Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!

Restaurant Review: Skylon, Royal Festival Hall, London…

Formerly, the Peoples Palace restaurant, the latest restaurant occupying the space overlooking the River Thames from the Royal Festival Hall is Skylon, named after the famous Festival of Britain’s sculptural icon which also sat in this space. The waiting staff were very accommodating and after speaking with the Chef, they were able to confirm which dishes could be made GLUTEN FREE and which I would be better avoiding.

GLUTEN FREE Bread.. (a brown and not pictured: a white roll).

So pleased and surprised that GLUTEN FREE bread was presented to me whilst regular bread was presented to the other guests. What was great was instead of assuming I would enjoy white bread, they actually gave me one brown roll and one white roll. Both were warm and had a light bouncy texture. It was one of the better GLUTEN FREE breads I had tasted for a long time.

My GLUTEN FREE starter: puy lentils with bacon in lettuce wraps.

My Starter was the Lettuce Wraps. These were delicious although overfilled so they couldn’t be held easily and were eaten with a knife and fork. The crispy bacon added a saltiness to the heavy flavorsome lentils. Quite a filling starter but a great GLUTEN FREE dish.

For my Main course, I had a limited choice but selected the Fish Stew. It was presented really well, although an initial mix-up in the Kitchen (the waiter spotted that they had left the crouton on the dish) and before it reached my table, it was returned back to the kitchen. Whilst there were a few awkward minutes whilst my fellow dinners enjoyed their main course meals and I sat their, like a lemon, they kitchen quickly responded and a new fresh GLUTEN FREE Fish stew was presented.

My GLUTEN FREE Main Course: Fish Stew.

The stock /sauce was very smoky with individual pieces of beautifully soft fish (and a few vegetables) made this a tasty dish. Not sure it looked that appetizing but it was a really tasty dish and of course, GLUTEN FREE. Given my two “large” course and the leisurely service, I didn’t opt for a dessert but had enjoyed the GLUTEN FREE Meal.

Other GLUTEN FREE Meals around central LONDON (or restaurants with branches in and around the Capital), that are reviewed on my blog include…
