Maggiano's: Friend or Foe

It all started after I had my yearly check-up with my doctor to make sure I was still eating Gluten Free. Everthing was going well and I didn't have to get a blood draw (which I dread) so my mom and I went out to celebrate.

We went to Maggiano's my used to be favorite restaurant. I had my usual, fettucini alfredo with gluten free pasta and a caesar salad as an apetizer.

When my supposedely gluten-free pasta came out I as usual started scarfing it down. But then I found a noodle that didn't really look like the other and noticed that it was a wheat noodle.

The waiter got us a completely gluten free one but we found out that the IDIOTIC chef cooked my pasta in water that wheat pasta was cooked in first. He thought that I just ordered it because I liked the taste. Not because I had an allergy.

So let this be a lesson to you to never eat at Maggiano's without being in the kitchen while they make your pasta, and to never trust restaurants that don't know what they are talking about, just like stinky Maggiano's!!!!!!! Can you tell I'm mad and sick!!!!!

I can't believe that. Some people just don't have a clue. I hope that you are feeling better now. Its no fun being sick.

that happened to me once. I got so mad because I had already eaten the whole meal.
