Trying to find some new gluten-free eats in Canberra?

From pizza to Pide, pork ribs to pan-Asian cuisine, there are plenty of delicious new places that have opened that have (very) decent gluten-free menus.

Forget a basic garden salad, you’ll leave all these places very full and happy. You’re welcome.

OHNO! (Manuka)

Since its recent opening in Manuka, the food scene has been saying “oh yes” to modern pan-Asian bar and diner OHNO! But for gluten-free foodies, there’s another layer of excitement to be had—they have lots of gluten-free and coeliac-safe options. From Tuna Sashimi (served with radish, tobiko, honey yaju, and cress) to Red Duck Curry, Twice-Cooked Chicken, and Coconut Rice Pudding with honey melon, pineapple, yuzu, and meringue, everything sounds delicious.

Oh My Dough (Woden)

If you’re craving some comfort food, Oh My Dough might just be the place to go. Why? From puffy pizza bites to whole pizzas, wraps, salads, and Mediterranean pies, there are endless gluten-free options. The hardest thing will be deciding what to eat from all the options—which is a very unusual experience for anyone who can’t eat gluten.

Fenway (Woden)

Okay, this isn’t a new location, but Fenway does have a new Head Chef and a new menu to match. Perfect for when you want to go to the pub for a casual meal and a drink, gluten-free foodies can choose from Karage Cauliflower Bites, slow-cooked Pork Ribs, Crispy Pan-Fried Duck Breast, and four types of chicken wings (a personal favourite is the Kimchi Hot Wings) and more. Make sure to go along hungry because you’ll need to undo the top button of your pants when you’re done here.

Fonda (City)

You’re probably sick of hearing about new Mexican eatery Fonda—but it really does deserve a mention on this list. Their nachos, burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and bowls all have gluten-free options, making this eatery incredibly diverse and accommodating. The Crispy Prawn Tacos and Roasted Sweet Potato Quesadillas should be at the top of your list…with a side of Loaded Nachos, of course.

Luna (City)

If you’re heading out on the town, a place where you can play, sip, AND dine ticks all the boxes. So, have you been to Luna? Alongside a creative cocktail list, you’ll find a menu overflowing with gluten-free options. All designed to be shared, we’re sure you can talk your friends into one of the elevated street food-inspired dishes. Orange Chicken Popcorn anyone?

55 Turkish (Kaleen)

If you’ve been dreaming of Turkish cuisine, we have some good news—55 Turkish is now open in Belconnen and Kaleen. Offering gluten-free pizzas, Pide, Gozleme, kebabs, and even a banquet option, you can go here knowing that you’ll be able to enjoy authentic Turkish food without regret. I don’t know about you, but sometimes you just really need a chicken kebab.
