Never heard of it. We had a Celiac Kids picnic last weekend and the lady from the association didn't mention it. There had been a restaurant in SW Calgary that was mostly if not all gluten free, but it shut down after about 6 months.

I love A Tasty Menu! I am a single mother of three and yes we all have Celiac Disease, I eat here 2-3 times a week and find that the food and price draw me back time after time. I can ether go to the mall and have a xl combo at newyork fries or I can go to A Tasty Menu and get a wonderful soup and sandwich.

Some of our favs are Yam fries, soup, curry, pizza and cake. I didn't know how I was going to servive with three kids and no take out pizza and this solves that problem. I call them up, pick up and there is no worries about CC at all.

I will say the area is not the best and the decor is not that great but the food and the people are, and you can't beat having a meal that you don't have to worry about.

Go try you will love it.

Yes, I have actually I was there twice in two days. Their food is all made from scratch and they serve pizza and delicious chocolate cake. They have a children's menu also. Even though they are far away from me, it is worth it to drive there. There is absolutely no gluten in that restaurant. Go and enjoy it.

"A Tasty Menu" is a wonderful restaurant! They have a very vegan friendly menu as well as their gluten free fare.

Their Hours are:

Wed-Sat 11 to 8

Sunday 11 to 7

Closed Monday & Tuesday

And they are in a kinda funny location, but great if you want to shop at Shun Fat grocery store on the way there or back! (I find that I have to eat more asian foods to help cut out gluten)

Tasty Menu address is:

105-4202 17 Avenue SE

Calgary, AB, Canada

(403) 235-0031

No it won't, Lisa. I think I alone am paying their bills. I have taken four people there who have been bringing their friends and family and I have been there three times this week.

Talk about an addict.

I'm taking friends there tonight, can't wait to try it out. I saw their write up in rising women magazine.

In addition to the celiac I can't eat corn, potatoes, coconut and a whole bunch of other things which make most "gluten free" foods totally out for me. But when I called to make the reservation it sounds like I'll have no trouble eating there!!!!!!!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm pizza I miss pizza

Don't let the exterior fool you! My boy's loved it! " This is better than McDonalds" says my 11 year old!

Sweet potatoe fries! Cheese bun hamburgers! Pepperoni Pizza for my 6 year old... and the chocolate cake sitting on the counter looks like a " repeat visit" waiting to happen!

Prices were awesome!

happy happy!

My husband and I ate there yesterday. It was great. It is a seedy area of the city, but I don't care. It was the first time I didn't have to study a menu for 30 minutes trying to figure out which item would harm me the least.

I was so excited I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! I didn't know what to order--I wanted to try everything.

For the past 2 years, I have watched my husband eat grilled chicken sandwiches and fries in just about every restaurant in this city. Now, finally, I could have that. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with yam fries, and he had the burger and fries. (I ate some of his fries, too) The food was excellent, the prices are very low.

A wonderful experience. We are going back today!

Support this restaurant!!

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
