Now the Golden Inn is Gluten Free!

AVALON, NJ - -The Golden Inn of Avalon New Jersey is hoping to make dining at the shore a bit easier for those that need or want a gluten free menu.
“It can be difficult and dangerous when you are on vacation if you cannot find the right foods for a specific diet like those that have Celiac disease or need a gluten-free menu,” explains Paul Krulish, Food and Beverage Director of The Golden Inn.
Krulish knows first-hand how trying it can be to find dining opportunities for those with special dietary needs, his own two children both have Celiac. “I am probably hyper-sensitive to the needs and wants of this population because I live it every day with my own children.”
Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disease in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged from eating gluten and other proteins found in wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats.
Krulish said he set out to create a Gluten-free menu that kids and adults could enjoy. The breakfast menu includes traditional offerings like eggs and bacon, but also includes Gluten-free waffles and cereals including Chocolate Checks, Corn Check, Cinnamon Checks and Frosted Flakes. There are also Gluten-free bagels and English muffins!
Lunch offerings include a traditional Caesar salad sans croutons, fish tacos, salads, hamburgers and hot dogs and what Krulish describes as a “fabulous personal size pizza!”
“I have been working with an array of vendors who provide Gluten-free products to find the best that is out there. Just to offer a Gluten-free item was not enough, it has to taste great too,” he added.
Dinner options include fresh seafood, meat and poultry selections. “I am really happy with the options we are able to offer and I plan to expand the menu as items become available,” Krulish said.
