My in-laws sent me a menu from a restaurant called "Corbetts" in the Portland, Oregon area, that has a menu that is mostly gluten-free, and each menu item is clearly labeld Gluten Free! Is that cool or what. Unfortunately I am in Alaska, and can't go and check it out, but if any of you try it let us know how it is! It's a fish and chips type place. :lol:

Hey,

I live in Portland and yes, Corbetts (Corbett Fish House) is so great about gluten free. They make nearly everyting with rice flour except for bread, it's awesome.

Just thought I would update the Portland, Oregon area list of Gluten Free options for eating out.

In addition to Corbett's Fish House there is of course PF Changs. There's also Andina in NW Portland, the Pearl District to be exact. I think it's on the corner of 13th and Glisan.

As for yummy tasty treats you have New Seasons on Division with all kinds of goodies to choose from that are Gluten Free. You can order amazingly delicious cakes from Piece Of Cake bakery in Sellwood. And recently Good Cookie, Bad Cookie re-opened and now has gluten-free treats available. I had some of their home made chocolate chip cookies and they're good! The young chef is working with even more gluten-free options due to demand. If you've ever drove down SE Milwaukie avenue on your way to Sellwood... you've seen this house. It looks like a life size gingerbread house. The staff is very nice and will give you samples without having to ask.

Another update...

I just found out about a local grocery store called Health Nut Nutrition Center - 14634 SE Sunnyside Rd. in Clackamas, Oregon ( 503-558-8284 ). They cater to Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and other "free" goods. I'd say at least half if not more is dedicated to gluten-free products though. It's a small store in a strip mall but they carry things I've never seen in Whole Foods, New Seasons or Wild Oats. I recently picked up some very good bread and pizza crusts. They have frozen goods too and they told me they are getting more gluten-free lines in a week or two. If you're looking for something that you haven't been able to find in other stores, chances are they have it. If not, I bet they'll order it for you. Very nice and friendly!

From Clackamas Mall, go east on Sunnyside Rd till you see the signs for Albertsons and McDonalds... they're in the same strip mall.

Okay... tried Andina restaurant on Friday night and it is tasty!! If you used to love to go out to a real nice restaurant once in a while and live it up, but can't due to living gluten-free... those days are over. This place is nice, servers and staff are friendly and informative and the food is really good. Really good. The gluten-free specific menu is two pages long and there's a good variety to choose from. Very diverse items and easily something there for everyone. My wife and I chose to order a few things from the small plates menu and eat Tapas / Appetizer style. With five items... we were incredibly full but everything was so yummy that we couldn't stop eating.

If you're in Portland or just visiting... check this place out for sure. It's worth the trip. If you plan on going during the weekend for dinner, make sure to call earlier in the day or the day before to make a reservation because they fill up quick.

Hey there,

in Portland are also Outback Steakhouses (6 alone there as of what i saw on their homepage).

www.outback.com

They have the gluten-free signs on their menu as well. I ate there already 4 times since going gluten-free and was feeling well all the time.

Hugs, Stef

Hi,

My husband and I drove up and ate at Corbett's Fish House today. What a treat! Good "regular" food that I didn't have to worry about! I haven't had either fried fish or french fries at a restaurant since I was diagnosed--I really enjoyed it. And to top it off gluten-free cheesecake! I haven't had cheesecake at all since I was diagnosed almost two years ago. It was delicious. I was elated! Good service and pleasant owners, too.

Great experience--I recommend Corbett's to others!

Best Wishes!

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
             
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.
