I don't know if any of you have a Texas de Brazil near you. It's a Brazilian steakhouse that opened recently near me. I called them to find out if I could safely eat there. The girl on the phone didn't bat an eye and said, yes, I'll put a note on your reservation that says Celiac, and the chef will come out and explain everything to you and tell you what you can and can't have. I almost fell on the floor LOL. I am going Saturday so I will let you know how it was.

I read some reviews on UrbanSpoon.com about them that said they are great. So, fingers crossed...

The Brazilian Steakhouse concept seems to be a mostly gluten-free one. So people who don't have that one in their town, might find that a different company will work well, too.

Good point! I'm just looking forward to this conversation with the chef :D

I looked this Texas de brazil up. They are in a lot of places. Some of these grills don't have any gluten bread - just the traditional cheese bread made with tapioca flour.

Report back on here after you eat there, please. Edited: Duh! You said you would! :)

We have two Brazilian steakhouses here near me in Utah. Both are awesome. Both also have the Brazilian cheesebread which is to die for and naturally gluten free! I am so thrilled to have a place to go that is almost entirely gluten free and served bread that I can eat. I'm guessing that most people don't even know it's gluten free.

I think they have one of these Texas ones in SLC.

I checked it out and they do! So that makes three around here, sort of. The other two both have locations in SLC but also have locations way closer to me also. I love spending an occasional day up in the city but have no desire to drive up there just for dinner. 

 

And when you decide you are in love with Brazilian cheesebread let us know. I'll share a recipe so you can have it at home. You need a mini-muffin pan for it though.

Hello All,

 

As promised here's my review of Texas de Brazil. HOLY CRAP IT WAS AMAZING! :P

 

The chef came out and walked me through the tremendous salad bar. There were only four things at the salad bar that I could not eat! The salads were all without croutons, they had the croutons in a separate bowl. There was shrimp, salmon, soups, all different salads and cheeses. And at this particular location (in Yonkers, NY) ALL of the meats were gluten free. The chef did tell me that at some locations the sausage is the only meat we can't have.

 

The cuts of meat were delicious, and the cheese bread - oh don't get me started on the cheese bread - it was delicious! Adelaide, please please share your cheese bread recipe!!

 

It was pricey - not someplace you can eat every week - but WELL worth the money. The service was great, and the chef came out to check on me twice. I ate there Saturday night and have had no stomach issues at all. I highly recommend!

 

So there's my five star review. I hope you're all having a good day today!

This is the recipe I use and it has never failed me. I use half cheddar and half parm. I like to add a load of garlic and some basil to it to go with pasta as a sub for garlic bread. I've also been known to mince apples and use those in place of half of the cheese and add sage to go with pork. Tried a few times replacing some or all of the oil with butter, that is a no go. They're just so fun and so relatively cheap to play with. I've considered trying a breakfast one with crumbled bacon or sausage in it. But that whole "not supposed to eat sausage or bacon" thing is getting in the way. :lol: (Of course I'm not supposed to be near the cheese either so I indulge in these less frequently these days.)

 

Sorry about being slow. I'm a little touched in the head these days on remembering what I was doing. A swift kick in the pants or a message will generally get me back in line. :P

    He's still going to have to eat gluten even for an endoscopic biopsy. 2 weeks minimum. Plus guidelines say no dx on an endoscopic biopsy alone - you have to have the positive blood to go with it. Even that 2 weeks will deposit more antibodies under his skin if he's got dh.  Let me put it this way. The gut damage is the gut damage & if he's celiac & it sounds like he is but we don't have labs to prove it, then there is a treatment for it. Only 1 treatment for it. A very strict gluten
    Knitty Kitty, Here is the link to the Old research. I think you will find it interesting. ..I know you used Niacin to treat your itching with your DH. https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/82674034.pdf see Case IV but read them all when you get the chance. they review 12 case studies. I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advise. Posterboy,
Alaskaguy, Like Knitty Kitty I am one of the researchers on this forum.  she has provide you good links. So I wanted to chime in and share some research I found recently that might help you....entitled "Two Cases of Dermatitis Herpetiformis Successfully Treated with Tetracycline and Niacinamide." This is recent research too which can be hard to come by to find something directly that might help you. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30390734 Also see this thread about
