Places I Ate In Paris!
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello Fellow Celiacs-

I had posted a few questions about traveling to Paris on this list and I wanted to share my list of restaurants. I had a wonderful time and never got glutened. I found the servers and waiters to be very accomodating... I do not speak french, although I definitely tried. I had such a great trip.

I hope this helps some of you that are soon traveling to Paris!

Ok, so I here is my list (I kept a journal)...

In order in which I ate... I showed my dining card at each place as I ordered!

1) La Table d'Hediard

21, place de la Madeleine

(its on the second floor- first floor wonderful shop of fresh fruits,

wines, jams, and chocolate on the first!)

A tad pricey, but by far my favorite and most delicious meal!!

I ordered Fillet of Roast Beef, fresh greens on the side (30 euros!),

and sorbet for dessert (with out the cookie)

2) Cafe Madeline

1, Rue Trochet - 35, Place de La Madeleine

Only for drinks.

3) Cafe de l'Olympia

I had an Omlet w/chorizo, onions, peppers... with OJ

(sorry don't know address, walking distance from the Arc de Triomphe)

4) Le Reminet

3 Rue Des Grands Degres

(near Notre Dame- probably the one that you have)

I ordered the white fish special of the day, I'm not a fish person,

but it was pretty good.

5) Hagen Daaz

I ate a couple different ones, chocolate, one scoop in a dish

6) Monoprix grocery type stores

Found allergo brand gluten free stuff-- loved the chocolate chip

muffins. chocolate chip cookies not so good, herb cracker things-funny

texture, and saltine like crackers- not sure. The wine at this store

was very reasonably priced. I also purchased some corn chips.

7) Relais Trochet

14, Rue Trochet

The guy that helped me, was wonderful. I showed him my french dining

card, and he responded "no problem". He was truly great! I had a

chicken salad, with out dressing, and served with lemon. It was very

tasty.

Here is the link of the card I liked the most- (I also printed one

English, so I knew what it said!)

8) Took day trip to Versailles, I packed snacks. I ate fries at the

little food place in the gardens. They were tasty.

9) Indiana Cafe (near Opera)- I think there are several-

7, bd des Capucines

It is a very American/variety menu... I had a salad, with avacado, and

a magarita.

10) Went to Louvre- heard good things about Cafe Marley... opted to

not go, with a burger costing 19 euros...

11) Instead we went to Le Musset (and I guess they have a website -

www.lemusset.com)...

5, rue de l'Echelle

We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. I had a lovely salad -

with chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, rice, lettuce, carrots and maybe

more! And they also had Berthillion sorbets and ice cream. I asked for

creme broule for dessert, but the waiter, wasn't sure if flour was

mixed in with it... so I had the most delicious cherry and strawberry

sorbet.

12) Be sure to stop by the Fauchon shop for jams... and be sure to

stop by the Mustard Shop Maille-- fresh mustard- if you like that sort

of thing.

I think that is it. I stayed near the Opera and Le Madeleine area... so most places are near that.

I would suggest that you bring a french dining card. Also pack snacks.

I carried a Think Organic bar with me at all times. It was nice to

have snacks in the hotel room also.

If you have any other questions, let me know. I had such a wonderful time in Paris!

Have a nice trip!

Tanya in Chicago

Tanya--thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm so excited that you posted this list and had such a great time (with no gluten problems) in Paris, especially since I'll be there on May 24th.

By the way, when you say chicken salad do you mean a salad with grilled chicken on it or chicken salad made with mayonaise? Did you find a lot of things had mayo in them? I'm really not a fan, so I was just wondering.

Hi,

Chicken salad was a lettuce salad with grilled chicken.

I don't remember seeing much of anything with mayo...

Have a great trip!

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      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.
