well i FINALLY did it ... i went to pf changs. on a date with my husband none the less. all of the posts got to me and i felt i needed to check it out first hand. and it was a fantastic experience! the food was incredible. the staff made me feel confident they understood my gluten intolerance and their ability to prepare my food safely. if you haven't tried this restaurant yet i highly recommend it.

and i highly recommend the chicken lettuce wraps. :D i can't wait to go again! hee! :):)

Good for you. I am glad the experience was good. I always get the General Pso (sp?) chicken and the green beans with garlic. Yum. I wish they had one closer to me as it is a 45 minute drive but well worth it.

that is about the distance of ours. and you are right ... worth the drive! i will give that dish a try next time we go. its does sound good. i'd try take out but it probably wouldn't make it all the way home. hee! :)

I had a really good experience when i went to PF changs, too.

I was really antsy and nervous about eating out after 4 months of not eating out, but the staff made me feel more confident.

there was nothing on the gluten free menu that i could even eat as such, but they made me chicken with bok choy and spinich with no salt (have to avoid iodine because of my dermititas herpetiformis, i've found out)

It was actually really good, even though it sounds boring!?

it was nice knowing they were taking my request for no salt seriously!

Yum!!

We went to PF Changs post dxn and had a super yummy dinner, I got really sick the next day and I thought it was gluten but everyone said they are SUPER careful. Well a few months later found out I was allergic to soy, so I am sure that was what it was.

I am very very very sad I probably can't eat there anymore :(. I miss soy sauce and chinese type food.

there are others here allergic to soy and they said they can still eat there as long as you let them know gluten AND soy. :)

I know this thread is older, but I wanted to share my experience at PF Changs.

Overall it was a great experience---my first experience with a restaurant since having to go gluten free. The manager and waitress appeared knowledgeable and the protocol the manager described was very good.

When the meal was served (I was with people who didn't have to avoid gluten) was where a problem occurred, but it didn't register with me until after the food was served, and since I'm not super sensitive and I was starving after a day shopping, I didn't worry with it. You see, the waitress was not the one serving the food. It's all well and great to have special plates denoting gluten free, but when a server handles all the gluten regular plates when serving, before handling the gluten free plate, there is a chance of cross contamination that could pose a problem for someone who is super sensitive. Considering how full the tray was with platters, one would have to wonder about that as well.

I didn't feel so great later in the evening, but the D and fatigue could have been just from my day out. I keep meaning to speak with someone at that PF Changs, but life keeps getting in the way.

I'm glad that many have great success at their PF Changs and I think the restaurant does a pretty good job, but I did want to mention this so perhaps the restaurants can be educated on this. Next time I get up the nerve to eat out I think I'm going to ask that they make sure to serve my food first on a separate trip. (I do tip accordingly. :) )

I just did some research on the Hot Mustard Sauce at PF Changs and although the server may tell you the mustard sauce is ok, it is defintiely NOT Gluten free. The chef confirmed for me they use regular soy sauce in it when they make their batches and they don't make any special batches with the wheat free soy sauce. So be Careful!

    • I live in a house where some people eat bread.  I do not use the toaster that toasts regular bread. All sandwiches are made in a special area of the kitchen and I do not prepare any of our other food there. If you have touched bread, you have to wash your hands before you touch anything else in the kitchen.  After you eat bread, the dishes go directly (and only) into the sink.  I rinse any plates and forks extremely well that have had bread on them and then I put them in the dishwasher (they essentially get washed twice). Then I rinse out the sink.  I have a separate dish scrubber that I use when the plates have had anything with gluten on them.  We don't cook with flour or bake with real flour(except once a year when I let my kids make their birthday cakes). The flour goes everywhere and coats the surface of countertops.  Do you make all your soups from scratch? A lot of soups have flour as a thickener. Also Nuts are often times made in facilities that process wheat. Planters nuts seem to be pretty safe or shop at Nuts.com - they have quite a few options. Hope you feel better soon!
    • If you're like me, you've already tried all multiple options without very good answers, thus the reason you are on the boards...
    • Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls  ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened? 
    • thleensd, If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium. Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits. Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's. http://afibbers.org/resources/taurine.pdf I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.  B vitamins help us manage our stress. If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50  causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra. Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often. Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me. I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me. Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps. Frequency is more important than the amount. 2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day.  Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate  (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly. I hope this is helpful. ****this is not  medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself. I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . . 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • First were you diagnosed with celiac? Second what is you basic diet right now, there are some other common issues that go along with celiac food intolerance wise we might be able to narrow this down. Third did you read hte 101 and make 100% sure that nothing is contaminated? This sounds like you might have contaminated a common used prep surface, utensil, pot. Or have a contaminated spice, condiment, or something new in your house like a cleaner, hygiene product. etc that might be leading to more issues. I can only say if you can get your antibodies checked to see if still elevated to know if it is gluten or something else. Imodium will help with the D, Anise (the spice) and gas X can help with bloating, pepto bismal can help overall. These can help to make it more manageable. \ I might suggest trying to eliminate the chance of it being cookware by getting some cheap new microwave cook ware like a steam tray and omelette maker and just having steamed veggies, eggs, and perhaps a baked sweet potato. Avoid condiments and spices for a bit and see if you can clear it up taking it down to whole unprocessed foods. I find doing this and resetting helps after a issue (I got glutened this last weekend and did the egg and veggie diet with avocado and almonds). Bonus of cooking in the microwave is you get softer end product that is more moist, less burnt and oxidized making digestion easier in my opinion.
