There’s a New Gluten-Free (+ Dairy-Free) Joint in Town


gluten-free restaurants laI would love to apologize for this photo because I was all, “Let’s rip this open and EAT,” after I picked up some bowls of delish at ShopHouse, a brand new Southeast Asian joint that opened in my neighborhood. Didn’t take much time to set up a glossy shot of the rice noodle bowls you’re gazing up on right there.

I miss all areas of Asian food SO MUCH, you guys. I’m lucky to have a go-to sushi place, and P.F. Chang’s can do in a pinch, but my local Thai place has basically told me to go scratch. So when the good people at the Chipotle-related ShopHouse reached out to me and asked me to come on by and try their noodle bowls I was all, “Uh-huh. Nom, nom, nom, nom.”

Not unlike Chipotle, ShopHouse does the no antibiotics meat thing and focuses on fresh ingredients while still bringing you the food fast. You’ve got that familiar assembly line where you can choose rice noodles, or a variety of rice and then add your protein, veggies, sauce, and accoutrements. Sure, that’s cool. But what is a bona fide mind-blower is EVERYTHING IN THE RESTAURANT IS GLUTEN-FREE. Oh, and DAIRY-FREE, if you swing that way. Which I don’t want to, but you know, should.

I also got probably way too excited by ordering a pork and chicken meatball situation because you know, we can’t eat meatballs outside our own home. My husband had the satay chicken, and we both went full on red curry. YUM. I feel super lucky that the Hollywood location is not very far from my house. And the next one to open should be near my work in Santa Monica. Currently the other one is in Washington D.C.

Hopefully the ShopHouse will spread all over the world and when you get that Thai/Indian/Delicious Jones you can head right over. I know I will. I wish every single one of you could too. No joke, gang. I want this for you.
