What do you miss the most about not being able to eat gluten? For me one of the things I miss is not being able to indulge in delicious cakes and fresh sandwiches when I am out. Luckily Manna Dew has opened up there doors and it is conveniently located very close to my house.
Manna Dew opened (http://mannadew.co.uk/) up a few months ago in Battersea (169 Battersea High St, SW11 3JS) and is an all gluten free artisan bakery offering beautiful patisserie, fresh bread, breakfast and much more. Basically a gluten free heaven…
If you don’t have time to eat in then you can always pop by to pick up some freshly baked gluten free baguette or focaccia.
I previously got to taste their artisan patisserie (click for review) before they had opened up the shop and as soon as they were open I had to visit them to try out their lunch options and indulge in some cake.
For starters I shared Camembert bites with berry compote. Of course this was a winning starter as who doesn’t love deep fried melted cheese?
Manna Dew produce everything themselves onsite so you can be sure that it is all free from gluten with no cross contamination. We went for two different fillings beef jalapeño and pulled chicken (the beef was definitely my favourite as the chicken was a bit dry).
The pulled chicken with rocket in freshly baked focaccia. Even though the bread was a bit dense it had a nice crunchy finish to it and for just £4.95 it is very good value for money.
Even though we were way too full I just couldn’t resist having the salted chocolate cake. This is dessert is just too tasty to not order in, especially with a nice flat white.
Manna Dew is a very unique and great place so it is no surprise that it busy with a continuous stream of visitors eating in and ordering items to go. Will need to come back to try their breakfast menu very soon as I love a good french toast.
