*I have learned that Relish is now closed.* - March 2013
I found Relish on the Gluten Free Travel Site and made a point of going when I was in Allentown, PA. They have so many gluten free options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that I was sad I only had the time to go once.
For such a casual place, the menu is pretty impressive. For breakfast they have pancakes, french toast, waffles, omelets, and eggs benedict. For lunch they have numerous salads and sandwiches. At dinner they add on some appetizers and entrees.
I was bound and determined to get the mac and cheese, and seeing as it was only a side dish, I got the Thai Cobb Salad to go along with it. The salad had mango, coconut, peanuts, snow peas, and carrots on a bed of lettuce. It was different and fun. The macaroni and cheese, unfortunately, wasn't as good as I was hoping for. It consisted of globby gluten free pasta with some cheese on it. I was expecting more of a bechamel cheese sauce, but I guess I was just hoping for my mom's mac and cheese and that's not really fair. For dessert I got some amazing cheesecake to go from Moondance Desserts.
Despite not loving the mac and cheese, there are so many other things at Relish I want to try: blueberry pancakes, eggs benedict, asian pear salad, fresh grilled chicken wrap, southern pulled pork sandwich, pizza, mini potato pancakes, crab cakes, mozzarella sticks, tropical tilapia, pork chops, gluten free ravioli, and pretty much everything else. I can't wait until my next meeting in the Allentown area. I'll definitely be stopping by Relish again.
