I Got To Eat Chinese Food!

Recommended Posts

God bless the local Chinese restaurant owner. I came in just before the dinner rush, gave him a crash course in celiac, and he was sooooooo helpful. Not only was he pleasant and very understanding about the severity of the disease and the need for CC precautions, he even offered to make special food for me! He made me fried rice in a clean wok w/o gluteny soy sauce or seasonings :D and I had shrimp with lobster sauce, which is a white sauce thickened with corn starch. needless to say, I was a VERY happy girl. I could tell he got it when he put my food in a separate bag "just to be extra careful" and made sure they didn't even put fortune cookies or those crispy wonton things in with it...now that's careful! His English was excellent, and he was so nice about the whole thing. I was absolutely thrilled to be able to get takeout!

Just wanted to share my experiences!

Very good news!!!!! Sounds like a keeper. ;) If you take your own gluten-free soy sauce, I bet he can prepare almost anything for you.

I am jealous! That is one thing that I miss the most and can't seem to replicate at home.

Congrats!! Where in CT are you? There are 2 Chinese restaurants in Westchester (NY) that have very extensive gluten-free menus. One of them is in Rye, so depending where in CT you are, you may be close that one.

Yeah Avon is definately not near Westchester (although a really lovely town). Fortunately both of these restaurants are near Scarsdale. The closer one to Scarsdale is in Ardsley. It's called Golden Wok. I actually just came home a little while ago from getting take out from there.

The other one, which is only about 15 minutes (at most) from Scarsdale, is Ray's Cafe in Rye Brook.

Both are incredible. Hope you get to try them next time you are in the area.

    I recently started a medication that's known to cause hypothyroidism, and in me, it has. As I increased the dose, my TSH went higher, in an almost lockstep fashion. On the most recent set of blood tests, after my TSH had gone over the threshold, my GP decided to chuck a coeliac test in there since hypothyroidism can be linked to coeliac disease, even though it seems pretty much certain the hypothyroidism is caused by the medication. So essentially this test result was something neither he n
    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste
Not a clue, other than normal eating. He ate a fair amount of bread, and pasta and pizza and such. Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
