On my latest trip to London I was determined to visit some gluten free hotspots that I’d heard so much about online. Yorica! was right up there!
Yorica! is an ice cream parlour on Wardour Street in London. It’s an easy walk from both Covent Garden and Oxford Street. And best of all, it’s free from all 14 major allergens!
Now, I know you might find that hard to believe, but trust me, it’s true. It’s gluten free, soy free*, dairy free, nut free, egg free – the list goes on! Basically, there are no allergens on the premises and it’s also 100% vegan. The products they produce off site are also made in a dedicated allergen-free facility, woohoo!
They offer a selection of soft-serve and scooped ice cream and have a huge range of toppings for you to add. They also offer milkshakes and a selection of hot combo options. The combo options can be served with either waffles or a crepe – made fresh to order. AH-MAZING!
I was actually feeling pretty full when we went to Yorica! (we’d been distracted by the new GFC in Leon on our way) but I felt, since this was potentially my only chance to ever go, that I had to go all out.
I decided to have the “After 9” combo with waffles! This was mint chocolate ice cream and cookies and cream ice cream served with chocolate sauce and a sandwich cookie!
Long story short, it was phenomenal. You would never know that it was free from anything as it tasted incredible. I wish I could have tried more menu items so I’ll just have to go back.
I really wish we had something like this in Scotland. I’d be there every weekend!
Have you been to Yorica! yet? Let me know what you tried!
*When I visited some products still contained soy but since then it has been completely removed from their menu – YAY for all you soy free folk!
