Calgary Restaurant

Recommended Posts

My in laws have been wanthing to take our family out for dinner, so I convince the kids we could safely eat out......After calling ahead to the restaurant, letting them know we had 2 kids with celiac and then ordering - it seemed like we might be safe. They offered gluten-free pasta and plain roast potatoes and steamed veges. We could get chicken breast with no sauce. Then they arrive and plunk down a basket of bread in front of the kids - I grab it and move it. It was cold too - air conditioning going full blast. It was Modi's Restaurante and Cafe.

Obvious CC...dd has diarrhea and nausea that started 3 hours after the meal. Ds had nausea but feels fine this morning - he had gluten-free pasta with sliced chicken on top. (so both had the chicken). I am guessing they were grilled on a glutened grill. ........ sigh....... I wonder if people will ever get we avoid eating out because this is the aftermath - I am not antisocial or "catering to the children".

DD just headed to the bathroom clutching her tummy, :( gotta go...

That sucks.

Next time you should go to Splitt- the mostly gluten free restaurant. They have real bread and beer there, but everything else is gluten free. I went there for the first time last week and it was super good. Even my friends that eat normal food liked it.

Sorry your kids are sick. I don't think I have ever heard of Modi's, but will know to stay away!

Thanks for the replies, I will consider Splitt in the future - we live an hour south of calgary so was trying to find a resaturant in the south end. I heard Chianti's is good but its really not the place for a 12 and 13yr old... I just remember it as romantic getaway for adults.

dd is much better since late this afternoon, her smile is back and she felt good enough for gluten-free BD cake (dh BD today).

She said she likes eating at home cause the food tastes so good and she doesnt have to worry about getting sick :)

Are those your kids in the avatar? They're cute, they look just like you. :lol::P

Chianti is great! It's not a romantic getaway at all, it's very much a family restaurant. Not like the Denny's type or White Spot type family restaurant, but families go there a lot, and it's delicious. They use rice vermicelli for the noodles, but said they will cook a different kind (tinkyada, corn, whatever) if you bring it in. I believe most of their sauces use cornstarch, so double check with the manager/host/server about that. I can't remember if your family can have corn or not. We go to the Crowfoot Chianti every couple of months.

For us, Splitt is way too far south.

Also, if you go to the Calgary celiac website http://www.calgaryceliac.com/ and click on local restaurants, there's a list of restaurants that are familiar with celiac.

:lol::lol:

The bigger dog is our "rescue" - Katie -the little one is one of her pups that looked like a "minnie me" of her.

Katie was found dumped in a snowbank ..... whelping... with my work in clinics, I definitely wanted a dog I could make a difference with, her pups would easily find homes, but Katie had boobs down to her knees, was skinny, had warts on her face and no manners. She also "smiles" which is a trait I love but they are harder to adopt because many think it is aggression. So after obedience, love and understandng we got her through some "issues" of abandonment and now she heels, sits, stays, lays down, and fetches wth great joy. She is great with the kids and is sleeping beside me as I type. When I first saw her , I could see her soft brown eyes were just waiting for someone to spend time with her.. and I found a diamond in the rough. :)

The restaurant we went to was on the list from the Calgary association, I have to write in with my comments yet . We will try Chianti's next time - they have one in the south. It will be a while cause this was such a neg experience for dd.

Yikes! How upsetting to find a restaurant that is so-called celiac "friendly" or "aware" and have it end up making your daughter sick. I'd say it was either the grill or the chicken wasn't cooked properly. Were they the only two from your group having chicken? Did you call the manager (after) and ask about the cooking procedure for their chicken?

I agree! I take my 8 and 6 year olds there all the time.

oK, now I have to back peddle - there may NOT have been cc!

It seems my dd may be have lactose intolerance and the big glass of milk she had with dinner could be the culprit. She continued with GI symptoms off and on since that day, and eliminating dairy solved it.

I have recently eaten at Splitt again and I enjoyed a spring salad with french dressing and salt and pepper chicken wings. That was enough to fill me up and I was ok! I notice that they now have a sign in their front window that says gluten-free.

Do you have an address?

Another place you may want to try for Chinese food is Hi Ball restaurant in the Stadium shopping centre across from the Foothills Hospital. They are great and i have never been glutened there. My mother and I go and she eats normal and they know the way mine have to be prepared. Tonight I had steamed rice, Rice noodles with shrimp and curry and chicken with black bean sauce.
