Who are you and where are you?
I’m Laura, a 25 year old Master’s student at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Tell me about your relationship withÂ gluten..
I realized I had Celiac disease in September of 2010 and have been off of it since.
Why shouldÂ glutenÂ freeÂ travellers visit yourÂ town?
Montreal has the most amazing food- I tend to be a bit of a traveller and there are few places that are comparable to Montreal in terms of the variety and quality of food that is being offered.
Tell me something fun about yourÂ town..
The city is wonderfully diverse. It is multicultural and this is evident in the food and traditions that we have in the city. It is an exceptionally historical place, our architecture often reflects this and we have very distinct neighbourhoods which add uniqueness to our city.
Where is your favourite place to eat out in yourÂ townÂ and why?
I have several,
Bombay Mahal– It is the best Indian food that I have ever had (and I have hunted). They are exceptionally knowledgeable aboutÂ glutenÂ freeÂ and are always willing to answer your questions about food that has flour.
Arepera du Plateau– is a Venezuelan restaurant that is 100%Â glutenÂ free. They specialize in arepas which are sandwiches made from corn flour. They have a great menu and are super awesome people.
