Celiac-friendly restaurants on Oahu?
Nadine Kam's mention today of gluten-free options in Arancino's (Kahala) menu prompted my wondering what are the dining options on Oahu for those with celiac disease, particularly because all soy sauces (except special gluten-free preparations) contain gluten. Are the hounds aware of any good restaurants here that pay particular attention to this problem?
Well Joebob, you are gonna kill me for this one . . . but I used to know a guy who had celiac back when no one talked about it. He used to go to Zippy's (yes really) and order the fresh fish plate, grilled with no sauce. He also ordered 'all tossed' (salad), no dressing. And yes, i saw him send it back once or twice when some idiot in the kitchen used soy on the fish or dumped dressing on the salad.
I've heard that Sansei as well as some Roy's locations have a gluten-free menu available...but I would call ahead to make sure.
The new Godmother Pasta vendor in Shirokiya's Yataimura also serves gluten-free pasta.
zPizza, Greens and Vines, Chef Chai are also attentive to gluten-free diets.
