This time last week I was in sunny Malaga with the girls. It was my first proper girlie weekend and I had a great time! I can highly recommend Malaga for a weekend in the sun.
We had a great time walking around the city. There is so much to see and do. The architecture is beautiful. I love the gardens and park area around the harbour.
Gluten free wise I managed OK. I had printed off a sheet in Spanish that explained Coeliac Disease. I got it from here There was one place that then presumed I couldn’t eat potatoes but we managed to get the waitress to understand that I could have Spanish Omelette. The sauce it came with I couldn’t have it due to gluten. I had done some research on restaurants before hand using this guide and we visited one of the restaurants mentioned.
Pizzeria Romolo y Remo didn’t have an actual menu as such. In our Fritspanglish – a language that we made up using French, Italian, Spanish and English – (honest we did have a phrase book but that wasn’t much use) we managed to understand that they had 3 pasta sauces that were gluten free. I was quite reassured as I heard the waitress remind the chef cooking several times that it was a gluten free dish.
Allergen information was a bit hit and miss but the winners were an ice cream company called Conico as they had clear labels on all their ice cream that had allergens in them and the menu at La Plaza Alcazabilla had clear allergen information on it. This also made it easy to order what I wanted!
What surprised me was the amount of gluten free stuff in the supermarket. It would be very easy to stay self catering as the supermarket had bread and pasta. They also had lots of nice cakes and biscuits that I’ve not seen before.
This was my little haul 🙂
I had a great trip and would definitely go back there 🙂
