I know all my fellow gluten frees will sympathise and understand how challenging it can sometimes be when eating out especially when it’s for a friend’s birthday and you have no choice on the venue / menu! It was my best friends birthday recently and when she sent out the invite I immediately checked the venue online and the food on offer. It was for brunch at Bunga Bunga, an Italian restaurant in Battersea and initially there looked to be no gluten free in sight. The fixed menu consisted of bread with cured meats, fruit and pizza, pizza and more pizza! However, my lovely friend had already contacted the restaurant for me and they were fairly accommodating, suggesting several salad options and pointing out the cured meats and fruit would be OK. They also suggested that I could bring in my own GF base and they could add the toppings which sounded the most appealing option (who wants salad when you can have pizza?!) so I got straight onto the Internet to see where I could order a base from.
