Eight Great Gluten Free Edinburgh Eats

As anyone else who has the misfortune of having been diagnosed with coeliac disease, a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity, or those healthy eaters (such as Gwyneth Paltrow) who decide to forgo gluten for the (suggested) benefits going without it brings, you’ll know that when it comes to dining out it’s not always a walk in the park.

Edinburgh – like every other place in the UK it seems – does have the usual pasta and pizza chains which offer gluten free versions - which is all good and well, however you can get quite fed up with the sometimes cardboard-y texture of the GF pizza base and let’s be honest, pasta isn’t the most exciting thing in the world. Having Pizza Express, Bella Italia, Amarone and Zizzi is convenient, but it’s nice to go somewhere with a more local, individual feel.

So here are eight places in Edinburgh where you can get some good, fresh, gluten free food:

1. Tuk Tuk

1 Leven Street, Edinburgh 

Tuk Tuk is an awesome Indian street food restaurant offering tapas – style dishes in a laid back stylish environment. Loads of their food is naturally gluten free and it’s great because you can try a few little dishes instead of having to stick with one choice. It’s BYOB, making their already inexpensive prices seem even more affordable.

2.The Mussel and Steak Bar

110 West Bow, Edinburgh

The Mussel and Steak Bar has two restaurants; one in the amazing Grassmarket, and one conveniently located on Jeffrey Street. Go there to try some of Scotland’s best local produce – have their famous Surf ‘n’ Turf to sample the home grown goodness from the land and the sea. Most of their food is naturally gluten free and they have at least one vegetarian option too.

3. The Roamin’ Nose

14 Eyre Place, Edinburgh 

The Roamin’ Nose is a lovely bar/restaurant with a really cool atmosphere. I’d emailed the manager before I went along for a big dinner party and when I got there she gave me my own little plate of oatcakes with the antipasti and bread for everyone else and told me if I could or couldn’t have each thing that was brought to the table. There’s not a huge choice in terms of options but it’s a great place and the food that is gluten free is super tasty and well made.

4. Indaba

3 Lochrin Terrace Edinburgh

If you want to try something different and delicious, go to Indaba. Most of their menu is gluten free and the staff have tonnes of knowledge about their menu and dietary requirements. They bring together flavours from Spain, South Africa and Venezuela and it doesn’t disappoint – on my last visit I ate crocodile and it was delicious!

1958447 10152039195367462 997973672 n

5.Tupiniquim

Green Police Box, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh

I LOVE THIS PLACE. The staff are awesome and the crepes are even more awesome. They’re all gluten free and you have them lactose free too if you like. They do sweet or savoury fillings and have different specials every day. There’s an amazing atmosphere around the converted old police box and especially during the Festival it’s always crowded and loud from music.

TUPPY

6. Café Andaluz

77B George St, Edinburgh

With one location in Edinburgh and two in Glasgow, Café Andaluz is an extremely popular Spanish tapas restaurant. Like Indaba there are loads of gluten free and vegetarian options and as they’re small dishes you can try lots.

Cafe Andaluz

7. Falko : Konditormeister

185 Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh 

The café is located in Bruntsfield and although there isn’t a great selection of gluten free savoury food, they always have a few amazing looking cake options.

falko-cake1

8. Burger

94a Fountainbridge, Edinburgh

It may not be the healthiest choice, but burgers are burgers and who can resist them?! It’s so great when you can go somewhere and order a burger WITH a bun. This American-style, chic version of a fast food restaurant where you can order a (proper) drink with your burger has many verities on its menu. Yum yum.

Book The Panoramic Penthouse @ Quartermile for May and have unlimited use of the private hot tub!

No-one ever promised Scottish weather would be good, regardless of the time of year, and it seems like recently we’ve experienced each of the four seasons at least once in Edinburgh! You’d never hear of anyone heading to Scotland with a suitcase full of swim suits and sun cream – but luckily we’ve got far more to offer than heat! We’re not saying that the weather is always bad though – last month for example in places the temperature reached a tropical 20°C!

