Wolfgang Puck Express - Disney Springs Marketplace

Yesterday, we had lunch at Wolfgang Puck Express in Disney Springs.  Before we moved to Orlando, we dined at Wolfgang Puck Express every year during our annual trip to Disney World.  

Wolfgang Puck Express is a quick service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and features Wolfgang's most popular dishes.  You can view their full menu here.   

The manager I spoke to said they had four gluten free options - the half rotisserie chicken, oven roasted salmon, and the Greek or Caesar salads with or without chicken.  

I have had the chicken with mashed potatoes, and the Greek salad with chicken in the past, so I decided to try the salmon.  I do recommend both the rotisserie chicken and the Greek salad, having enjoyed them on previous visits.  

After we paid for our meal, I noticed that our receipt did not have an allergy designation next to my dish,  so I spoke to one of the servers running food, who then talked to the chefs for me.   I wanted to make sure that there weren't cross contamination issues with my food, because the manager left before I ordered.  When my salmon was delivered, I was told that it was an allergy order, which made me feel better about the safety of my food.  

The oven roasted salmon is served with cauliflower puree, marinated tomatoes, and broccolini.  After my dish was delivered, I noticed that the cauliflower puree was missing, but our server quickly brought me a dish of it, and double-checked with the manager to make sure that it was gluten free.  

Salmon is my favorite fish, and Wolfgang Puck Express did not disappoint.  My fish was nicely seasoned, cooked to perfection, and well paired with the sides.  I loved the broccolini and tomatoes, and the cauliflower puree was nice and creamy.

I have always enjoyed my meals at Wolfgang Puck Express, but it makes me a little nervous when my food is not marked as an allergy order.  I took care of informing the chefs that I needed a gluten free meal, safe from cross contamination.  If I had not spoken to a server,  the chefs would have had no way of knowing that I had any special dietary needs, because the ticket they received, which the server showed me, said nothing.

What are your favorite gluten free dishes at Wolfgang Puck Express?
