Gluten Free Luxembourg

I was a little bit fed up with searching for “authentic local also gluten free” food, so in my planning for Luxembourg, I just went with whatever works… and that ended up being Indian!

First night we ate at Everest because it was just down the street from our hotel, which was having difficulty finding keycards for guests and couldn’t check anyone in for awhile.The food was fine and the waiter made some recommendations that would be OK for me to eat.We enjoyed stuffing ourselves silly before heading back to the hotel to check in.The crispy bread was apparently made from lentil flour, so it was also OK. Kay also ordered a garlic naan at my insistance, with mint, but it wasn’t the best naan ever. He said it was a bit dry.Breakfast at the Radisson Park Inn was pretty good. I had my fill of mushrooms because Kay hates them, as well as a mix of bacon, sausages, tomatoes, a bit of scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and freshly squeeze orange juice. They had a funny juicer that looked like it took a ton of work to clean, but the juice was great!

On Saturday we also stopped at Adriano for some ice cream. Ice cream was very necessary for coping with the heat.We stopped for a cider at a pub. We never do things like this in Zurich because of how much it costs, so midday drinking or even just drinking outside the house seems like a luxury on trips like this. On Saturday night we didn’t feel like going far walking. We didn’t have a car in Luxembourg, so we just went to Taj Mahal for some more Indian.I wasn’t really wowed by the food, but it was fine. It filled me up.

Walking to and from the restaurant was a little scary though. There were several guys who looked like they could be dealers making  coded gestures to each other and I didn’t want to be around that. I didn’t want to find out if they were planning on mugging us or if they were just into drug dealing. We kept our heads down and got back to the hotel as fast as possible.The next day breakfast was more of the same. I am still eating like twice as much as Kay and don’t know where I am putting it. I am skinnier than ever!After visiting the the casemates, we wandered around quite a lot to find a place open for early dinner. We would up at Restaurant Brasserie G L’Beguin Sàrl, which had some divine scallops and risotto. Risotto is my old gluten free go-to and it went perfectly with some rose and ice cream for dessert.

Once again, I’m getting a little hungry thinking about all this food again. I cannot seem to get food off my mind lately.
