Burgers at Brodburger

Brodburger has always had a special place in my heart, since its early days in the red caravan at Bowen Park. Nothing is better than a burger and fries by the lake with friends.  The great news is that it’s possible to have a low-FODMAP Brod at their new and improved store at the Glassworks…

Low FODMAP bread update

There have been lots of changes to low FODMAP breads available in Canberra since my post last year. Artisan sourdough Unfortunately, Autolyse is no longer with us, so their spelt sourdough is off the menu. I also can’t find Sonoma’s breads since Supabarn in the City was converted to Coles. But happily, Three Mills Bakery…

Bibimbap at Hangari Kimchi

Korean food is so popular in Canberra, but given how much garlic is generally used in Korean food, you may have been reluctant to tag along with your friends. Worry not, bibimbap is a delicious low-FODMAP option for us that seems to be on every Korean menu! Bibimbap means “mixed rice” in Korean. You can…

Curries at the Hungry Buddha

Good South Asian curries are one of the things I’ve missed most since starting the low-FODMAP diet. I’ve asked quite a few Indian restaurants in Canberra if they can make me something onion and garlic free, and so far I haven’t found one willing. However, the good folks at the Hungry Buddha Nepalese in Curtin were…

BrodDogs

I love the occasional hotdog, and thanks to BrodDogs at the Hamlet in Braddon, I can enjoy a low-FODMAP version. They have gluten free sausages and hot dog buns. The buns are soft and fluffy.  I keep my toppings simple. I find the tiny amounts of onion or garlic that can be found in most basic…

Dessert at Frugii

Finding dessert when dining out can be a challenge on the low-FODMAP diet. One of my favourite Canberra dessert places has been the Frugii Dessert Laboratory since it opened in Braddon early in 2015. Frugii’s sorbets can be a great low-FODMAP dessert choice. There are no artificial colours or flavours. John uses fruit and normal…

Buying low-FODMAP bread

If you’re not Coeliac too, you’re lucky, because you can eat spelt sourdough bread. Spelt sourdough still has gluten in it, but fructans, the real villain for low-FODMAPpers, has been broken down significantly during the fermentation process. This means that while it has a different flavour to wheat sourdough, the gluten gives it the same…

Breizh Café

While travelling through France last year, I discovered that the buckwheat crepes of Brittany are gluten free, low FODMAP and delicious. And upon my return I realised I could get them right here in Canberra from the delightful Breizh Café at the Ainslie shops. Since then, their crepes have become a favourite weekend breakfast treat. To date…

Bean & Grain

Recently, I became hangry while moving house. I needed brunch, and I needed it stat. I decided to see what Bean & Grain Dickson had to offer. I went for the Eggs on Toast on gluten free, and chose to add some tomato and bacon for good measure. I asked the chef to make sure…

La Rustica

Last week, while strolling along the Kingston Foreshore, I was in the mood for some Italian. La Rustica advertised gluten free pizzas on their menu for customers willing to order the large size and pay a gluten free surcharge. I asked the friendly staff if they could check with the kitchen that there was no…
