Rendezvous in Del Mar

Always on the lookout for new restaurants and willing to try new things my wife and I decided to visit Rendezvous in Del Mar which is a Chinese fusion restaurant and it also had a fairly robust gluten free menu.

Usually when I go out to a restaurant with my wife who is Gluten Free for health reasons I tend to order gluten free items as well.  We share dishes so I don’t to limit her ability to try my foods and vice versa.  It works out pretty well and I also get introduced to GF foods and add my own feedback and see whether I like them.

We started by ordering the GF Chicken Lettuce Wraps as an appetizer, they were good but not great.  Personally I thought the P.F. Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps taste better, but the lettuce leaf’s were fresh and huge.  The main course however wasn’t disappointing, I ordered the gluten free Shrimp with Lobster sauce and it was delicious.

My wife had the Chef’s Shrimp Saute which wasn’t bad, but my wife and I both agreed it didn’t taste as good as the Shrimp with Lobster sauce.

Rendezvous also offers a selection of gluten free sake (bottle purchase) and gluten free beers as well.  If you are in the mood for Chinese food and want a gluten free menu, Rendezvous was worth a try.

One other note, is they have dishes using Konnyaku noodles which are very low carbohydrate and calorie noodle dishes related to the Taro root, I didn’t get a chance to try any of the dishes but this makes for some low calorie and carbohydrate dishes if you are in looking for an option there as well.
