Masa Mexican Restaurant (Head Chefs Feedback)

My husbands 30th Birthday is coming up and he really wanted to go back to this restaurant he went to with his work. http://www.masa-restaurant.com/ I called asking about their gluten-free options and was told they would get the info and someone would call me back.

I was never called, HOWEVER The Head executive chef there e-mailed me directly from his home e-mail to answer my questions a couple days later.

In my e-mail to them I explained that I have a HIGH allergy to wheat and am Gluten Intolerant. Along with that I have allergies to seafood, seed, and nuts.

The following was our conversation and the great assistance he was able to provide :)

Subject: Dinner at Masa

Sorry for the delay in my response regarding your gluten free and specific allergy menu options for your future dinner at Masa. We have many options that are gluten free and can do just about anything on the menu without seeds or nuts except the Mole and a few of the desserts. There are trace amounts of flour in the tortillas so if it is an extreme reaction I suggests avoiding any of the corn based dishes such as tacos, enchiladas, quesadilla, and unfortunately the chips; however as I mentioned they have very small traces of flour. We do have some seafood items but the kitchen staff is very cautious about cross contamination and dealing with seafood allergies. There are no hidden seafood options on the menu such as shellfish stocks or bases. There is beer in the queso fundito, quesadilla, and the beef enchilada so I would avoid those options with the wheat allergy.

Our service staff is very knowledgeable on ingredients and together we would be very happy to accommodate you and your husband for dinner!!

Let me know if you have any other questions and we look forward to having you.

I am off work today so this is my personal email, feel free to email me back here otherwise I will be back in the restaurant tomorrow.

    • Just search for GIs in your area.   Usually doctors post biographies.  Look for someone who mentions celiac disease in his/her bio.  Then call the office to confirm.   Sacramento is a pretty big city.  If you are not successful, there is a celiac disease center at Stanford University.  
    • Maybe you shouldn't take all these movies you watch so literally?  Maybe check the actual report/ study before you get too upset?  I think you might be exaggerating the WHO findings?   but, if you want to go vegan -  there are more grains a  Celiac can have than can't.
    • For my recent endoscopy I was put out temporarily.  Didn't feel or know a thing untill it was over and I was back in the recovery room. The university of Chicago celiac center recommends 12 weeks of eating a little gluten every day before the blood antibody tests.  And 2 weeks of gluten eating before the endoscopy.
    • There are several celiac centers in CA.  You may have to travel a bit to get to one.    Of course that's pretty normal for CA anyway! https://www.beyondceliac.org/celiac-disease/additional-information/hospitals-labs/  
    • I am almost a year into my celiac diagnosis after 13 years of horrible health issues.  What I learned from my Naturopathic Doctor that was the most shocking is that gluten molecules~flour, can stay in the air for up to 48 hours, contaminating any foods you prepare and cook in that same space.  This can make you terribly sick regardless of the utensils and towels, of which you should definitely have separate.  I live with my husband and son and I can't take gluten away from them, they still get their bread and cookies~store bought, but any baking I do is with gluten free flours.  If they want fresh baked gluten filled treats there are oodles of options in cafes and bakeries.  They are aware of what needs to be done to keep from cross contaminating things in our kitchen but it is hard to remember all the details sometimes.  It is much easier and safer, to have your own condiments (or anything that is dipped into) and toaster and pans and utensils and probably towels too.  It is more expensive to start but it sure isn't any fun to suffer from someones accidental exposure....best wishes to you on your healing journey.
