The Bay Leaf Balinese Restaurant
Cairns, Queensland View On Map
The Bay Leaf Balinese Restaurant is a delightful restaurant in Cairns. I have had lovely meals here. They even have a dedicated gluten free menu - just ask for it. I can thoroughly recommend their Balinese Chicken Curry.

Townsville, Queensland View On Map
Benny's in Palmer Street, Townsville has a separate gluten free menu and the food is excellent. Overall, I had about 15 choices on the menu and ended up choosing a garlic and honey prawn stir fry. There were even gluten free options for dessert. It was an excellent meal and the best stir fry I have had in a very long time.

Airlie Beach, Queensland View On Map
Albergo's is an Italian restaurant in Airlie Beach. They have gluten free pasta and pizza bases but their menu does not indicate what is gluten free. I paid a visit and spoke to the chef in the morning before we made a booking. He was very helpful, willing to talk to me and assured me that the menu could be adjusted so I had barramundi and chat potatoes with a salad instead of chips.

Funkys Coffee and Eatery
Bundaberg, Queensland View On Map
What a terrific little cafe! There are lots of gluten free slices, cakes, quiches and sausage rolls. They use gluten free chocolate on their cappuccino's too. Funkys has two shops - the cafe and an eatery which sells gluten free fish and chips plus other lunch options as well. Funky's is well worth a visit if you are in Bundaberg.

Cedar Park Fish and Chip Shop
Yeppoon, Queensland View On Map
Cedar Park Fish and Chip Shop in Yeppoon actually has a gluten free menu! I could not believe our good luck at finding a fish and chip shop which served gluten free food. They have separate storage areas for all of their gluten free products, a separate preparation area and a dedicated deep fryer for gluten free only. They highlight all gluten free orders and you have the choice of crumbed (using rice crumbs), battered or grilled fish and other seafood as well. Plus their chips are gluten free. This was an amazing find and right next door was Yogalicious too!

Y4 Eatery
Yeppoon, Queensland View On Map
Y4 Eatery in Yeppoon is a small cafe/restaurant which has a lot of gluten free dishes clearly identified on their menu. They even have gluten free garlic bread and a sticky date pudding for dessert! The waitress even went and double checked that a dish marked gluten free really was - for her peace of mind! Now that's gluten free awareness! Well done to Y4.

Yeppoon, Queensland View On Map
Yogolicious is in the Cedar Park Shopping Centre at Yeppoon and right next door to a gluten free fish and chip shop. Yogolicious is also very gluten free aware and advertise that all their items on the menu can be made gluten free. They have gluten free bread, buns and wraps as well. I had the most delicious grilled chicken burger here and the bun was toasted to perfection. This was the best bun I have tasted so far.

Crustaceans on the Wharf
Darwin, Northern Territory View On Map
Crustaceans on the Wharf in Darwin had delicious seafood and all the gluten free options are highlighted on a separate menu - just ask to see it. The grilled wild barramundi, chips and salad was a taste sensation to tickle the taste buds. Absolutely delicious. Chips here are gluten free too.

Skycity Casino
Darwin, Northern Territory View On Map
Skycity Casino in Darwin has a buffet meal in their restaurant. I spoke to the chef here who was very happy to walk me through the buffet and explain what was gluten free and what wasn't. I had a lovely meal here, but the pick of the buffet for me, was the Pork and Pumpkin Curry. It was delicious. As per usual, and I'm getting very used to this, there were no desserts gluten free. However, the lovely Chef Raffi personally created a strawberries in liqueur dessert just for me, which I really appreciated.

Katherine Gorge
Nitmiluk, Northern Territory View On Map
Katherine Gorge has an interpretation centre which serves meals. I had pre-ordered a gluten free meal and was relieved to find they had toasted gluten free bread for me and that I could eat anything from the cold meats and salad bar except the pasta salad. All the dressings were gluten free too. To finish with we even had a delicious fruit salad. One of the wait staff is also gluten free so their understanding of 'gluten free' is excellent.

Inglewood, Perth View On Map
We'd been meaning to book in at iLPASTO Italian Trattoria for months, since they opened just down the street and I'd picked up a menu, but we just never did it. I finally booked on Friday afternoon for 6.30pm on Saturday. I asked about Gluten free and they said yes definitely, even the sauces are handmade and slowly reduced, no thickeners are added. We arrived exactly on time and I must say the restaurant whilst cosy is very refined. We were seated at a table for two in the middle and then the wonderful service began.

