It is with much sadness that I say there must be some cross contamination at Pho 7 in Mechanicsburg, PA.
I have eaten there about a dozen times and had suspected it from the first time but my symptoms were mild and I blamed it on something else (and I was in denial because it is so good).
It wan’t till I ate there back to back on a Sat and Mon when I could confirm what I was afraid to admit.
This time I had more severe symptoms and the ultimate confirmation that I had been glutenned - the dreaded DH rash.
Because there are a few gluten items on the menu, it must be cross contamination of the broth or some other handling issue. Please note: I am extremely gluten sensitive being celiac. Others may not be effected and of them I am very envious. The people and the service have always been great.
11-20-2018 Fantastic GF meal. Great knowledge of GF options. Only things to avoid are hoisin sauce, meatballs and egg rolls. Pho is made using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
The amazing pho here has me hooked! Every time I go here I get the same server who is gluten free herself and super helpful! she even brings me some gluten free hoisin sauce :)
Food was delicious and fresh. Staff was incredibly helpful. Our server was gluten free herself.
Awesome pho! The only items with gluten are meatballs and hoison sauce.
