Thank you very much to all my twitter followers who helped me find somewhere to eat lunch in Southampton a couple of weeks ago. We were visiting a friend down there but as he was new to the area too, none of us had any idea of gluten free places to go. Thank you in particular though to Emma ( @emma_jayne86 ) who suggested about 10 different places to try but most recommended La Baronia, a Mexican just outside the city centre. If you are ever around Southampton and want the best gluten free Mexican food, go here! It is amazing and basically the whole menu is gluten free ( see all the GF symbols below) and the food is superb. All the tacos and tortillas are made from corn and I felt safe that the kitchen had good GF knowledge so there would be no cross contamination.
I’d even go as far as to say that it is better than some of the high end London based Mexican places I have tried. It was hard to chose but we decided to share starters and between three of us we had the nachos and BBQ ribs. The ribs simply melted into your mouth when you ate them and the guacamole with the nachos was homemade and so good. For mains we shared two of the beef ‘puntas albanil’ and one of the mushroom ‘sarape de carne’ and again they had excellent flavours and fresh ingredients with the beef rare in the middle and really juicy.I really wish I lived abit nearer to Southampton to go again, il just have to wait until next time I visit my friend!
All this for the measly sum of £12 each too! 10/10!
