Joe's Crab Shack & Pf Changs
0

10 posts in this topic

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.

What dessert did you get at P.F. Changs?

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!!!

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
