Eating good quality gluten free food, mainly in Edinburgh
This weekend I visited Bia Bistrot on Colinton Road in Morningside for the first time since diagnosis four years ago. I had always loved the place and was thrilled to get a recommendation about its gluten free choices, so now was the time to give it a go.
I am usually too full for pudding but on being told that everything bar one item was gluten free, including three types of cake, what else could I do? I was glad I did and had an amazing apple and almond cake with butterscotch sauce and creme fraiche. What choices! I could have had other cakes including orange and polenta, fennel and almond, plus ice creams with sauce and something chocolatey. A truly brilliant spread.
Bia Bistrot serves interesting wine and the service is good. It’s a small place, but had atmosphere and a Saturday night buzz. It was a bit warm, but I can live with that based on the choice available from a high quality menu.
If you are looking for top whack food and just the finest GF around, give it a go!
