While most Asian restaurants are a no-no because the soy sauce being on everything, I have found that sushi and hibachi are usually okay if you speak your mind, so we decided to take a chance. This was a chance I was totally satisfied with. The host seemed somewhat limited in knowledge but asked the chef who assured us something could be figured out. When I sat I again asked my server, who enlightened me to the fact that almost all dishes could be modified to be gluten free, given that they are just meat and fish, although obviously, none of the sauces were gluten free given the addition of soy and other gluten thickeners. My waitress explained that they had a gluten free server who was helping them figure out gluten free sauce alternatives and would be helping them construct a gluten free menu in the future. She told me that she would speak to the gluten free server to figure out sauce alternatives for tonight. I figured why not, ordered the Chicken Shabu Shabu and took a risk with my food being served bland. When they brought out our food I was greeted by flavorings (at no extra cost) in the form or minced garlic, ginger and chives as well as chili paste, sesame oil and Chili powder with a side of avocado to cut the spice but not the flavor. The idea of Shabu Shabu is to cook your finely cut meat and veggies in boiling water at your table. I cooked up a storm and loved every minute of it. Food for me is about taking the time to create and enjoy, which is exactly what this experience offered for me. We were not rushed whatsoever and enjoyed a long relaxed meal. The quality of all of my offered ingredients together was better than I think ANYTHING I have eaten that contained gluten. I had a smile on my face the entire time and left completely and utterly satisfied and full, but not too much so. I would eat here every day if I could, but unfortunately it is so far away from my home address! I highly, highly recommend going here, without a doubt. Of course ask for the recommendation of their gluten free server and maybe by that point they will have their gluten free menu prepared! SUBMITTED BY CELTIC CELIAC, http://celtic-
