Hong Kong gluten free – M&S Food

By on September 29, 2015 in Travel Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

On a recent stop over through Hong Kong I was thrilled to discover the familiar Marks & Spencer Food stores there, which hadn’t come up in my many hours researching Hong Kong gluten free options for our visit.

Hong Kong M&S pasta_optI love the M&S ‘Made Without Wheat’ range in the UK, and they did have a number of these items in the Hong Kong stores I checked.  The main difference from the UK, apart from there being less of a selection, is that the gluten free items are not in a ‘free from’ section, but in with all the normal items.

They stocked biscuits, pasta, crisps, one type of bread, flours and cereal – the photos below are a selection, including my favourite cheese puffs!

Soon after I had visited, someone posted this picture of my favourite cake in the whole word – the coffee & walnut cake! You can also see the bread in this photo.

There are also naturally gluten free items in the fridge section, such as salads, veggie sticks, dips and cold meats.

We made up a selection of items for dinner a couple of times and ate it in the hotel room as it was an easy light meal and probably safer than trying to get a gluten free option for room service.  Although it was still expensive (as everything is in Hong Kong), it would still have been cheaper than room service!  Unfortunately I can’t find the receipt, but for two people I think we spent around £50.

This ‘Discover Hong Kong’ link has a good list of M&S stores in Hong Kong (as I couldn’t get the M&S site to show their locations):

I visited these two stores:

Kowloon – iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui  (walking distance from several hotels, such as the Shang-ri La)

Hong Kong Island –  Kinwick Centre Food Store (pic below), Kinwick Centre, 32 Hollywood Road, SOHO, Central (on the corner of Shelley Road where the escalators turn the corner!)
