Located about 45 minutes outside of Montreux in the Canton of Fribourg is a hidden gem of a mountain restaurant in the town of Les Paccots. Getting there is half of the fun as you eventually find yourself on a single lane road that runs both up and down the mountain – just don’t imbibe too much because the way down is quite harrowing in the darkness of night.
The feel of the MP Grill is classic and clean modern take on the space and what the hotel describes as a fusion of belle époque and arresting contemporary aesthetics. It is actually quite a lovely space and feels very must connected to the aesthetic feel of the hotel. Walls of windows afford a fantastic view of the lake…
If it is the end of summer than you’ll find me heading to Montreux, Switzerland for my annual visit. This visit marked our eighth visit to Montreux and it is truly something that we look forward to every year. Future posts will focus on the gluten-free food finds (and there were many) but this post is about something near and dear to my heart – the flights.
One of those items that I truly missed when I first received my celiac diagnosis was my old friend – the bagel. You have to realize that my diagnosis came at a time when there were really not that many gluten-free options out there and well, those that were out there were not always the best replacements for their gluten-filled counterparts.
One of the biggest sinking moments that I had when I received my celiac diagnosis was the eventual realization, that at that point in time, there would no longer be any Chinese food in my foreseeable future. My diagnosis came when gluten-free options were few and far between and quite frankly more often than not – not worth the effort to seek out.
