Kapitol Kitchen Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Since being diagnosed gluten intolerant nearly two years ago, I’ve found my menu options have drastically diminished. Sure, it’s much easier being “GF” these days then it would have been a decade ago, awareness is pretty high. But still, there are plenty of places I go where I have a choice of just one or two items. I’ve even been places where there were no options! Let’s just say I eat salad way more than I would like, as I often have no other choice.

When I heard that a totally gluten free restaurant was opening in Perth, I was pretty stoked. At Kapitol Kitchen I can eat EVERYTHING on the menu. Talk about being spoiled for choice!

As well as being gluten-free friendly everything on the menu is also refined sugar free. People with dairy free, vegetarian and vegan diets can enjoy plenty of options too.

Kapitol Kitchen is a more upmarket offering than Health Freak Café, though the healthy menu has a similar feel. No surprise then that it has the same owners. The interior has had a schmick fit out. No expense seems to have been spared. There’s plenty of booths and tables upstairs and down, as well as a lovely balcony if you can ignore the busy Wanneroo Road humming outside.

For our first trip Little Chef and I dropped in for an afternoon snack, to check out the new spot and look over its menu.

Little Chef enjoyed a strawberry smoothie. I chose a raw slice from the cabinet. I had hoped they’d be more options than that (like a yummy chunk of GF cake), but it’s still early days.

Both times I had a delicious pot of pomegranate tea, which is served on a beautiful wooden platter. There was another type of tea on the menu I was curious about “Paris”, as I’d never heard of it. I asked the waitress what it was, she didn’t know and didn’t ask anyone else either, which was disappointing.

Lunch was a hit. I was stoked to have battered fish for only the second time in two years! (The other spot was the yummy Piggy Food Co). Fresh red spot emperor ($26) was coated in a lush, crispy batter and served with equally crisp sweet potato fries and a lemon mayo.

My Mum loved the fresh and spicy Thai beef salad ($17) which is packed with tender sliced beef, coriander, carrot, red cabbage, spring onion, bean shoots and rocket with crispy fried shallots and a nam gin dressing.

My Dad chose the veg haloumi panini ($24) with roasted zucchini, eggplant, peppers, sundried tomato, spinach and a herby pesto aioli. A basket with sweet potato fries are on the side.

If you’ve got kids in tow, there is a kid’s corner with plenty of toys, activities and books – as well as a tasty kids menu perfect for kiddies with a gluten intolerance.

At Kapitol Kitchen, you can be sure every choice is a gluten-free one and pretty much guilt free too! This is invaluable to coeliacs, as well as people like me who would like a little more variety in their food choices. I’ll definitely be back.