Blossom Castle

Scotland’s rich culture and history makes it a wonderful and interesting place to visit and it’s an added bonus when we do get sunshine and warmth. As we can’t predict the weather for you, we’ve decided to offer something else much more luxurious for bookings made at The Panoramic Penthouse @ Quartermile this May. Sleeping up to six adults and three children, this stunning apartment is one of The Edinburgh Address’s most prestigious properties. Set over three floors and with three separate balconies, there’s exclusive use of the private hot tub on the roof terrace which would normally cost an additional £100 – when you book during May we are giving the use of the hot tub completely free! Imagine sitting in the hot tub, looking across the Meadows, whether it’s a fabulous sunny day or an atmospheric grey one, you’ll be warm and relaxed, in completely luxurious surroundings.

Panoramic Penthouse

So sit back and relax in your very own private hot tub, sip champagne, read a book, watch the world go by – and watch it somewhere you can really see everything. There is literally a 360 degree view of Edinburgh from the private roof terrace. So whatever you’re planning to do in May, plan to do it in Edinburgh.

May - The Month of Whisky

Where else in the world other than Scotland would you associate whisky with so strongly? The answer is no-where. Fine single malts, distilleries and whisky barrels are the epitome of Scottish heritage and culture, not to mention that it is one of our biggest and most valued exports.

FullSizeRender

As part of Scotland’s ‘Year of Food and Drink’, the month of May is being dedicated to the delicious cinnamon coloured liquid, celebrating Scotland as it’s place of origin. When thinking of Scotland, the image of a good dram, or a scotch on the rocks is easily conjured. ‘Uisge beatha' –  Gaelic for whisky, translating as the ‘water of life’ is as Scottish as kilts and Highlands cows are!

World Whisky Day is on the 16th of May – where better to celebrate it than in Scotland’s historical capital city – Edinburgh. Of course all over Scotland will be fabulous – the weather is beautiful at this time of year with the spring becoming summer – and whisky events are held all over, from the cities to the Highlands and Islands.  

IMG 1502

Celebrate whisky in the month of May with a visit to Edinburgh. Stay at one of our beautiful New Town Residences @ Northumberland Street and sample outstanding food paired with wonderful whisky in the world-famous Dining Room at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

65 Northumberland Street 9

Why not book into The Penthouse @ Royal Mile take a stroll along the famous High Street, from the castle to Holyrood Palace and pass Royal Mile Whiskies, The Scotch Whisky Experience and many more shops dedicated to whisky!

Causewayside 52

If you’re not into golf, how about being situated in perfect view of Arthurs Seat? Not an outdoor-lover? We’re sure bars and restaurants such as The Reverie where you can often catch live music or Sylvesters will persuade you that you need that relaxing city break this July!

City of Life & Culture

Edinburgh boasts a rich, deep history of culture and art intertwined in its grand architecture and winding streets. With its palaces, a medieval monastery, graveyards and unforgettably the castle, visiting Edinburgh is like talking a visual history lesson whilst being on an adventure. Add to this setting numerous parks including the famous Meadows and Bruntsfield Links, more trees and greenery than you could shake a stick at, one very long and windy canal, and of course the East coast-line, and you have one very beautiful city. On top of all of its natural beauty and historic architecture, Edinburgh is world famous for the festivals and cultural events which take part season after season, year after year.

Spring

Of course, there is the legendary Fringe Festival which takes place every August, enticing hundreds of thousands of people to watch the thousands of performers. Along with this we have the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo which is spectacular. But it’s the smaller, more discreet festivals and events which are approaching as spring turns to summer.

Royal Mile

From the 29th of April until the 10th of May is the TradFest Edinburgh, showcasing amazing traditional Scottish music, arts and crafts. Then we have the Imaginate Festival of arts for children from the 11th of May. At the end of May is the famous Edinburgh marathon which is expected to welcome over 30,000 participants! The Cycling Festival starts on the 11th of June, the Leith Festival starts on the 13th and the world-famous Edinburgh International Film Festival on the 17th of June. As if beautiful Edinburgh needed any extra magic added - the end of June and coming into July is Edinburgh International Magic Festival!

Castle

So what’s your excuse NOT to visit Edinburgh!?
