Gluten-free Sushi at Maiko

gluten-free sushi at Maiko

Maiko was one of my favourite restaurants when I moved back to the West Island for several years. While I don’t go often, the one on Sources Bldv. is delicious and they are great at accommodating gluten-free. My family sometimes orders sushi in for dinner when I visit them in the west and the person who answered the phone the last two times was very knowledgeable about gluten-free restrictions.
My favourites are sashimi, avocado rolls and spicy salmon salmon (without tempura). A double birthday for my friend and I meant two plates of gluten-free sorbet to share. They even have gluten-free soy sauce. A lot of sushi places now have it and this usually (not always) means they are knowledgeable about gluten-free diets.

The ambience is nice and our waiter was great with dealing with my groups range of allergies and food restrictions. Between the 5 of us we had 2 vegans, one celiac and one sensitive to a large variety of foods.  Obviously there is always a risk of cross- contamination. Make sure to explain any allergies to your server and simple options like sashimi are always best.

There is also a location on Bernard (near Parc) if you are in the city.

Gluten-Free Dining at Pastaga

Gluten-Free Pastaga

I had wanted to try Pastaga since it was included in a list of restaurants that had great gluten-free dishes in the Montreal Gazette. Pastaga, like Toqué, was a fancier place I wanted to try and it lived up to my high expectations. About 3/4 of the mains on the menu were gluten-free without any adjustments and most of the dishes could be made without gluten.

We had smoked salmon and beet salad to start and bubbles because it was my birthday. Both dishes were great but the smoked salmon was one of the best dishes I had had in a while.  I am biased as I am obsessed with salmon, herbs, mayo and potatoes. As a main I had scallops which were delicious. My date had  pork with carrot pancakes, which were not gluten-free. For dessert we had mousse chocolat amer, brisures de tire éponge et foam caramel bits which was amazing and happily gluten-free. We had the wine pairing with are dishes which was great.

I would highly recommend Pastaga for a special gluten-free dinner. It has a nice ambience and they are knowledgeable about gluten-free . Reservations are highly recommended.
