Gluten Free in Dubai
Dubai is known around the world for its burgeoning restaurant scene that not only encompasses expected highlights, such as French, Japanese and fusion cuisine, but also nods to the traditions and flavours of the Middle East. It seems in Dubai, there’s always a new spin being put on the dining experience; from the interactive tables from which you can order in Ebony, to salsa-dancing your calories away at Ocacti. But what concessions are being made to those who must follow a strict gluten-free diet, and is there a way to satisfy your appetite in this international city of many flavours?

I am gluten intolerant and if I am in Dubai, Organic Foods and Cafe is where it’s at for me.

I’m glad you explained that a chef might be glad to alter his foods for dietary restrictions. I would have never asked one. My husband and I have no problem with gluten, but my husband is diabetic. Maybe they would also cater to a diabetic diet..
Dubai is a wonderful place to visit!

I think some of my family are visiting Dubai over Christmas vacation. Sounds like a nice place!
Megan R says
Glad that you are able to find meals to suit your needs in any city!

I have been to Dubai and gluten-free is a grey area. Many foods are simply exchanged with corn, which most people who have Celiac’s (myself included) are also allergic to.
That’s a place that NOT on my bucket list. Have to get to New Zealand first.
Richard Hicks says
I want to visit Dubai one of these days. Glad to see they are going gluten free too.
