Traveling with a dietary restriction can be a challenge. It is hard to know which places can cater to your needs. You don’t want to end up at a restaurant with only one gluten free meal on the menu, or worse yet, a restaurant with zero possibilities. Therefore, to help point you in the right direction, 10Best has put together a list of the best restaurants in Amsterdam that offer gluten free options.
Haesjes Claes and Restaurant Lieve, for instance, provide a completely separate gluten free menu. Some restaurants are simply gluten-free friendly, such as Piqniq, a cozy café that offers gluten free sandwiches, soups, salads and desserts, and Seasons, where the menu clearly states which dishes contain gluten and which do not. Places like Omelegg and De Kas, on the other hand, prepare dishes gluten free upon request.
If you plan to cook in one night, there are a few things you’ll need to know before going grocery shopping. “Gluten free” translates to “gluten vrij” in Dutch. Many products will bear a symbol, indicating they, in fact, do not contain gluten. This symbol comes in handy, especially for products such as yoghurt, cereal and biscuits. You can always read the allergy information, “allergie informatie” in Dutch, and look for the word “gluten.” Shop at stores such as Albert Heijn, Bio Mart and Super de Boer.
