When you have an allergy or condition such as coeliac disease, going out for dinner – something that should be effortless fun – can seem like a bit of a chore. You have to be more selective about what you order and, in some cases, you have to rule out certain function venues gold coast.
The good news is your special dietary requirements don’t have to ruin your night out. Here are some ideas about staying safe while still enjoying yourself when going out to dinner.
Be Aware of Others’ Allergies
You might be surprised by just how many people have allergies – the numbers are on the rise. On top of the most well-known allergies (e.g. peanuts, onion, garlic, wheat, dairy), some people have intolerances to more niche food items, such as preservatives or specific fruits. Whether or not you yourself have an allergy, it’s important to be aware of any conditions the friends you’re dining with have. This way, you can take extra care with your own food if necessary and make a considerate choice regarding where to dine.
Choose Your Venue
Most broadbeach restaurants and cafés have their menu on their website (like we do!). Use this to your advantage and ensure you’re booking dinner at a place that can cater towards your dietary needs. If you can’t be sure from the venue’s website, call ahead to double check. Here at Sage Café, we’re sensitive to the various requirements of people with allergies, which is why we go out of our way to ensure your dining experience is both enjoyable and safe.
Speak to the Staff
Even though our menu includes helpful details such as ‘gluten free’, don’t assume that a certain dish is unavailable to you just because it contains an ingredient you can’t eat. Our staff will always do what they can to assist you, so speak to the manager or chef about adjusting your meal to suit your requirements. We can be quite flexible when needed!
