Larder at Hotel Emma (San Antonio)

Rating: A-

My mom and I went to Hotel Emma to try to eat a late lunch at their restaurant Supper. Unfortunately, they have pretty strict hours for when they serve, so remember that if you ever go. We were about to go somewhere else, when the hostess suggested that Larder was open for food. Larder is a sort of old-school provisions store that also has some food items. They were able to do gluten free sandwiches, and I'm so happy we went. They were really flavorful and their bread was pretty good. There wasn't a huge selection, but I really enjoyed what we had.

Fried Egg Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato & Avocado

I still can't figure out how they did this because the bacon was really thin, almost like corned beef. It was delicious though.

 

White Bean Hummus on Naan, Roasted Pepper & Salsa Verde

This one was amazing!! So flavorful and I loved how messy it was.

Schlotsky's (San Antonio)

I had no idea the first Schlotsky's was in Austin, but I can see now why their locations are so much nicer.  Also, you can see here a glimpse of the Schlotsky's Sauce I'm so obsessed with. :)

Schlotsky's is a restaurant chain that I used to go to all the time in middle school and high school.  Ever since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I've really missed their bread and their warm, delicious sandwiches.  More than anything, though, their sandwiches are just a vehicle to dip in their awesome signature Schlotsky's sauce.  Luckily, they've recently partnered up with Udi's, so I can once again eat their awesome sandwiches.

I definitely didn't go to the prettiest location and really the locations in Austin are much nice looking than most of the locations I've been to in San Antonio, but I'm definitely going to try to support their business because I'm so happy they're making an effort to cater to Celiacs and gluten intolerant people. They have a corporate gluten free cross contamination prevention protocol (see below), and the guy I ordered from knew all about it, so I was pretty excited.

You order at the counter and then take a number


 

I ordered a gluten free Smoked Turkey Original. The gluten free sandwiches all come in one size because they have a standard size Udi's bun. 

I will DEFINITELY be back :)
