Never heard of it. We had a Celiac Kids picnic last weekend and the lady from the association didn't mention it. There had been a restaurant in SW Calgary that was mostly if not all gluten free, but it shut down after about 6 months.

I love A Tasty Menu! I am a single mother of three and yes we all have Celiac Disease, I eat here 2-3 times a week and find that the food and price draw me back time after time. I can ether go to the mall and have a xl combo at newyork fries or I can go to A Tasty Menu and get a wonderful soup and sandwich.

Some of our favs are Yam fries, soup, curry, pizza and cake. I didn't know how I was going to servive with three kids and no take out pizza and this solves that problem. I call them up, pick up and there is no worries about CC at all.

I will say the area is not the best and the decor is not that great but the food and the people are, and you can't beat having a meal that you don't have to worry about.

Go try you will love it.

Yes, I have actually I was there twice in two days. Their food is all made from scratch and they serve pizza and delicious chocolate cake. They have a children's menu also. Even though they are far away from me, it is worth it to drive there. There is absolutely no gluten in that restaurant. Go and enjoy it.

"A Tasty Menu" is a wonderful restaurant! They have a very vegan friendly menu as well as their gluten free fare.

Their Hours are:

Wed-Sat 11 to 8

Sunday 11 to 7

Closed Monday & Tuesday

And they are in a kinda funny location, but great if you want to shop at Shun Fat grocery store on the way there or back! (I find that I have to eat more asian foods to help cut out gluten)

Tasty Menu address is:

105-4202 17 Avenue SE

Calgary, AB, Canada

(403) 235-0031

No it won't, Lisa. I think I alone am paying their bills. I have taken four people there who have been bringing their friends and family and I have been there three times this week.

Talk about an addict.

I'm taking friends there tonight, can't wait to try it out. I saw their write up in rising women magazine.

In addition to the celiac I can't eat corn, potatoes, coconut and a whole bunch of other things which make most "gluten free" foods totally out for me. But when I called to make the reservation it sounds like I'll have no trouble eating there!!!!!!!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm pizza I miss pizza

Don't let the exterior fool you! My boy's loved it! " This is better than McDonalds" says my 11 year old!

Sweet potatoe fries! Cheese bun hamburgers! Pepperoni Pizza for my 6 year old... and the chocolate cake sitting on the counter looks like a " repeat visit" waiting to happen!

Prices were awesome!

happy happy!

My husband and I ate there yesterday. It was great. It is a seedy area of the city, but I don't care. It was the first time I didn't have to study a menu for 30 minutes trying to figure out which item would harm me the least.

I was so excited I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! I didn't know what to order--I wanted to try everything.

For the past 2 years, I have watched my husband eat grilled chicken sandwiches and fries in just about every restaurant in this city. Now, finally, I could have that. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with yam fries, and he had the burger and fries. (I ate some of his fries, too) The food was excellent, the prices are very low.

A wonderful experience. We are going back today!

Support this restaurant!!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
