Gluten-free dim sum in Toronto? Does this exist?

looz | Feb 6, 2014 04:35 PM

My husband has recently been diagnosed with celiac, and now has to be extra-careful to avoid gluten. This has put a serious crimp in our regular Sunday dim sum habit - while some things could easily be made gluten-free, we've been staying away from Chinese restaurants under the assumption that everything has likely been cross-contaminated from the soy sauce.

I'm really missing having dim sum in my life, and I was wondering if anyone knows of anywhere in Toronto that does gluten-free dim sum. The only Asian restaurant I have found that advertises that they do gluten-free is the pan-Asian Riz on Bayview, but from what I can tell, they don't do dim sum.

At this point I'm willing to settle for mediocre quality. I'll likely start making some from scratch at home, but that's a big undertaking for me, especially when you want some variety, so I would love to hear if anyone knows of a Celiac-friendly Chinese restaurant! We're downtown (near Queen and Bathurst) but have a car and are willing to travel!

Thanks!! :)
