At GFG we love sharing plates! Although at the moment my pregnancy cravings are making me not want to share so much! After a rougher start to our pregnancy hyperemis has been persistent. But at x16 weeks I am now finally ready to make up the lost calories of my first trimester. Give me food, is the war cry atm!
So Cafe Andaluz was the perfect introduction to gf mini dishes I was comfortable to try, without over indulging and making my sickness worse. Their sharing starter plate was amazing. I was limited due to not having a gf tortilla, but enjoyed the salsa & Serrano ham. Here’s a GF friendly list to look at pre visit also of u live locally and fancy a takeout here’s how. https://deliveroo.co.uk/menu/glasgow/byres-road/cafe-andaluz-glasgow

Albóndigas Chorizo Al Vino & a Pollo Marinado which is Pan fried, sliced chicken breast marinated in paprika, lemon and coriander, served with chilli yoghurt.
I loved the Patatas Gratinadas (v)
Layers of sliced potato baked with garlic cream and mozzarella cheese
Patatas Bravas (v)

Solomillo Con Setas GF

I couldn’t eat all of the dishes due to my allergies but tried a few & loved the steak strips and especially the patatas gratinadas. An allergens guide for all our dishes we ate is available.
A gluten free menu is available on request. For desserts I wasn’t as hungry as Michael but we still choose two. A gorgeous sticky toffee cheesecake arrived, as did a perfect meringue and fruit for me which was perfect. Although was definitely so jealous of the cheesecake! It looked incredible and I can say the smile on Michael’s face was worth the two extra helpings of desserts. Only problem is I thought I was meant to be eating for two?!
All in all was a superb day for a visit to a very summery and tropical west end that day! Cheers to Cafe Andaluz we hope to go back and visit really soon! Here’s a sneak peak of the food.
