Being English and having suffered from a stereotypical ‘scoffing at all things French’ upbringing, I don’t think I’d ever even heard of a galette until I found out that I was Gluten Intolerant. I had assumed that all things crepe like were made from wheat flour, that’s what europe uses in everything right? Well, nope. Turns out galettes are usually naturally gluten free from Buckwheat flour (I’m sure there are many crappy version with a buckwheat/actual wheat combo though) so it’s only the cross contamination you have to worry about.
So, when I heard a new galette place had opened nearby and that their menu actually mentions the gluten free-ness of their galettes, I was very happy and rushed round. The place is nice and perfectly French enough, just look at the menu.
I’ve been there a few times now and I honestly can’t remember which particular delight this one was, but I can definitely remember that it was rather delicious. I’ve had a few galettes over the past few years and this was easily my favourite, it’s just so crispy and crunchy! I was getting into the whole French mood so I ordered this too.
Look, there it is in some bottles, just sitting on a shelf for all to see.
The street that it is on is pretty nice for a walk down. There’s even a Macaroon shop, a little further towards Eberswalder Str U-Bahn, called Mon Plaisir with gluten free macaroons and cookies!
In conclusion, go for a lunch, it’s good. Nothing more.Allergy Explorer.
