Eating Gluten Free at Rostizado for Modern Mexican Cuisine

I first have to say that I can't believe it took us so long to eat at Rostizado because we love their other restaurant Tres Carneles.

While being seated, at the restaurant we were immediately welcomed by co-owner Chris Sills from behind the bar with a friendly smile.  It has been a while since we visited Tres's so glad he remembered us!

Their menu is clearly marked with GF options, which there is plenty of.  With so much to choose from we thought to go with what seemed to be their staple of ordering a platter.  We ordered the platter for two which was only $50, and you got to choose two proteins.  We chose the polo (Chicken) and the puerco (pork), because they are gluten free.  The beef has a soy sauce on it, so it is not gluten free.

Since we were on a date night, we decided to splurge with an extra side of their roasted cauliflower.  Which BTW, we truly didn't need because we weren't aware of how big the actual platter is!

When the platter came out we really didn't know where to start.  Everything looked delicious.  We ended up starting with the chicken, slow roasted and seasoned to perfection!  Then we tried the pork shoulder, a very inexpensive cut of meat elevated to such a delicious bite.  The potatoes we amazing, along with the cucumber salad in the middle. The platter also came with four salsa's and some corn tortilla's.

The roasted cauliflower was so delicious as well.  They have roasted garlic cloves mixed in as well which I loved.  But I know that is not for everyone.

Although we did not order dessert off the menu they do have a flan (like a custard), or a sweet tamales for dessert that sounded delicious.  I'm already a fan of flan!  It is not a dessert you regularly find available in Edmonton.  So it is something I will definitely be ordering next time.
