Finiky Fresh brings its gluten-free goodness to West End
Gone are the days when having a dietary intolerance resulted in you being labelled ‘fussy’ – it’s an unalienable right to be able to find gluten or dairy-free alternatives when you eat out and about. Finiky Fresh Gluten Free is a popular eatery that has brought its lauded treats and savoury snacks to West End, giving anyone that has been called picky a place to find heaven on a plate.
The push for a greater range of gluten and dairy-free options is not a new trend, but Finiky Fresh Gluten Free is one eatery that has led the charge for intolerance-friendly dining in Brisbane since opening in 2014. After starting as a small raw treat and coffee outlet in Taringa, Finiky has grown considerably by introducing savoury choices and more substantial meals – drawing in diners that would have once been unable to consume anything on a conventional menu due to their dietary requirements. Seeking a larger kitchen to create, owner Lisa Trickey found a cosy space on the outskirts of West End – shifting Finiky’s operations to the inner south where more hungry mouths were waiting.
Finiky Fresh Gluten Free’s offering is set to grow even further after the shift to West End, now boasting not only a cabinet chock-full of moreish morsels but also a full sit-down menu to peruse at leisure. Diners can start the day off right with the likes of a gluten-free bagel topped with free-range bacon, fried egg and tomato relish, Finiky’s seasonal dukkah, paleo plate, housemade hash browns or signature pancake stack. At lunch, the kitchen whips up a range of loaded bagels (sourced from The Bagel Boys), with the likes of pulled beef, salmon, chargrilled vegetables and fresh avocado available. Long-time fans can rest easy knowing that the iconic range of gluten, dairy and sugar-free slices, biscuits, pies and sausage rolls are still available, as well as Blackstar Coffee with soy and almond milk. The coming months will see Lisa reintroduce take-home meals, as well as a potential pop-up restaurant serving gluten-free dinners.
