Gluten-Free in Amsterdam

Picture from the StudioGrassi website

When my good friend Kristen mentioned she was going to Amsterdam in March, I got really excited. I love researching new cities and I thought finding gluten-free food in Amsterdam would be a challenge. I didn’t find a ton of restaurants that could cater to a gluten-free traveler, but did find one gluten-free bakery and another chain restaurant that served gluten-free food. I cannot vouch for any of these places, since I haven’t been myself, but I wanted to share my Amsterdam research with my readers. You can read Kristen’s Amsterdam tales here.

UPDATE:

After my original post, a dear reader and friend passed along a photo from her trip to Amsterdam and a comment:

“Yes, I AM … Gluten-Free and having fun being so! Your delightful guest blogger Kristen reminds us of our take on Amsterdam. Surely you did an excellent job researching GF for her trip, Erin. That ol’ lump in the tummy is no longer de rigueur in order to travel GF. Amsterdam is a fun, energetic, lovely, historical, and easy place to get around. We love seeing things from a different point of view. Anything can go!”
