As someone who can't eat gluten, there are certain Sydney foods you learn to accept you just can't eat. Fresh croissants from Bourke Street Bakery. Two dozen dumplings from Grapes on the Roof. A burger from Mary's. The list goes on, but this weekend it stops at what has heretofore been a gluten-only zone: gözleme.
Yes, you read that right: gluten-free göz. The not-so traditional take on the Turkish treat comes courtesy of The Gözleme Store, who'll pop up this Saturday only at Tramsheds. Varieties include spinach and feta, veggies with truffle oil, Turkish chicken and beef — and all are suitable for coeliacs as well as being dairy- and yeast-free. We honestly don't know how you'll cope with the choice.
Is this the first time someone has gifted the gluten intolerant with such a snack? It's the first we've heard of it in Sydney. It feels like the golden age of gluten-free dining is almost here. Don't knock it — just make sure you tell all your GF mates.
If you miss out, fear not — The Gözleme Store has popped up at Tramsheds before, and may do so again. Keep an eye on its Facebook page for updates.
The pop-up will be open from 10am till 4pm inside Tramsheds.
