I've never eaten PF Changs but have read here how it's great for gluten free. When my family wants Chinese we've just been ordering from our regular place and I just eat something else, since our regular place delivers and PF Changs doesn't. But, lately I've been craving fried rice, so we ordered from PF Changs and ds drove over to get it. (we learned they have curbside pickup which makes the no-delivery thing better, lol).

Anyway, I ate it two nights ago, woke up feeling okay, but by mid-morning I had that gluten headache and a few tmi intestinal issues. All I'd had for breakfast was my normal coffee and Udi's toast (from a loaf that I'd already been eating from with no problems.)

I had noticed on the chicken in my fried rice that there was a coating and I wondered if they'd gotten mixed up. So I called and talked to the manager. She went to talk to the chef, and came back with a complete list of every ingredient in the dish. The coating was egg and corn starch. She explained how the gluten-free area of the kitchen is entirely separate, how they use dedicated utensils, cutting boards, woks, etc.

So I said well maybe I got some crumbs from my toaster or something (it's a toaster oven and I never have problems, but you never know...). She said "well, I'm 99.9% sure that your problems weren't from our food. But, would you mind if we sent you a $25.00 gift card? I'd hate for you to come away with a bad memory of your first time eating our food."

Would I mind? :lol: :lol: :lol:

She also suggested a few things to order next time that are highly recommended by other gluten-free customers -- lettuce wraps and mongolian beef, specifically.

Would I mind a gift card? hahahahahaha :D

We have been to 3 different PF Changs in 3 different cities. They have all been great! We do find that it is salty and I tend to eat too much. This last time was on Spring Break. we all order from the gluten-free menu.. I had my handy 15 yr old boy with me. This insures I can't over eat. :P

I've never had a problem with them either. I just wish they had one closer and weren't located at a huge mall that I hate the driving hassle with. :( My DS when he is in town will take the half hour drive (one way) to get me the spicy chicken and snow peas and garlic that is my favorite. He will be coming home for a visit soon and I can't wait to see him and to indulge in my favorite dishes.

Ravenwood - those are both my favs as well!! I ate there last week and had an excellent experience. I got my order to go - although, they did throw in a fortune cookie - I politely handed it back to get rid of temptation. She apologized and said "sorry it's just a habit to give them to everyone". No harm done since they are wrapped in plastic. They are a bit expensive, but I find one order makes two meals so it's great when I want to splurge. Their flourless chocolate dome with berries is the best dessert on the planet too. Great - now I'm having a craving. :)

My Favs, too! I have been told several times that they give the fortune cookies because people want the fortune even if they can't eat the cookie. One waitress offered to open it & read the fortune so I wouldn't have to touch it. I am the only one gluten-free but the gluten-free menu has everything we want so we all order gluten-free.

A little secret: the regular meats are marinated in gluten-free sauces. :ph34r:

Look on the website & maybe email them about the soy. I have heard they can make stuff without the gluten-free soy sauce. Might not be quite the same but probably still good.

Another thing to add to that order. Now I'm craving that spicy chicken and chocolate! Have to drive for an appoinment that's half way there this week....maybe I'll chance the traffic.

I find it makes at least two meals also, even when my son and I just split an order there is still some left over.

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
