SpudBar gluten free baked potatoes

SpudBar is a baked potato franchise with many locations around Melbourne and Victoria and currently just one store in Brisbane.

They are 100% gluten free* which is easy for them to do as it is ‘real food’ (i.e. primarily vegetables with some protein options) and no bread is needed!

*NB I have noticed the cracked pepper at the tables has a may contain gluten statement on it.

A quick meal for lunch is often a tricky for a coeliac, so SpudBar is a good casual option and you can’t really go wrong with a baked spud! A potato meal averages around $13 plus a drink.

You select a standard potato or a sweet potato and then choose your toppings, either from the menu on the board or build your own from the ingredients displayed in the counter.  Salads and poke bowls are also available. Look out for their labels showing which options are low sugar, dairy free, high protein or vegan.

They frequently have specials and a current one for 2020 is the chicken caesar spud. Some of the menu options I have tried are:

Classic cheese – melted garlic butter, tasty cheese, corn, shredded cabbage, light sour cream & spring onions (see picture above)

Bacon & cheese – bacon, tasty cheese, mushrooms, wild rocket, tomato salsa, light sour cream & spring onions (see picture below)

Mexican Chicken – free range chicken, mild chilli bean, wild rocket, carrot & corn with a jalapeño mayonnaise (see picture below)

Beef bolognese –  tasty cheese, peas, carrot, corn, light sour cream & spring onions (see picture below)

I find a potato really filling so don’t need anything more, but if you are after dessert or a snack for later, they also have delicious chocolate brownies.

Spudbar has plenty of locations around Melbourne, including five in the city centre (see list below).  They are often in food courts or in strip shopping centres.  Can’t get to a store?  Use Uber Eats or Deliveroo to get a spud delivered to your door.

They also do catering boxes which is a great idea if you need to feed a crowd (1 box = 8-10 people).
