Dine Around Victoria Goes Gluten Free

A precedent has been set in Victoria and perhaps across Canada! The gluten free, their family and friends have been included in a celebration of local restaurants!

Tourism Victoria invited participating restaurants to submit a celiac-friendly menu. Ingredients were checked and procedures to minimize or prevent cross-contamination were put in place .

Restaurants who have taken precautions to provide the gluten free with a safe and delicious meals can be viewed at Tourism Victoria

Looking for a Gluten-Free Guarantee? Sorry, can’t make one.
Be sure to identify your needs and check that each course meets the standards that you require. It is up to you to decide whether partaking is in your own best interests. For the questions to ask see our GF Grillers!

A sincere thank you to Tourism Victoria for their interest in including our community in this annual initiative. A thanks also goes out to the BC Restaurant & Food Services Association, Victoria Branch, and ProArt, who have worked hard to make this event a success.

Celiacs, this is our opportunity to really “go to town” and enjoy ourselves. Let’s let Victoria’s restaurant community know that going gluten free is great for business, all year round! Plan to participate, consider an overnight stay or take in a live performance, all at amazing prices.

Bard's Beer at White Spot

A great evening was had by members of the Victoria Chapter who dined at White Spot on Caledonia. The sweet potato fries prepared in White Spot's dedicated deep fryer accompanied by a cold glass of Bard's Beer (made from gluten-free malted sorghum) was the hit of the evening. A set menu with just a few of the celiac-friendly options that this White Spot location offers made for a delicious evening. Fun was provided by a draw for two Bard's Beer T-Shirts and everyone took home a very slick and transportable Bard's Beer bottle opener.
