Philadelphia, Pa - Tips?
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello All,

 

I will be traveling to Philadelphia, PA in June for three days. I will be staying in Glouchester, NJ (ten min away from downtown Philly.)

 

Do any of you live there, or have you traveled there? I have the findmeglutenfree app for my phone, but I also like to get recommendations from the 'natives' whenever possible. 

 

I did search the group and found a post from 2013, but it wasn't too helpful. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi I live  in Western Pa but  travel  to Philly  often.... Gluten Free Philly (mike)  has  a great  listing of  places  to  eat.....Do  go to South Philly  to Taffet's  Bakery.... Omar  has  the  best  breads.....there  is  a  restaurant  a crossed  or  up the  street  from him  who uses  his  bread s  ... very good,  I also  get  a  roll from him  & go have  a philly cheesesteak  while  there..... Pasta  Pomadoro  in Voorhees, NJ  is  excellent. Worth  the trip....a favorite  of many....

Also  in  that   area  is  Sweet Notes  Bagels... google them &  they sell  to many  places out  there so  you can fing  a  café  who  has  them for  breakfast....

Jules  gluten-free  pizza  has  several pizza  shops around....

Plus  of  course  all the  chains  are  available  too.... WE love  Maggiano's ( sp?) having  a  brain  fog  day, sorry) call  ahead  for  reservations  as it gets  crazy   & also  if  you give  them a  day or two notice  they will  make  gluten-free pasta  if  they know you are  coming....There menu is on  their  website.....

also  I like  to  just  google  gluten-free in Philly & it brings  up tons  of  places  the  gluten-free  apps  don't....

there  is  a good  Brazilian  place  to in  Sunnyhill...forget  the name....

download the Gluten Free Philly app!!  It's available for Iphone and Android.  I live in Delaware and follow the Gluten Free Philly blog, and he posted a Living Social deal on Facebook for Pasta Pomodoro.  I've never been, but I just bought it based on mamaw's recommendation.  Here's the link if you're interested: https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/1105727-30-to-spend-on-food-and-drink?ref=share-post_purchase-copy_box-web-deals&rui=38122363&rpi=157935109 

 

Hope this helps!

Hey GlutenStinks..I'll be going to Phili in Jun as well. A place called Uncle oogies looks good! There are 3 locations. Taffetts bakery seems good to n they provide breads, rolls, crust to other gluten-free establishments.  I'd love for my kids to have a Phili cheesesteak on a gluten-free roll. 

I m going the beginning of Jun and if I remember I'll post here to discuss the delicious findings. : )

Well my visit was Phili was short lived n extremely hectic. We only managed to go to 1 pizza joint  and 1 bakery, SWEET FREEDOM. The goodies there are absolutely fabulous especially the chocolate chip cookie sandwich filled with cream n dipped iin chocolate OMG!! so-o-o-o good!!!!! but very expensive like $4.50. The Pizza place we went to is called 

Bianca Pizza and Trattoria, 

and the gluten-free pizza was excellent!! It was the size of a small pizza about 10" and cost $9.50 for cheese or $10.50 for pepperoni, which is in line pricewise with regular pizza. My kids loved it and ate a whole 1 each! Now be forewarned--I am not sure if any cross contamination occured or can occur. I do not worry too much about CC as my kids are not sensitive. We do avoid CC of course but if something is CC we dont get too concerned either, but again we try to avoid as best as we can. So anybody considering trying this place out, please call and get the details on the prep. 

 

I wished my trip lasted another day, so we could try other gluten-free places. Anyway we enjoyed these 2 places.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
