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...

    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home.
