Gluten-Free Tokyo and Hong Kong Options

お久しぶりですね。 元気ですか。  It’s been a while since I last posted.  I hope all of you are doing well.  If you’re traveling through Japan or moving on to Hong Kong during your tour of Asia, I have some link love to share with you all.   First off, I still want to place a disclaimer on dining in restaurants (unless the restaurants have a certified isolated kitchen or area where they prep and cook all gluten-free foods separately from those with gluten).   I cannot make any recommendations, nor can I be held liable if any of these restaurants is unable to provide you with gluten-free food.  When choosing to eat in restaurants, you’re taking a risk.   That being said, I know how hard it is when you’re traveling and you cannot find any food to snack on or eat, and you’re desperate to find a restaurant that offers something…anything that is safe for consumption.

I’ve found a few links online that may be able to help you!  Please let me know if you do visit any of these places and if you’d like to post a review of them here.

Tokyo and Japan:

Yasuko Imabeppu’s website offers links to restaurants that apparently do offer gluten-free options.  One of the links is the cafe in Aoyama that I mentioned in a prior post.

In addition to these, Jodi Ettenberg, of the travel blog Legal Nomads, is currently on a tour of Japan where she’s documenting her gluten free travels through the country.  You can follow her via her blog above or her Facebook page.

Hong Kong:

If you’re traveling through Hong Kong, you should check out Urban Health.   They also have a Facebook page you can follow.  While I never had the opportunity to visit Hong Kong while living in Asia, I have heard that it has more options for gluten-free foods and Urban Health proves this right.   Their co-founder recently reached out to me with the intention of connecting those of us traveling or living in Asia who need to follow a gluten-free diet.   If you happen to live in Hong Kong, or you plan on visiting, definitely get in touch with them.

That’s it for now.  I will be back with more updates and more tips on how to stay healthy while living or traveling through Japan.  And, just so you know, I may soon be starting a new life in Korea in the near future, which will require learning how to live gluten-free in Korea.

Lots of love to you all.  Stay healthy and happy while you’re in beautiful Japan!
