I am sure you already know this but stay away from the imitation crab meat. It has wheat in it. Never have gone to sushi since dx but I know many on here do. Have a good night!

Don't know much about sushi, but I do know to stay away from immitation crabmeat. Good luck.

yah i dont care very much for the 'meat' stuff, i like more of the rice & veggie stuff, would i have to worry about stuff like the wrappers? and the seaweed salads?

I will reiterate the warning against imitation crab -- I don't know any sushi resturants near me that use real crab in the California rolls, so those are always off limits.

I would think that seaweed salad has soy sauce in it, but I don't know that for sure.

Some of the combination veggie rolls have soy sauce in them...I got glutened by one that had a pre-marinated mushroom in it.

Stay away from tempura -- alot of the fancier rolls have components that have been deep fried or are deep fried themselves.

Most of the time, the hot tea at sushi places has barley in it.

I'm not sure about cream cheese -- I don't like it in sushi, so I've never worried about it. I know Kraft is fine, since that's what I use at home, but maybe others will know if gluten is prevalent in some brands of cream cheese.

I think the wrappers are fine, but I would never say "always."

All that said, I love to go out for sushi. I carry my own wheat-free tamari and order cucumber maki, avocado maki, new york maki (cooked shrimp and avocado), and tuna maki (it's the one raw fish I like).

Enjoy and happy birthday!

Lots of rolls have something fried in them like tempura. I think panko bread crumbs are wheat. Spider rolls have deep-fried softshell crab. Unagi (eel) sauce is definitely soy sauce based. A lot of stuff is pickled (ginger, oshinko, etc.) but I don't know what kind of vinegar they use. Every restaurant has a different spicy tuna recipe, so I'd ask about that. You should be ok with most of sashimi. You are most likely to get mixed stuff in the rolls. Nigiri sushi (piece of fish over rice) is pretty obvious. They might hide wasabi under the fish, but you aren't likely to get any other surprises unless there is sauce. Oh, and be careful of the egg (tamago) I have NO idea what is in that besides egg, but there's something.
