gluten free restaurant Melbourne

Black Ruby, Carlton North

Why did it take me so long to come to Black Ruby? I’d been meaning to go for a while now, so when a good friend decided to have her birthday there I was looking forward to checking it out. What a gem! Very cute little restaurant with a cosy and friendly feel and the(…)

Spiga, Melbourne

Spiga is in the “laneways” section of Melbourne Central – kind of indoors, kind of outdoors. Nice atmosphere, good service, food was ok. Yes, just ok. Not an amazingly extensive menu with pastas, pizzas, salads, risottos and meat dishes (gluten free available for all) but enough choice to suit most people. The meals sounded a(…)

Red Salmon, Knox City

Gluten Shmooten Guest Review by Jade Want to grab a quick gluten free dinner before catching a movie at Knox City Village Cinemas? Then why not try Red Salmon Restaurant. Red Salmon is open all day, including breakfast when they have a Spanish omlette on offer. And for lunch and dinner there is an array(…)

Hacienda, Fairfield

This is a little Mexican restaurant in Fairfield that has been around for many years. Very casual setting with “Mexican” decorations (hats hanging from the ceiling, pinata style animals hanging up) – this is not really a place you come to for the surroundings! The service was variable depending on who served you. One lady,(…)

Nudel Bar, Melbourne

I used to go to Nudel Bar a lot when I worked in the area years ago. Last week, after finding out that Mamacitas, the new Mexican restaurant in the city doesn’t take bookings for under 8 people, I booked Nudel Bar for a girl’s catch up dinner. The atmosphere and menu was as I(…)

Vicolo, Moonee Ponds

Vicolo claims to be the first risotto bar in Melbourne, I don’t know if that’s true but it is certainly the first risotto bar I’ve ever been to in Melbourne, second in the world – if you’re ever in New York make sure you head to Risotteria, possibly the best gluten free restaurant I’ve ever(…)

Zingarella, Carlton

A few years ago you’d have buckley’s chance of finding any gluten free pasta on Lygon St…today it seems like every second restaurant is offering it, which is a good thing of course. Zingarella is one of the nicer restaurants where you won’t get accosted by someone out the front trying to convince you to(…)

Chocolate Buddha, Melbourne

Chocolate Buddha is smack bang in the middle of Fed Square, a hard location to beat. Nice casual place to go for a hearty meal. The tables are communal so it’s not a great place to go on a first date as you may be sitting in close proximity to strangers. But for a nice(…)

Olmecs, Richmond

I stumbled on this place when looking for a place to satisfy a cake craving on Friday night and discovered a really big gluten free menu! Don’t you love when that happens? I still only had a cake (they had a flourless orange cake) and hot chocolate but this is a place to put on(…)

Rice 'n Rolls, Melbourne

Rice ‘n Rolls is a Thai rice and noodle bar with 2 locations in Melbourne’s CBD – 33 Degraves St and 181 William St (CBW Building). I’ve only been to the William St one but every time I’ve been there has always been a massive queue, which is usually a sign that it’s pretty good!(…)
