Japanese Hibachi, Can I Eat There Safely?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking of asking for a private room/table and bringing my on gluten free tamari. i think the soup i have to avoid- and most likely the salad since i am sure their ginger dressing had gluten-soy sauce, but the filet and fried rice with my tamari should be fine right?

any tips to help me pull this off, if its possible are appreaciated.

I have triumph cards on the way, but am anxious to go. we were twice a week regulars and im in withdrawels <_<

You dining cards should be a great help.

With the two restaurants in our small town, duh, that's not one of them, so not too much help from me.

Try going during a non hectic time and discuss your options with the manager. Often, they are very helpful. But, as you know, outside of your own kitchen, there is always a risk. <_<

Shushi, with your own tamari, sounds good.

I hope that you can find something wonderful. :) And if you do, please share.

I've had great success a few times at a local hibachi place by me using my triumph dining cards.

I bring my San-J Wheat Free Tamari, give them my dining card and ask them to make my food in the back with a clean pan and clean utensils.

I sit at the hibachi table with everyone else, and they just bring my food out to me.

My favorite thing to get is the hibachi steak and shrimp and the fried rice.

Unfortunately, as you thought you can't have the soup or salad (atleast not with the ginger dressing. They usually bring me oil and vinegar). But I love going!!

Thank you guys!! For more info, you can email me at
    • Kidney disease question
      GFR ranges are very strange.  We went through this with my husband.  Did you notice in Icelandgirl's link that there is no range that is considered good and normal?  I just had mine tested and the report said that normal was > 60.  As your report says, your value is only a problem if there is other evidence of kidney damage.

      Hi Matt I'd love answers to this one too. My own levels have varied since I have been monitored, over the last three or so years.   I asked my GP about this and I seem to recall she said to me that levels of hydration affect this number.  i.e. when my figures were in the 90s it was because I was super-hydrated. When my numbers were in the 70s she wasn't worried, either! I'm hoping someone with a better knowledge of these matters will chime in but the last time I was tested my gastroenterologist was very pleased with my kidney and liver function numbers - so it seems to me that when my own numbers were in the 70s on a couple of occasions I must have been  less well hydrated when I had the test those times? And that these numbers are therefore subject to variation.

      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.

      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. Thank You,
