I'm thinking about going on another overseas trip and don't mind preparing some meals but would also like to go out to cafes/restaurants where I can actually eat. So I'm wondering which places can easily cater for us gluten free vegans?

I live in Melbourne (Australia) which I think is pretty easy but am not sure about other places.

My gluten free travel guide doesn't really help as it just says eat plain meat or choose fish sauce over soy sauce etc.

I'm guessing London and New York etc would be ok, right?

I went to London next year but wasn't g/f at the time, and didn't pay enough attention!

You've probably figured this from the boards already, but Portland, Oregon is definitely a great city for gluten-free vegans. Most vegan-friendly places are gluten-free friendly a well. Our fancy-ish all-vegan restaurants both have gluten-free options, we have two all vegan bakeries with gluten-free options and one all gluten-free bakery with vegan options (where you can get artisan gluten-free bread, and cupcakes, and whatnot).

I really have to go to Portland, wish it was closer to me.

What about other American cities?

Oslo, Norway - you can get a GF pizza in a typical restaurant there; a high percentage of Scandinavians are Celiac, so there is more awareness.

London - easy peasy

Boston - easy as pie; one of the biggest restaurant chain does GF bread, although I ate there before I was vegan!

Seattle, Washington- did some research when I was there to find out what to eat, wasn't disappointed

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada- has anything you could ever need! (seriously). They have a Loving Hut, and that's really good!

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada- Green Cuisine comes to mind for vegan gluten free there, I love their cooking! Plus other ppkers probably have more great tips for the two British Columbia recommendations.
If you go to either of the latter two cities, you could make a day of it and hit Seattle during the same trip! It's a couple hours' drive from Vancouver and there is a high-speed ferry crossing that will take you there from Victoria, with vegan products onboard (hummus!).

Thanks for all of your tips.

I've decided on a holiday to the US visiting New York. SF and Portland.. So so so excited!

Seattle has a few gluten-free bakeries, and one is all vegan. It may or may not have been the reason I moved here.

Edinburgh! When I lived in Scotland, I LIVED for going to stay in Edinburgh for a while. It was like an oasis of delicious Gluten-Free Veganity. Happycow lists a lot of good restaurants, but even at a few non-veg places I found food to eat. My favourite place, L'Artichaut, has been assimilated into its non-veg sister restaurant, but I haven't been there since. David Bann is good, and if you ask, they'll give you a menu annotated with everything that's gluten free and how to order almost anything to be gluten-free. The Baked Potato Shoppe is the best place ever in the history of anything, and it's pretty cheap. Henderson's Bistro is also amazing.

Basically, find your way to Scotland.
