Kelley works for a really cool company called TripFilms which commissions people to produce videos about their travels. When I told her I was looking into new options for the site, she pointed me towards a video on the TripFilms site about a restaurant in Madrid called El Vergel which offers gluten free options. After watching the video (below) I was definitely feeling hungry.

I did a little Googling for the restaurant, found its location, and did a double take. The restaurant is located at Paseo de la Florida 53 -- and I lived at Paseo de la Florida 33 when I lived in Madrid! I spent 9 months in Madrid during college and absolutely loved the city, but it was difficult to find gluten free substitutes. This restaurant was so close, yet so far; I can't believe I never knew about this place! I guess I'll have to go back to Madrid and check out El Vergel's gluten free offerings.
