Edible Canada on Granville Island
Granville Island is accessible from Vancouver by either an adorable little ferry boat, or a bridge. Choose the wee boat for a charming experience that makes you feel like you’re getting away from it all! Edible Canada was a gluten free dining experience that made my heart sing. Why? Because I had fish and chips!!
Created with a light and fresh batter, the fish was deliciously flaky and just perfect when dunked into the rich housemade tartar sauce. It had been literally years since I’d had fish and chips, so this almost brought tears to my eyes. It was just as I’d remembered it – except even more delicious. Their menu has wonderful gluten free options like: sturgeon, wild salmon, duck poutine, and a berry and rhubarb pavlova for dessert. (Many of their dishes can also be made dairy free. But please note: on their menu they warn that their kitchen is not entirely gluten or dairy free, so be aware that there might be cross contamination.)
MeeT in Gastown, Vancouver, BC
This funky eatery has a menu that says that all of their menu items can be made gluten-free! Terrific! And, all of their menu items are also vegan, so this is a great spot if you have multiple food allergies or food preferences in your household. Lots of comfort food favourites like Mac and Cheeze (dairy-free cheese), butter chikkin (vegan ‘chicken’), and desserts like lemon tart or Cheezecake pots made with cashews. Delish!
