Is There A Gluten Free Yelp?

I thought I saw someone on this forum mention that they had posted a review about a restaurant where they got sick. If there is a site where celiacs can post whether or not they got sick from eating supposedly gluten-free food at a restaurant, that would be very helpful! And, of course, if people can post when they DON'T get sick, that's very helpful too. Does anyone know if there's a site like that somewhere?

It was me that posted!

 

I've used Yelp, but I am not aware of a dedicated Yelp site for gluten-free.  I've posted just one review about a local Chinese restaurant who goes out of their way to make gluten-free dishes for our family.  

 

I did use the "Find Me Gluten Free" website to post a review just this week concerning Red Robin.

 

I'm the person who did not have abdominal issues prior to my blood test.  Now, months later after being on a strict gluten-free diet, abdominal symptoms hit me hard (besides body aches, headaches, fatigue) after my recent restaurant glutening.  

 

When it's very nice restaurant and the chef and manager come out to talk to me, I feel pretty confident that my food will be gluten-free and chances for cross contamination will be low.  The same for burger joints (that sell only fries and burgers) where I can WATCH them change their gloves and make my burger!

I think Find Me Gluten Free is your best resource for dining out, rather than yelp,

I post regularly on FMGF as do many others.

Thanks for the responses! I'll go look at "find me gluten free" before we try eating out again. It helps to know when people have already tried a place and NOT gotten sick so you can be pretty confident it's safe!

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
