Chans- Bristols Finest GF Chinese Take Out

Who doesn’t love a good take out every now and then, either as a cheeky treat or because quite frankly you cannot be bothered to cook.

These cravings do not however do not disappear when you are Gluten Free, for a while I basically tried my luck, getting glutened just over 50% of the time, a bit like playing Russian roulette to be honest.

That was until I found out about Chans which is based at the end of Henleaze on Wellington Hill and has a fairly large delivery radius. Continue reading

Variety is the spice of life- GF Lunch at Friska

Today a friend asked me if I wanted to meet up for a catch up at lunch. I jumped on the offer to have something other than my standard jacket potato and tuna from my works canteen, pretty much the only GF option.

As I don’t have a full hour break due to being on a phased return to work, I needed something quick and most importantly had a non potato GF option. So Friska on Victoria Street it was. I had been there many times before I was GF and all their food is super tasty and I thought, it is just the sort of place that would have GF options (And I was right!). Continue reading

Agrazingly good steak- A GF review of Graze (Bath)

Graze BathSo for my birthday the day after I was take to The Ox in Bristol (Link), I was taken to Graze in Bath (Link) by my parents, again it was a surprise so I was a little anxious as I couldn’t phone ahead.

We got to Graze and it is beautiful, unlike the Ox which is stunning in a probation era styled, Graze was wonderfully light and airy, and an amazing outside area. It is located right next to the train station so is very easy to get to even if you don’t live in Bath. Continue reading

Oxtraordinary -GF Review of The Ox (Bristol)

Steak is kind of my boyfriend and my thing. In our opinion you really cannot beat a good steak.The Ox (Bristol)

So for my birthday he booked The Ox (Link) as a surprise, I knew he was taking me out but had no idea where so I was feeling a little anxious as I had recently be accidentally glutened whilst eating out and hadn’t been able to call ahead etc to check there were options.

When we arrived outside the restaurant I was so excited I had wanted to go to The Ox since its opening last year, it is re known for its fabulous stakes and cocktails (which is to be expected as it is twined with the Milk-thistle). Continue reading

Gluten Free – Travel / Restaurant cards

Gluten Free Restaurant Card EnglishI have only been GF for a couple of months, during which I have not been on holiday or travelled abroad (Which I love doing).

The thought of having to explain to someone in a restaurant overseas what I can and cannot eat is a little bit daunting, since it is often hard enough explaining to restaurants here my requirements (often getting very blank looks).

But a luck has it I have stumbled across these super useful cards that you can take on your travels (or even use the English one to uneducated restaurants over here). You can download them in the following 54 languages (Click on language you want to access the card): Continue reading
