During my last few trips to London I tried out a few spots which were great for offering gluten free choices. I find sometimes places advertise as having gluten free options but then the staff are super unhelpful and you’re left feeling like you only have one choice, which is normally a salad. However, the places listed below were super helpful in explaining my choices and were really happy to check with the kitchen regarding any questions I had.
3 Gluten Free Places to Try on Your Next Trip to London
I’m sure you’ve all heard of Dalloway Terrace? It’s that beautiful restaurant that has a gorgeous flower wall in. It is located in the Bloomsbury Hotel not far from Tottenham Court Road station and totally lived up to expectations. Well except maybe Emily’s choice of breakfast which had a very strong orange taste.
I was offered several options for breakfast/brunch as they had gluten free bread. I could have gone for avocado on toast, an açai bowl or most of the egg options. But after much debating I chose eggs royale which for all of you needing to Google, is poached egg with salmon. Unlike some gluten free choices this did not disappoint, the bread was actually decent and even if it hadn’t of been the setting would probably have made up for it!
Tacos de Paso
Mexican is one of my favourite types of food and also one of my go to foods when I haven’t researched a gluten free option! True Mexican restaurants have tortillas made from corn flour making them gluten free without any substitute needed, this is the same for the chips which are also made from corn. There are a few great Mexican’s in London and Tacos de Paso is now added to that list.
It is located on the edge of London Borough Market and is one of those places that’s open late into the evening. When I ate there on a Saturday night, there was frequently a queue out the door waiting for a table. The staff were super attentive and food was fast meaning I didn’t have to wait long after the initial queue for a table, oh and the cocktails were also delicious.
I stumbled upon Drury by accident, I was wondering around Covent Garden and panicking because I hadn’t researched somewhere to get breakfast that would be gluten free. I did a quick search on my phone using my location and Drury came straight up as having gluten free options. The cafe was super cool with funky decorations and the most amazing array of cakes, which I’d like to note (some) were gluten free!
I decided to go for more of a substantial breakfast and much like at Dalloway Terrace was offered a good choice off the menu as they had gluten free bread. I opted for avocado on toast and then added a poached egg on top. It was a huge plate full and oh so delicious! I would certainly go there again. They also had a good range of vegan choices and super helpful staff for allergy advice.
