This coming weekend is my first time having to eat out - I live in Canberra and going to Sydney, staying in Newtown. My DH is so painful that I'd love to hear about any strict or totally gluten-free restaurants etc in the inner city.

This coming weekend is my first time having to eat out - I live in Canberra and going to Sydney, staying in Newtown. My DH is so painful that I'd love to hear about any strict or totally gluten-free restaurants etc in the inner city.

There are no totally gluten free places in Newtown but The organic pomegranate king st - they have a 10% discount for coeliac society members and are coeliac Society partners, Atomic Thai king st newtown have a separate gluten-free menu and Guzman Y gomez is a traditional mexican place on king st again that does gluten-free options. I haven't yet tried Pomegranate - though I really want too. And I have eat at the other two numerous times and have never been glutened at either.

The Healthy feast is a Totally gluten free bakery (they do cafe type stuff as well) 157 Norton Street Leichhardt, NSW, 2040

I also eat at Guzman and Gomez all the time (It'd have to be at least 100 times by now since I went gluten free) and I've never gotten sick.

A bit further afield - The Winery at Surry Hills were great.

Cafe 2042 - King st Newtown. I forgot about them - they do fab food and are all up on all kinds of allergies and intolerances. If they aren't sure of something they don't guess - they go and look etc!

Thank you all.

I am a bit itchy but not as bad as I use to get in the past.

Newtown is a great place for eating healthy - so many great people willing to help without 'inconvenience' tone and body language.

I had a great meal at the Carlisle Castle hotel - Salmon and veg and yummy!

The only problem was my sisters 40th birthday & I suspect the "cornflour" wasn't just cornflour.

Otherwise my first eating out / travel has been a fun and full one.

:)

Yeah - the carlisle is great - they fry their chips separate - gotta love that. I mean really - at the end of the day - now hard is it? Not very, its a shame more places don't just do it!!

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
