Item One-Offs In Seattle

7 posts in this topic

So I've done a few emails because I'm trying to find out if some things I liked prior to going gluten-free are still edible for me. I'll list what I can here, please contribute. please note that I personally do not have a sensitivity to cross-contamination, so take that into account.

Dillettante Chocolate - this place sells pastries, they're the chocolate version of a Starbuck's. On the other hand, I was pleased to find out from their website that their delicious caramel sauce is gluten-free. So I can still have my caramel latte. No gluten-free pastries, though.

Taco del Mar - they have a HUGE and comprehensive "allergen chart" on their website. I'd say a good 85-90% of the menu is gluten-free, which is awesome. Baja fresh mexican food!

Specialty's - yes, it's a bakery, so I can't have any pastries/bread/etc. :( BUT an email to them confirmed that while the cross-contamination is a factor, there is no gluten actually IN their delightful mini-quiches. YUM.

Red Mango - Red Mango frozen yogurt is all-natural, nonfat or lowfat, kosher and certified gluten-free. please note that the additions you can get for the yogurt may not be, as I know they have waffle cones and graham cracker crust bites. But the fresh fruit is sooooo good.

Anyone else have any locations or singular items, especially in Downtown Seattle? (where I work)

Thanks,

Meg

PF Chang's in Westlake Mall has an extensive gluten free menu. I have celiac disease plus diagnosed reactions to dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. PFC is so allergy friendly. If you ask the waiter for gluten free menu and mention you have other allergies, the manager almost instantly appears at your table to talk to about which entrees will work for you. I also carry a laminated allergy awareness list of my allergens, which I send with my waiter to the chef preparing myfood. If gluten is your only concern PFC will be easy for you.

There are a whole bunch of places in Seattle. Off the top of my head:

Chaco Canyon Cafe (West Seattle and U District) have a lot of raw and gluten free items.

Flying Apron Cafe (Fremont and Redmond) have a lot of gluten free baked goods (they're entirely gluten free).

We went to Cactus this past weekend in Kirkland. It has a fantastic and extensive gluten free menu. And the food was delicious! I believe they are also located in Madison Park.

I've been meaning to also try Blue Moon Burgers.

There's a little place in Sumner called "The Buttered Buscuit" with a good gluten-free menu. Their gluten-free crepes are just to-die-for...

And there's a new yarn store in the north Kent / south Renton area that's putting in a gluten-free bakery.

I would also like to add a couple more to the list

 

Portage Bay Cafe -several locations in Seattle - I had the buckwheat pancakes - but they also make gluten-free french toast. All these come with their "fruit bar" ( fresh fruit toppings)They have a nice selection of gluten-free items for breakfast!

 

Wildfin - in Issaquah and Renton - has en extensive gluten-free menu. However there is a disclaimer that the food is not prepared separately - and when I asked, they do not have a designated fryer. But - with that said - I felt like there were plenty of safe options. I had clam chowder for the first time in seven months :D

    • Hi, you can try reporting your own post.  That should alert the site admin of your request.  I don't think they can delete your posts, but changing your user name may be possible.
    • Hi Pablito, Welcome to the forum! You are right, you should keep eating gluten  until the tests are all done.  The skin problems you describe ma be a condition only celiacs get.  The condition is called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH for short),  DH causes an itchy rash that is usually symetrical on the body.  You get the rash on both arms or legs etc.  It makes little blisters on the skin.  They are caused by IgA antibodies in the skin.  There i a test for DH where they take a small skin sample (biopsy) from the skin next to a blister and check it for IgA antibodies.   If they find DH, then you have celiac disease.  The 2 conditions are never separate.  there is a section of this forum dedicated to dermatitis herpetiformis with lots more information. The usual diagnostic process is to do a celiac antibodies blood test first, and then an endoscopy to test for damage to the gut lining.  But with DH, it is better to get the skin biopsy done instead of the endoscopy. Celiac disease is passed on in genes, so your children should be tested also if you are diagnosed.
    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.
