Does anyone know of any gluten free restaurants and/or places that have gluten free items in Pennsylvania - especially the Philadelphia area and Poconos area. Thanks as always for the info.

Hi,

http://www.mrritts.com is the bakery in Philadelphia. I have never been there.

I would like to hear of more gluten free restaurants or places with gluten free stuff. I live near Scranton.

I live in the Philadelphia area and have been to Mr. Ritts. It is a bakery near 5th and South Street. I have tried the bread but don't like it. I buy my pizza crusts there. They are delicious!!! Other than that, I go to Outback, PF Changs, and sushi restaurants for the most part. I know that the Peking Duck at Margarate Kuo's in Wayne is gluten-free. The chef walked me through all the steps of making it. You just have to ask for rice instead of the pancakes that it comes with and bring your own sauce. Supposedly Django in center city is gluten friendly but I have not tried that yet. Hope this helps!

The Chart House at Penn's Landing, Sullivan's Steakhouse in KOP, Carrabas in Springfield Mall and Vinny Testa's of Boston in Wynnewood have all served great gluten-free meals to my celiac daughter in the past few months. Most better steakhouses will accomodate you with a filet, potato, salad and Chart House and Sullivan's are top notch. Carrabas posts a gluten-free menu on the net -bring it with you since when we went they did not have it yet but did prepare the meal properly. Vinny T's was a lucky shot - I called ahead and the chef knew all about the gluten-free diet and made my daughter the best Italian meal since gluten-free. I was at the Dietary Shoppe today - it is on Ridge Ave. Follow Ridge Ave East and it come up very quickly after the off ramp on the right. They have tons of gluten-free goodies.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
