A Life Saver

Savory Moments is a store that specializes in ready-made and frozen gluten free meals that are produced onsite. They're prepackaged in single size servings or family size. They also carry typical GF products like Udi's. Some of the meals I've bought and loved are Kung Pao chicken, Seafood Paella, Teriyaki chicken, and Indian Chicken Palak w/jasmine rice. My two favorites are Vegetable Lasagna and Bourbon BBQ Ribs. I work into the evenings, so having these gourmet meals to throw in my microwave are a life saver. The store is a little off the beaten path, so I hope people will discover them so they will continue to make delicious, safe and convenient food for us GF people.

French Dining the Gluten Free Way at Mon Ami Gabi in Parisien Hotel

Reviewer: GailS from Issaquah, WA, United States
Reviewed on Sep 02, 2010

Let me tell you about one of the best restaurants offering a gluten free menu that I have ever experienced. Mon Ami Gabi is located on the Vegas Strip at the Parisien right across from the Bellagio hotel, with its fountains providing a show if you sit by the windows or at the outdoor patio, every 15 minutes. There is a full gluten free menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner including desserts and appetizers. This is a high class French restaurant. When they brought bread for my husband, I was given warm slices of gluten free bread. I ate French Onion soup for the first time in years with gluten free bread covered by a gooey layer of Gruyere cheese. I had a steak with Bearnaise sauce that was "to die for" and the best pommes frites I've ever tasted (even better than what I've had in France). For dessert, I had the Peach Parfait with little merengue cookies. The best part was that the selections on the menu (check it out online) were not the typical spartan affairs without good sauces, the level of elegance not on the same par as the regular fare. Our server, Herve, was polite and enthusiastic to please. He kept reminding me that as a restaurant they were there to please all of their customers. Well, he definitely made me happy. He also felt free to ask me if I had suggestions about what they could do to make the dishes better and the preparation and serving safer to eliminate cross-contamination. After a disasterous experience eating Buzio's Restaurant at the Rio (don't ever go there!) the night before, I felt like kissing Herve's feet in gratitude. After going online, I notice they also have restaurants in Chicago, Oakbrook, Reston and Bethesda. If they are anywhere near the standard of this edition, they are well worth checking out. Now I just have to hope they open one in Seattle, my neck of the woods.

Bring Your Own Pasta

Reviewer: GailS from Issaquah, WA USA
Reviewed on Jun 04, 2009

My daughter and I went to have a meal between seeing many movies at The Seattle Film Festival. Bleary-eyed and empty-headed, we needed a break from staring at movie screens. I'm always reluctant to go to an Italian restaurant for the obvious reasons, but I was thrilled to find a staff so eager to accomodate me. Our server, Oliver, immediately started making recommendations as soon as he heard I needed a gluten-free meal and assured me that they knew how to keep my food safe from cross contamination. The best part, though, was when he told me that I could call in advance in the future to tell them I was bringing my own pasta and they would create the same pasta dishes for me that were on their regular menus. This is a great restaurant and the food was excellent. I was not greeted with that haughty, "Oh no, another crazy lady with crazy diet requests" or total ignorance about what I was talking about. I'm planning on going there soon and bringing my own pasta. My daughter's pasta dish looked too good to pass up next time.
