I have been craving Chinese food and I really don't want to make it myself. Does anyone have any idea of what would be safe?
Thanks

Thanks
We don't have a resturant here with that name. Do you know if there are any specific foods that are ok?
Thanks

I always order steamed chicken with vegetables (and brown rice) and bring my own gluten-free soy sauce (or other sauce) for added flavor! I personally do not trust any other items on the menu!!

Usually "white sauce" dishes are safe, just make sure they use "corn starch" instead of flour as their thickening agent.

You could also get them to boil / steam the chicken and vegtables for you, thats what they do for me.

I hope you find something safe! I know what it's like to crave chinese food :D

I've had trouble with the steamed chicken (don't know if there was an additive, and the language barrier - I tried - was a bit of a problem), so I stick with steamed shrimp and veggies at the local place near me.

Anybody know what we might be able to eat at a Chinese restaurant that would also not contain soy?

I have had a lot of success with our local Chinese places. Before going gluten free I almost always ate lo mein, but I have found that I can order chicken or shrimp fried rice without soy sauce or chow mei fun (rice noodles) (shrimp or chicken) without soy sauce and add wheat free tamiri to it after I get it and it is wonderful!

Be warned, however, I tried this at a Chinese eatery this last weekend in South Orange, New Jersey and was not received well. The cook got really upset and told me he could not make either for me without sauce; it just couldn't be done. I cancelled my order and left.

Thai Kitchen has flavored rice noodle packets (kind of like Ramen noodles-only gluten free) that are very good. I bought some at the Whole Food Market for $.69 per packet. They can also be order online. :D
