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.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
