I have 5 girls and my wife are gluten free eaters and all of them ate with no problems. They just didn't eat the bread. The rice and beans , grilled chicken and the plantains are no problems for them. I hope this helps.

You don't have to travel to Cuba or the Caribbean to experience the flavors that are indigenous to the tropics. Papi's brings all the essence of the South Seas to you, with attention to authenticity and an adherence to the recipes of generations.
