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 everyone, I've been reading this forum sporadically and have some questions of my own. I'm in my 40s and was diagnosed with celiac last December by biopsy and blood work after months of tests by my primary and then a gastro. My husband, around the same age as me, was dx'd with stage 4 cancer a month later, so admittedly it's took me longer than I'd have liked to learn about celiac. Now I feel pretty on top of my diet. I mostly make my own food - proteins and veggies, with some certified gluten-free snacks in the mix - and am pretty strict about what I will/won't eat at friend's houses or in restaurants (I prefer to go to dedicated gluten-free kitchens whenever possible). I'm doing okay on the diet, but still getting glutened every so often, usually when I let me guard down outside the home. I also periodically see my primary and a naturopath (who happens to have celiac!), but still, I have many questions if anyone would care to answer:

      -FATIGUE. I'm still so tired, fatigued so much of the time. My doctors blame this on the stress of my husband's diagnosis and my periodic trouble sleeping. But even during weeks where I'm sleeping enough (8-10 hrs a day), eating right, exercising as I can, trying to keep stress at bay, I'm still so bleeping tired. Maybe not when I wake up, but by late afternoon. Often my legs even feel weak/wooden. Has anyone else experienced greater fatigue early on after being diagnosed? This will pass, yes? I know I could cut out the sweets and that could help, but also, being a caregiver is hard and sometimes it's nice to eat your feelings between therapy sessions.  

      -SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY FATIGUE? Sometimes I'll have other "feels like I've been glutened" symptoms if I haven't gotten enough sleep, though I'm trying so hard to sleep at least 8 hours a night these days. Hasn't happened in a while thankfully, but there was a point this summer where my insomnia was bad and my arms were achy and I had some crazy flank/back pain I'd never experienced before. For weeks. Doctor ordered me to sleep sleep sleep, taking Benedryl if needed. I did, and the symptoms went away, but weird, yes? Has this happened to you? I ask because I want to make sure I'm getting all strange pains tested to the full extent if there's a chance it's something other than celiac. I do sometimes still feel that strange side stitch after a CC incident.

      -SKIN PROBLEMS. I have had a smidge of eczema since I was a teen and it - and the dermatitis herpetiformis I've acquired with my dx - are out of control right now. I recognize the connection with stress, but also, has anyone found any great natural remedies for DH to stop the itching? I've tried so many useless ointments and medicated creams, a number of them given to my by a dermo months ago. I see my naturopath this week, but thought I'd ask here too.

      -MOSTLY gluten-free KITCHEN GOOD ENOUGH? My husband is supportive of my diet and mostly eats gluten free meals with me, but we still keep a gluten-y toaster for him and the gluten-y dog food in a corner of the kitchen and he still makes the occasional meal with gluten for himself on his own cookware (ravioli, pizza, mac n cheese, etc). Or sometimes I make eggs/toast and the like for him when he's too sick to move. Otherwise, we're militant about how we cook, which cookware we use, etc. He even has a kitchen nook off our den where he makes sandwiches. But sometimes I wonder if having two separate sponges in our shared-ish main kitchen is enough and I should just banish all gluten whatsoever from the kitchen. I can't be the only one with a mixed kitchen, right? How do you do it if you have a mixed-eating family?

      Thank you so much!  
    • Hang in there!  Count your blessings.  Do something you like to do and relax. I know that is hard to do as a young mother (as I sit here in the kitchen sipping coffee quietly as my teenager is sleeping in after a late football game last night where she marched in 90 degree plus weather in full uniform).   But seriously, take a few minutes to relax!  
    • Meredith, this is very true. A colonoscopy is for diagnosis of the lower intestine, endoscopy for the upper intestine.  How did your doctor interpret the tests? I suggest you read the link Cycling Lady gave you because it contains a lot of good information. 
    • Sorry, but this product (supplement) is not even certified gluten free.   Seems odd that a product geared to Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance would not take the extra step of getting certified.   I guess I am a Nervous Nellie, especially after the reports that several probiotics were contaminated with gluten.   https://celiac.org/blog/2015/06/probiotics-your-friend-or-foe/
    • Thank you for posting that. I've had a lot of that bloodwork done and everything is normal. At the peak of this belly bug I had blood work done and my white count was fine. I think it's just my health anxiety scaring me into thinking this is something scarier (to me) than celiac. Maybe the anxiety will subside once I go gluten-free. The anxiety is brutal.
