A lot of coeliacs and gluten free diners struggle with eating Asian food due to soya sauce being used in most dishes. Kurubuto on King’s Road (http://www.kurobuta-london.com/) are able to cater very easily for coeliacs and also have gluten free soya sauce (yay!) and a special gluten free menu.
Just ask the staff to bring you the gluten free menu and start ordering the delicious dishes. Make sure you try as many as possible as I promise you won’t be disappointed, assuming that you like Japanese food obviously.
Salmon Gravadlax and Avocado Tartar with Dill Mayo, Rich Crunchies and Fresh Yuzu Zest
Gravad Lax and Avocado Maki and Dill Mayo
They have added gluten free rice crunchies on the maki and tartar which gives a nice texture similar to tempura.
I have been back since and they have now changed the ingredients of the sweet potato fries which means that unfortunately the fries are no longer gluten free. However the flamed edamame with sake, lemon, butter and maldon salt are very moreish so I highly recommend ordering a couple of these.
Kurobuta has got a few restaurants in London and the one in Marble Arch does a boozy brunch on the weekend with live music (and lots of drinks). The staff were incredibly accommodating to gluten free diners and atmosphere was great, might do another post on this soon.
