Gluten Free Fast Food is Talking SMAK!

SMAK in Coal Harbour’s financial district is a 100% gluten-free restaurant that is changing the way we think of fast food — everything the fast food industry destroyed over the last 60 years is everything SMAK is rectifying now.

Vancouver’s need for more Gluten Free Choice

Last month we had the pleasure of trying to attend the Gluten Free Expo in Vancouver. To our surprise the line up to get in was extremely long. After sometime we were approached by an organizer letting us know that we were going to be unable to get in.
