Glutenfree Restaurant In Or Near Hanover, Pa?

1 post in this topic

Hi everybody,

this morning i went to Hanover to train with our gymnastics women and they told me, that we will meet next wednesday and eat out together after training. They thought the chinese restaurant "Best WOK" wouldn't be bad. So i told them, that i probably can't eat there (they all know my problem) and went and checked it out beforehand. The restaurant would have opened at 10.30 and i was already there at 10.20. It was still closed and there was no other customer there yet. One woman opened, when she saw me standing outside. I told her that we want to go to their restaurant next week with a group of approx. 8 people. And i also said, that i'm sick and i can't have wheat, rye, oat or barley, because of certain things in it and wanted to know, if they thicken their soups and sauces with one of these flours. She said, she can't tell me. I said, that if i don't know, and i will eat one of these things mentioned above, i will get very sick. Then she became very ignorant and said. Then don't eat anything, we don't want you to get sick. NICE!!! She also said a few seconds later, that i could bring my own food. Well, i don't travel an hour to Hanover, have 90 minutes of exhausting acrobatic, then DON'T eat anything and then drive one hour back home. Some people are really ignorant.

How would you do that? My mother-in-law suggested to bring a little something and maybe next week there is something else there. So i repeat what i said to this woman and maybe talk to the manager. And if they don't want me to eat there i can ask, if i can eat my own food then and mention, that this other woman already said that i could do so. And if they're still that ignorant i should mention, that they will lose a lot of customers, since i will report it to our support group and all the gluten people that will avoid their restaurant then sure would have brought some friends also.

I don't know what to do, some suggestions would be nice. Or maybe there are also some people from the Hanover area here, that could help me with some other restaurants?

Thanks very much in advance for you answers. I will also let you guys know, what happened next wednesday.

Lots of hugs, Stef

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
