What Do You Order At Non-Chain Chinese Restaurants?
0

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering - for those of you who do eat out, what do you order?  They had rice noodles and pad thai on the menu, but I was too afraid to get it.  I ended up with steamed rice and steamed broccoli - asked them to make sure that there was no sauce, and to be careful bringing it out.  I feel fine, but who knows.  Are there other options?

I haven't gone into a Chinese restaurant other than PF Chang's in years, but when I did I ordered vegetables with white sauce, which is made with corn starch.

I love Chinese and Thai food.  I ask the waiter/waitress what ingredients they use to prepare the dish.  We were at a restaurant Saturday and could not eat there.  They used flour in every sauce and breading of meats.  There was not one dish gluten free.  I was going to settle for white Jasmine rice but rice will raise my sugar levels to the max.  I offered to sit and drink water but my family wouldn't agree to that. . . we left the restaurant.  I have DH and maybe the visual of Celiac makes them more aware of my condition.  

 

We have an Asian restaurant close by that uses corn starch instead of flour to 'batter' their meats.  They do not use soy on any of their dishes.  They serve white and brown rice and sweeten their tea with honey.  I love being able to eat there.

 

I would suggest you call around to see if any restaurants serve gluten free dishes.  

 

Good luck!

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
