My Vegas Trip Did Not Go Very Well in Traveling with Celiac Disease Posted September 21, 2006 · Report to Admin I too find the using the word allergic works much better, even if it's not really true. I know many with Celiac that had great trips to Vegas (not on this board) and most of them use the word allergice to get the attn. needed. However, beware that even using that word is not a surefire way to get safe food. I was recently at a hoity toity place for a business lunch. The place knew I needed a gluten free meal before I arrived. I spoke to the watier who knew what I could have on the menu...it wasn't much. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken but croutons were not listed on the menu (they were listed for some of the salads) so I didn't order without croutons (big faux pas) so of course my salad arrived with artfully placed croutons around the bowl. It was the only time I didn't remember to mention no croutons, and the first time I was served them since my dx. I don't care how expensive a place is, if you don't go over everything with them, they may not feed you safely.
