Topics I've Started

Maisano's Italian In Novi, Michigan

01 October 2012 - 07:20 AM

Before having to go gluten-free this was our favorite restaurant.

Fantastic home made food that has never disappointed.

I literally called them every 4-5 months for 7 years asking if they had gluten-free pasta yet. Finally a month ago they did.

Not only do they have a gluten-free pasta, spaghetti and penne as of last night but they can make most of their dishes gluten-free. Their pasta is fantastic, best I've had.

I order the Veal Marsala and they make it with corn starch instead of flour and its excellent. They made me shrimp and scallops tossed in olive oil, black olives, mushrooms, onions, and a few other things over the penne which they chopped lightly after cooking that is just as I remember it when I had it with regular wheat pasta.

If your looking for a place that makes food versus preparing it I'd highly recommend them. Dinner for 2 without alcohol is usually around $40-$50 and their Tuscan Onion without the croutons if gluten-free, but is an up charge.

Unethical Practice? Gluten Free Palace

01 October 2012 - 07:12 AM

My wife went online and ordered about $200 worth of BiAglut pasta from Gluten Free Palace last night.

They held the money on the card and then sends her an email stating that they are closed until October 10th in observance of holiday.

No where on their website does it state they are closed, and no mention of it until after the order was placed via email.

We could not even cancel the order stating it was already being processed. Tried calling them and get the answering machine they are closed until October 10th.

Called the CC company to get the charges removed but if they are going to be closed and not processing orders for 11 days they should have a notification on their website before having people place orders, especially for food stuffs which are time sensitive and then telling you after the fact they are not open.

Had Flour By Mistake, No Reaction

11 April 2012 - 04:56 AM

With spring coming up and us traveling to Mexico and Central America last week I started to take Zyrtec for mild allergies.

I always take it when we travel because leaving Michigan usually messes with my sinuses. The past 3 times we've been on vacation in the past year I have never had a single gluten incident. I find that odd since we must have eaten at 20 different random restaurants, normally Mexican since it seems safest, across the US with no reaction at all.

If it be Celiac's or an allergy my reactions are severe, nearly instantaneous, and had long term health effects for me like nervous system problems, and everything else most go through from long term exposure. I've taken a single bit of food and within 30 seconds know something is wrong with it.

Yesterday we went to a local Mexican place we had been to before and I ordered Enchilada's Verde. I got about 1/2 way through my meal and from the first bite noticed something wasn't right with the tortilla's but one of the reasons we go there is they have excellent corn tortilla's, just figured I had missed them.

I realized they were flour tortilla's. This is the first flour I had in 7 years beyond CC. Apparently they make this one dish with flour tortilla's but in the past the waitress knew we were gluten-free and ordered them the right way. Never seen a place that makes flour based enchilada's, they are called burrito's.

Zero reaction. That's enough gluten to put me in the hospital. When I first had a gluten problem it would effect me late at night or at the next meal but slept through the night no problems, just had breakfast an hour ago and nothing.

I've had CC not more than 3 weeks ago with a severe reaction, the only difference is taking the Zyrtec.
