Sugar Lounge, Manly Beach
This was another daily deal site purchase – a voucher for a meal at Sugar Lounge at Manly Beach. A couple of friends and I headed down one sunny Sydney day to indulge in some fancy food and drink (well fancier than most of my dining out choices).
First things first – cocktails! I went for the Sangria Royale which is a sangria of white wine, lychee nectar, passion fruit & mint. It was delicious and refreshing – perfect for the day.
With the voucher we got 1 entree to share, 1 main each and a dessert platter to share. For the entree we went for the crisp pork belly bites with jalapeno apple puree. Let’s just say that we were almost licking the plate at the end!
Then it was time for mains. I had a little trouble deciding what I wanted but I decided to go for the meatballs in sauce with a side of potato (there was some fancy name for this but it is no longer a main option so not sure what it was called!). Once again the main was delicious.
Then it was time for dessert – we chose the dessert platter which had ice cream on it that I could eat. It was a nice light way to finish of the meal.
There is some outside seating so if it is a nice day (and you can get a seat) I would suggest sitting outside. Inside is a bit dark but the decor is funky.
You can check out Sugar Lounge at 42 N Steyne, Manly or find out more information on their website.

I’m back… and I am going to start making up for my absense with this amazing recipe for gluten free banoffee pie. Since moving to London I haven’t done much baking except when I went through a phase of making gluten free banana bread (recipe to come). However more recently I moved house and my

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

Just when you thought there could not be anymore restaurants in Banff with gluten free options. I have one more for now… and it’s a good one. It took me 10 months of living in Banff and finally in my last month of living there I got around to visiting Nourish. I had been told

I absolutely love Mexican food. The great thing about Mexican is that they often use corn tortilla’s and if not they usually at least have them as an option. So it is not surprising that after the first visit to Baja Cantina in Glebe, where they give you the option of corn or flour tortilla’s,

As I have mentioned before there are a number of places with gluten free options in Banff, and The Elk and Oarsman Pub & Grill is no exception to this. I was very excited to find that The Elk & Oarsman actually have a separate two page (!!) gluten free menu. I usually go to the

There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it. The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time

One night I had planned to make the chickpea curry I saw on Scandi Foodie’s blog however I left the recipe at work (and I didn’t have internet at home at the time) so I had to put my thinking cap on to try and remember the ingredients for this recipe. Then I realised that

I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really

I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack. You can buy the rice paper sheets from
