The Hi Ball Restaurant in the Stadium shopping center will accomodate those with Celiac, only deep fried items can not be changed.

I am sorely disappointed in the Palliser Hotel in Calgary. I was there for a conference this weekend. They were notified months ago that there would be two Celiacs there and others. They did a great deal to accomodate the diabetics etc. But the other Celiac and I they did manage to bring us out a sandwich on rice bread but all the desserts and breakfast foods there was nothing for us. Their restaurant and lounge had an even sorrier display of food. The only thing we could eat on the menu's was the nachos. A sorry thing to be sure for a large expensive hotel like that. They also did not know how to turn the heat up as we all froze to death for two days.

I'm sorry that you had a bad experience :( I'll make a mental note not to go there if I'm in Calgary.

Really???? That is so cool! I really like Hi Ball, it is right across the street from where I work and not terribly far from where I live. Can you tell me what you had there??? I have typically brought in Chinese food for Chinese New Year (which is this weekend), something sort of fun I brought back with me from my years on the west coast. The kids enjoy it. We make our own sticky rice and get dishes from the restaraunt. I am sure missing it!! Thanks so much for the tip, and any more details you have will be appreciated.

Yes, please tell us what you had at the Hi Ball. We are hoping to go to Calgary sometime this year :rolleyes: That's if all stays well on the North Coast and we don't have to make another trip up there.

The Calgary Celiac Association newsletter (end of 2005) says that the Oriental Palace restaurant in Parkdale (pretty much down the hill from Foothills, I think) has a selection of recipes that can be converted to gluten-free.

The article says it's:

Oriental Palace Peking Cuisine, Fully Licensed

9 Parkdale Cres. N.W. *


*Parkdale Crescent is actually part of Memorial Drive NW and the restaurant is located in a small strip mall just below the Foothills Hospital.

I think if you're going there from 29th (is the the street Foothills is on?) when you get to the bottom of the hill, turn west (right) and head toward Shaganappi Trail. It's near a coffee shop called the Lazy Loaf or Lazy Kitchen or something like that. There's a big sign for the restaurant. I haven't eaten there, but stopped in to check out the menu one day.

I've never even heard of the Hi Ball. Is that near the Luciano's across from Foothills? Can kids eat there or is it a bar/lounge kind of place?

The first time I had vegetables no soy sauce and some curried rice noodles with shrimps it was excellent, with steamed rice.

This time I had something Schezwan noodles or something like

that, except instead of the thick noodles I had rice noodles no soy sauce, it had pork, chicken and shrimp it was good.

Gee Skoki you must live pretty close to me. I think next time I will talk to him about hot and sour soup. They told me anything I wanted that was not deep fried or the ginger chicken or beef, dumplings or the the wheat or egg noodles or anything that is premade. He will sub in the rice noodles if you want.

This is a family restaurant and is up by Lucianos and next door to the Cat House.
