Welcome to the forum, King Danilo. I am the wrong one to be answering this question, but the only one around at this time of night :o I am not a chinese food eater or restaurant frequenter, but if they say it is fine, and your body says it is fine, 7 times!!!, I would guess it is probably fine :)

Wow! I'm eating out Chinese this weekend with family and I had planned to order plain rice and steamed vegetables with no sauce and bring my own soy sauce to be safe. I wonder if there are actually more options for me! Anyone else had luck with particular dishes at a Chinese restaurant? I'm not a general tso's fan. :)

Oh how I want that to be true!!! Is it one of those hole-in-the-wall places, or a chain? I miss Chinese food so badly - my newest problem is soy, so I have trouble even going to PF Changs which was my favorite for years!! Hope you get more answers on this one...I'm completely curious now myself!

thank you =) yes it is wonderful knowing it doesent bother me and it seems to be perfect! become a general tsos fan because not only do they have it in providence, but they have the same thing to offer in my home town, with the no flour, soy, and made out of corn starch. ask around =)

I have had nothing but reactions with Chinese restaurants no matter what they have told me...until...I recently ate at a restaurant here in our town called China Inn. I don't know if it is a chain or not. But I talked with the owner to see what I could eat and told her about how I couldn't have soy sauce...since every Chinese restaurant I have checked out the soy sauce had wheat in it. So, the owner said "WAIT!" and she came out with an empty clean 5 gallon bucket that the soy sauce came in! It had all the ingredients in it and no wheat! It had molasses in it unlke La Choy which has corn syrup. I will have to get the name of the sauce and post it later. Then she showed me the menu and how she had listed what she had thickened things with. Example is the Egg Flower Soup...with corn starch like it should be but so far the Chinese restaurants I had tried used flour. The owner was shocked when I told her that and she said that only a bad cook would do that! It turned out that only 4 items on the entire menu could not be eaten except for the obvious ones, such as the breaded or on lo mein noodles, etc. The best was it was delicious and NO REACTION. I usually know before I even leave the restaurant if I have been "poisoned" with gluten. Just having the communcation on the menu was so nice. She told me she had been asked enough times that she felt it would be beneficial for her to change the menu to encourage business. Smart woman! She has my business.

No, I am in Lewiston, Idaho! My good experience was at China Inn, Lewiston ID.

I will also say that I was in Springfield MO recently and ate at a Thai restaurant. I believe it was called Thai Express on Glenstone Ave. He kept telling me there was no soy sauce in the their items unless we ask for it...and then I read their ingredients in their soy sauce and even that was real soy sauce with no wheat! I ate and ate and ate two different time of his curry. Anyone that lives there has got to try his Pumpkin Curry and also the Red Curry. It must have a zillion calories which is fine as long as I don't live there and only visit a couple of times a year! Gained weight. But no reaction. Absolutely none. Almost made me cry it felt so good to eat. That was before I came back home to Idaho and had the wonderful China Inn experience. After I had the good Thai experience I spent quite a bit of time online researching Thai and was amazed how much we can eat. Yes, some recipes do use soy sauce instead of their fish sauce. But the recipes I was reading said the authentic Thai do not use soy sauce. I think I will become a genuine Thai food fan.

I also talked a Thai restaurant that is in a neighboring city, Clarkston, WA. They also told me they didn't use soy unless asked. I only have been there a couple of times but both times, no reaction, but I was very careful how I ordered. Now that I had the good experience in Springfield MO, I am anxious to try more at this Thai restaurant here.

I usually simply cook all my own food, so much cheaper and easier and have people to my house instead of going to theirs if possible. Now I feel like I can finally start to relax when I go out with friends at times.

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
