Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!
A great centrally located Spanish Restaurant which clearly and unambiguously caters for GLUTEN FREE diners: La Tasca is a great choice for an interesting meal if you’re passing through central London as it’s south of Covent Garden and moments away from Trafalgar Square.
They have an extensive Menu and clearly indicate which dishes are GLUTEN FREE. This helps you feel welcomed like any other “regular” patron, which isn’t the approach at some other establishments who provide a separate GLUTEN FREE Menu. Surprisingly, the choice is very extensive and instead of a special selection, you review the choices like everyone else!
So here are a few highlights….
I don’t think you can enjoy Spanish Tapas without having some bread. It is primarily a great excuse to dip (not in the provided oil) but the sauces of the many dishes and enjoy the juiciness of the flavours. This GLUTEN FREE bread is hard and crunchy, but delicious with a soft inside and plain enough to enjoy with some powerful dishes.
And the bread was used to soak up the spicy oil.
Lovely, creamy and delicious: you couldn’t tell it was GLUTEN FREE.
The Spanish black pudding was beautiful: really meaty and oaty and GLUTEN FREE.
Deliciously salty and fresh.
A really creamy dish with lovely meaty chicken in a delicious GLUTEN FREE sauce.
Again, the bread came in handy to soak up the juicy sauce.
In the heart of Covent Garden, it is a large restaurant spread over three floors with a top balcony, the ground floor and a large basement with long tables (probably good for office parties and groups). A with such a great selection for GLUTEN FREE eaters, it is somewhere I look forward to returning to.
