While I was in Honolulu I was looking for a gluten free meal and I found the US chain restaurant, PF Changs. I was so excited to find a restaurant that offers gluten free. I have not seen this chain restaurant in Canada, so it was my first time there.
PF Changs Gluten Free Menu

I had the broccoli and beef, singapore street noodles and I even had the sorbet for dessert. All the meals were fantastic and the atmosphere at the restaurant was very nice.
PF Changs - How were the Gluten Free Meals?
I asked the waitress about how the gluten free meals are prepared and she told me that all meals are prepared in a separate area with different utensils and woks.
The restaurant staff also brought my meal out and verified that it was a gluten free meal and it had a specific plate which is dedicated to gluten free meals. This was all leading me to conclude that this restaurant takes celiac very seriously and I was pumped.
The issue of cross contamination is serious for someone with celiac. The fact that they had a separate area gave me comfort that the issue was taken care of.
PF Changs Gluten Free - Gluten Testing
I used my Nima Gluten Sensor there and had an error test. I was making some rookie mistakes in the first month of using Nima. Check out this link to see how I was over-stuffing the capsules so you don’t make the same mistake. Even though there was an error, I was happy with the responses I received at the restaurant. The waitress made me feel comfortable that all of the staff are educated in how to correctly deal with the issue of cross contact.
