Rodizio

6 posts in this topic

If anyone is a carnivore and lives near a Rodizio Grill I highly recommend it for your next trip out to eat. We don't go out to eat often, partly because it is expensive and partly because I'm paranoid. Theoretically Rodizio should be my worst nightmare in terms of CC, a parade of men bring skewers of meat directly to your table and carve it right there for you. You simply use your little tongs you were given to grab it. Every diner, every table, reaching for the meat with little tongs. Only, the only two meats that contain gluten don't get carved. They're chicken and they can be simply pushed right off the end.

When you are seated, if you mention right away a "gluten thing" you will get a paper listing what NOT to eat. This is the first thing that astounded me the first time. This isn't some list of the three things you're allowed to eat somewhere. This is, on the most recent visit, a list of a total of 14 things that contain gluten, 5 of them being dessert items, 2 pasta, 1 a salad dressing. Only the remainder could possibly be annoying.

Then they'll come out to your table and bring either cheese bread, hot deep fried polenta, or both. Both are gluten free. Both are melt in your mouth amazing. Where else can we really go and have someone bring us hot bread (and keep bringing us hot bread) that we can eat? Not dry, crusty, gluten-free bread that tries to be bread... Brazilian "bread" that is no such thing at all really but little rolls that you'll quickly come home and start googling a recipe for.

In the few times I have been there I have never gotten gluten sick. I have gotten "dear God I need to learn how to know when to stop eating" sick. I usually pile a creme brulee on top of that for good measure. They're pricey. I always get a limeade, my husband usually gets a soda and I never leave without dessert. Once we include a tip we're over the $70 mark. They are also definitely worth it. I would rather eat out rarely and pay a lot for it than eat out a little more frequently, have crappy options (like 2 salads and boiled chicken, I swear that is what I see sometimes) and crappy waitstaff and get myself glutened by some moron who thought it was okay to just take the croutons off a salad.

Thanks for posting this I saw your pictures the other day. They have one of these in Ft Collins, Co where my son goes to school. We thought about going. It is very pricey and we were taking the 4 of us and a couple of other boys. I hope they move east a bit and put one in KC. It would be a great place for my hub & I to go.

Let me add the link. http://www.rodiziogr...m/all-locations

Did you go to the Trolley Square location?

This place sounds like heaven and well worth the splurge!

Wish we had one here.

We went to the Utah Valley one. We were all the way up in the city in the morning and I expected to be up there all day and eat at the Trolley Square one. Poor hubs thought he was going to freeze to death in the 15-20 degree weather at the zoo and we headed back home to warm up and nap before dinner. The Utah Valley one is pretty close to home, in American Fork.

There is technically another Brazilian grill place called Tucano's that is way closer, but they don't advertise as being so very gluten free friendly and don't make their website (or didn't last I checked) point any of this out either. It is also right next to a University and is staffed mostly by college students. Nothing against kids... but I don't trust a bunch of college age kids to keep me safe. Tucano's also has a much more PARTY!!!! atmosphere, Rodizio is more grown up. I'm not saying Tucano's wouldn't be perfectly safe, and I've been there lots of times pre-celiac. I just am too scared to risk my health to a bunch of college yuppies.

Also, Rodizio has a far higher proportion of ethnic cabana boys meat servers in my experience. Just sayin'. :D You know... if you're into that sort of thing.

Just another tip...if price is an issue, try them for lunch. They have a couple less meats, but the price is substantially lower. In Salt Lake, ask for the gluten-free lime pie...to die for.

It is substantially cheaper at lunch. Unfortunately my husband's (and my) favorites are only served in the evenings. For us it is worth it to go less often and go in the evenings. For people going for the first time to try it, I do highly recommend lunch. It isn't always as busy, and you can decide if it is your sort of thing on a budget instead of spending a small fortune.

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
