NEW YORK - Gluten & Dairy free PARADISE!!!!

My favourite NY discovery - Lula's Sweet Apothecary - Vegan, Dairy free, Gluten free Brownie Sundae

New York City.  Let me firstly say that you won't need to bring any provisions to survive in this city - all you have to bring is yourself.  Yes - you heard me right - from my personal experience with a gluten free & dairy free sensitive tummy - I didn't once have to bring out my rice cooker to make sure I had a warm meal and not once did I have to smile through a chokingly dry cracker as a sad excuse for lunch.

If anything - you will have to exercise control because your choices are abundant.  But if you're there for a limited amount of time - why deprive yourself?  Life is just too short.

Because I didn't want to gloss over things - and I know how much I personally enjoy reading, seeing pictures and dreaming about food I can possibly eat - I've given a post to each place... They're by no means an exhaustive list because there was only so much I could fit into my belly!  I hope it helps some of you out there who plan to one day visit the Big Apple xx

  1. Thanks for your blog. We are visting NYC from Australia in September and my 15 year old daughter is a celiac. Great to see there are plenty of gluten free options for us to try.

  2. Hi Anonymous - you will have the most wonderful trip I'm sure - thank you so much for taking the time to write me a message xx It really brightens my day :) x

    1. Thanks Miss Lulu - I am keeping note all your recommendations so that when we go when can try and visit as many as we can. We have lots of great GF options here but it is going to be so much fun trying new places in a different country. My daughter is definately looking forward to it too. Thanks again for all the effort and time you have taken into creating this list - Grace

  3. Wow! What a great round up of gluten free places! I was in NYC a year ago and thoroughly enjoyed all the GF delights too :)
    I missed out on a few places though, so was great to read your write up on these, and so glad you had lots of dairy free options too :)