I was pleased to see that as promised when booking, the menus are marked Gluten free, and I had a wonderful array of choices. Our Entrees arrived in these gorgeous little glazed terracotta dishes, I felt they were reminiscent of Spain, but since we haven't been to Italy I don't know if they are traditional or just what they use for serving. The entrees were delicious, simple, tasty and well portioned. The Mains did not disappoint, generous servings and plenty of yummy sauce.

They offered a Chocolate Flourless cake which contained both almond and hazelnut meal, the latter essential I think in a good GF Chocolate cake and it was AMAZING. It was like a fudge cake, served with berries, berry coulis and a dollop of cream. To die for.

Even with the three courses, thanks to a light entree we didn't roll out of there feeling sickly full, it was a thoroughly enjoyable meal at a cosy and inviting little restaurant off Beautfort St, Inglewood and you'll certainly see us eating there again.

CoCCo's Pizzeria
Crows Nest, Sydney View On Map
Before Tuesday I had never heard of Cocco's Pizzeria in Crows Nest, but as I discovered this was because they have only recently opened. Charles took me to the restaurant as a surprise for my birthday after work. Cocco's, I must say was a great restaurant or in the words of a friend of mine "amazing". We now use the word "amazing" to describe experiences that resonate in our minds afterwards for hours or even days because the taste was just that good.

The restaurant itself is not huge, but fits quite a few people in downstairs. From the looks of it the pizza kitchen is downstairs and everything else is cooked upstairs. It makes for a real Italian experience where you can see the pizzas not only getting made, but you can smell the wonderful kitchen aromas. Upon arrival we were seated immediately alongside the pizza kitchen, but because the restaurant was not packed to the rafters as it was a Tuesday we had plenty of room. The menu is extensive with everything from entrees to pizza (even gluten free) to pastas (you need to request gluten free) to mains and of course dessert. If you have allergy requests you just need to speak with the wait staff who can confirm with the chef. I had the waiter double check the main because I thought the sauce might contain gluten. Lucky I did, turns out all the chicken is coated in flour and that is not on the menu. Just make sure you make them aware, but remember there are plenty of options for gluten, lactose, nut and any other allergies. Best part is that there are no extra charges for gluten free pasta or pizza. Another major plus for Cocco's.

Wrapping up I would recommend Cocco's to anyone who is looking for some great Italian food that is also allergy friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food wonderful and the staff more than friendly.

Black Tonic Espresso Bar
Airport, Sydney View On Map
I was traveling to NZ earlier in the year and because I had chosen Air New Zealand's seat + bag option I wasn't going to get any food on the plane. I therefore searched the airport for morning tea (to have at the airport) and lunch (to take on the plane). I noticed that Black Tonic Espresso Bar had a selection of gluten free muffins and therefore decided on the raspberry one for morning tea. I was pleasantly surprised, it was moist and actually tasted pretty good!

Kobe Jones
Kings St Wharf, Sydney View On Map
Kobe Jones is located on King St Wharf with magnificent water views. Before I booked the restaurant I checked with management if they catered for gluten free requirements. I was sent a word document via email, which outlined exactly what I could eat on the menu and the different ingredients that were substituted for items that are not gluten free. I was extremely impressed and even more so that they had gluten free soy sauce. No carrying my own soy sauce around. Absolutely brilliant!

The wait staff throughout the entire night was always overly polite and constantly tendered to each table. There was always water in our glasses, food on the table and anything else last minute to be requested was catered for. On ordering I showed the print out of the menu I was emailed and the waitress simply took this to the chef to show our orders. It made our lives very easy.

Kobe Jones was one of the best places I have tried in Sydney to date. The only downside to Kobe Jones is that it can be quite pricey. We are happy to pay these prices for special occasions because you get not only great tasting food, but large servings. I would not be able to eat here every night, but now and then I am going to be back there.

Liar Liar
Hawthorn, Melbourne View On Map
Just off Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn, you'll find Liar Liar Cafe. Home to brilliant coffee, gorgeous cakes, and a fantastic selection of GF options. I had the GF steak sandwich... fab! They don't take reservations on the weekend so you might have to wait, but it'll be worth it!

