Tartan Toque Logo igTartan Toque is Victoria’s Premier Wings Restaurant! New owner Brendan Walker, is a Red Seal Chef with vast experience in the hospitality industry .

He is proud to have worked at some of Canada’s best hotels: the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax;  the Shangri-la Hotel in Toronto;  Weston Bayshore, Fairmont Waterfront & Pan Pacific Hotels in Vancouver and the Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel in Victoria.

  • Perhaps what makes Brendan most qualified to undertake a makeover of this very popular restaurant is that his father has celiac disease. Brendan gets it!

Tartan Toque CIn advance of Tartan Toque’s reopening, Brendan used his skills to hone what was already a mostly celiac-friendly menu to (almost) 100% gluten-free. ‘The Toque’ has been voted Victoria’s Best Wings many times over. Each item is made in house, from scratch.

  • Wings, their sauces and – wait for it – gluten-free deep-fried pickles, calamari, crispy chicken & fries
  • All deep fryers are dedicated gluten-free
  • No loose flour on site, gluten or otherwise. All desserts are gluten free
  • Tartan Toque is pleased to offer us Whistler’s Forager Beer, ciders and a selection of carefully curated wines. 

Tartan Toque EWhere’s the gluten, then?! The only gluten-containing items on the premises are hamburger & hot dog buns, wraps, croutons and a selection of gluten beers.

If you are a celiac or require a scrupulously gluten-free meal, make that crystal clear when ordering. * Staff will swap in Origin Bakery bread or bun, refresh their gloves and settings and, importantly, will use fresh toppings from un-opened bins. **

* As in any kitchen that also handles even the smallest amount of gluten, Tartan Toque cautions that the risk of cross contact, albeit remote, may still be a possibility. 

** NOTE: for the oat sensitive: ‘pure’ oats are used in all burgers.
