Gluten-free Berlin: A #nimatested Dining Guide
In the past, traveling to Germany might have seemed very difficult and complicated for me. As someone with a gluten intolerance, food is always the first question on my mind when I’m thinking of traveling somewhere new. But with the help of the internet and Nima I discovered that there are more options than you would think! Below are four gluten-free options around Berlin’s central square and transportation hub, Alexanderplatz.
Note: As with all our guides, always use precaution when dining out. The ingredients or staff can be different day by day and a Nima test does not guarantee the whole plate. Bring your Nima along with extra capsules and always let Nima take the first bite!
#nimatested Dish: Fitness-Pfanne and French Fries
Notes: First up is Block House because of their dedicated gluten-free menu. I ordered the Fitness-Pfanne and tested the french fries, which are gluten-free! I would highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner as there are plenty of options and very accommodating staff.
#nimatested Dish: Tiramisu Gelato
Notes: The perfect way to cool off if you’re visiting Berlin in the summer. Al Teatro Eiscafé is inside the Alexanderplatz station and a great place to grab a gluten-free gelato. The staff was able to point out all of my options to avoid gluten and used a separate ice cream scoop to serve my dish. The shop is in a central location right near the famous TV Tower, World Clock, and a short walk to the Berlin Cathedral Church. All must sees if you’re in Berlin!
Tip: Remember to bring euro! They only accept cash.
Location: Panoramastraße 1A, 10178 Berlin, Germany
#nimatested Dish: Mango Chicken
Notes: Another centralized restaurant in the city, this location is great for a lunch or dinner near Alexanderplatz. The staff consulted with the chef before suggesting gluten-free options for me and were happy to accommodate for allergies.
Location: Rathausstraße 1, 10178 Berlin, Germany
#nimatested Dish: Gluten-free Pasta with Sauce
Notes: A restaurant, bar, and club with gluten-free options great for lunch or dinner. Tip for travel in Europe: some restaurants, such as Carambar, don’t have a dedicated gluten-free menu but list symbols next to each item for allergies. Items with the letter ‘A’ next to the food items means the dish contains gluten.
