Restaurant Reviews – Sydney
Have you ever gone for dinner at a restaurant, sat down and then realised that the only gluten free item on the menu is the garden salad? Take a look below at my reviews of coeliac and gluten intolerance friendly restaurants in Sydney to ensure you never have to eat a side salad for a main again!
True to my word in a recent post I visited Mamak in Chatswood for a second and third time to try the other gluten free dishes on the menu.
Once again I was happy that I could walk straight in and not have to queue for a seat, though the place was still buzzing with people.
Having tried the Nasi Lemak last time, I decided that I would try the satay skewers and the Sambal Udang (stir-fried tiger prawns with fiery sambal sauce).
The Sambal Udang is on the lunch specials list for $11.50 (from memory) and comes with rice and some shredded carrot More >
About every fortnight my old uni flatmate and I catch up over dinner in order to suppress the withdrawal symptoms we experience from not living together anymore!
When I was living over on the north side of Sydney we used to meet at Sushi on Stanley, a delicious and cheap sushi place in Darlinghurst. However when I moved over the other side of the bridge my friend suggested that we instead meet in Randwick as she knew a great sushi place there. Needless to say, we have been going to Ten Japanese Restaurant ever since.
Being coeliac I have to be quite careful what More >
I had always wanted to try Mamak in the city however never made it there and didn’t really fancy having to queue for hours outside. If you haven’t heard of Mamak it is a Malaysian restaurant which is renowned for having amazing food, hence the constant queue to get a seat!
I was therefore very excited to hear that Mamak was to be opening in Chatswood in Eat Street. In their own words, Eat Street is a new addition to the Chatswood eating scene, and is located at 1-5 Railway Street. To date the restaurants that have opened on ‘Eat Street’ are More >
We were treated to an office lunch yesterday to celebrate a few recent achievements. Everyone in our office likes Thai therefore it was decided we would go to Thai Naan on Victoria Ave in Chatswood.
Ten minutes after we were seated there was still no sign of menus so we had to go up and get them ourselves which wasn’t the best start. We then had to call them over to ask about gluten free options which also took awhile. It is very rare to be provided with a separate gluten free menu (I have only experienced this at Movida in Melbourne) however More >
I was invited out for dinner by a primary school friend who was visiting Sydney from NZ. We were going with a whole group of people and I didn’t find out where we were going until quite late on so wasn’t able to enquire about what I could eat.
When I got to dinner, at Cantina Bar & Grill, I found out that everyone was getting the set menu which could have posed a big problem for me. I quietly mentioned to one of the waitresses that I couldn’t have gluten and she noted that that was fine they would sort More >
