Gluten Free Restaurants in Barcelona

I was lucky enough to spend around 2 months working in Barcelona last year and I now visit there regularly as my company has an office there.

I really love Barcelona – the weather, the food, the architecture and the variety makes it an amazing place to visit. If you are a coeliac or on a gluten free diet for other reasons you don’t need to worry about spending a weekend or a few days here – there are a number of fantastic restaurants with tasty gluten free food and it is really well understood by waiting staff and chefs.

Here’s a list of 8 restaurants and some supermarkets to visit in Barcelona if you are on a gluten free diet:

Gluten Free Food at Yeni Meze Bar in Edinburgh

Last month my friend Michelle & I had a fabulous dinner at a restaurant called Yeni, in Hanover Street, Edinburgh. I was extra excited to find that the menu was clearly labeled with “GF” against each dish that was gluten free AND over half the menu is suitable for a gluten free diet. Yay Hay!

Yeni serves a mixture of middle eastern and mediterranean meze dishes which are kind of similar to Spanish Tapas, with a twist. The menu includes items such as Humus (GF pitta bread available!), Kizartma (mediterranean veg with garlic yoghurt), oven baked aubergine, Falafal, garlic mushrooms, prawns sauteed in olive oil & garlic, patates with a spicy tomato sauce, Dolma (stuffed vine leaves), Kebabs, salads and more.

Gluten Free in Looe, Cornwall – Trawler’s Restaurant

On our last night in Cornwall, we decided to have dinner out in Looe. If you’ve never been to Looe before, it’s a lovely little fishing town, with a beach, a nice harbour and lots of little restaurants and cafes to choose from. We initially decided to go to Squid Ink as they had gluten free options indicated on their menu, but unfortunately they were fully booked. So if you fancy a trip to Squid Ink, definitely book in advance.

Gluten Free Pub Food in Cornwall – Charlestown, near St Austell

This summer we decided to take a week’s self catering holiday in Cornwall, for some relaxation, sea air, a bit of sightseeing and hopefully some sunshine. We’ve booked a week in a lovely apartment with a balcony overlooking the sea, just a mile or so away from the little harbour town of Looe. Here’s a photo of the view from our balcony:

Since I’ve been on a gluten free diet, a self catering holiday has been my preference. Thankfully Stuart & I both enjoy cooking and the self catering gives us the flexibility of cooking ... Read More...

Gluten Free at Wok & Wine Edinburgh

Gluten Free Chinese Food at Wok & WineLast week I paid a visit to the Wok & Wine restaurant in Edinburgh. As the name suggests, Wok & Wine is a Chinese restaurant that also serves a good selection of wine. If you have coeliac disease you will know that eating out in Chinese restaurants can be a challenge due to the fact that soy sauce appears prominently in many dishes. Wok & Wine provide a separate gluten free menu that includes a good selection of dishes made with gluten free soy sauce and using potato and rice flour instead of wheat flour.

You can find Wok & Wine on 57a Frederick ... Read More...
