Live in New Zealand or going to visit? Have a look at my reviews of products, restaurants and cafe’s in New Zealand to find out where and what to eat!
I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for many years.
However the other day my friend and I needed to catch a quick bite to eat in London before heading to a musical so we decided to visit Wagamama.
When greeted by the host I asked him if there was a gluten free menu and More >
I was recently asked what gourmet chocolates (that you can buy in the supermarket) are gluten free and I have to say I didn’t really know. Which got me thinking, there are probably a lot of people out there who want to know the same thing, especially when wanting to give their gluten free friends a little prezzie.
After standing in the chocolates isle of Coles and reading the back of every box of chocolates (aren’t I nice doing this for you ) I have put together a list of the safe (aka gluten free) options:
- Lindt Lindor white
While most of the More >
Waiheke Island is a cute island 14km by ferry from Auckland, NZ. The reason I call it cute is it has a number of amazing wineries, boutique shops and views to die for. For many years as a child I remember cycling from the ferry terminal to Stonyridge Vineyard to have lunch for my aunties birthday. This time for my visit I didn’t bring along a bike however I did do a fair bit of walking around the island!
After I had eaten my home make sandwich for lunch I was craving something sweet and refreshing and was therefore very happy More >
While in Auckland I visited Lone Star in Newmarket for dinner. My friend checked in advance and found that the gluten free dishes were labeled on the menu and others could be made gluten free.
Lone Star is a cowboy themed pub type restaurant, though it is quite a lot more expensive than your basic pub. It is dimly lit with pictures all over the walls.
There was only one gluten free item labeled More >
While in New Zealand recently for a friends wedding I tried a number of local products. Here are my reviews of the stand-out ones:
My aunt bought some mixed berry Piako gourmet yoghurt which I decided to have for breakfast one morning.
The yoghurt was very tasty and I had to control myself from eating the whole container in one go!
When choosing a tub of ice-cream for dessert, I decided to try a local brand and flavour, Killinchy Gold’s manuka honey and almond ice cream.
The icecream was delicious, full of flavour with lots of almond More >
I was meeting an old school friend for lunch while visiting Auckland for a friends wedding and came across Constant Cravings in Epsom (on the Coeliac New Zealand website). The blurb mentioned that they offer a number of gluten free options including sweet and savoury muffins, pumpkin, date, ginger & maple syrup scones, slices, friands, salads, risotto cakes, frittata, and quiches.
When I arrived I asked the ladies what was gluten free and they said everything but the sandwich. I was so excited but there were so many options it was hard to choose. In the end I decided on the pumpkin More >
