Gluten-Free Eating In Las Palmas

Spain is not a difficult place to be gluten-free.

The Hotel

In the hotel, I only are breakfast, which usually consisted of fruit juice, eggs, ham, cheese and coffee.

There was no gluten-free bread, as you can get in most three or four stars hotels these days.

But that I can do without.

Snacks

I did take about ten EatNakd bars and M&S Honeycomb Crisps, but Ialso found some Spanish bars, that were labelled Gluten-Free in large letters.

They would have done at a pinch.

I also had a couple of good salads.

Balalaika

I ate in this restaurant on Monday night.

The restaurant had the best allergy-friendly menu, I’ve ever found. Not from a point of the food, but from the way the information was presented.

For gluten-free food, I just avoided any item with a large red dot, with a gluten sign in the middle.

Kitchen Lovers

I ate here on the Tuesday night.

I’d been pointed to the restaurant by Lonely Planet’s guide to the Canary Islands (p 74)

It’s all, they say it is.

I didn’t book, but then November wasn’t busy in Las Palmas.

It was one of the best restaurants, I’ve eaten at in Spain. You have to remember that C and myself tried quite a few.

I paid 33 euros for two courses and a glass of wine.

I could spend that in say Carluccios in Leeds!

Restaurante Molinet

I ate here on Wednesday night after seeing the gluten-free sign on the facia.

It is a restaurant to watch, as it had mixed reviews, so it could go either way.

But at least it serves gluten-free San Miguel lager.

I wish them lots of success.

If you have to be gluten-free like me, you won’t starve in Las Palmas.
