those tiny bowls they place next to your crab legs in red lobster or wherever......
I was always a bit suspicious.....

I have not had crab legs in more than a year and a half, since I last went to a Chinese resturant. Typically there is a large pot on a warmer (like they do with soup) filled with melted butter, you ladle out what you want. I am less suspicious of that than Red Lobster - but one never really knows without checking.

Quoted from meribelle
I still wonder what is the 'safe-est' thing to order (with the least cornstarch and wheat) on the Chinese menu. Any ideas?



I prefer Thai food to chinese...their recipies seem to use less of the avoids...i always order a chicken dish called Larb Gai...simply delicious. It's ground chicken in a spicy lime juice. Here is a similar recipe...ibut i think it tastes better with 2 tsp of brown sugar mixed in...it's also good with a little jasmine rice..

Also, Thai restaurants serve a dish called Thai Beef Salad...rare cooked flank steak marinated in lime juice, with shallots, green onion etc... it's addicting.
Here is a recipie that sounds like what i eat at my local restaurant:

if anyone tries it, let me know how you like it!

Chinese food does not agree with my tummy so I quit eating it all together. Cant even eat the fortune cookie now and I loved those.

I cant eat crabs legs due to being highly allergic to them.

Lola, drawn butter is ghee, to the best of my knowledge, or clarified butter.

Occasionally I 'sin' at PF Chang's. At least you can order from the Gluten Free menu to make sure it has no wheat in it. Corn starch and soy are still a problem, especially for O-non's and I usually get sick afterwards. Some chinese places will be happy to cook to order, and they can leave out the corn starch and give you a runny sauce. You can also order plain steamed veggies and rice...bland but safe. I trust the veggies at PF chang's pretty well, but most places I always specify to make it with no seasonings, just steam it or saute it in olive oil, please.

If you can find a place that will do it (or cook it yourself) just season it with toasted sesame oil, sea salt, and nutritional yeast, and arrowroot if you want it saucy. I need to develop an actual recipe for this, but I had it in Japan a couple times and it was really tasty...they know how to serve you in Japan, they're happy to fix it however you ask, no questions asked. If you find a restaurant like that in America, keep it in business, and let me know where it is!

Go ahead and throw something at me now....BUT I actually love to eat at my favorite Chinese dive we call the "Loot Beer Palace".  (We only go there a few times a year but once when the waitress asked my husband if he wanted Loot Beer, we knew we were regulars and the name just stuck!)  I was hospitalized once back in the 80's from MSG laden Chinese that my roommate made but this Loot Beer Palace food makes me feel good.  I fill up on the yellow rice with veggies in it and pile on the steamed green beans, broccoli & chicken pieces.  I sometimes allow myself only one Crab Ragoon pastry which I'm sure is filled with every imaginable avoid.  The veggies have "Wege-Table Oil" on them (My kids threatened me not to ever ask any questions there!)

Now, my TYPE O husband on the other hand, he gets sick just about everytime we eat there.  He eats the Crab Legs and the "whatever butter" dipping stuff like there's no tomorrow.  We obviously don't eat the same things so it's hard to tell what it is but what he eats there does not agree with him either.  

Any other a's out there?  I'm wondering if I'm alone here???
