I have to admit that while the Treasure Coast is certainly a beautiful place to live, they don’t have much in the way of gluten-free friendly places. When I spotted the Mo Bay Grill on my Find Me Gluten Free app and saw that they had a GF menu, I immediately knew we had to check it out.
Mo Bay Grill is a Jamaican restaurant in Sebastian, FL that you’d probably overlook if you didn’t know it was there – it’s in a strip mall, and it’s a pretty small place. But the minute you walk in, the smell hits you and you know you’re about to eat some yummy food!
First off, the menu has clearly labeled gluten-free items denoted by a G with a circle around it – there was a huge variety to choose from too.
The staff clearly knows their stuff, too – when I asked whether the fried plantains were done in a shared fryer, she immediately assured me that they had a separate fryer for the gluten-free items. She also verbally confirmed as she noted on the order that I was gluten free.
We started with the fried plantains – wow! If you haven’t had plantains before, they’re very similar to bananas, just a bit more starchy.
For my entrée, I went with the Chicken Run Down, which was chicken breast medallions sauteed with peppers and onions and smothered in a creamy coconut sauce.
Maybe not so pretty to look at (plus it’s hard to photograph cream sauce well) but very tasty! Coconutty, but not too sweet, and the chicken was juicy and perfectly cooked.
If you’re in the Sebastian area, you should definitely check this place out, gluten free or not. We will definitely be back so I can start working my way through that menu!
