|Gluten free menu at Edmonton's Century Grill|
One was right off the top when the waitress was telling me about the special (this is not to knock the experience because it was great), but she mentioned the burger, but added "I guess that wouldn't apply to you". So at first, I was thinking to myself "huh? what does she mean?" then I was like "ohhhhhhhhhh, because I'm 'Celiac'", then I paused and thought "Wait a second, that wasn't nice to single me out". They could have recommend a alternative special, or just could have done without that comment.
The second thing that stood out was when dessert came, because when it did came, I didn't believe it was gluten free. Now actual Amanda having Celiac Disease beat me to the punch and asked the waiter that served it "Wait, is this actually gluten free?", and yes it was. But that was certainly a happy feeling of disbelief. If that makes any sense.
Okay, so now to the good stuff, our shared experience at Century Grill. Besides that remark from the waitress, Amanda and I had a great time. Let me start off by saying that both Amanda and I agree that Century Grill is doing it right when it comes to putting together a gluten free menu. Their gluten free menu didn't contain a bunch of asterisks saying, you can have this but without a sauce, or without seasoning etc. Their gluten free menu is built for someone with Celiac Disease, with fully seasoned and sauced menu items. Also, one of Amanda's pet peeves is when gluten free only means pasta's and pizza's, because what about the steaks and chickens? are those gluten free too? because they usually are, and Century Grill understood that.
