Poke is all the trend! Splash Poke has Gluten Free Options

This is a guest blog post from Geneviev

Friends and I had a quick lunch at Splash Poke on 109 St & Jasper Ave. They label their sauces for gluten free on the menu board. They mix it fresh, one portion at a time in front of you. Rice & vermicelli noodles for base are gluten free. The raw fish is unseasoned until you pick your sauce. They have cooked chicken, but it's pre-marinated and I didn't ask about it as I went with salmon & tuna. They have fried toppings that aren't gluten free so I stuck to sesame seeds and veggie options.

Gluten Free Sheet Pancakes Adapted from Tasty Junior

1 comment
I totally got this idea from BuzzFeeds Tasty Junior, so nothing original here!  But I wanted to say I was able to successfully adapt it for gluten free.

Quite frankly, although I used the gluten free Kinnikinnick Pancake mix, you can probably follow their recipe and do a 1 for 1 substitute.

So for directions, if you are using the Kinnikinnick Pancake mix, just follow their directions.  You may need to make 3 to 4 batches to fill up the tray.  I added 1/2 tsp of baking soda to each batch to create some more fluff.

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread the batter across.  Then get creative with your toppings!

The picture below from top to bottom is:

  • Alternating strawberry slices and cream cheese scoops taken directly from the Tasty Junior recipe (link at top of page)
  • Alternating Banana and peanut butter (we used sun butter) and put one chocolate chip ontop of the peanut scoop.
  • Sprinkles!
  • Chocolate chips and cinnamon.


The website says bake for 15 minutes at 425, but that was really too much.  It dried out the pancake a little more than I liked.  So I would maybe do 400 for 10 minutes and just check from there.


Cut into squares and serve!

The Melting Pot is very fond-ue of gluten free

2 comments
Amanda and I recently celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary.  We have been wanting to try The Melting Pot Edmonton for a while but they are always booked!  But this time, I managed to snag a reservation two weeks out!


When booking my reservation, I made sure to note a gluten free meal, so when we arrived at our table, the server was already on the ball, and knew we were having a gluten free meal and went over the menu with us, which was basically open except a few things. So I won't really go over all that here, but I want to give a few tips.
  1. Like any restaurant, cross contamination is an issue.  Know that when you eat with a group, it is better that the whole group eats gluten free so the fondue pot is not being contaminated.  This includes sauces etc.
  2. Go over the menu with the server, so you know what is, and what is not gluten free.  They will be happy to help.
  3. Don't look so shocked when they bring you a plate of gluten free brownies and cake for dipping!  Scroll right to the bottom for lots of yum!


Above, we chose the spinach and artichoke appetizer.  The wait staff prepped the fondue in front of us with some veggie broth, cheese, artichoke hearts and spinach.  It was served with gluten free bread, veggies and apple for dipping.


Next course was salad.  Above is the wedge salad with ranch, bacon, Gorgonzola and slices of tomato.  Below is their house salad with a mustard dressing with egg and tomato.



For the main course we decided to order our own plates and share.  Above is the surf and turf and below is the traditional.  There were a couple items that were not gluten free, so they just swapped out to any protein of our choosing.  Yum yum yum yum.  I forgot to take a picture of the broth we cooked this in.  The waitress gave us the cooking times.


Below is all the sauces they gave us (minus two that were not gluten free).  I can't remember all of them, but I remember a few being a currie, a blue cheese, and a sweet and sour.


Now for the star!  Dessert!  OMG!  We ordered the original with chocolate and peanut butter.  They served it with to slices of gluten free cake and a piece of gluten free brownie!  yum yum yum yum!  It was also served with pineapple, banana, strawberry and marshmallow.  Personally, the marshmallow was my favourite to dip!



So basically, you should eat here!
