The Gluten Free Challenge – Day 5

25 May

Friday night often results in a night out on the tiles, but with it being Coeliac Awareness Week, I roped some friends into going to Dough Restaurant in Manchester.

Dough is situated within the heart of the Northern Quarter in Manchester surrounded by all the cool swanky bars. Yet it still manages to stand out, with its huge windows, impressive decor – it really does ‘wow’ you when you walk past. Usually, when I see such a swanky restaurant, I always think they’re going to be quite steep in their price range, but Dough offers affordable pizzas to suit any purse.

Dough offers gluten free pizzas, starters and desserts! I was so shocked at the amount of gluten free food that was on this menu, usually you’re faced with a little selection but at Dough, you can pretty much pick any pizza and it’s gluten free!

For my starter, I roped my friend Joe in sharing a platter of twisted dough sticks with 5 dips. They were absolutely delicious and Joe couldn’t even tell they were made from gluten free flour – they tasted ‘normal’ gluten dough sticks.

My main course was in fact a pizza and being the boring bugger that I am, I opted for a plain and simple margarita pizza [obviously with a gluten free base!] but it was absolutely gorgeous!

but the crème de la crème was the dessert. Now I don’t usually opt for a dessert at a restaurant. I normally too full up or I can’t find anything on the menu that’s gluten free, but at Dough I had a huge choice, from gluten free chocolate cake to gluten free cheesecake [mmmmm!]

Look at that little piece of heaven on a plate and yep, you guessed it, that thing was eaten in less then a second!

I really do reccomend anyone who lives in Manchester or is planning to visit Manchester sometime to try out Dough.
