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 that I would love it and that no matter what I had to try the nachos. Now as mentioned in my last post I am not a big fan of Canadian nachos due to the lack of toppings, however the ones at Nourish have 27 ingredients More >
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 Elk and Oarsman on a Tuesday night for steak night. The first time I went I got my steak on gluten free bread however they charged me $3 extra for this so from then on I have just asked for no bread. It’s a bit hit More >
Earls is one of my favourite places to eat dinner in Banff and it was a winner with my family when they came and visited too. It looks quite fancy and therefore the first time I went there I expected it to be rather expensive. However I was plesantly suprised, it has a great atmosphere, reaonsable prices, great service and a gluten free menu.
All three times I have been to Earls I have ordered the Los Cabos Chicken Tacos (two grilled white corn tortillas, spiced tomato poached chicken, melted cheddar and jalapeno jack cheese, avocado corn salsa, shredded lettuce and cabbage, honey lime More >
Phil’s is an American style diner open for breakfast and lunch in Banff. I had been told by a few people that it wasn’t that great but a couple of friends and I decided to test it out for brunch any way.
My first impression was that it probably hasn’t changed much since it opened in the early 1960′s, however it was cosy so I didn’t mind!
I wasn’t holding high hopes that they would have gluten free options as I found it very hard to find gluten free options in the US. I was therefore plesantly suprised to find they had More >
The first time I went to Kicking Horse we walked into Eagle’s Eye Restaurant and pretty much walked straight back out. You see working in the ski industry in Banff doesn’t pay too well and Eagle’s Eye looked like an expensive fine dining restaurant. We ended up eating at Whitetooth Grill at the bottom of the gondola where the chef prepared me a gluten free chicken salad.
The second time we went to Kicking Horse it was a special occasion, our last team outing before our manager left, so we decided we would splurge and eat in Eagle’s Eye restaurant. Eagle’s More >
I have to admit I didn’t do a huge amount of cooking whilst I was in the US. For the first two months, while working at a summer camp, all of my meals were cooked for me. Then I started traveling and since I wasn’t staying in one place for more than four nights there wasn’t much point stocking up on supermarket items.
While in the US I came across two chains of supermarkets which are awesome for those that have dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. Those supermarkets are Trader Joe’s and Wholefoods.
Both supermarkets label items that More >
