Nan King Chinese Cuisine – 211 Martindale Rd., St. Catharines, Ontario
One of the things I missed most when I was diagnosed with celiac disease is Chinese food. I used to love going to buffets and loading up my plate. A couple of years ago, a friend of mine told me this restaurant can modify my meal to make it gluten free. I was shocked. I was excited. I put in an order right away!
When I called the restaurant I asked if they had gluten free items on their menu. There was no hesitation by the person who answered the phone. She said, “yes, we have gluten free soya sauce in our kitchen and will use corn starch as a thickener instead of flour.” She gave me several choices of what items they were able to modify. I ordered, my friend picked it up and we both enjoyed our dinner. She with her gluten and me with my gluten free Chinese food! It was delicious, I didn’t feel sick, and I finally got to enjoy one of the many things I have been missing out on all these years.
If you are celiac or gluten intolerant and live in this area, give them a try!
Please keep in mind this restaurant cooks with ingredients that contain gluten, therefore, cross-contamination is possible.
