Frankie & Benny’s Gluten Free Review

If you’ve ever gone to the cinema in a mall or attend a pre–teen birthday party, chances are you would have come across a Frankie and Benny’s.

Authentically Italian via Noo Yoik, Frankie and Benny’s has a super sized menu that’s the size of a book. I’m not kidding. It’s literally a book, packed full of all kinds of pizzas, pastas, burgers, steaks, grills, sandwiches and wraps, waffles and brownies. In other words, a no-go area for a coeliac. Until now!

So do Frankie & Benny’s do gluten free food?

Recently Frankie and Benny’s have introduced a gluten free menu.

Celia & Clive: A gluten free match made in heaven

I know we’ve talked about CELIA gluten free lager on this blog before. If you haven’t tried it yet, where have you been? It’s the only brewery in the world that uses saaz hops, a protected variety. And it has an amazing clean and refreshing flavour with a subtle sweet taste at the end. The other half is a big craft beer lover. And he’s a big fan of CELIA. And it’s not just him. CELIA picked up the award for best gluten free beer at 2013’s Free From Awards. Not bad considering it only launched last year!

CELIA lager is also fantastic with food. So when we heard that CELIA had joined with Clive handmade pies for a one night stand at Vozars in Brixton, we hot footed it to one of our favourite gluten free restaurants in south London.

Rossopomodoro Verace Gluten Free Pizza

Have you noticed that a lot of the chains like Prezzo and Pizza Express are doing gluten free pizzas these days? And most of the time they’re not bad.

But if you want a gluten free pizza that has a real taste of Naples about it I can highly recommend checking out Rossopomodoro. There are currently six Rossopomodoro restaurants in London – we went to the one in Wandsworth – and one in Birmingham but hopefully more will be coming soon. Read the rest of this entry »

Vozars: A Gluten Free Haven in the Heart of Brixton Village Market

Vozars Gluten Free Slow Roast Chicken

Sometimes you enjoy food at an eatery that’s so damn delicious you almost don’t want anyone else know to know about it in case it becomes really popular and you never get a seat there again. That’s what I thought after visiting Vozars gluten free restaurant in Brixton Village market in south west London at the weekend.

We’d come across Vozars before as Ben and his team had kindly sent us some gluten free beer to try before Christmas. CELIA Lager is a premium organic, gluten free lager from the Czech Republic, which is now available via numerous stockists and of course served at Vozars.  (Just for the record, CELIA Lager was tested by the other half who’s a real speciality beer drinker and a gluten lover and he thought it was great. “Light, refreshing and you’d never know it was gluten free.”)

So when a friend and I found ourselves having a mooch around Brixton Market at the weekend we thought we’d check out Vozars for a spot of lunch. Read the rest of this entry »

Gluten free tapas at La Tasca

I’ve been to La Tasca in Kingston a number of times, and always found a few dishes I can eat. But in the last few months their menu has had a bit of an overhaul courtesy of their in-house executive chef Antonio Bennett, and it’s now even more gluten-free-friendly, with an additional 18 authentic gluten free tapas dishes being added to the menu.
