Whatever your reason, Porta Via Italian Kitchen is responding to the requests of their customers by importing a new gluten-free flour they offer as an option in their pizzas, breads and pastas.
The gluten-free flour is imported from Italy and contains a blend of rice, fava bean and potato. You have to ask for it in when you order — and of course pizza, pasta and bread made with traditional wheat still dominate the menu).
In an interesting twist, the management of Porta Via has managed to create gluten-free options while still adhering to the strict pizza standards set forth by the Associazone Pizza Napoletana (VPN).
That's quite a feat, so I hope the anti-gluten set appreciates the effort and gives the new dishes a try. Report back here how the new flour is working out.
Porta Via Italian Kitchen is located at 21 White Bridge Road. Check out their website at www.eatatportavia.com for more information.
