Looking for advice on restaurants here in St. John's that are familiar/helpful with meals for celiacs. I have Swiss Chalet's gluten-free menu & have heard that The Keg was a good choice. Also heard mention that Zapatta's, India Gate, Magnum & Steins, Bianca's & Cabot Club were possibilities but nothing definite. Any townies out there with experience here in St. John's? I had a positive blood test a few months ago & after a few days to a week gluten-free many symtoms I had lived with for years just vanished (very dry skin, cold feet at night, thick nasal phlegm-esp at night, stinky BM's, tiredness etc). I never really felt sick as such but I feel so much better now. The diet is more a nuisance than anything, especially with restaurants & travel. I HATE drawing attention to myself at restaurants by trying to explain my problem. But I do eat MUCH better now & feel healthier just because of that. As well, i have heard mention of a card that is avaiable somewhere than can be presented at restaurants explaining the disease & precautions that need to be taken by the cook. Where can I get those?
