Oh Noes! Attention Sacramento, Mati's Indian Food Is Closing Soon

4 posts in this topic

Mati's Indian Food, the Sacramento, CA mid-town Indian buffet known for their great food that is also, incredibly, gluten free, (except for the naan and samosas) will be closing after this Saturday, October 27th. :(

We ate there Thursday evening, and received the sad news from them, and they said to pass the word along, that this Saturday evening was going to be their last day open. They know that some people come from a distance to eat there.

If you are a fan of gluten free dining in the greater Sacramento area, this is a sad thing to hear. I would encourage you to stop by if you are in the area.

Mati's had made the move from a small strip mall in Natomas near the basketball arena, to Mid-Town a while back, to a larger restaurant, hoping to get more traffic. They are busy at lunch, but sometimes the dinner hours in the off season are lacking.

They will be missed.

Hi there! I got excited when I saw the word Sacramento on the subject line. We will be spending a week up there for the holidays, visiting my in-laws. It is our first trip there since my 2.5 year old's diagnosis. If you wouldn't mind me asking, do you have other restaurant recommendations in the area? I'll be scouring the Internet before our trip but thought I'd seize on this opportunity and ask a native. Thanks in advance!!

PF Chang's is good for Chinese. In and Out Burger, the burgers can be made "protein style" wrapped in lettuce, and you tell them you have a food allergy (that is what they said to tell the order taker) to whatever you're trying to avoid, so you would need to visit the website and see what normally goes on the burger will do or not. I tell them it is a "wheat allergy" and they do fine. Their fries are the only thing that they fry in their oil, so the fries are safe. There is Mikuni's for sushi. There is a very good gluten free bakery in Cameron Park (east of Folsom) called Azna's. Old Spaghetti Factory has a small but very good gluten free option, you can get several of their sauces over gluten free noodles (the ones here serve spiral shaped gluten free noodles so there is another visual "safeguard"), a chicken breast, and a salad and the ice cream dessert. BJ's Brewhouse (family food chain, several locations) has a gluten free menu (ask for it at the hostess station) and they have a gluten free pizza that you can get many of their toppings on. You can also get salads, potato, or other things, but I have just had the gluten free pizza, the salad, and the gluten free "Pizooki," which is a freshly baked sort of giant chocolate chip cookie-brownie with a scoop of ice cream on top. Specify the gluten free version. :) There is a fish and seafood restaurant called "Scott's on the River" which is a little pricier, but they have a gluten free menu and they are REALLY good. For frozen yogurt in a cup, I have had good luck with the OMG It's Yogurt. I have tried other chains, and have had small hit and miss reactions to something which I am not sure of. With these yogurt places, ask for the ingredients book at the counter, to check the list of ingredients for each flavor. I tend to stick to the vanilla, which seems to always come out of the same dispenser. I try to avoid the ones which seem to specialize in cones or have an awful lot of crumbs laying around and seem to be sticky - the one frozen yogurt shop closer to where I live, looks like a cross contamination nightmare, and they had trouble understanding what I meant when I asked to see the ingredients list. We sort of backed out of there, slowly.

If you are up in the Lake Tahoe area, there is the Drunken Monkey sushi place near Truckee (north end of the lake). Menu redo makes it just a little bit funkier to read ("items marked with # are gluten free" and it's a Japanese symbol ) and it's very good, except lately I would not recommend the spicy tuna right now, as they keep putting this weird onion flavor in it. :unsure: If you are at the opposite end (south) of the lake, there is Freshies which is not too far from Heavenly ski area. Freshies can do much of their menu gluten free, and they have very, very good fish tacos. You want to check their website to see if they will be open, because they close for vacation days sometimes in the early fall in the off season. Also, if you are driving around and need to grab some grocery items, there is a grocery chain called Raley's/Belaire which almost all of them have an organic/specialty foods/gluten free aisle (except the town near where I shop, which has 2, and the one next to a health food store took theirs out, a marketing decision I don't quite get unless they were TRYING to help the Natural food market or whatever gain more customers :huh: ). By comparisons, Safeway is sort of like a black hole for gluten free here in my town (boonies north of Sac), I think they have conceded much of that to the other chain.

Sacramento has a Whole Foods in Sac itself, and there is another one in Roseville. I have kvetched here about the Roseville one several times because they tend to scatter a lot of their gluten free stuff ALL over the store instead of concentrating it, but I have noticed that, like magic, the gluten free stuff seems to be migrating slowly towards its own aisle, which is next to 2 other aisles with a lot of it (the cereal and the boxed nut milks aisle). Maybe the help got tired of leading The Lost to the One Item. ;) I do not want to jinx myself but Whole Foods currently has a few gluten free flours I can use which has driven me back there and made me say nice things about them, because I can't do the Bob's Red Mill anymore. And then they had some liquid soaps I could use (we are talking sensitive skin here, I am pathetic) and then.... there was the gluten free makeup powder I was not allergic to. Then my local grocery stopped carrying the powdered laundry detergent I need, and that meant now I am going all the way to the WF again to buy that. People complain about food being expensive or hard to find, but if your skin is reacting to most detergents, you'll go anywhere to get what you need.

