    179 Enmore Road, Enmore NSW 2042, Australia 2042

    Cheap and cheerful, with nice covered outdoor seating as well as indoor. Fantastic hummous, although sadly they don't have any GF breads to eat it with. Warning: some dishes may come with pita bread that is not mentioned on the menu. Specify no pita bread just in case.Does delivery and take-out as well as sit-down.

  • The Island Bar

    Cockatoo Island Camping, Cockatoo Island NSW 2000, Australia 2000

    A surprisingly chic place to come for pizza, salads, and drinks, even if you aren't also touring the historic parts of the island. Fantastic views of downtown Sydney. GF base available for pizza, but cross-contamination is possible from the wood oven. A bit pricey for what you get, but you can't beat the location, and it's just about all there is to eat on the island that's GF.

    Very tasty food for a chain! The texan with us approved heartily. Make sure to check out the free salsa bar, especially if you're finding the default spicing too mild. Those salsas are not mild! GF options are marked on the printable menu online.Has locations across Australia.

    205 Enmore Road, Enmore NSW 2042, Australia 2042

    Large portions for very reasonable prices for this area. Their veggie breakfast kept me going all day! Has tasty GF toast. Try the small room at the back, past the kitchen, if you want a bit more quiet.

    103-107 Errol Street, North Melbourne VIC 3051, Australia 3051

    Open for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Very good food and coffee beverages (try the coffee soda, and be sure to squeeze in the lime slice!), but be prepared for a long wait at peak brunch times, especially if your group has more than four people.

    1 St Heliers Street, Abbotsford VIC 3067, Australia 3067

    This is a low-service place -- grab a plate and help yourself from the buffet, which has four of five dishes, mostly curries and salads. All dishes are clearly marked GF or not. Lines can be long at peak hours. Go ahead and get more of whatever you like -- then pay what you can on the way out by dropping your donation in the box.Also has locations in St Kilda, Footscray, Preston, and Sydney.

  • Suzy Spoon's Vegetarian Butcher

    Informal cafe with sandwiches, burgers, and pasta. Also does breakfast. Has GF bread, buns, and pasta. Breakfast came with very tasty GF toast. Also has vegan "meats" for sale.

  • Sister of Soul

    73 Acland Street, St Kilda VIC 3182, Australia 3182

    Excellent food with plenty of GF options for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The Green Sister Stir-Fry was especially tasty! All dishes are vegetarian or vegan; also has garlic & onion free and raw dishes.

  • Mad Mex

    Level 2, Dining Hall, Melbourne Central, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia 3000

    This is a chain with locations throughout Australia. They have several GF options -- the naked burritos, the nachos, and two kinds of tacos (all marked GF on the menu). The food is edible. It's good in an emergency when you just need to get something, anything, to eat.

  • The Mint

    318 William Street, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia 3000

    A bit on the pricier side, but very tasty food that made the (non-GF) vegan and the GF vegetarian very happy! The roasted beetroot & quinoa salad was especially tasty, as were the roasted nuts.

  • Wrapped Burrito Bar

    3 starsDecember 01, 2014

    Västra Hamngatan 9, 411 17 Gothenburg, Sweden 41117

    As you might expect from the one and only burrito bar in Goteborg, the food isn't spectacular. I skipped the fajita veggies because they looked boiled to death. But you can get any burrito as a bowl (therefore without a tortilla) for 75 kr, which is a good deal for lunch or dinner in Sweden. No English menu, but staff spoke English well. I didn't ask if the nachos were gluten-free, but they looked like corn chips, so it's possible.

  • Restaurang Manana

    5 starsDecember 01, 2014

    Lasarettsgatan 6, 411 19 Gothenburg, Sweden 41119

    This is a tapas restaurant, so you order several small plates to have yourself and/or share with your companions. The portions were a little smaller than I'm used to from tapas restaurants in North America, but all the things I ate were very tasty.The staff all spoke English very well, and there was also an English menu available. When I asked my waitress which desserts were gluten-free, she checked with the kitchen and said all but the apple tart.I had the garlic mushrooms, baby potatoes with aioli, grilled halloumi, and chocolate truffle with espresso flan (yummy, although it was nothing like a flan -- more like fudge!).

    Any crepe can be made with their gluten-free buckwheat batter. I had a savory crepe and a sweet one, and the crepe batter worked well with both. If you're wondering if you really got the gluten-free one, you can check the color -- it's noticeably darker (and thinner) than the regular version.Not sure whether they have a dedicated pan for GF crepes.

  • Sea Dog Brew Pub

    2 A Street, Hull, MA 02045

    I went here with a group of friend with widely varying dietary needs -- including a vegan and a person on the paleo diet -- and they were able to feed all of us reasonably well. I had the veggie burger on a gluten-free bun, which was okay. My friends seemed very happy with their food.They have GF buns for their burgers and GF dough for the flatbreads, which is nice. None of the deep-fried foods are on the GF menu, presumably because they don't have a dedicated fryer.Sit on the patio if it's a nice day -- it's got a lovely view of Boston across the water.

    Update: driving by recently, it looks like this location is closed. If you find yourself in Coolidge Corner looking for GF food, I recommend Paris Creperie!

    Their gluten-free buckwheat crepe is almost identical in taste and texture to a regular crepe -- so tasty!

    A bit pricey for fast food, but very tasty! Anything that's not made with a flour tortilla is GF, including their house-made tortilla chips. They do warm their corn tortillas on the same warmer as the wheat ones, but if you ask they'll use a separate warmer.

    Mediterranean food (falafel, shawarma, kafta, and so on), so lots of GF options. Both the white and brown rice are safe (no little noodles!), as are both of the available toppings (okra sauce or beans). Great place to get a cheap, quick, safe lunch!

    Excellent upscale vegan bistro with a dedicated gluten-free menu. Perfect for a special night out! I particularly like the grilled romaine heart salad and death-by-chocolate cake.

    They have a "gluten-sensitive" menu and have always been very responsive to diet/allergy concerns on my visits.

    605 Kendall St, Cambridge, MA 02142

    Tasty Mediterranean food! The falafel plate is reliably GF, and you can also assemble a GF-meal from their numerous veggie dishes ("vegetarian three choices" and "vegetarian five choices"). Fries are also safe, as they are the only thing fried in that oil. Stay away from the rice, though, as it has wheat noodles in it. Also, sometimes the greek salad is contaminated with a small amount of tabouleh, unfortunately.

    Extremely tasty falafel! Everything in the restaurant is GF -- except the pita bread, of course. This is also a great place to get fries that are 100% safe (i.e., have not been fried in the same oil that is used for breaded food).

    This is one of my go-to places for a tasty GF meal. Their GF crust is very good -- in fact, my boyfriend thought it was tastier than their regular crust! They also have GF desserts, although I don't think they list them on the menu. Very busy on weekend evenings though -- they don't take reservations, but you can call ahead to put your name on the list.
