El Vergel Restaurant

I was talking to my college friend Kelley today online after I saw she linked to a blog advertising the 2-for-1 Pinkberry special that is continuing until Friday, February 19th.  Obviously I made her change the link to my blog!

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.

Do you love it or do you love it?

So glad you liked the video! There are more gluten free videos on the way, and I think you should make some for us too!
