Noa Restaurant Collins Avenue Edge Hill

I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Noa last week.  There were quite a few GF choices on the menu. I chose the Chicken Ballotine which was prosciutto wrapped chicken, baby carrots, caramelised onion, pine nuts and baked potato all in a verjuice.  Presentation was great as the chicken was sliced into attractive rounds.  It was…

Piato Restaurant for dinner on the Pier Cairns

Good choice of gluten free items on the dinner menu.  Plates are a mix of Italian and Greek. My dinner companion and I chose to share mushrooms with garlic and lightly fried calamari with aioli for entree.  Both were very tasty with quite a lot of calamari rings. For main course I chose the Piato…

Piato Restaurant at the Pier Cairns

Lunch at this restaurant was fairly simple but quite tasty.  I chose the hamburger with gluten free bread (toast) which was ordinary but jazzed up with roasted capsicum and tzatziki on the burger. The staff were very obliging and advised they could accommodate coeliac diners with most menu choices. We had chosen from the Lunch…

Candy Cafe – 70 Grafton Street, Cairns

NOA Restaurant Edge Hill Cairns

Lots of GF options on the lunch menu here. My choice was Beef Brisket Tacos (3) with fermented red cabbage, red onion, blue cheese dressing and jalapeno salsa.  Very filling meal and definitely not hot if you are worried about the jalapenos.  Hand cut chips are also GF and served with garlic aioli. This was…
