Is it time for a restaurant roundup again?
 People happy to share where they've eaten lately that's been good, indifferent and less than stellar?

I'd love to hear about some new places (I live in the wheatbelt - I know a coeliac who married a wheat farmer ha ha) and try somewhere different... and hear how some of the old haunts are tracking...

  Hi Everyone!

I'm a little bit excited about this forum, Its so nice to read about other people's gripes living Gluten Free lives and finding it hard outside the home. My question to you all is:

What are the top 3 things you look for when eating at a Gluten Free cafe or restaurant?

Mine are:

Variety (i'm sick of salad), Affordability and serving size.

I went to a cafe and got the GF version of the panini and it was a third of the non-gf serving size!! I was gutted!

The Imp - Vic Park

Hi everyone, I'm new to all of this forum stuff.
I've been to The Imp quite a few times over the last few months and the food is just amazing! About 2/3 of their tapas menu is GF or can be adapted to be GF and it is all fan-freakin-tastic! They also have a several hand made GF desserts and I can highly recommend the chocolate fudge muffin warmed up with a little icecream - you wont be dissapointed!
The menu does change so the web may not be 100% up to date www.theimp.com.au

Dealing with chefs and wait staff
Generally most places I've been have been pretty good when I request something gluten free if there's nothing on the menu. I tend to go to small owner-run local places, and Vic Park has been exploding in the number of small breakfast/lunch/tapas places that are now open. I'll do a separate entry on that later.

But when I read this article yesterday, I was disappointed with the chef's attitude towards gluten free requests (in the last section). stickykitty, you used to be a chef, is this common?


This healthy option is usually made by boiling instant oats in water but I like to do it a little differently. Instead of water cook it in the pan with milk in place of water and the end result is less gluey and more flavourful. The good thing about oats is that they are a low GI and help lower cholesterol re-absorption. The most stupid thing a customer ever asked was if porridge was gluten free?! Any product containing wheat, rye, barley or oats is not free of gluten, especially oats!

Try some of these variations to make an otherwise bland breakfast exciting.
• Banana, honey & walnut
• Grated fresh apple, cinnamon & sultanas
• Forrest berries & maple syrup
• Fresh strawberry, toasted almond flakes & honey

I hope this excites your taste buds but if you are on a diet or have an allergy to gluten ,eggs, dairy or nuts… or if you are vegan… or just plain fussy, then the only option left on today’s menu is a suggestion from my waiter friend: ‘A glass of water and a big gulp of air!’

More Gluten Free Takeaway

Grill'd - Mt Lawley (and all round Australia)
Grill'd have awesome burgers, salads and chips, pretty much everything is gluten free except the regular buns and panini (but they have a gluten free bun) and the sweet chilli sauce. Check their FAQ's on the website for full info. It's all pretty healthy too.

Jus Burgers - Leederville & Subiaco
Jus Burgers do a gluten free bun (not as good as Grill'd though), and their burgers are pretty delicious. Unfortunately my favourite is the pumpkin burger which isn't GF. :(


Stones Pizza - North Perth
Stones are still my favourite GF pizza shop.

Little Caesars - Leederville & Mundaring
They have a great range of pizza toppings here, and really interesting and delicious combinations. Their GF pizza base is pretty damn good, and always made fresh daily.

Kassem's Pizza - Kewdale
Kassem's say they do a GF base, but to be honest I haven't tried it yet. I get these flyers in the mail because I live nearby.

Il Padrino Caffe - Northbridge
Il Padrino's is an Italian restaurant that has been around forever. They recently moved from William St to James St. They have gluten free pizza and beer on their menu, and when I walked past I noticed a sign on their window saying they have gluten free pasta.

Margherita's Pizza - Fremantle
In the Old Shanghai Foodcourt. Gluten free pizza bases available.

Fish & Chips

Carlisle Fish & Chips - Carlisle
All their fish is cooked in GF batter. There are some items on their menu which are not GF, but they'll tell you about them if you ask.

Franchises + Gluten Free
Here's just a list off the top of my head of chains that have gluten free options (so they should have a shop close to most people):

Both Dominos and Eagle Boys give the option of a gluten free base - just make sure you have a look at what sauces and toppings have gluten in them.

Almost all of the sauces at Fit Chips are gluten free (with clear labelling, so you'll know which ones to stay away from).

Muffin Break have a wide range of yummy gluten free muffins.

The Cookie Man has (at the time of posting) Milk Chocolate Chunk and White Choc, Macadamia & Apricot gluten free cookies.

At Nando's all the chicken breasts, legs, steaks and tenderloins are gluten free. Also, all the salads with trio of bell peppers dressing, rice and corn on the cob are gluten free. You can choose to replace a chicken meal's serving of chips with rice to make it GF.

Mexican and Indian are relatively safe restaurants to visit, so long as you stay away from flour tortillas and the breads/pastries. Almost every Indian restaurant I have visited have used gluten free thickeners in their meals, but just check. As with Mexican, corn tortillas are gluten free so there's a fair amount of choice (although you might want to confirm).

I'm not the biggest fast food fan, but when my friends are endulging it sucks to be left out, so...
McDonalds: the chips and hash browns, honey mustard, tomato sauce & ranch sauces, garden salad with italian dressing, and all drinks EXCEPT iced coffee are gluten free.
McCafe: Chocolate and raspberry friands, GF triple choc fudge cookies, GF white choc chunk & macadamia cookies, almond and orange loaf are gluten free. Beware of the drinks there because a lot have gluten in them (incl. soy milk) so your best option is a coffee or black tea.
Hungry Jacks: the chips and hash browns, garden salad with french dressing and all sundaes (only in WA) are gluten free. If you can be bothered stressing that a burger must be freshly created without ever touching a bun, then all the burgers except for the Angus and Vegie Burgers will be gluten free.
Chicken Treat: only the coleslaw, peas, roast potatoes and corn cobettes are gluten free. I can only assume Red Rooster is much the same.
KFC: Nothing is gluten free.

And the most important place in my opinion (although no longer with the Whitford City store)... Alternative Bites in Garden City. Everything is gluten free - breads, sausage rolls, pies, muffins, cakes, pizza bases, quiches, buns etc - and is really yummy. Since I live so far away from there, I just order it all frozen and stock up.

Current Mood: hungry

Sensations En Ardross
Great for Breaky or lunch, food was the best Gluten Free I have eaten out.    If you haven't already tried it, make sure you do, the chicken wrap was to die for.

Pizza, pasta, cakes, etc
Hi everyone!
I haven't posted here before but have been watching the community and recently tried Stone's Pizza because it was recommended here. I'd recommend it too - the pizza bases were pretty good and the toppings were fabulous!

I also recently read a review for Al Sito online. Gluten free pizza for $3.50 extra and gluten free pasta for $2 extra? I'l give that a go! Glad I did too - the gluten free pasta was lovely. I'll be going back to try the pizza.

Fresh Provisions in Mt Lawley is also fabulous. I bought a gluten free carrot and walnut cake there to take to work for my birthday last week and it was very nice. They also have biscuits, bread, crackers, etc

Well I was at my local IGA and saw a mag called Australian healthy food guide at the checkout, normally I wouldn't bother but the words "gluten-free" sprung out so I picked it up and bought it.

Most of it is the usual healthy eating stuff but there is a few ads for gluten free food etc.. i'm about to look. Might update again if I find some interesting things!
