I don't know if you have one where you are, but PF Changs has a gluten-free menu. I was told that you can't get much as far as chinese food goes since they cook mostly everything with soy sauce. Hope this helps!

Some of the "white sauce" dishes are gluten-free (moo goo gai pan or shrimp with snow peas) you would need to call them and ask what they use as their "thickening agent" is it flour or corn starch??? :)

I actually get Chinese quite a bit.

I either order the dish without soysauce (so they make the sauce with everything but the soy sauce) (and I do tell them I have a food allergy and speak with someone in charge) or I bring in my own gluten-free soysauce and have them use that instead. It's worked fine for me. I think if you go to your "neighborhood" place enough, they'll accommodate.

Hi!

I usually stick to the white sauce dish, like Chicken and Broccoli. I always say no soy sauce or flour...just corn starch and I have never had a problem.

Good luck!

I get Egg Drop soup which is just a broth based soup with eggs and veggies and then I get chicken and mushrooms with white sauce. Simple, easy, and it tastes really good.

Another option is to order a Steamed meal (Chicken and Mixed Veggies, etc.) and bring your own sauce. I order the "Spa Meals" from Chin Chins. They are cooked and served in a bamboo container. I bring my own sauces - sweet N sour, bbq, or soy sauce. I get funny looks from other people, but the food tastes great and I get to be out with friends :)

I would agree with the person who mentioned steamed food. I avoided chinese restaurants but found that most chinese restaurants will be able to steam chicken with vegetables.

To this day I cannot eat chinese food. When I was sick the past 2 years and I didnt know about celiacs, chinese was the thing that made me the sickest!! I hardly ever threw up but my sweat and sour chicken, egg roll would do it everytime!

What about hot and sour soup? Also, there are soy sauces without gluten. Don't any Chinese restaurants use them? I love Chinese food and have been having Kung Pow Chicken and General Tso's without breading. When I asked the owner at one restaurant about if there was wheat he said he wasn't sure because the sauces are premixed. I'm puzzled. :(

Heather,

I'm the same way.. Chinese is hard on me too! I'm not gluten-free (yet) and I'm usually laying on my stomach in pain when I eat it. I wonder if it's the MSG.... "Glutimate"

I would think fried rice would be fine. I have a local place made chicken fried rice for me with no soy sauce.

ps watch out for oyster sauce. after eating at a place i trusted they slipped oyster sauce into the regualr dish I eat. Too late, I had already eaten it. I should have know though, it had color to it. most white dish should be fine if you ask about the thickner.
