Iconic Melbourne eatery Stalactites and its little sibling Hella Good have become the first Greek restaurants in Australia to be accredited by Coeliac Australia, given the big stamp of approval for their new gluten-free menu!
Now with an offering of gluten-free pita, dips, grilled meats, traditional Greek dishes, chips and more, Nicole Papasavas, owner of both Stalactites and Hella Good, says the restaurant teams are excited to offer gluten-free customers an extensive choice from both menus.
“The great news about becoming accredited by Coeliac Australia is that more people can enjoy our fresh, home cooked Greek flavours with total confidence and not having to worry,” says Nicole Papasavas.
“Many people with coeliac disease haven’t eaten souvlaki for years, so you can imagine how excited we are to be accredited by Coeliac Australia! We can’t wait to host them at both Hella Good and Stalactites restaurants,” continues Nicole Papasavas.
Receiving accreditation involves implementing new procedures and processes for sourcing, segregating and serving food as well as in-depth education and training to ensure that there is no cross contamination or traces of gluten through the storage, preparation, and cooking steps of the meal delivery process
The new menu includes gluten-free souvlaki, featuring grilled meats or a gluten-free vegetarian fritter, topped with tzatziki, tomato, onion, lettuce, all wrapped in a gluten-free pita wrap.
Extensive gluten free menus are available at both Hella Good and Stalactites.
