Restaurants for the awkward

    Looking for advice on restaurants in Dublin if anyone could help. Background is that I used to be a very unfussy eater, stick anything in front of me (except Sprouts), no issues. Then I discovered that the bad headaches I was getting were caused by dairy. So out that went. Which was fine until about four years ago, at which point I was diagnosed with diverticular disease. So that eliminated another set of foods (though in reality its more keeping what you eat balanced).

    Now I have also been diagnosed with Crohn's disease, which has really scuppered things. Its ok while at home, as I can fit my diet to suit, but I'm often working out of hotels in Dublin. Can anyone recommend restaurants in Dublin that are helpful at dealing with very specific dietary requirements? In many ways a celiac conscious restaurant would probably hit a lot of the issues, but some of the worst triggers are a bit specific (onion powder, apple etc).

    How about Cornucopia on Wicklow Street?

    Not a bad notion, might have a look up there. Although meat is actually the one thing I have virtually no issue with!

    Rustic Stone?, it's on George's Street.

    The Millstone on Dame St is lovely and has a completely gluten free menu, they are very approachable about adapting for other allergies too :)

    You could try Indian/Pakistani restaurants that specialise in vegetarian/vegan. From experience, and just off my head, I can recommend Govindas, Madina, Delhi O'Deli. Apart from paneer cheese and some yoghurts, they generally use little dairy.

    Yamamori do gluten free teriyaki dishes which are lovely as it's completely fresh ingredients (meat/veg). They also do sushi with gluten free soy sauce and gf beer :)

    Thai restaurants can also be ok - or Gotham cafe for lovely salads - Cobb salad in particular! For gf pizza go to Credo's Harcourt st.but not sure about cheese substitute on pizza. :( poor you!!
