THE GLUTEN-FREE GUIDE TO BANGALORE

I feel like a complete fraud writing this article because I am a glutenaholic (don’t look that up in the dictionary) that knows very little about being gluten-free. But don’t stop reading yet, because this article was made in collaboration with a bunch of women who are celiacs or just feel better when gluten is out of their diet. Luckily in Bangalore, there are tons of options to eat delicious desserts and bakery items, head out to fabulous restaurants, and grocery shop while maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle. If you’re looking for cakes, cinnamon rolls, sourdough, bagels, or a nice cafe or restaurant that actually knows what gluten-free means, then you’re at the right place, just keep reading!
