    Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney now has a new menu with a selection of gluten-free meals.

    Mark Gibson, the co-founder of Splitsville said “We considered a separate menu, but decided to integrate the gluten-free dishes into the regular menu. So many of our guests are eating gluten-free these days, we wanted our featured “GF†items to have great flavor and appeal – we didn’t want to simply reconstruct existing dishes.â€

    Chef Patrick Steele set to work, creating menu additions that, while gluten-free, are also quite tasty. The biggest hits are the generous rice bowls: fiesta chicken, steak fajita, Asian shrimp and spicy veggie, all full of flavor and served with sticky rice. But it may be the gluten-free pizza crust that is the best surprise, a crunchy, thin crust topped with mozzarella and fresh tomato sauce, and you can pile on your choice of “GF†toppings. You’ll never miss the wheat flour.

    While sushi is generally a safe zone, some sauces and ingredients aren’t gluten-free, like Kani Kama krab, a favorite white fish mix that contains wheat. Splitsville has added gluten-free sushi rolls – our favorite was The Alberto with no rice, just lean spicy tuna and avocado rolled in thinly sliced cucumber and served with lemon ponzu sauce.

    Gluten-free appetizers include Blazing Chicken (tenderloins in spicy Buffalo sauce), steamed edamame and seared ahi tuna, which also is served as a salad with spring mix and Asian pear dressing. A gluten-free turkey BLT salad is another winner, a bowl full of roasted turkey, lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, red onion and blue cheese. Entrees include blackened mahi mahi with spicy voodoo shrimp and grilled salmon with mango chutney, fresh broccoli and sushi rice.

    Wow. They look very nice. I don't know how well they can do Asian, as they seem to be a true bowling alley, but it sure looks like they could be given a chance. :yes:

    I don't eat gluten free but I try and avoid white carbs as much as possible (apart from hot dog stuffed pizza ;) on the odd blowout!) I love things like this. The ahi tuna speaks to me! Can you eat there without bowling?

    Yes you can eat there without bowling. We tried it last May. Surprisingly good.
