Novi Sad: a 100% gluten-free restaurant close to the University and the city center.

It was the last day of the trip but it was not going to be less intense. I ordered a rather simple gluten-free breakfast: scrambled eggs. As there was a free buffet and the risk of cross-contamination in these environments is very high, I talked to the waitress to get it directly from the kitchen. No problem! As I mentioned in the previous post, the Falkensteiner Hotel is very nice. That day we had the meeting in a city I can’t spell (let alone pronounce). But leaving the meeting we would go to discover gluten-free restaurants in Novi Sad.

I had heard very good things about this city. I have to go back as a tourist, because traveling for work I don’t get to see most of the cool places I go to.

Novi Sad is another city bathed by the Danube, which also crosses other capitals in Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. And how can I forget Serbia?

We finished the meeting and went straight to the restaurant.

I found it restaurant thanks to a Facebook group that had been recommended to me in the Coeliac Youth of Europe group. Also in Facebook. I had posted there a few days ago to ask about gluten-free restaurants in Osijek (Croatia) and a girl had recommended me to post in another local Facebook group. The group was called Proizvodi Bez Glutena.

While in Belgrade I had asked about gluten free restaurants in Novi Sad and a girl replied “Gluten morgen”.

As she only put this (gluten morgen) I thought it was a way of saying hello… how silly of me! When I discussed it with Milena, the girl I went to the Masa Restoran in Belgrade with, she told me it was the name of a restaurant. Milena then called a friend of hers living there to check if it was open. He said yes. Great! I already had a place to go to eat gluten-free in Novi Sad! We would go to eat at the Gluten Morgen restaurant at 16 Stražilovska Street in Novi Sad.

As you see in the pictures, the restaurant is a very small place just behind the University. Very close to the river and a 15 minute walk from the Cathedral.

It is a very cozy place decorated with drawings and some posters with a touch of humor: “Keep calm and avoid gluten”. It is divided into two areas: smokers and non-smokers. I admit that this surprised me a bit. It is something we are not used to in Spain (and I dare say in most Western European countries).

They mainly offer pasta, pizza and crepes. In fact, I would say it is the safest place to eat gluten-free pizza in Novi Sad.

Djurica ordered a spaghetti bolognese. Carlos ordered a gluten-free pizza called “Wolfgang”. His pizza had tomato, oregano, ham, onion, bell pepper, cheese, mushrooms and arugula. I ordered the house pizza, the “Gluten Morgen”! Mine had tomato, oregano, ham, mozzarella and mushrooms.

Just like at GlutenNo restaurant in Belgrade, I asked my colleagues what they thought of the food and they both said “very tasty”.

The truth is that we ate wonderfully! And I was very happy, since I had not eaten the gluten-free pizza in Belgrade, so I ate it in Novi Sad. This is another city that I will definitely want to return to and discover it with time and leisure.

After leaving the restaurant, we walked around for an hour before heading back to Belgrade for the airport. We walked along the promenade and the pedestrian streets of the center until we reached the Cathedral.

Then he drove us back to the airport and our trip was over… I can’t wait to go back to Serbia and Croatia! I think they would be a good destination to go with “Vicky“.

P.S.: Please keep in mind that in this blog I share my trips, anecdotes and experiences about gluten free travel around the world. It is possible that, in any of my trips, I go to some restaurant not trained by the associations where the risk of being contaminated with gluten exists. I kindly ask you to also take into account that the list of references can change. Please, always double check before eating in the restaurants we recommend. Thank you very much!
