Fructose friendly yum cha and oriental tapas is what you’ll find on the menu at Bohdi Restaurant Bar located in the Sydney CBD. Set tucked away beneath tranquil old trees next to Cathedral Square, this is a restaurant definitely worth a visit for a tasty banquet!
Not only can you find delicious fructose friendly options at Bohdi, but because they follow the beliefs of the Buddhist diet all dishes are vegan (meaning also dairy free!) with gluten free options also available. It’s even possible to order FODMAP friendly. There are various philosophies followed within the Buddhist religion, mainly dependent on region. Many of these variations believe in not consuming onion and garlic making it the perfect match for those on a fructose free diet. Even with the lack of onion and garlic it is certain that the food did NOT lack flavour! Everything we tried during our visit was fantastic and full of deliciousness. The faux ‘meat’ is also one to try and is fantastic imitation of the real thing. Our meals were presented beautifully in the tranquil setting, with the outdoor seating looking like the perfect escape on a warm summers night. Our visit was dampened by the rain, however the seating inside was also peaceful and relaxing, dining by candlelight.
With an extensive dinner menu and three of us dining together we decided to start with a selection of tapas followed by mains to share. Here is what we tried:
– Japanese Pumpkin Gow Dumplings
– BBQ Steamed Buns
– Taiwanese Spiced Soy Wontons
– San Choy Bao
– Vermicelli Noodles
– Massaman Curry with ‘Chicken’
Bohdi Restaurant is located at 2-4 College St Sydney 2000, between St Mary’s Cathedral and the swimming pool. For some of the best fructose friendly Pan-Asian cuisine, I’d recommend checking out it out next time you’re in the area.