Sacramento also has a Gluten Free Specialty grocery in midtown. This is such a kick to have a whole store gluten free, it's worth it just to visit, but you'll end up buying something. They also get in freshly baked breads from other gluten free bakeries, like Mariposa's in Oakland. Sometimes you can buy frozen Mariposa's items in the freezer case of Whole Foods.

Pizza, there is also Seven Sisters Pizza, in Citrus Heights, and they are a gluten free restaurant, that sells their crusts to other stores. Their pizza is going to be more pizza - y that BJ's, but BJ's has the pizooki dessert thing and a regular menu if you have to do a mixed menu if someone thinks they must have gluten in your group.

Thank you SO much for your response. I'm so much less anxious about the trip now. We're in LA so I'm already familiar w PF Changs and BJ - glad to know they are up there too. We are hoping to make a short trip to Tahoe too do thanks for that.

Now I can limit my worrying to how dismissive my mother-in-law will be about my daughter's new diet. :)

Thanks again!

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
    • It was difficult yes, but on reflection worthwhile as the gluten challenge confirmed that a wide spectrum of symptoms were all either fully or mostly resolved on a gluten free diet and resuming it saw them reappear. Once you know this it doesn't really matter what blood tests say, you don't want eat gluten ever again, or at least I did't. It sounds like you're happy to go gluten free, you may want to take a look here for some tips:  Best of luck, hope you find as much support here as I have  
    • If she was just tested for DQ2 or DQ8 then it isn't for sure that she will never develop celiac.  There are other genes that have been found to be associated but not all doctors are aware. The gene I have a double copy of, DQ9, is one example.  Here is one research article but more can be found for those interested.  Evidence that HLA-DQ9 confers risk to celiac disease by presence of DQ9-restricted gluten-specific T cells http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0198885912000262
    • Well, thank you for replying. Yes, I would also like to know and have a certain "validation" but I will go on to eat gluten free.  Thank you for the idea of keeping a food diary.  I was keeping one for weight loss, but I guess my primary focus will be gluten-free as well.  I'm sorry you had to eat gluten just to find out both tests were negative. That was disappointing, I can only imagine. 
    • Thank you everyone. Jmg & cycling lady sorry for being snippy . I appreciate your help just frustrated. sorry if I am a bit snippy. Not well as you sense. I hate this particular symptom/ reaction. The gluten challenge opened the door to a bunch of  symptoms I buried for 3 1/2 gluten-free years that I had no intention of waking again. I now know it's always been immune and food, but get frustrated over the the amount of time it has not been diagnosed it feels unjust and that most Dr still don't get it 38 years later.  It was reborn after my gluten challenge and I am beyond sad we discovered my DS has this too. As we removed my allergens from the house and my DS was off the foods, if he ate something at school or a friends (because we just removed it for mom) we quickly found and he that he's like mom. He looks like dads mini me but more handsome, but has moms food issues -yikes.  His ped Dr would not test him for celiac or refer him and does not understand food intolerances vs IgE allergies. when we ask for a prescription for allergen free Advil or Tylenol ( I found a compounding  pharamacy willing to work with us) he had ortho work done , she tells us she does not know how to write a prescription for that.   We really don't like reactions and it did say 100 percent juice and quite frankly we believed it.  The histamine  definetly a potential issue as sulphites does not seem consistent food diary wise. I am not sure what is going on. More likely we are celiacs with leaky guts manifesting as food sensitivities trying to heal. I just know I have more intolerances then when I went in. I went into the challenge not being able to eat gluten and came out with all heck breaking lose.  I quit my PT job so I can Prep and cook from scratch entirely growing all my own herbs etc trying to heal. My husband actually enjoys our food even more and tolerates the "woman he married being gone and replaced by this alien" my words not his. He does want me to heal, believes I will, so he can have his wife back. I question if I just have to accept who I am now. I am disheartened that it's slow to heal and despite my years of this undiagnosed garbage I can't get my son the help he needs in 2017! thanks for letting me rant. It was stupid to believe a processed juice maker I'm waiting to activate my water kefir colony so we can add something to our homemade almond milk and water options.   thanks for letting me rant and why do I still have to rant.   maybe the 43 years of frustration and anger of being an undiagnosed celiac.   so sorry y'all. Cranky few days
