A Taste Of Edmonton

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If you are in Edmonton, the Taste of Edmonton festival has things labeled as celiac friendly or not. The festival runs through next weekend (July 28th - downtown), and there are 14 different gluten-free foods available. I've eaten twice with no problems. Very fun to be out and about and be able to order booth from a food festival like normal!

That is awesome! I was wondering how they would do that and did not know whether it would be safe for those of us with celiac or not. So glad it is. Darn it - we should have gone this weekend! Do they seem to be very aware?

Both booths I went to were, but they were both Indian food places & those tend to be easily Celiac friendly.

You can get a menu for all the booths when you buy tickets at the front, and it has "C" written next to anything we can eat. (I think there was one mislabel on it--Chef's Grill and Bar had a "C" next to their pie, but I think it was supposed to be next to their stuffed mushrooms.)

All the booths also have signs in front of them with gluten free stuff labeled with the "C." And the food is cooked right in front of you.

That is amazing! They actually had a system in place? Wow. Edmonton certainly has great safe places for us to eat out. Our favourites are Red Ox Inn, Wildflower Grill, corso32, Madison's Grill and, of all things, a fish and chips place called Brit's Fish and Chips. Seriously - they have a dedicated fryer and the battered fish and chips are fried in their own special gluten-free breading. I'm not a fan of deep frying but just adore this place. One of the servers has celiac, too. Have you tried it?

I haven't...I've eaten at a bunch of places here, but none of those. I'm vegetarian too, so I don't think the fish and chips place would work (but I might be able to find something.)

I'll look into the rest of them, thanks for the suggestions!

Oh, sorry. And here I was suggesting all these non-veg places. But I would suspect that they would have at least some choice of things to eat. Usually better restaurants have one vegetarian option. I'm pretty sure that Madison's Grill does. All the places I listed have websites so you could give them a call. Do you have your own favourites in Edmonton? I am always up for trying something different, too! :)

I just moved here, so I'm still learning places to eat. We ate at Sofra once--it was very good. Also at Col Mustard's on 124th--that food was different from any thing I've had, but good. The Dish and the Runaway Spoon didn't have too much both veggie and gluten free, and what I got was too salty, but you might have luck with something else.

There are a lot of places I can eat here...but a lot are a little pricey for regularly eating at! We've eaten at an Indian place downtown several times, but I can't remember the name offhand.

I eat at Boston Pizza a lot. One of their salads made me sick once, but I've never had a problem with their pizzas. There was also a place at the City Centre that made me sick, but I don't remember the name.

I checked out the Duchess Bake Shop, but I wasn't convinced their stuff wasn't cross-contaminated, so I didn't try anything. I'm going to try MRKT downtown soon. They have daily gluten-free stuff.

Oh, and at Kinnickinnick's headquarters, of course! That's only a few blocks from where I live, so I've stopped in for fresh bagels, dinner rolls, and muffins. Plus they seem to have the cheapest gluten-free stuff in the city (their store carries stuff from other manufacturers too.)

I live in Edmonton. I don't eat out alot cuz I often have problems with cc but I've never had a problem with highlevel dinner. Favourite place in the city, has a celiac menu and a dedicated area of the kitchen (including fryer!) I've probably eaten there 30 times and never got sick. You can have the fries, but not their home made ketchup (they have regular ketchup if you ask). I would very highly recommend it. I am also a vegetarian so its great for that to.

This is great. Who does not crave good old diner food occasionally? I had heard about High Level Diner but have not yet been there. We will definitely be there on our next trip. Thanks lots! :)

    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
    • Bit of progress end product still contains gluten....just less of it.....I would still play it safer and just eat non wheat containing foods, and stick to my grain free diet. I honestly think they are going about this wrong, instead of altering the genes of the food that we react to....why not fix us....I money wise it seems like a bad idea for them and much more risky but they could try RNA editing where we would have to come in for constant treatments. But then again snowball chance in hell of having the that pass clinical trials.

      Second point, if you remove the gluten proteins that make the bread sticky and gummy texture...you remove the aspect that makes gluten a binder in bread and why wheat is used in the first place.....might as well just make wheat flavored artificial extract.
      Like buy the new gluten free wheat flour,,,,add a gum to to make it bind up and form up....same principle just that flavor is different. Seems round about.
    • You need to get copies of your medical records & especially of the celiac blood tests. Are you sure the correct tests were done? This is why you need to get those records. Here is the current FULL celiac serum panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG If you didn't get all those tests then you didn't get the full panel. Sometimes your insurance won't allow but a couple of them for screening purposes & you have to get a GI to order the entire panel. It's not unusual for people to test negative to the screening. A number of people on here only test positive to the DGP tests. 10% of celiacs are sero negative. Call the GI every single morning & ask if there has been a cancellation so you can get seen sooner. You sure have a shipload of symptoms that fit celiac! Add your grandma's celiac diagnosis & it's more than likely you are celiac too. Yes, keep eating gluten -- I know you don't want too - HUGS --- until all testing is done & then DO give a strict gluten free diet a try for at least 6 months.
    • Many theories have been fielded about autism. Some research careers have been made by investigating autism, while other careers have been seriously damaged when that research threatened some sacred cows of allopathic medicine. Yet despite all of this active research exploring the world of autism, we continue to experience exponential increases in rates at which autism is diagnosed. And debate continues unabated regarding the causes and appropriate treatments. Part of this increasing trend is, doubtless, because we have gotten better at recognizing the various manifestations of this debilitating condition. However, the evidence indicates that there is a dramatic increase in the absolute incidence of autism. View the full article
    • Don't go gluten free until you find out if they want you to get an endoscopy which they should schedule. Eat gluten every single day until the endoscopy is done.
