A Taste Of Edmonton
0

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! :)
