New PF Chang's Gluten Free Menu

I love Chinese food and being able to eat it anywhere is one of the things I miss the most, especially the buffets!  PF Chang’s has become a favorite of mine because of their gluten free menu and because the quality of food is very good. I have only had good experiences there, and they have not broken my trust that they take all of the precautions and are 100% gluten free.

“P.F. Chang’s upholds a rigorous gluten free cooking process to ensure the dietary safety of guests with celiac disease. The restaurant’s staff takes all the necessary measures of precaution during the preparation and serving of gluten free dishes.”

What I’ve Been Eating- PICS

Well, I’ve been 100% Gluten Free for 9 months.  I thought it was going to much tougher than it has been to eat gluten free 100% of the time.  I can’t recall a time when I have been a big inconvenience or not found something to eat.  Overall, I am eating much healthier than I used to.  I lost some weight at first, but quickly found ways to replace my old favorite foods.

Like I frequently say, I don’t really buy the gluten free “imitation” foods in the stores, and rarely do I splurge and go to gluten free restaurants due to the high cost.   So, it may appear that a lot of my foods resort back to chicken, vegetables, and fruits, but I am able to do infinite variations of these to keep it interesting and usually healthy.

Here is a little recap of the past few months of the things I took photos of….

Fortune Wok: Kansas City

In my Triump: Gluten Free Dining Guide, I noticed a Chinese place nearby.  I figured I’d give it a shot.  I used to love to go to Chinese buffets.  I would sacrifice quality for quantity and the availability of a quick meal.  With the most common soy sauces containing wheat, I thought I’d never be able to eat Chinese again.  I was wrong.  I had a great experience at Fortune Wok in Shawnee Mission!

I ordered the gluten free sesame chicken, and my girlfriend ordered the “normal” people sesame chicken.  The price was a couple dollars higher for the gluten free, but well worth it.  It was still comparable to any nice sit-down chinese restaurant.

My food was GREAT, better than ever expected!  Best Chinese I’ve ever had, period!

My girlfriend even said that mine was better than her “cool people” food.  I have even ordered it take-out since then… just as good!  I started talking to the manager as we were leaving.  She said they she even orderes from the GF menu because it tastes better.

They have two locations in Johnson County:

If you are ever in KC, I’ll join you for some Fortune Wok!

“…and I like Chinese buffets.” BINGO!

Today I was out doing some shopping with someone I had just met.  When it came time for lunch, I asked her where she would like to eat.  I decided not to share that I was eating gluten free and then become a burden on where we could eat.  We both said how we like anything, so then I suggested Chipotle(One of my favorites and somewhere I can eat GF!).  She had never been there but was open to trying it.  Since she had never been there, I asked her what some of her favorites were…. I should have just stuck with the GF place.  This is where it starts to get ugly… She said, “there is a good chinese buffet up the street, and I like chinese buffets.”  

Suddenly, the wheat devil(looks like the typical 400lb. person you see at a buffet) appeared on my shoulder, and then the Gluten Free Angel(I picture her like a mini Jessica Simpson) appeared on the other.  Long story short, Jessica Simpson could not outsmart the Wheat Devil, and he eventually sat on Jessica and won the battle.  I had my first major gluten meal.  

I should have just stuck with Chipotle and Jessica Simpson would have been spared.  Get yourself some GF Soy Sauce so you can make Chinese at home.
