Restaurant Review | E&O Asian Kitchen | San Francisco

Recently, I was invited to try the gluten-free menu options at E&O Asian Kitchen in San Francisco, California. I tend to not think of Asian food when it comes to gluten-free dining so I was glad to be introduced to this restaurant. Right away I was very impressed even just upon entering. The interior design is amazing cloaked in warm inviting earth tones. My daughter, Ashlee, home from college, joined me for lunch. Presented with our gluten-free menus (I love it when a restaurant has a specific gluten-free menu), it was hard to choose there are so many GF options. We opted to begin with...

Chuck E Cheese goes gluten-free

Chuck E Cheese goes gluten-free

  I remember going to Chuck E Cheese for the first time as a teenager. Everyone was amazed with the animated characters as seen below. Wow, saying this makes me feel very old.  Now, the kids barely pay attention to the animated band at Chuck E Cheese. They are more obsessed with the electronic games.Sam was over the moon when I told him Chuck E Cheese now has gluten free pizza. It has long been one of his favorite places to go. I read in an article that they are doing a thorough job with their gluten-free offerings so I decided to give it a try. I was very impressed. They offer a GF cheese...

California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

California Pizza Kitchen Restaurant Review

I published my first blog post about California Pizza Kitchen’s gluten-free items about three years ago when I first started blogging. It was right before they pulled their gluten-free pizza off the menu. CPK decided to start over and reintroduce their GF pizza…”the right way.” While they kept certain GF items on the menu, they put the GF pizza on hold. They then approached the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America for a restaurant certification and made many changes to the process of making gluten-free pizza crust in their restaurants. Here are the important...

Cheesecake Factory – Restaurant Review

Cheesecake Factory – Restaurant Review

I’ve continued to eat at The Cheesecake Factory since I became gluten-free seven  years ago. I have found that if I stick to fairly simple meals (plain salmon, brown rice and steamed veggies), most restaurants can handle it (most.…is the key word). I have never once became sick at the Cheesecake Factory after eating the plain salmon meal. So, I was very intrigued when I saw that they now have an official gluten-free menu. Needless to say, I rushed over. How exciting! It’s a totally independent menu. Nice! There were many of their older dishes on this new GF menu which must...

Tips for Dining Out Gluten-Free

Tips for Dining Out Gluten-Free

Who can deny the allure of dining out? It can be a fast and convenient meal. In addition, many social gatherings and celebrations are centered around food and restaurants. But for an individual with food sensitivities, eating out can literally be a health hazard. I tell my clients at the end of their 30 day elimination diet (in which they are not allowed to eat out) dining out GF is like flipping a coin…based on my experience there is a fifty percent chance you are going to get sick from an infraction or some other food reaction. In my opinion, the risk is too high especially if you...

Gluten-free dining at the San Francisco Giants game

Gluten-free dining at the San Francisco Giants game

Sammy and I ventured to San Francisco this week to attend the San Francisco Giant’s Autism Awareness game. Every year the Giants dedicate a game to autism awareness and donates a portion of the proceeds to Autism Speaks, an organization, “dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.” I recently heard that AT&T Park now has gluten-free hot dogs so we were super psyched to go. The last time I went to...
