The Charming Squire (4)

The best dairy-free & gluten-free dishes

eatSouthBank firmly believes that food intolerance or allergy shouldn’t prevent people from eating out… ever.


Our favourite dairy free food in South Bank 

There is no need to be decisive at Baba Ganouj: ask for a dairy-free mezza platter loaded with falafel, tabouli, herb zaatar, stuffed vine leaves, marinated grilled meats and their traditional Lebanese hommos and baba ganouj dips. We suggest arriving hungry.

Stokehouse promises dairy-free decadence with dishes like Cobia sashimi with blood orange reduction or the country style pork terrine with Seville orange jam, piccalilli and mustard leaf salad. If you prefer red meat, opt for either the corned beef tongue with baked turnips, malted onions and toasted walnuts or the New England lamb with borlotti bean salad, native parsley, quince and black pudding.

Mado gives us Turkey’s best, minus the dairy! Filling, hearty dishes include baked eggplant, vegetable or chicken casserole, moussaka and char-grilled barramundi.


Our favourite gluten free food in South Bank 

Zeus is the the gluten free god of the sky! Their tzatziki, beetroot hummus and spicy feta dips are a total god-save and their gluten-free pitas are heavenly. Pardon the puns.

If you are looking for something fresh and flavoursome, Viet de Lites gluten free picks are for you. We love their noodle soups, soft shell crab with tamarind sauce, lemongrass chilli calamari and broken rice with egg and grilled pork.

In a rush? Any burger can be made on a gluten free bun at Burger Urge.

Indulge your sweet tooth with the Charming Squire’s warm fig and walnut torte with Sunshine Coast honey ice cream or their peanut butter souffle with chocolate sauce and salted peanut ice cream.

Keep cravings for soul food at bay by getting yourself to Bourbon Street for a bowl of restorative Gumbo.

Mucho Mexicano has recently opened on Little Stanley Street and can make all of their tacos sans gluten. Order their taco share plate for a relaxed, social meal with friends.

Lovers of tapas do not need to be lovers of gluten: give Ole’s crispy spiced potatoes, oysters and grilled octopus a red hot go …or sample one of their signature seafood, chicken or vegetarian paellas
