GF Review: 3 Squared, Manchester.

2019-04-23 12:04 #0 by: Leia

I finally got to try the only restaurant (that I know of) whose dishes are completely free from gluten, dairy, wheat & refined sugar in Manchester!

3 Squared first open its doors on the 1st of December 2018 in the Royal Exchange Arcade, Manchester.  Their mission is to cater for every preference from gluten-free-vegans to meat-lovers alike, there is an option on their menu guaranteed to hit your nourishment needs for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The restaurant was a cool heaven on a hot summers day. Tucked away at the end of the Royal Exchange Arcade, it is situated among all the designer shops and appears very posh!

Although the menu was limited it offered light, easy tasty meals. My boyfriends and I went for the Eggs Benedict and Eggs Royal, while the GF bread was lovely I was disappointed to find it wasn't toasted, but I really enjoyed the hollandaise sauce.  Another downside of my experience was the waiting time for food, it seemed like forever and considering the simplicity of the food order it did not seem necessary.

Another flaw was the oat milk in the smoothies,  oats are not  gluten-free and can contain gluten, for someone with coeliac disease/severe allergy this could have caused a serious issue.   This also made me wonder if the pancakes would be made with oat milk? 

All the best, Leia

Do you think you’ll go back again?

How much did meals cost?

Did you notify them of the oat milk?

#1 I think I would if it was elsewhere, Manchester has an array of restaurants I want to try first before going back to the same ones.

#2 The meals were less than £10 each which considering the location and normal price of a city centre lunch I thought was very reasonable. But no, I did not address the oat milk, perhaps if the staff were more chatty and approachable I would have. 

All the best, Leia

What constitutes as refined sugar? I'm not aware of sugar being an allergen at all.

White sugar is refined.

#6 I don’t think it’s about allergies, I think it’s about health and nutrition.

All the best, Leia
