I just wanted to share some information I've found out.
I've had all the vaccinations now before my trip in December and wanted to tell everyone they were all gluten free. This includes:
Dukoral (oral vaccination for traveller's diarrhea/cholera)
Malarone (Malaria drug from Glaxosmithkline)
I confirmed the last two by phone directly to the companies
(note that I'm in Canada)
I know there are a few topics on China around here, but I was hoping there might be some new information. I'll be in Shanghai for a month this December and would appreciate it if anyone could tell me about specific restaurants that were good or any other tips.
I already know about La Rose Noire, but that's about it.
Hi, I was in Vegas for 6 days in August and had a great gluten free experience. People should not be discouraged from going, I had the most options there than any other places I have ever been to. I stayed at the Venetian and ate only in the restaurants there. I should add that they were pricey, but even breakfast at the Grand Luxe Cafe I had no problem (which is not expensive).
When ordering, I make sure I am the last to order so I'm fresh on the waiters mind as they head to the kitchen. I ask them if they know what gluten is. If not, I explain and mention cross contamination.
I don't usually order steak because of marinades. There was the largest selection of gluten-free desserts I have ever seen and they were fabulous. I would especially recommend the restaurant Aqua.
I believe that someone mentioned Infusium hair products and I just wanted to add that I contacted the company by phone a few months ago to discover that they cannot guarantee their products are gluten-free. It could be hidden under 'fragrance'.
gluten-free products I use:
Dove Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash
Lancome Juicy Tubes, Star Gloss, black eyeliner, Definicils mascara
Tom's of Maine deodorant
