I Review Sirenis Gluten-Free Fish & Chips

Gluten-free fish and chips has mostly eluded the gluten free community just because it’s hard to make in a commercial setting. Don’t get all angry because you know there are boxed and frozen brands in the supermarket you can get your mitts on. But what about a restaurant where you can eat in safety and cross contamination isn’t an issue?

What if I told you there is a gluten-free fish and chip store just forty minutes from my place?

Sirenis Fish & Chips, their website is HERE,  blew me out of the water from the moment I placed my order to the moment they handed me my take-out bag of BBQ gluten-free chicken wings.

My mother and sister have raved about Sirenis for a long time since they found it, and all I can think about, is “when can I get my hands on some of this?” (One Thursday I actually had my little sister bring me some to work, an hour away and I ate it and it was so good. That was the first time I ever had it, she took a picture of me eating it and then sent it to me, then I lost it) Finally I had a chance to make my own way to Sirenis with my wife and daughter to try the gluten-free fish and chips first hand.

Appetizer: gluten-free homemade mozzarella sticks. I don’t even remember the last time I’ve ever had mozzarella sticks? You can probably get them in stores, but they will never be anywhere close to the crispy and gooey ones I had. A huge plate of cheesy heart stopping food that I would travel for hours to get my hands on. These are worth the trip to Sirenis for sure, even if you’re not a fish fan.

this. is. bliss

There is always negativity with reviews. Mine isn’t as bad as you think. French fries. While Sirenis has outstanding gluten-free bater fish, the fries left me wanting something more. They didn’t stand out. Nothing special about them, they were just ordinary run-of-the-mill fries. Win some, lose some.

Entree? The fish? Let me tell you. I’ve been medically diagnosed with Celiac Disease since 2008 and I have been without a good battered fish since then. A fresh piece of gluten-free halibut is exactly what my taste buds needed. The brain fires off on all cylinders when you eat this food. Sirenis has a gold mine when it comes to this gluten-free food sitting right in the middle of a plaza. It’s one of those word of mouth places you hear about but never find: Sirenis is the place.

I totally forgot to take a picture before I started eating.

Two more orders for GF fish and chips was buzzing around me as we left for the day. Judging by their food and their two others patrons when I left, they do good for themselves and are a welcome institution to the Celiac and gluten-free community.

I’m going back to Sirenis when ever I can, even if its just for the mozzarella sticks, but next time you’re in Canada and want a great greasy spoon meal kind of feel, get your ass to Sirenis. I can almost guarantee you’re gluten-free experience will be amazing and you’ll be counting down the days until your next visit.

That and gluten-free mozzarella sticks.
