Great gluten-free Dining In Anaheim!

1 post in this topic

We just got back from our vacation in Anaheim. We had excellent luck eating out and my daughter was 100% OK!!! So relieved!

We ate in Disneyland a few times, they have a great list of the gluten-free options throughout the park. (Go into City Hall and ask for the list upon your arrival.)

I called the Rainforest cafe in downtown disney before we arrived and they told me they could make my daughter a meal. Upon our arrival the kitchen manager came out and told me the options for her. SHe eneded up having rotisserie chicke, carrots and corn. the only problem here is that it is SUPER noisy and I felt it was hard to get our concerns across and know she fully understood. However the kids enjoyed it and there were no issues.

We also ate at the Outback Steakhouse about 3x. Their gluten-free menu is separate from the regular menu and very extensive! They have a gluten-free brownie/ice cream dessert that was wonderful!

We also ate at PF Changs. I can not tell you how good it was to eat chinese food again!! I just wish there was one of these restaurants in canada. We also found gluten-free pizza at California Pizza Kitchen. The pizza place and PF Changs are both located at the Garden Walk Anaheim. This is an outdoor mall about a block from Disney.

Our best find though was at a tiny Irish Pub in Costa Mesa/Newport called Skosh Monahans. Almost everything they serve is gluten-free. They have an aweseom gluten-free menu and a kids gluten-free menu!! We had gluten-free chicken strips, fries and donuts. After not eating nuggets/strips for 7 months these were so yummy!!!!

I just thought I would share my info. I had such success I know others can too! These places were all great!!

    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
    • He has a rash on his fingers from time to time. Angular Chetelis. Mouth sores. So skinny. Anxious. 
    • The blood test results are negative (and he had the complete panel).  No GI issues (per your posting).  What makes you suspect celiac disease?  
    • Hi WS, So sorry to hear your not feeling quite right just yet. I can relate! I believe in doing whatever is needed for you to be able to come to terms with the diagnosis, which it sounds like was given to you already but if you still need further evidence then do whatever is needed!  In regards to food, I am a pescatarian so I also don't eat meat but I get my protein from some seafood, eggs, beans, natural protein replacements, exct...I was vegetarian and found it extremely difficult on the gluten-free diet for my lifestyle. I found probiotics have really helped me but even now I still feel off days with my digestion and I think that just comes with having a digestive disease. I know what foods trigger it (Yes gluten-free foods!) and try to stay away. I remember the first month or so I was very sick from removing gluten, almost like withdrawal symptoms. Probably because I ate a lot of it prior so it was a shock. 3 1/2 years later, I still feel weak and light headed if I don't eat enough carbs/protein. Celiacs are known to have deficiencies already so your nutrition intake/supplements are super important! I hope your able to find peace with your health and get the answers your looking for!
