Gluten Free Food

I am travelling to Santiago in April. I have an allergy to Gluten (Wheat, Rye, Barley, Oats). Will I have trouble with the places to eat. What are your suggestions.

I am not sure that you can find it indicated on restaurant menus that dishes are gluten free. You can certainly get gluten free food in supermarkets. I guess as long as you stick to meat or fish and salads (and avoid sauces) you will be fine. These options are always available.

In addition to meats, seafood, fruits & vegetables, look for lentils (lentejas), quinoa, corn & the related choclo, and of course, rice.

Maybe you're not planning to cook at all, but in any case of emergency...

Jumbo supermarket (well known) has a section for people with Celiac sprue.
