Another day, another search for a safe gluten free meal at Musikfest. Today I volunteered down under the bridge, near the Bethlehem Dairy Store braving the gluten demon pouring beer at the Beer Caddy spot not far from FestPlatz. For my meal break I wanted to try something totally new so I passed by the corn stand where I could order an ear minus the seasoning mix.
I kept going all the way to Volzplatz. There I located a BBQ stand near the very end of the food stands, Sensenig’s Meats & Catering that said they had a safe choice, a loaded baked potato. It was topped with barbequed pulled pork and served with a squeeze tube of sour cream. The manager assured me his pulled pork and his BBQ sauce were both GF. He wasn’t sure about his shredded cheese that normally tops the potato so I skipped that at his recommendation. It cost me 9 tickets a/k/a $9.
Worth every penny considering the cost of other food there and the quality of what I ate from their stand. The bbq sauce was rich and flavorful. The pork meat was well roasted and very tasty. I put on some regular bbq sauce on top of my bbq but didn’t try the hot sauce. They had a couple of other sauces to pick from. The potato was decently baked and the sour cream went really well with the barbequed pork. Winner in both flavor and in filling my tummy. Give it a try.
FYI: I asked at the Vietnamese stand at VoltzPlatz but their food was not safe for celiacs. Up on Main Street there is a Vietnamese restaurant you can go in and eat inside and they do have safe food. It is tough to fest GF but it can be done if you ask polite but essential questions and be very careful in your choices.
