Hi,

I am a celiac living in Boston at the moment. But my husband and I will be moving to Hong Kong in August this year. We were just there and I am really upset with the food in Hong Kong. I need to find places where I can get gluten-free stuff, including restaurants, in Hong Kong.

I will truely appreciate if someone can help me here. Or even if you can just let me know of any contact, I will really really appreciate it!

Thanks,

Shweta

Oh! I'm so sorry that there hasn't been more advice! I wish I could help you more too! I don't know how practical it is, but have you considered stocking up on products shipped from the states?

You said that you had already visited Hong Kong....Do they list the ingredients on products like they do in the U.S.? Surely, there are rice based products that you could eat. Maybe not glamourous but until you get more adapted to the culture at least you can eat. Good Luck! And congratulations on you upcoming move! How exotic!

I also suggest City Super supermarket. Their selection of gluten free foods is low, but I haven't really been able to find other places with much. They have gluten free muesli and a Australian stuff. I purchased. They also have gluten free cake mix I think. A few things, not much. Read the tags, they will say Gluten free if it is.

People in HK don't really understand the condition.... its kind of a pain.

Hope this helps.

I don't live in HK, but my sister does so I've spent a few weeks there. I loved the grocery store threesixty, I found lots of stuff I could eat. You must try their frozen yogurt! There is another ex-pat grocery store that sells gluten-free food, but I can't remember the name. It's in the IFC mall. Fruits and veggies are cheaper at the wet markets than at grocery stores like threesixty. I found that a lot of the time the waitstaff would say "ok" like they understood, but they didn't. At my last visit, I didn't know for sure that I had celiac, so I stupidly ate gluten nearly every day.

When my sister first moved to HK 3 years ago, we assumed she'd be eating chinese food all the time. The opposite is actually true. We are used to a westernized version of chinese food, and real chinese food is completly different. So, sorry I can't recommend any dim sum places etc other than one in Shenzhen. Sushi in HK isn't great, but it's safe! Vietnamese and Thai restaurants both offer rice noodles and rice salad rolls. I liked Sarhara, a moroccan restaurant in central (minus the couscous) -the owner is great.

edit- the grocery store at IFC is "city'super"

Hi

How are you getting on with the restaurants in HK? Can you give me any that have gluten-free on the menu? My parents are going there for a holiday in December. Cheers

I just checked this one out for interest sake (and for the next time I go back to HK) and it's not only stocked with gluten free stuff (brands we know like Pamelas and Kinickinick<sp?>) but it's just off the Causeway MTR station so easy access :)
