A Taste Of Edmonton

10 posts in this topic

If you are in Edmonton, the Taste of Edmonton festival has things labeled as celiac friendly or not. The festival runs through next weekend (July 28th - downtown), and there are 14 different gluten-free foods available. I've eaten twice with no problems. Very fun to be out and about and be able to order booth from a food festival like normal!

That is awesome! I was wondering how they would do that and did not know whether it would be safe for those of us with celiac or not. So glad it is. Darn it - we should have gone this weekend! Do they seem to be very aware?

Both booths I went to were, but they were both Indian food places & those tend to be easily Celiac friendly.

You can get a menu for all the booths when you buy tickets at the front, and it has "C" written next to anything we can eat. (I think there was one mislabel on it--Chef's Grill and Bar had a "C" next to their pie, but I think it was supposed to be next to their stuffed mushrooms.)

All the booths also have signs in front of them with gluten free stuff labeled with the "C." And the food is cooked right in front of you.

That is amazing! They actually had a system in place? Wow. Edmonton certainly has great safe places for us to eat out. Our favourites are Red Ox Inn, Wildflower Grill, corso32, Madison's Grill and, of all things, a fish and chips place called Brit's Fish and Chips. Seriously - they have a dedicated fryer and the battered fish and chips are fried in their own special gluten-free breading. I'm not a fan of deep frying but just adore this place. One of the servers has celiac, too. Have you tried it?

I haven't...I've eaten at a bunch of places here, but none of those. I'm vegetarian too, so I don't think the fish and chips place would work (but I might be able to find something.)

I'll look into the rest of them, thanks for the suggestions!

Oh, sorry. And here I was suggesting all these non-veg places. But I would suspect that they would have at least some choice of things to eat. Usually better restaurants have one vegetarian option. I'm pretty sure that Madison's Grill does. All the places I listed have websites so you could give them a call. Do you have your own favourites in Edmonton? I am always up for trying something different, too! :)

I just moved here, so I'm still learning places to eat. We ate at Sofra once--it was very good. Also at Col Mustard's on 124th--that food was different from any thing I've had, but good. The Dish and the Runaway Spoon didn't have too much both veggie and gluten free, and what I got was too salty, but you might have luck with something else.

There are a lot of places I can eat here...but a lot are a little pricey for regularly eating at! We've eaten at an Indian place downtown several times, but I can't remember the name offhand.

I eat at Boston Pizza a lot. One of their salads made me sick once, but I've never had a problem with their pizzas. There was also a place at the City Centre that made me sick, but I don't remember the name.

I checked out the Duchess Bake Shop, but I wasn't convinced their stuff wasn't cross-contaminated, so I didn't try anything. I'm going to try MRKT downtown soon. They have daily gluten-free stuff.

Oh, and at Kinnickinnick's headquarters, of course! That's only a few blocks from where I live, so I've stopped in for fresh bagels, dinner rolls, and muffins. Plus they seem to have the cheapest gluten-free stuff in the city (their store carries stuff from other manufacturers too.)

I live in Edmonton. I don't eat out alot cuz I often have problems with cc but I've never had a problem with highlevel dinner. Favourite place in the city, has a celiac menu and a dedicated area of the kitchen (including fryer!) I've probably eaten there 30 times and never got sick. You can have the fries, but not their home made ketchup (they have regular ketchup if you ask). I would very highly recommend it. I am also a vegetarian so its great for that to.

This is great. Who does not crave good old diner food occasionally? I had heard about High Level Diner but have not yet been there. We will definitely be there on our next trip. Thanks lots! :)

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
