Ordering Thai
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been missing Thai food like nobody's business, and I was wondering what experiences people have had ordering it. Are there any dishes that are typically gluten-free? How easy is it to get something specially made? (Are there any safe Thai places in Boise?)

My experience has been that it varies on the restaurant -- some places, for instance, puts soy sauce in their pad thai. I've generally had pad thai or curry without any problems.

I've had a lot of problems with Thai places here in Kona and decided to make what I could myself.

At one place Itried to explain to the waiter not to use any flour and he took the flowers off the table.

Every time I tried to go out I wind up getting glutened and am miserable for the next few days.

Good luck, hope you can find something

Different Thai restaurants prepare many of the same dishes differently. Soy sauce is not a common ingredient in true Thai food, but it is used a lot in certain Thai restaurants in North America to suit local tastes. The more traditional sauce is fish sauce, which is almost always gluten-free. (It should be made only from fish, salt, sugar, and water.) Oyster sauce is used in some dishes, and contains gluten. So--in whichever Thai restaurant you want to try, ask them which kind of sauce they use. You'll have to decide whether to trust that their fish sauce is safe, if that's what they use.

my mission last weekend was to order thai for the first time. i took my dining card which is written in english and thai and went to several restaurants to ask them if they could make something. and i went early - 4pm or so. one place was wishy washy so i walked out and finally found a place where the girl i spoke with couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. and i didn't get sick. so it is possible, go early, talk to the manager and show a dining card and order early. it worked for me and i swear it was the best meal i've had since March when I went gluten-free!!!

I've had Pad Thai from my local Thai place many times without feeling ill effects. I've also had it at a place near my friend's house and felt fine. Pick up Stix has gluten free Pad Thai...

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
