I want to travel in Thailand and Malaysia in about three weeks. Having been recently diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and now having to remain gluten-free, I am concerned with the availability of places to get a truly gluten-free meal in restaurants. Many Asians cook with fresh vegetables and spices as well as other fresh ingredients, but are they cooked in containers that will contaminate the food with gluten? Since I will be traveling by car and eating in many restaurants, are there any suggestions about staying gluten-free? I would appreciate any help and any advice that anyone cares to share with me. Thanks!

In Bangkok there is a lot of 'street food' that is cooked right in front of you, mostly of the 'satay' meat-on-a-stick variety, although they call it moo-yang or guy-yang. It's probably pretty safe. I ate it all the time before I was diagnosed w/ celiac disease. You can usually get plain rice with it. Also lots of fresh fruits. As for the restaurants themselves, I don't know. There are a lot of noodle dishes.

hi kelly,.............you will need to be alert and dilligent about eating there,as it looks to me that you'll be eating out a lot, which is always dangerous. one of the trickiest places to tell if gluten is a content is soy sauce............salt is a handy substiute in a pinch. ...............good traveling....zarf.......HI. ;)
