Really enjoyed my dinner at this “create your own stir fry” place.  The menu has GF options noted.  When alerted of the need to be GF I was told the kitchen takes care to use a clean pan and utensils and change gloves, while also being told that gluten containing dishes are prepared in the same space.  I’m hopeful that if a restaurant understands the chance of cross contact they will try to avoid it – though I know that may be wishful thinking.

You fill a bowl  with veggies, then choose a base (white or brown rice or shredded Napa cabbage are GF, but the noodles are not), choose a sauce (3 GF choices: Brown Sauce, House Sweet and Sour or Spicy Thai Sweet Chili) and add a protein. Gluten eaters have 10 additional sauce choices.  Prices vary based on bowl size and protein choice.

I had the large bowl of veggies over a base of 1/2 brown rice and 1/2 shredded Napa cabbage.  Just went with the veggie bar which included tofu and edamame among its 25+ options and did not add an additional protein.  The Brown Sauce was flavorful with an evident, and appreciated, note of garlic.  The portion size was ample.

My dinner was $8.25 with hot tea another $1.  The place is not fancy.  You fill out a paper form, pay at the register, then get your own silverware and condiments.  The paper form even asks: Are your gluten-free selections due to an allergy?

I’d return the next time I’m in the area, though I wouldn’t make a special trip.  If I lived nearby I’d frequent the restaurant.
