Hi, I'm about to travel to Dubai and London and am seeking suggestions for places (either supermarkets or restaurants/cafes etc) that have good gluten-free, vegetarian food. I will be travelling to:

cotswold
burton-on-the-water
upper slaughter
Broadway
Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire
london - borough markets
southbank london
Dubai

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Kate

You should check out Gluten-Free UAE. They are a great resource about all things gluten-free in the UAE and have a lot of information about Dubai. 

 

When you are in London, look for groceries in Tesco and Marks & Spencers. They both have their own gluten-free food line. In London, they call gluten-free "Free From" foods. Be sure to look for those.

Just check that it says free from gluten. I think 99% of products in free from ranges are gluten-free but I have on occasion seen something Free from that might just be dairy and soy freee for example. 

 

If you find yourself in Brixton Market, check out the gluten-free cafe. I wouldn't make a trip there speciifically to go to the bakery though. The food is great but they cook it all fresh so go to early and there won't be much choice.

 

Marks and Spencers are good- they have their own small gluten-free range but they also note on packaging of some of their regular ranges if it is gluten free.

 

I went to Borough Market  a day that only half of it was open, but there were stalls that did gluten-free.

Lots of cafes in England do jacket potatoes and you can pick the fillings. Not always ideal but a potato with some tomato and onion and cheese is better than nothing. Obviously just check that they haven't done anything strange to the potato- like coating it in flour.

In the UK, Sainsburys and Waitrose are other good stores which you find in most towns which also have free-from aisles, the bigger the branch, the better the choice available.

    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?    
    • https://okinawahai.com/tips-for-eating-gluten-free-in-okinawa/ Hope this helps!
    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.
