Eating Fish Roe At Sushi Places....

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in trying a local sushi takeout place and the only problem I can see coming up is that they make an awful lot of rolls with fish roe -- I've already talked to the manager about cc issues, but I'm uncertain about the gluten-free status of fish roe. Does anyone know?

I tried doing a search, but "roe" seems to fall under the search engine's radar since it's only three letters.

What you are talking about is 'tobiko'. I heard that it may be sometimes processed with wheat starch so I avoid. Don't know for sure, though...

When I order a maki roll at a sushi place I always ask for no tobiko and no fake crab (also may be processed with wheat starch), just in case.

pamelaD is right, the roe is not necessarily in it's natural state, that is it is often processed. The Triumph dining cards for Japanese cuisine list it in the "please check" category.

Damn. Really? I hate this diet.

The obvious stuff is bummer, but it's this stuff that makes this diet super, super hard.

I need to order the triumph cards.

I agree Geoff. We've been researching it in two languages but it's a slow process for us. The Trimph international pack is helpful not only in restaurants but in planning and shopping and researching dishes that we want to try or bring back.
