Chicken Tacos
*Steak Tacos
*Fish Tacos


*Tuna Salad
*Red Snapper
*Shrimp Brochette
*Salmon Filet with Tropical Fruit Mole
*Steak and Shrimp Stew
*Mixed Grilled Brochette
*Chicken Tortilla Pie
*Short Ribs
*Filet Mignon with Wild Mushrooms
*Pork Shank
*Duck with Blackberry Sauce


*Fried Plantains
*Red Bean-Chorizo Chili
*Pico de Gallo

When I dined at Rosa Mexicano, I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas which I very much enjoyed. Their menu describes this dish as, "two soft corn tortillas filled with pulled roasted chicken, topped with a creamy tomatillo sauce and melted Chihuahua cheese."
