Portland Area Restaurant

11 posts in this topic

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!

    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening
    • New to this--first gluttened exp. How to feel better?
      Just adding to what others have said.  It does take some time but it's likely you will start to feel better.  It took me about a year but now I feel great.  A good probiotic might help.  I use one from Synergy that my naturopathic doctor sells at her office.  I have gotten in the habit of emailing restaurants before I try them and have had very good luck.  One owner of a very popular restaurant in my area took the time to reply and said she had Celiac disease (she sent great detailed info about their food).  Many of the people responding will even tell you who to ask for when you come in.  Good luck and hoping you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
