Until we found (drum roll, please) Gourmet Burger Kitchen!!! A place I had always avoided due to the whole burgers-come-in-a-bun assumption. However, GBK offer all their burgers without buns. Instead you get extra salad and coleslaw which is more than adequate. Our waiter was brilliant at checking the allergy folder and there were loads of options I could have. Hurrah! We have been back several times since that initial visit.
See? It pays to cater for the Coeliac.
Those who do make my life easy and allow me to enjoy my meal, safe in the knowledge I will not be suffering the side-effects of gluten in hours to come are rewarded with repeat business. (In no particular order) these are my favourite chains:
Gourmet Burger Kitchen
Loch Fyne Fish Restaurants
Oh, and should you find yourself in Scotland, the Ubiquious Chip, in Glasgow, and The Balgarth, in Ayr, are definately worth a visit.
