We had to go out twice recently for family birthdays etc. At joe's Crab Shack I asked about the menu and the restaurant manager came to the table to tell me that his wife has Celiac and that I could only eat the steamed crab legs with the butter and nothing else on the menu. I was happy to at least share in the meal and I felt fine afterwards.

We also went to PF Changs... my first time since going gluten-free... and that was a truly wonderful experience! The dessert was to die for!!!!! The chicken was lightly fried in a light batter of potato starch and was some of the best I've ever had. Now I want to find some potato starch so I can make something similar at home. Anyway, it was great to be able to have a night out and not have to worry about the consequences.

It was the only one listed on the gluten-free menu. I think its called a chocolate dome? Rich chocolate covered in a rasberry sauce. YUM!

At the one in Boston there was no dessert listed, but the waitress told me about the chocolate dome. Oh my god - yum!

You can also get gluten free fried rice at PF Chang's even though it's not on the menu (I'm a server at Chang's). Just tell your server you want your fried rice made with the gluten free sauce, if they give you any grief (which they shouldn't unless they're just incredibly bad at their job) then ask to see the manager.

I had a great first experience at PF Chang's in New Orleans on my trip there. They gave me a gluten free menu. I shared the gluten-free lettuce wraps with my nonceliac pal and we both enjoyed that as well as the chocolate dome dessert. My meal was scallops and they were spectacular.
I was SOOO delighted!

If you want to make that cake at home, look for the Emerill's flourless chocolate torte.

How funny to find this string...last weekend I was DYING for PF Changs. We ordered the kids some pizza and headed out. I felt like a teenager on her first date. So we get there only to find a 2 1/2 hour wait. Needless to say we ate elsewhere but my craving is still out of control, lol. Reading this just made me even hungrier for it. Maybe I'll make the hubby go out with me again this weekend for lunch!

Another tip.....our PF Changs take reservations.....maybe they all do! That way you shouldn't have to wait that long. ;) I love the Phillip's Better Lemon Chicken!!!
