It can be extremely difficult eating out when you have to avoid sneaky gluten in every dish. Even when you think something is gluten-free you should ask your server in case any soy sauce, barley malt, rye or wheat is hidden within. Frequently when food has been fried you can expect that it has been rolled in a flour-based batter, or that it has been fried in oil where gluten-filled items are also fried, making them an instant no-no for coeliacs. But all this detective work can be exhausting when all you want to do is enjoy a nice meal out with friends, family or that special someone… So, you’ll be pleased to discover that restaurants in Toowoomba are a dab hand at catering for gluten-free requirements.
