London – Day 7 ‘Hot breakfast and a gluten free restaurant’

As today marked the end of our trip to London I decided to finally have a hot breakfast. I ended up just having bacon and fried eggs on toast.

After storing our luggage at the Victoria Coach station, we took the Northern line to Angel and visited the restaurant Niche. It is the only 100% gluten-free restaurant in London.

London – Day 6 ‘Vegetarian Indian Food and the Borough Market again’

After visiting the ‘Old operating theater’ which I thought was an actual theater but turned out to be a museum about medical history, we had lunch on the borough market again.

After walking along the Themse from the Tower of London to Westminster we took the tube to Covent Garden and had Indian food at Sagar again.

London – Day 4 ‘More gluten free food and/on Broadway Market’

Today started with a nice surprise as there was a second gluten free cereal at the breakfast buffet.

Even though the drive there was horrendous the broadway market is worth it. Very full, but given all the amazing food you can get there it’s only logical that it’s packet. The market is a treat for  people with a gluten free diet.

London – Day 3 ‘Food at the hotel’

Even though there actually isn’t much I can write today, I shall post anyway. The hotel food is worth mentioning for it’s gluten free options and their ability to adapt.

We went to two museums that day, one of which was the British museum, and that takes up a lot more time than you’d think it would. At the end of the day you just don’t want to walk any further in the search for food.

London Day 2 ‘Borough Market’

The Borough Market is one of London’s most well-known food markets. For a good reason. The atmosphere is great and you can get so many different kinds of food there, from all over the world, I haven’t seen anything comparable yet.

You want something special? Turkish delight? French cheese? Croatian chocolate spread? Look no further than Borough Market.

London – Day 1 ‘Plane, Hotel, Food Market Kings Cross’

When you think of London as a person has to eat gluten-free you can only think about all the food you going to eat because there’s so much.

Well, today I arrived in London to find only five booths at the first food market we went to.  Disappointed we decided to go to a restaurant, but mainly found fast food places.

A setback in the search for food
Sometimes you have so many good experiences with eating gluten free in a restaurant in a row that you forget how much of a pain in the ass it really is when you search for food.

Yesterday I was unpleasantly reminded of it. After an exhausting day I tried to find something nice to eat that didn’t cost too much.

Selfmade gluten free Christmas Cookies
We have tried to use our old and loved recipe for cinnamon stars and make it gluten free. We tried it last year, we tried it the year before that and had no luck, but this year it finally worked!

Even as a last minute idea these gluten free christmas cookies are great, because they only need 30 minutes to be made, including both preparations and baking.

Pecans on the christmas market
In Germany everyone knows garrapinyades (nuts, usually almonds, which are roasted in a copper cauldron to end up with a crunchy sugary crust) But pecans? Caramelized? And then with spices? The Corinna Stieren delicacies manufactory sells them on the christmas  market.

The exotic nut snack is gluten free, lactose free and vegan. And a great snack, not only for the winter!
