11 Gluten-Free Eats Everyone In Melbourne Should Know About

Because no one wants a "burger" without the bun.

Posted on

1. Thomson Street Foodstore, Northcote

GF what? Crumpets! Fruit bread!

It's a well-known fact that coeliacs know no bounds when it comes to getting their hands on gluten-free goods. Personally, we'd climb mountains (or at least to residential Northcote) for Thomson Street's house-baked gluten-free fruit bread and crumpets.

2. Bowl Bowl Dumpling, Collingwood

GF what? Chicken dumplings.

Be just like your friends and eat dumplings at a restaurant! Puzzle them further and wash them down with a gluten-free beer.

3. Jimmy Grants, Fitzroy, CBD & Ormond

GF what? Souvas!

George C. knows what's urp. He puts chips in his souvas AND makes a mean gluten-free version that doesn't fall apart in your hands.

4. Saigon Sally, Windsor

GF what? All the desserts. Yes, ALL of them.

We don't know what twisted fate landed coeliac Felix Goodwin in the Saigon Sally kitchen, but we're forever grateful. Every single one of the desserts on the menu is gluten-free, including the Tira-me-Sally, lychee pannacotta and the mother flipping holy grail: vietnamese doughnuts with salted caramel and coconut sorbet.


6. Ladro, Prahran & Fitzroy

GF what? Pizza.

Take it from someone who's eaten a lot of crappy gluten-free pizza — Ladro's is some of the best.

7. Le Bon Ton, Collingwood

GF what? Fried chicken.

Let's just take a moment to appreciate all that Le Bon Ton has gifted us with. Including their 10/10 fried chicken, which can be done gluten-free on request.

8. Mero Mero, CBD

GF what? Brazillian cheese rolls.

Crispy on the outside, chewy and cheesy on the inside, these rolls are surely sent as little parcels from gluten-free heaven. And only $1 a pop.



GF what? Pies!

Take full advantage of their Degraves Street location and grab a veggie pie as you're passing through the city — their dahl, Kashmir and shepherd's pies are made with maize flour instead of wheat.

10. Fatto a Mano, Fitzroy

Via Facebook: Fatto-a-Mano-Organic-Bakery

GF what? Crostata, bread, pizza, pies and other baked goods.

So many options. Just make sure you get there before the lunch crowd snaps everything up — seriously, you do not want to have to deal with the anguish that comes with the last piece of crostata being sold before you get to the front of the queue.

11. Green Press, CBD

GF what? Bagels.

See also: gluten-free doughnuts. Oh yeah.
