Twitter Planning for Gluten-Free Dining in the UK

I find Twitter to be an awesome resource for planning gluten-free meals while both at home and abroad. All you have to do is Tweet where you are going and that you want to eat gluten-free and someone is bound to tweet you back. Here’s an example:

I sent a similar Tweet when look for places to eat in Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Glasgow. Twitter did not disappoint. I got a number of responses for each city that helped me put together a map of places to eat while in the UK. I also connected with a few restaurants and cafe owners who were eager for me to come in and try their gluten-free food while I am in the UK. While I cannot go everywhere, I am going to do my best to eat safely, and obviously 100% gluten-free, while overseas.

A special thanks to these fine Tweeters who gave me some awesome gluten-free tips:

    Yes, I’ve gotten good advice for places to eat both times I’ve visited DC (one of which times I’m currently in the middle of! We enjoyed the much-recommended Busboys & Poets last night).
