I would love to hear about your experiences at restaurants good or bad. Any recommendations?

These are specific to Edmonton, so I'm not sure how helpful this will be.

OPM has a separate gluten-free menu. It is available on-line.

Sicilian Pasta Kitchen (southside location) has rice noodles as a substitute and their tomato sauces are safe. Their cream sauces are not gluten-free.

I was talking to someone yesterday who eats Wendy's baked potatoes, but I've never eaten there since being gluten-free.

I had a plain salad at Olive Garden once.

Culina has a gluten-free menu.

Swiss Chalet lists their gluten-free items on-line. I've eaten their a couple of times and didn't get sick even with the waitress looking at me like I had two heads when I said wheat allergy. Just ask for no bun.

Grandmother died of malnutrition b/c everything made her sick... sounds like celiac to me.

I have my doubts, but does anyone know if there's anywhere I can eat in Peace River? It has to be super safe because I'll be in the field every day for a week, i.e. no toilets just bush and male co-worker whom I've just met.

Oh no... I haven't been to Peace River myself so I'm not sure. I sure there are grocery stores you could pick things up at.

I live in Edmonton and I eat at Wendy's almost everyday for lunch since it's just down the street from where I work. I eat chili, fries, baked potatoes, and salads (sesame dressing has soy sauce therefore wheat so stay away). Supposedly the burgers (without bun) are ok too but I'm too shy to ask for it without the bun so haven't tried yet.

Outback Steakhouse is another place I've gone and they are really good there. They have a separate menu that tells what is gluten-free and what isn't.

Sorentino's is supposed to have a wide variety of gluten-free pasta's. I think the owner/manager has celiac or something. I've been meaning to check it out but so far I haven't.

If anyone else can let me know of restaurants in Edmonton with gluten-free options I would really like to know. As I said earlier I'm really shy and don't like to tell the servers about my special dietary needs, especially here because the service industry leaves much to be desired and they probably wouldn't do as I instructed anyway. But if I know the place has knowledge of celiac I would definitely ask.

Bacon is an independently owned restaurant that offers a lot of gluten free food.

Swiss Chalet is good. They have a pamphlet that outlines safe choices. Their roasted chicken and sauce is safe.

OPM has a gluten free menu and is very good. It's in South Edmonton Common.

You can also ask for gluten free choices at any Montana's.

The south side Sicilian Pasta Kitchen has gluten-free pasta for an additional price of course. Only their tomato sauces are gluten-free. Their white/cream sauces are not gluten-free. Many of their appetizers are also gluten-free. They also have very knowledgeable servers. I've talked to the manager and they have separate pans/pots/utensils for the gluten-free orders.
