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!

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
