The Husband has been enjoying the lunch features at Taco Mamacita for quite a while now. Looking at the menu he figured there was no way he could bring his gluten-intolerant wife to such a place. Flour tortillas, enchiladas smothered in sauces, marinated meats, and lovely seasonings would send any Celiac running for the door.
But that was before he met Whitney. Whitney works at Taco Mamacita and is gluten-intolerant herself. So she has worked with the restaurant to make sure that there are many gluten-free options. She has also taught them about avoiding cross-contamination in the kitchen. After talking to Whitney, any gluten-free diner would feel comfortable eating at Taco Mamacita.
The Husband and I had a lovely, worry-free meal on Saturday night. It started with appetizers. Whitney highly recommended the guacamole but warned against the tortilla chips. Since they are fried in the same oil used to fry flour tortillas she brought us corn tortillas sliced in wedges to dip into the creamy guacamole. All of their appetizers are gluten-free. Just stay away from the chips if you are extremely sensitive.
I opted for enchiladas. After running the Nashville Women’s Half Marathon that morning I needed some serious protein. The Brisket Rancheros fit the order perfectly.
The Husband ordered two tacos, the California Club and the Avocado Taco from the Vegan menu.
If you’re in the Nashville area, check out Taco Mamacita in Edgehill Village at 1200 Villa Place. And definitely ask for Whitney. She’ll take great care of you.
