Gluten Free All Day

A Gluten Free Blog by Chef Eli G


Pei Wei Asian Diner


Since being diagnosed as a Celiac, one of my food cravings that I never fulfilled was Chinese takeout.

I decided to try out Pei Wei after learning of their GF menu.
They have an easy to understand separate GF Menu with enough choices for my liking.

I spoke with the manager at my location to ensure that they take extreme caution when preparing GF items.
They go to great measures to accommodate GF.

You can place your order online and pick it up at your specified time. Your food will always be ready on time or a few minutes early.

On my first experience driving home, the smell in my car was so good I could barely wait to get home and try it! I got home and dug into the delicious spicy chicken and rice with sugar snap peas and carrots, It was superb. For $9 its a great price.

I did see a huge line at the store, so try doing an online order and pickup..

p.s. they even include GF soy sauce!

Chick-Fil-A Gluten Free Option & Review


Always reliably good food.

Chicken is always juicy and tender, veggies are fresh, sauce selection is superb.

For gluten-free, opt for the lettuce wrapped char-grilled chicken sandwich. The waffle fries are fried in a dedicated fryer, so they are gluten free too!

Friendly staff and understanding of food allergies.
