would you like poutine with that?

Fries and cheese curds and gravy, oh my!

Fries and cheese curds and gravy, oh my!


A trip to the Gluten Free Garage just isn’t complete without stopping by the Hero Burgers food truck for the best poutine this side of Papineau. Our favourite corner spot for gluten-free (and hormone- and antibiotic-free) burgers and buns, HB has our carnivorous cravings covered all over town. Thanks to this short-order saviour, there are plenty of GF options to choose from, but note that not all locations offer the gluten-free poutine—made in a dedicated fryer with trans-fat-free canola oil—so be sure to ask before ordering (the Colossus and Yonge & Shephard restaurants have them). We’re purists when it comes to poutine so we stick with the traditional dish, but for the more adventurous, Hero Burgers serves up four different flavours: beef, mushroom, garden and Caesar.


blah albldl

Available at all locations across the GTA!



the grain-free gourmet

JK Gourmet

JK Gourmet’s new honey-sweetened artisan chocolate comes in four tempting flavours: roasted almonds, almonds & blueberries, almonds & cherries, almonds & black currants. But no need to feel guilty for indulging—it’s made with raw, organic, fair-trade, dairy-free Ecuadorian dark chocolate!


Celiac may be the first disease most people associate with gluten free, but for JK Gourmet founder, cookbook author and colitis sufferer Jodi Bager, going “g” free (as in gluten and grains) was a key ingredient to being symptom free for the past 16 years.

Launched in 2001, JK Gourmet makes natural whole foods and baked goods—free from grains, gluten, sugar and preservatives—that taste out of this world and make you feel great, regardless of your reason for going gluten free.

JK Gourmet was one of the first of its kind to bring choice grain-free ingredients together with culinary expertise (and far too many health benefits to list) and stays on top of the trade by coming out with irresistible new products on a regular basis.

We’ve been huge fans of JK Gourmet’s granola forever and these days we can’t get enough of their new artisan chocolate (drop by the JK booth at Gluten Free Garage and taste for yourself!). But with the fall season well underway, nothing makes us feel as warm and cozy as this rustic apple pie, made from none other than JK Gourmet’s famed almond flour.
