    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

We recently had a pleasant gluten-free restaurant experience I

wanted to share with the list.

Mandarin Gourmet (5560 Santa Teresa Blvd San Jose, CA 95123, near

the intersection of Highways 85 & 87, phone 408-281-8898) has now

served us gluten-free meals on three occasions. We walked in with

the Chinese language Gluten Intolerance card printed in the back of

the great book, "Against the Grain". The manager, Scott Lin, read

the card carefully, asked us a couple of questions, then suggested

some menu items. So far we've enjoyed:

Fried rice (prepared without soy sauce)

Curry Chicken

Moo Goo Gai Pan

Stir Fried Vegetables

Singapore noodles (thin rice noodles with chicken, shrimp & curry

sauce)

and, of course, steamed rice.

We were quite pleased when, on our third visit, one of the staff at

the front desk pulled the Gluten Intolerance card out of a drawer.

I recommend that you speak with Scott Lin, the manager, when you go.

He seems very willing to help.

I've been leaving big tips (25% or more). It pays to leave as

pleasant a taste in their mouths as they left in ours. :rolleyes:

WARNING: THEY SERVED US GLUTEN.

Unfortunately, the last time we went, we were served wheat despite a clear understanding about our special requirements. Somebody dropped the ball in the kitchen, either through contamination or actual wheat ingredients. The result was unfortunate.

We do not forgive mistakes, as they are most likely occur where they have already occurred, so we don't ask for gluten-free there anymore.
