Who knew?? I was at this great Irish Pub for dinner this weekend, and had french fries.  Harmless right? NO! Although they did not appear to be breaded, I was definitely not feeling my best a couple hours after the meal.  My advice? ASK.  No matter how annoying it gets to check that everything is gluten-free, just one slip can leave you in bed for a day or two.  Remember that some experts also suggest staying away from food that's been contaminated-so in my case, the fries could easily have been fried in the same oil vat as their fish & chips or onion rings.  So a word from the (not so) wise- always double check!!  If in doubt, go without.
