It's All Greek To Me....

Recommended Posts

Hey all... :)

I've just been informed by my boss that we will be eating out at a Greek restaurant later this week for lunch. Are there safe foods? Granted I know that I will have to confirm with the resturant staff about each dish... but are there some dishes that any of you have had in the past that could get me started in the right direction.... :P

Thanks!!!

The Greek restaurant we go to has a delicious chicken souvlaki salad. They marinate the chicken in olive oil, lemon juice and garlic and don't put wheat in anything. Of course, you'd have to ask at the restaurant you're going to, but it's a good place to start. Make sure they don't put the pita bread on your salad when they serve it.

I've always wondered about Gyros. I know I can't have the pita, but does anyone know if the meat is safe? It is so hard to try to communicate with those that don't speak English well. ;)

I've had pretty good luck with Dolmas (stuffed grape leaves) usually stuffed with herbed rice and olive oil... but check with the restaurant as to what they use...

Before I was diagnosised I would eat Greek food without thinking, now that is all changed. But I will check on the chicken souvlaki and/or chicken souvlaki salad at this restaurant. As i enjoyed souvlaki in the past... hopefully, at this restaurant, in the future!!! :) Thanks for the suggestion!

I faxed them a letter concerning my needs, so we will see if they respond!! If not, I'll say my regular speel. I've even printed off some Greek Gluten Free Restaurant Cards... just in case!

What are Gyros?

This may help.... I found some celiac restaurant cards on the internet. Here is the site (it may not work as a link, but here is the address!!): http://www.celiactravel.com/gluten-free-cards/16-greek.html The lettering is abit blurry when I printed it out, but I think it will work for those that understand the Greek alphabet!!! :lol:

Ah yes, I forgot.... I have eaten some Dolmas with tsatziki lately. :rolleyes: But this was from a Deli that specializes in gluten free and no perservatives. I will check to see if this restaurant has gluten free Dolmas and Tsatziki. Thanks!

I was also thinking of bringing my own rice crakers/chips if the Tsatziki and Hommus is gluten-free....

Gyros should be ok if they don't do anything funky to it. It should just be lamb, onion, majoram, rosemary and garlic.

You made my day!! I am from Wisconsin where we are the home of Summerfest!! Gyros are one of the best things to eat there!! I can't drink beer or wine coolers there anymore. They did just start with the martini bar though! I am SOOOOO excited that Gyros SHOULD be okay though!! Thank you!!