Q Eleven
South Melbourne, Melbourne View On Map
This South Melbourne gem is always jam-packed on the weekend, and rightly so - the breakfasts here are to die for! With a large selection of gluten-free options, I can wholeheartedly recommend the balsamic mushrooms, avocado mash, Yarra Valley feta, dukkah, toasted GF bread... yum!!

One huge bonus is that if there's no table available, they'll take your number and text you when one frees up - giving you the chance to go and browse the South Melbourne Market while you wait!

Cafe Gaia
South Yarra, Melbourne View On Map
Just off Toorak Road, you'll find Cafe Gaia - open from early in the morning for breakfasts, all the way till late in the evening for dinner and drinks. I've only ever been here for breakfast... repeatedly! Try the Tom Cooper smoked salmon on GF toast with avocado, poached eggs, dukkah & beetroot relish, or my ex's personal favourite - potato, parmesan & rosemary rosti with crispy pork belly, tomato & chilli relish & poached eggs

Newport & Leichhardt, New South Wales View On Map
Buffet style dining options are not always the best when you are restricted to what you eat. The experience can be disappointing, frustrating and leaves you with hunger pains no one else seems to face. When I was living in Tokyo my friends from Latin America introduced me to the concept of Brazilian Churrascaria dining. Since then I have never looked back, not even for a second. If you are not aware of Brazilian Churrasco's this is where meat comes out on sticks by the bucket load and it does not stop until you say. Since arriving back from Japan two years ago I was on the lookout for a great Brazilian Churrasco to enjoy the amazing flavours of different meats, plus I like to eat, A LOT. Friends recommended Braza at both Newport and Leichardt,

The service provided by the staff was wonderful. We were greeted promptly, attended to immediately, always offered skewered meats regularly and were never without sides or drinks. The highlight for me was how attentive the staff was to my food allergies, the menu is very straight forward. It is $42 for the churrasco buffet, which includes all you can eat meat and sides. If you do not want meat there are vegetarian dishes and other meal options. Desserts are also provided along with a separate drinks menu. But wait it gets better! At Braza Newport or Leichardt you NEVER have to explain yourself. The wait staff provides you with simple laminated menus showing what you CANNOT eat as a coeliac or if you are lactose intolerant. There are other allergy menus, but you will have to ask for these.

There is very little that you cannot eat. Out of about 20+ meats there was only about four I could not eat due to their marinades. The sides were a similar situation, but made better because the chefs will make you a salad without gluten or lactose if required. That's how we ended up with the cheese on the side for our salads, so everyone was happy. As for desserts, if you are just celiac you have options, but if you are lactose intolerant you will be missing out. No biggy for me as I am use to this, so I just enjoyed some tea and saved dessert for home.

The meats and sides were fabulous. The reason I love churrasco so much is due to the meats and not because it is unlimited. The meats cooked at Brazilian Churrascos are tender, flavoursome and melt in your mouth. To compliment the meat the sides go very well including rice, salads and breads. My mum and brother commented that their desserts were delicious, not that I was jealous at all.

I will definitely be back again to Braza, whether it is Newport or Leichardt I do not know.

Tramway Hotel
North Fitzroy, Melbourne View On Map
The Tramway is a little pub just off Brunswick Street in Fitzroy North. It's undergone a bit of a facelift since new owners took over earlier this year, and while I never went there when the previous owners were about, I can say that nowadays its a cosy, friendly place with a fab wine list and no less than 8 craft beers on tap. And best of all - gluten free burgers!!

I'd been told that the Tramway had recently introduced gluten free buns on their already talked-about burgers, so of course I made a beeline to check it out for myself. I ordered the "Tramway" - Beef burger with lettuce, tomato, spanish onion, cheese, bacon, aioli and tomato relish. It came as an open burger, with gluten free bun on the bottom - being gf, the bun is quite dense, and any more than one piece would be too much! Served with yummy coleslaw and crunchy thick cut chips. And best part of all - it cost the same as the "normal" burger. Score!

So if you're after a great little pub with fab burgers for both gf and non-gf alike, check out the Tramway!
