Saffron Restaurant, San Diego
Gluten Friendly Staff: yes
Gluten Free Menu: no need, it is naturally

Awesome Points: 100

I discovered this piece of heaven while exploring new restaurants in an area of San Diego on the edge of downtown called Mission Hills. I can’t believe I didn’t find it sooner it was life changing. Full on foodgasm.

Saffron’s menu is full of fresh ingredients primarily fruits and vegetables in exotic combinations that will not overwhelm you but bring traditional Thai to your table with elegant simplicity. Almost all of the items on the menu are gluten free and dairy free. The only thing to watch out for is soy sauce but if you ask nicely they have a GF bottle hiding behind the counter for you.

The restaurant was concepted by Su-Mei Yu who is a famous author most notably publishing a cookbook called The Elements of Life which arned a Julia Child award and TV spots including Martha Stewart. I figured if this woman can teach Martha to cook Thai food she can teach me. So, I immediately ordered the book and put it on my menu for my upcoming dinner party. (Amazon one-click shopping any time anywhere is dangerous and good, you can also purchase it at the restaurant) To my delight this is not just a cook book, it shares a balanced lifestyle that is expressed through weather, beauty, nutrition categorized by earth, wind, water, and fire. Guess what my dinner party menu theme is? You got it.
