Dining out with dietary restrictions can be a real pain, especially when you are travelling and subject to the sensitivities (or lack thereof) of another cook. For those who have been ‘glutened’ or had to carefully explain the difference between pescetarianism and vegetarianism, we feel you.
This life challenge is precisely why we do whatever we can to accommodate our patrons’ dietary needs and preferences. Many of our dishes can be amended to suit a wide range of concerns, and our chefs are known for their ability to concoct delicious, safe dishes ‘off menu’ when required.
Our philosophy of inclusiveness and community extends to the plate. No diner need go unfed! We truly believe that dining out should present an opportunity to relax – for everyone – which means removing the need for scrutiny and hyper-vigilance.
Save for special events – such as our recent Thai Supper – Bangbelly maintains a peanut-free space. We offer easy, gluten-free modifications for the majority of our dishes, and vegans need not shy away. Seeds get you down? Allergic to lettuce? Worry not. Just let us know how we can accommodate you.
While cross-contamination is a concern in any competent kitchen, we maintain the highest culinary standards to limit your exposure to the many allergens that are regularly used at the café.
Ultimately, the most important part of maintaining a practice of dietary sensitivity is honesty. If we can’t do it, or we can’t do it safely, we always make sure to let you know, because you should always have agency over what you consume.
