Warning to intolerant and allergic to gluten! If you are in Barcelona know that you can enjoy one of the best offers for coeliacs of the entire national scene. In Catalonia alone there are more than 8,000 celiacs who, when they eat out of the house, need a place to cook without wheat, dishes made with gluten-free cereals. A range of tasty possibilities. There are 100% gluten free establishments, and others that combine dishes for celiacs and conventional, although many others are still clueless and are able to put bread to dip in a gluten-free dish. But since these types of restaurants are not always easy to find, at Aerobús we show you some of our favorites.
In this place, Josep Conesa has served almost the entire gluten-free menu for seven years. The bread, made with corn and egg, comes directly cut from the oven, and the genus is roasted on a separate plate. Here the celiacs can eat a sandwich of chistorra, peppers and salsa brava outside the house. They compensate for the lack of taste of gluten-free foods with a menu of more than 40 cold and hot gluten-free snacks, as tasty as one of escalivada with gratin cheese. Also, avoiding gluten costs one euro.
Il Piccolo Focone
If you are a fan of pizzas, this will be one of your favorite places in Barcelona. They offer 30 pizzas for coeliacs and fifteen fresh pasta dishes, dried or stuffed, as well as risottos and desserts. His cook, Eloy Caicedo bakes pizzas made with wheat flour, buckwheat and potato starch. Of appearance their pizzas seem authentic Neapolitan, but they are light, crunchy and not gummy. Delicious.
Messié Sin Gluten
Without leaving the pizza world, another of the great restaurants in Barcelona where you can find gluten-free pizzas with an authentic dough, that’s Messié Sin Gluten. To understand it well, gluten is what gives the pizza dough elasticity, and if it is not found the point could become a shoe sole. In this restaurant they pass the gluten-free test with a note. Its owner, Frenchman Eric Luthringer, has devised a dough with rice, corn and tapioca that reaches the perfect point of finesse and crunchy reminiscent of a quiche base. An experience of ten in a gluten-free pizzeria.
The chef Jordi Esteve began in 2007 to make dishes for coeliacs after the visit of a child with this disease. A decade later, this restaurant with a Michelin star can boast a Mediterranean cuisine with an occasional oriental nod, with 95% of its gluten-free dishes. The Nectari restaurant menu has various menus, both for lunch and dinner, as well as a tasting menu for those who want to enjoy an authentic gastronomic experience without overlooking anything. In his letter each dish is indicated in detail, for those with allergies or intolerances.
Jansana Gluten Free Bakery
And for the time of breakfast or snack, celiacs also have options in Barcelona. The Jansana confectionery, in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, with more than 75 years of history, is one of them. Here all products are suitable for celiacs. In its opening with a space for tasting, it was one of the first bakeries and bakeries with an offer without gluten or other allergens such as lactose and nuts. All the ingredients are prepared in a workshop of their own, they do not have external suppliers and their maxim is not to renounce the flavor.
