For those people looking for gluten free food, here are some findings from our latest trip.
We have been driving through Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium for approx a month. Stopping in various towns and cities, eating out each night and buying groceries for lunches and breakfasts etc.
As anyone who needs to eat gluten free would know, it can be challenging. we often spend at least half an hour each night wandering around checking out the menus in each town, looking for something suitable.
On this trip we found only a few restaurants that offered gluten free meals ( eg: italian pasta etc) as an option. it was by no means obvious on the menus ( believe me, we looked)
As for buying gluten free products at local supermarkets, it was very hit and miss. generally very poor. there was only one supermarket, Kaiser in Germany that had a reasonable range of things like bread/rolls and biscuits etc. Schar brand for example.
in contrast on a previous 2 month trip in Italy and France we often found supermarkets with gluten free products. Perhaps this was just being unlucky this time?
This is NOT a complaint ( I survived quiet well) but any information that others can add may help.
What countries/areas have you found the best for finding GF food and products?
