Very particular place of street food. They have various types of seafood, grilled fish, and soups. They tell you which dishes are gluten-free at the time of the order, but don’t have gluten-free bread, so if you’re used to eating it, take something with you to “accompany” the dishes. I had with me a focaccia that I had made the day before and it was perfect 🙂

In the square then there are various tables where you can put the dishes while eating standing.

Cozy Italian restaurant on the outskirts of town.

The cook is celiac and there is the possibility of having virtually the entire menu gluten-free, with options even lactose-free and egg-free. They make pizza, pasta, bread and cakes, all homemade by the excellent cook, as well as the owner of the restaurant. The desserts and ice cream are all gluten-free.

We ate really well: bread, homemade pasta, and desserts, all delicious, for a total of € 45.00. The gluten-free dishes have a supplement on the price of 1 or 2 euros.

This chain of restaurants, also present in Germany, Austria, and France, offers various gluten-free proposals, both sweet and savory, but we have to pay attention to the cross-contamination.

Exki with gluten-free options

All products have an indication of the various allergens, but unfortunately, some products are exposed along with those with gluten. In some stores, I found both sweet and savory gluten-free products stored in glass bells, separated from the rest, or closed in containers, so I could take something, while in others I couldn’t.

Therefore these places are suitable for those who have gluten sensitivity and don’t have to be careful about contamination, while for the celiac it’s good to look at the storage and ask the staff what products are safe.

Finally, we tasted the delicious handmade chocolate of Mary, the official chocolate of the Belgian royal house.

Almost all chocolates are gluten-free, just ask the sales staff to tell you the few chocolates containing gluten.

They also have nice gift boxes that you can pick up already made or have them fill up on the moment with the chocolates you prefer.

Mary Artisan Chocolatier

We took 4 boxes of chocolates, 3 to bring as a gift and one for us, for a total of € 75.00
