well i FINALLY did it ... i went to pf changs. on a date with my husband none the less. all of the posts got to me and i felt i needed to check it out first hand. and it was a fantastic experience! the food was incredible. the staff made me feel confident they understood my gluten intolerance and their ability to prepare my food safely. if you haven't tried this restaurant yet i highly recommend it.

and i highly recommend the chicken lettuce wraps. :D i can't wait to go again! hee! :):)

Good for you. I am glad the experience was good. I always get the General Pso (sp?) chicken and the green beans with garlic. Yum. I wish they had one closer to me as it is a 45 minute drive but well worth it.

that is about the distance of ours. and you are right ... worth the drive! i will give that dish a try next time we go. its does sound good. i'd try take out but it probably wouldn't make it all the way home. hee! :)

I had a really good experience when i went to PF changs, too.

I was really antsy and nervous about eating out after 4 months of not eating out, but the staff made me feel more confident.

there was nothing on the gluten free menu that i could even eat as such, but they made me chicken with bok choy and spinich with no salt (have to avoid iodine because of my dermititas herpetiformis, i've found out)

It was actually really good, even though it sounds boring!?

it was nice knowing they were taking my request for no salt seriously!

Yum!!

We went to PF Changs post dxn and had a super yummy dinner, I got really sick the next day and I thought it was gluten but everyone said they are SUPER careful. Well a few months later found out I was allergic to soy, so I am sure that was what it was.

I am very very very sad I probably can't eat there anymore :(. I miss soy sauce and chinese type food.

there are others here allergic to soy and they said they can still eat there as long as you let them know gluten AND soy. :)

I know this thread is older, but I wanted to share my experience at PF Changs.

Overall it was a great experience---my first experience with a restaurant since having to go gluten free. The manager and waitress appeared knowledgeable and the protocol the manager described was very good.

When the meal was served (I was with people who didn't have to avoid gluten) was where a problem occurred, but it didn't register with me until after the food was served, and since I'm not super sensitive and I was starving after a day shopping, I didn't worry with it. You see, the waitress was not the one serving the food. It's all well and great to have special plates denoting gluten free, but when a server handles all the gluten regular plates when serving, before handling the gluten free plate, there is a chance of cross contamination that could pose a problem for someone who is super sensitive. Considering how full the tray was with platters, one would have to wonder about that as well.

I didn't feel so great later in the evening, but the D and fatigue could have been just from my day out. I keep meaning to speak with someone at that PF Changs, but life keeps getting in the way.

I'm glad that many have great success at their PF Changs and I think the restaurant does a pretty good job, but I did want to mention this so perhaps the restaurants can be educated on this. Next time I get up the nerve to eat out I think I'm going to ask that they make sure to serve my food first on a separate trip. (I do tip accordingly. :) )

I just did some research on the Hot Mustard Sauce at PF Changs and although the server may tell you the mustard sauce is ok, it is defintiely NOT Gluten free. The chef confirmed for me they use regular soy sauce in it when they make their batches and they don't make any special batches with the wheat free soy sauce. So be Careful!

    • 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!
