Hiya

I wanted to relate some recent experiences...

Just went to Picazzo's in Sellwood for my birthday - to die for!!! Holy cow, have I missed pizza, with yummy melty cheeeeeeeese. My BF said he thought my gluten-free crust was better than his wheated one. Ha! I asked our waiter to marry me, and he said no. :( So for all you single gals out there, there's a single waiter who understands your gluten-free concerns, still available.

Also went to Lingonberries in Vancouver for the first time, and was pretty jazzed by all their gluten-free stuff. Please patronize them, they're a tiny store in an ugly strip mall, and could probably use your business. Lots of fun freezer things - cookies, and scones, and more.

Also, last month my BF and I went to Vindalho, an upscale Indian restaurant on SE Clinton and 21st. They do interesting things with lots of alternative flours, and assured us that many of the appetizers (including the onion rings) and the entrees were gluten-free. We'd just gotten back from central Wisconsin and were starved for a good meal - I was bummed out beyond belief to be really sick within about 30 minutes of eating those onion rings. I suspect that CC was to blame... I wrote a long email and never heard back from them, so they're off our list, and the recipients of some bad karma.

Enjoy!

Do they have gluten-free pizza with dairy free cheese too? They sound wonderful. Thanks for the info.

Have you found A Piece of Cake bakery on 17th, just south of Tacoma? They have gluten free stuff--expensive, but nice for an occasional treat if you are in the neighborhood. And the Corbett Fish House has gluten free food.

I agree. I love those places! Ever since we found LingonBerries I have never had to order anything online again. They have great products. Picazzo's is also great. We are regulars there and my son has never gotten sick. The staff is also very friendly.

Thanks, gluten-free Avenger! The pizza sounds wonderful - I'll have to go soon. I visited Lingonberries Market a couple of weeks ago. TONS of stuff. They seem to carry everything! It's about 30-40 minutes from my house, but worth the drive. I will be back.

They are heavy on the bean four though, if you don't mind the taste...I'm not a fan.

Tacoma is a street in/near Sellwood, OR (basically Portland)

Hello again!

Picazzo's had an extensive list of possible ingredients, if you wanted to build your own pizza. My BF is cow-dairy free, and had chevre on his pizza. Their full menu is available on their website...

I don't see any dairy-free cheese, sorry, Frec.

It's been quite a while, but the last time I was at Piece of Cake they were selling a spelt cake as wheat-free ARGH! Is that no longer the case?

We tried the piece of cake bakery and my son got sick (and he didn't eat much because he didn't really like it). They have ONE kitchen that they use to bake wheat and gluten free products. They only address cross contamination by using different colored bowls and different shaped baking pans. Needless to say we never went back!
