In the past, the question, “is this gluten free?” would have baffled most waiters, but now a gluten free diet is a more common option among Singaporeans.
A gluten free diet means consuming foods that do not contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.
Initially, people with gluten intolerance had to follow a gluten free diet or they would experience inflammation in their small intestines (ouch). However, now people choose a gluten free diet to enjoy benefits such as better bowel movements and weight loss.
So here’s our guide to eating the best gluten free food in Singapore!
Honestly, Crust Gourmet Pizza is the pizza that makes me feel less guilty when eating pizza. Their pizzas are made with the freshest, tastiest vegetables and the finest cured meats.
They also have gluten-free options for their sauces and toppings, but one would have to specify before ordering. And the best part— Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar delivers too, which means you can enjoy this gluten free meal in the comforts of your home.
2. Vegan Burg
A vegan burger may sound oxymoronic to meat lovers, but turning your nose up at Vegan Burg’s burgers would be a pity.
A must-try on the menu is the Smoky BBQ burger. Tucked between two fluffy gluten free organic buns are thick and succulent mushrooms slathered with vegan cheese and tangy BBQ sauce, layers of crunchy lettuce, fresh tomatoes and generous servings of pickles.
If you are starting a vegan diet, Vegan Burg is the place to visit.
At Entre-Nous Crepes, all crepes are offered in a gluten free buckwheat variety or organic wheat flour.
Personally, my favourite is the buckwheat crepe with flambéed scallops and creamy leek fondue. Savoury, yet not too heavy on the stomach, this meal is best paired with the artisanal French apple ciders served in the traditional “bolee”. Bon appétit, a la France!
Bread lovers out there who have to stick to a gluten free diet, rejoice! Presenting Jonathan’s, Singapore’s first purely gluten free kitchen, where the chefs pride themselves on having zero risk of contamination.
Currently, Jonathan’s are only taking online orders, but I guess that is a plus for you if you like your food delivered to your doorstep.
Going gluten free doesn’t have to mean going dessert free. At Delcie’s, gorge on organic, vegan and allergy friendly pastries.
Delcie’s even go the extra mile to cater menus specific to babies, the elderly, and people with wheat allergy. Perfect for throwing birthday parties and located just outside Boon Keng MRT.
Not gonna lie, I am an extremely lazy person (all my friends will concur), and travelling distance is one of the key factors when deciding where to eat.
Thankfully, The Soup Spoon is here to save the day. The Soup Spoon has 20 outlets islandwide at last count, and an outlet in most major shopping centres like Paragon, Jem, and Suntec City.
They have a detailed menu specifying calorie count, dietary preferences and chef recommendations to help you choose your feel good soup.
After a good meal, I’ll always look for desserts. If you can relate then may I suggest Brownrice? Their ice creams are made with brown rice (no surprise here), and are therefore low calorie and low GI.
Oh and their mudpies are simply heavenly. A scoop of ice cream and mudpie for me. Wait, make that two please!
I can hear my stomach growling already and it’s not even close to noon. Looks like it’s time for some gluten free ice cream! Do tell me what you think of these places in the comments below if and when you visit!
