Not being able to have gluten totally sucks, let’s not deny. But believe it or not, there are a tonne of places to stuff your face without ending up in pain on the floor. Isn’t that what dreams are made of? Yes, correct, it is. With Coeliac Awareness Week nearly upon us (13th to the 20th, write it in your diaries), Menulog has decided to be a complete doll, and has gathered up all our favourite gluten free eateries around the country. From the looks of things, there’s a pretty hectic selection to choose from; pizza, burgers, and the most popular, Thai (no surprises.)
There are also certain suburbs that get their gluten free on, more than others. As it turns out, Sydney’s own Pyrmont, Newport and Randwick, and Victoria’s Yarraville, froth over ordering a gluten free option.
Enoggera Lotus Room Chinese Resturant (Alderley)
These guys do King Prawns (or Scallops, if you want) with chilli sauce. Perfect if you love a bit of spice.
New South Wales
Manoosh Pizzeria (Enmore And Marrickville)
Ground thyme, sesame seeds and sumac is what makes up the Zaatar Bread, which you can eat without guilt.
Chilli Jam Thai (Concord)
Tom Kha Gai Soup is the fave, consisting of coconut milk, chicken, lemon grass and lime, galangal (looks like pink ginger, just FYI) and chilli jam. Yes please.
Oriental Healthy (Redfern)
This is the place for the traditional Thai Green Curry with all the bits and pieces in it. Just replace the white rice with quinoa and brown rice. Time to order 50, no shame.
Society Pizzeria Di Catania (Bondi)
Of course Bondi had to be on the list, isn’t it like the acai capitol? This pizza is filled with truffle oil and mushrooms so it’s literal heaven. Eat up.
The Colonial (Darlinghurst)
Rogan Josh is on the menu.. need we say more?
Loving Hut (Northcote)
They offer the sweet and sour we all love, but with the choice between Battered pork or, if you don’t want meat, Eggplant and Tofu.
Luck Thai (South Yarra)
Panang curry paste immersed in coconut cream with Thai basil, veggies (get ya greens) and selection of meat. Can’t go wrong, really.
Knoxfield Thai Restaurant (Knoxfield)
Order up a Tom Saab, a spicy, sour soup with dried chilli, ground roasted rice (this is a thing?) and sweet basil.
Chutney Marys Indian (Subiaco)
We all love a good butter chicken and this is where to get it. If anyone was sitting in the bath, wondering what Australia’s most popular Indian dish was, it’s this one.
