In Topic: Mexican?

03 April 2015 - 08:41 AM

Good point.  I've found a few places that add Soy Sauce to their beef marinade.  Same with adding flour to their corn masa.  The more Americanized the Mexican restaurant, the worse off you probably will be.   Conversely, the more traditional, the better off you'll be (wouldn't be caught dead putting flour tortilla in a taco, or using cheese in a taco, either).  That being said, the language barrier.  


Best options if you aren't in a major market is probably going to be Chipotle or making it yourself at home.  There's plenty of major brands that have corn tortillas.  Even gluten-free enchillada sauce.  You could always substitute Vegan cheese, its not terrible if melted.  


Curious - does your son have allergies to Goat cheese?

Resident Tex-mexican here!  Depending on the severity of his allergy, if cross contamination is an issue, you are going to have to find a Mexican restaurant that actually has a gluten free menu.  Depending on your location, that may be near impossible or very easy to do.  That being said, if cross contamination is not an issue, most real Mexican food is corn based so you should be okay.  The more traditional, the better.  Stay away from flour tortillas (you would never find a real Mexican taco in a flour tortilla anyway).  But yes, you have to be careful with bigger chains because they tend to add flour to make large "corn" tortillas for burritos and other products.  

In Topic: What's Your Favorite Gluten Free Restaurant?

Mine would be Saltgrass Steakhouse.   They even have gluten-free bread for free before your meal comes out. 


Second choice would be Johnny Carino's - There menu is huge.  Much better variety than Carrabas and they have really good gluten-free pasta.

Still no gluten free pasta.  I don't understand the concept of Italian food restaurants with a gluten free menu that don't offer gluten-free pasta.  Its insane.  I like their Chicken Bryan entree, but with so many other gluten-free Italian options out there, I rarely frequent Carrabbas anymore.

Gluten free pizza is coming to the US from Pizza Hut but I still do not believe it is 100% for Celiac sufferers, although it is supposed to be a better grade than Dominos (bread is made by Udi's and the ingredients are kept separate from their main stock).  


I don't know why any Celiac sufferer would even be surprised they ended up sick off a Dominos pizza.  They have more warnings and disclosures than a crate full of nuclear waste.
