#4: Bartaco 12 South

Most restaurants have marked gluten-free menu items. Bartaco’s different. GF is the norm here, with a handful of items containing gluten. Locals warn tourists to stay away from Bartaco—it’s so good they want to keep it to themselves! Their favorite tacos include the roasted duck with tamarind glaze and the spicy tempura-battered Baja fish. But the pork belly is exceptional—as succulent and rich as a king’s palace.

#7: Fido

The name pays homage to the original business of the building: a pet store. This funky cafe is the perfect place to grab a quick bite and coffee or to study/work all day. At Fido, they serve breakfast from open to close, with options like the salmon bagel or the fluffy buttermilk pancakes. They also have a lunch and dinner menu. Try the Chicken Sando; fried or grilled chicken breast on a salted pretzel bun with garlic aioli, lettuce, tomato, and pickles with fries on the side. Not all items are gluten-free but ask for their grass-fed lamb or beef burger; you won’t be disappointed. Roasted sweet potatoes make a scrumptious side.
