Celiac-friendly restaurants on Oahu?

Joebob Jul 17, 2013 11:02 AM

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?

    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.

      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.

        is this for yourself or others? the reason I ask is cause we can tailor our answers according to taste.

          No, not for me, but it seems to be getting a lot more attention lately, almost to the point of becoming fashionable.

            even animals can have it, thus the need for limited ingredient kibble, especially for cats, who have no need for any type of grains; most cheap cat and dog food is loaded with ground corn or wheat.
