In Topic: I Need Info On Restaurants On Italy, France And Spain

You definitely must go to Des Si et Des Mets in Paris. Its a completely gluten free restaurant and its delicious! If you google it, you'll be able to find the website. My only struggle in France was that while they understood what I was saying, just the concept of not being able to eat bread was astounding to them. Pas du baguette? C'est Dommage! I would get such pitiful looks because they felt sorry for me! I ate a lot of omlettes and ham & cheese salads. It is difficult to find things like gluten-free bread, crackers, snack food, etc so stock up when you find it. Health stores are best. There's a big one with a large selection of gluten-free food at the south end of Rue Mouffetard in the 5th Arr. If you go to the website for Schaer (a European gluten-free manufacturer) you can type in cities and it gives you a list of places that sell their products. You could also write to the Celiac associations of the countries you are visiting. I always do that when I travel and they always send me lots of good info.


Oh yes, I have heard of Des Si et Des Mets. I will visit it for sure!
And thank you very much for the Health store recommendation. I will visit that place too!
Someone has handed me some directions in Italy so I guess I have less problems than before...

But still, may I ask for more restaurant adresses? :)

Oh, yes, I know about Des si et des Mets! And I will definitely visit the store on Mouffetard, too!
Do you happen to know of any other places in Paris in which I could eat without much problems?

OH, I forgot to mention, I'm asking for restaurant adresses because the trip won't be very long, but we'll still have a tight agenda/travel plan.

I don't think we'll have time to do much shopping, let alone a place to cook.
We will mostly move on hotels. On Spain we won't have much problems because we will stay on an apart-hotel, but elsewhere I'm in trouble - it doesn't help that I can't speak italian or french...
