Having a friend with gluten intolerance, I witness how difficult it can be, to enjoy a decent meal when dining out. Not only are options limited, but several essential ingredients (eg sauces) has to be omitted from the dish, which definitely made it, well, not yummy AT ALL. When it comes to dessert, it’s usually more dismal. No cakes! To err on the side of safety, he’ll either stick to fresh fruit, or have nothing at all. Likewise, lactose intolerant people, also have many dietary restrictions, especially when it involves sweet treats.
Open Door Policy fills the gap in Singapore’s gourmet scene with a brand new gluten- and dairy- free menu. Yes, you read it right, an ENTIRE menu, safe for people with gluten and dairy sensitivities. Chef Ryan Clift, who has food allergies himself, passionately developed the menu over a span of 6 months. In order not to sacrifice taste and texture, Chef Ryan works with alternative food sources, substitute ingredients, as well as fermentation and pickling techniques.
