Restaurants In Maine

Recommended Posts

I live in Northern Maine (aka Aroostook County). I also visit the Bangor area alot. I have found that I can eat at Bonanza in Presque Isle, but I am skeptical elsewhere. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or knew of any items. The Bonanza grill is right behind the counter and I could see that they use tongs for the toast and such. I had the chicken monteray with no issue. It is rare to find something flavorful I can eat. I can also eat the pork ribs at Chopsticks in the Aroostook Center mall. Other than that, I tend to get sick. I would think I could eat at Governor's, but I have yet to try the theory.

Ok, so my question is does anyone know of restaurants in the area that either already have safe items or that are friendly about making special requests? I don't dare ask in Presque Isle, at least not at most places. I have found few employees who even remotely enjoy their jobs at restaurants and such a request seems to ruin their day.

Hi lizardorb,

I would suggest Cafe Nouveau in Bangor as a good stop for gluten-free dining if you're there at dinner. Lunch is not such a good call. Thistle's could also probable accomodate you; it's been a while since I was there and wasn't gluten-free at the time, but the food was fabulous. I'm guessing that Perri House could equally suffice. As Momma Goose suggested, Texas Roadhouse is another possibility and Ichiban for Japanese food, if you bring your own soy sauce, Thai Charda, Orchid or Siam and Bahaar Pakistani, Noodles & Co. I've also done fine at Bugaboo Creek. Basically what I've found is that the more expensive or ethnic restaurants will be more able to cater to your needs. The Last Unicorn in Waterville is excellent, too, if you make it down that way. I would stay away from Gov's and any of the usual clam shack kind of places.

Hope that helps,

Margaret

If you visit Bar Harbor. . .go to Eden Cafe and Havana. YUM!!! I think both are only open for dinner. They both change their menus often. I have gone to both places without calling first and both were VERY accommodating and delicious!

    Many thanks for all this, Sue, and please extend my thanks to your relatives. The thing is that I have already tried these supplements except sodium butyrate and reacted really badly. They were other brands, as I live in France. The Betaine...
    My daughter suffered with worsening lung functioning until she went gluten-free. Soooo much to tell, but will confirm that the lack of nutrients absorption +inflammation caused by Celiac gets worse.... Bronchitis, asthmatic pneumonia and repeat...
    YES! Currently dealing with it & gut agony. I get through the day with stick on heat wraps, CBD and dicyclomine. Also I drink hot stuff constantly. I use a Nerf football behind my back and at desk or in car & am attached to heat pad...
