Swiss Chalet

Swiss Chalet, Glendale Avenue, St. Catharines, Ontario

Swiss Chalet is one of my favourite restaurants in Ontario. The food is delicious and their menu offers a wide range of options for people who have celiac disease. I have never had chicken that is more juicy and tender at any other restaurant. I’m not sure what their secret is, but they have perfected the art of cooking chicken. Their baby back ribs are another favourite of mine. I can’t get enough of their rib sauce. I always order extra. I don’t just have it on my ribs, I dip my chicken and my fries in it. I just mentioned fries, which are usually not a gluten free item at Swiss Chalet due to the cross-contamination in shared fryers. I have a secret; where I live I can have the fries!

Let me talk more about their delicious fries. I love them, I crave them, I can’t get enough of them and when I order my meal I sometimes order an extra side of fries! I consider myself lucky because the Swiss Chalet I order from has a dedicated fryer for celiacs and gluten intolerant people. There are 3 locations in the city I live in, but only one has a dedicated fryer. I called them the other day and thanked them for going out of their way to make fries for people like me happen.

So before you rule out having the fries, call your local restaurant and ask them if they have a dedicated fryer. You won’t know unless you ask. And ask you must, even at my preferred location. They still have a shared fryer, so if you want gluten free fries you have to ask them to use their dedicated fryer! Eating at any restaurant, although they do their best to be careful can still have a risk of cross-contamination.

Thank you Swiss Chalet locations with dedicated fryers. I hope you all get the opportunity one day to enjoy their delicious fries!
