Restaurant Japan Town San Francisco?
0

6 posts in this topic

I'll be in San Francisco at the end of the month. I was hoping to get a meal in Japan Town, but the restaurants listed on Japan Town's website don't have gluten-free menus. I have the international dining cards from Triumph Dining, but the language barrier still concerns me. I react to small amounts of cross contamination. I am able to eat out, but I only go to places that are well versed in gluten-free issues. So does anyone know of a place that's safe to eat?

Oh, for the rest of the city, I already know about Pica Pica Kitchen and will go there as soon as I drop my bags at the apartment where I'm staying. They have bread made of corn flour! I can't eat anything made of brown rice, so I haven't had bread in almost a year-and-a-half!

Not sure where else. I also can't eat garlic, onions, dairy, number of fruit and veggies, etc. etc, so finding a place with simple food isn't easy! Guess my Mr. Bento will get to see a lot of the city. It's better traveled than some people I know! LOL!

The best japanese place in san Fran was in J town but at 108b Carl St in the Haight. Called Hama Ko.

Mostly just sushi and i would bring my own soy sauce and the cards but the quality was amazing.

The gluten free grocery store in the Dogpatch

Mariposa Bakery in the Ferry building

The Plant Cafe Organic

I won't list more because I'm not familiar with who doesn't use rice flour, but there are a lot of options

Thanks, y'all! That's a good start. I actually can't eat any of the baked goods from Mariposa because they all have brown rice in them. Pretty much 90%+ of gluten-free baked goods do it seems. And the rest have something else I can't eat like honey or juice concentrates. I have actually gone into a 100% gluten-free bakery/cafe and had to eat meat without bread! LOL!

A friend recommended a place called Source, in San Francisco. I've not eaten there, but they are vegan and gluten free, according to their website. If you try it, please post about your experience!

You might want to check out DOSA if you like Indian food. I ate there and they were very aware of gluten-free and CC. By the way, so jealous you are going to Pica Pica. I still have dreams of their maizewich!! :)

    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.  
    • Another thing to investigate is SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can cause all of these symptoms. There is a breath test to check for it which any GI doctor should know about, although you have a better chance of knowledge at a teaching hospital.  There's a lot of new research in this area. Here is more information: http://www.siboinfo.com/overview.html The current thought is that many IBS cases are actually SIBO. The treatment requires antibiotics (standard or herbal, both work) and dietary adjustments to reduce fermentable carbs so as not to feed the bacteria.  If it is very advanced, it can take multiple courses of treatment and for some people it seems to be chronic. There is always an underlying cause. Food sensitivities and malfunctioning migrating motor complex are the two big ones. Also structural problems with the intestines that slow motility is another.  There is a high prevelance of SIBO in gluten intolerance. My theory is that it is the neuro toxicity of gluten in susceptible individuals that slows gut transit and sets up a perfect condition for bacterial overgrowth.  But I'm not a doctor  I just have a daughter with chronic SIBO and gluten intolerance that manifests itself in neurological symptoms.   You might want to look into it.  The above website is a treasure trove of information. 
    • 1. My thyroid was tested and is in the normal range.    2. I'm not taking any medication so nothing to interfere with test results.  3.  My endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and that's what the GI chalked up to my very rare ibuprofen use. I use ibuprofen maybe once a month if that.  4.  I'll check into anything to figure out what's wrong     I got my Celiac test back today. It showed no evidence of Celiac disease. So I'm back at the drawing board. I did another stool test today also.
