From the celiac listserv: SO LA area:

Today, a new celiac discussion group has been created for many communities in the South Los Angeles area that were heretofore underserved.

As these communities lie along Interstate 105, the group is named "Gluten Free Way 105." These L.A. County cities and neighborhoods include: Athens, Bellflower, Compton, Downey, Florence-Graham, Fox Hills, Harbor Gateway North, Hollydale, Huntington Park, Hyde Park, Inglewood, Lennox, Lynwood, Norwalk, Paramount, Rancho Dominguez, South L.A., Southgate, Studebaker, Walnut Park, Watts, Westchester, Westmont, and Willowbrook.

GFW 105 is open to anyone who lives or is concerned with life in these and neighboring communities, and who is committed to a diet free of gluten, whether due to one's sensitivity thereto or a diagnosis of celiac disease. The new group's web site is:
health.groups.yahoo.com/group
/GFW105/
.

PEI WEI quick warning: Pei Wei is WONDERFUL for GF Asian food (they even have their own GF menu and are great about double-checking everything for you!)

I just wanted to let everyone know, since this is a nutrition AND GF group, that the nutritional info on their web site is a bit misleading. The calorie and fat counts for their foods almost always indicate that ONE plate of food counts as TWO servings. Take what you see and double it!

It's still not horrendously bad for an occasional treat, and it's wonderful that they are so GF-friendly, but please take care to note the actual numbers of calories and fat etc. that you are consuming! :)

It works if you do it. It doesn't if you don't. It's that simple.

NYC's Babycakes is to open soon in LA! From their newsletter:

Due to the incredible success of our New York bakery, we have decided to give Los Angeles a shot. We have secured a location on the

corner of Spaulding and Beverly

(we are sure a lot of you have already seen our sign), yet we are still a number of months away from our Grand Opening. We, of course, will keep everyone posted as to our progress.

visit them at www.babycakesnyc.com (they will mail you gf bakery items, too).

The web site http://www.glutenfreeinsd.com is mainly based around the San Diego area but also has information about chain restaurants that are located elsewhere. They are very careful with their information and always cite a source for it, and they usually include a direct quote from the restaurant or company about the gluten status of their foods.

If you are going to travel to San Diego, it's also helpful because it tells about specific locations and who was friendly and who was not.

The site is kind of strangely organized, but once you find the info it's a gold mine. :)

It works if you do it. It doesn't if you don't. It's that simple.

SAN DIEGO: Balboa Park, *Prado* in the hospitality paviolion.

This is from the celiac listserv this week:
Hi,

I just returned from San Diego, where I ate several times at Prado, in the hospitality pavilion in Balboa Park. It is a wonderful restaurant with a staff aware of gluten-free diets.

On my first visit I had the seafood Paella, followed by a Chocolate Lava cake. The next time I had fish tacos with their Tahitian cheesecake flan
for dessert. My server also recommended one of the two risottos on the menu.

The chocolate lava cake also comes with a small baked Alaska, which one server said was GF, but another said it wasn't . Regardless, the ice cream can be served with the lava cake without the chocolate base of the baked Alaska. Another GF dessert was their sorbet trio.

My new discovery, in Los Angeles, is a GF bakery:
The Sensitive Baker
The website is: http://www.thesensitivebaker.com
Located at 10826 Ĺ Washington Blvd. Culver City
Cross street is Overland Ė itís west of Overland
Itís open 6 days a week Ė closed on Saturday
If youíre in the Los Angeles area itís worth fighting the traffic to get to this gem! I tried the:

Breadsticks Ė Devine!! Better than many doughy, gluten breadsticks I have had in my lifetime. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside with a hint of olive oil and rosmary. 6/$4.4.95

Focaccia Triangle Ė WOW!! Italian style bread with a kiss of olive oil, garlic, rosemary and sea salt. 6/$11.95

Chocolate cupcake Ė heaven on earth! The cake is rich but not overly sweet and has a perfect texture. The icing is rich, deep chocolate that is not too sweet but will completely satisfy the chocoholic

Plum fruit Tart Ė made with fresh plums was very good. The crust was good after defrosting. I suspect that it would have been much better when it was fresh. Guess Iíll have to go back for a fresh one!
