Recently, we received an email from Cindy asking for help regarding gluten-free options on Oki. We don’t have a post specifically about this, so thought we’d bring the question to all of our readers for help.
Hello. My name is Cindy. My husband and I were both Marines stationed on Okinawa 2001-2004. Our first son was born there – we left when he was 8 months old. We are coming back to visit this summer! Yay! But….my son has celiac disease and is on a strict gluten free diet. I plan to bring info written in Japanese with me and realize we will be limited on eating out, but I was wondering if any of you know of local Okinawan/Japanese food that might work for him (even if its just a couple treats/drinks or one or two places that seem to understand the gluten free diet and are willing to accomodate). I just want my son to be able to experience some of the unique treats! Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
Let’s help her out!
