This restaurant is in the back of an unassuming shopping center and you can't even see it from the street. It is that much more of a treasure because of it. While they don't have a specifically GF menu or GF section, I asked what could be GF and the woman behind the counter (who I assume is the owner) excitedly told me to pick something because they can do 90% of the menu items gluten free. That is awesome. And the portions are huge! And...as a bonus, dining in gets you a free helping of egg drop soup, which was great and also gluten free. Most excellent.

This place is not in the greatest location - it can be a little bit hard to find - but it is totally worth it because it is like gluten-free Chinese food heaven! The woman we spoke to told us that 90% of the regular menu can be prepared gluten-free at no extra charge, which means you can pick almost anything you want! They have all kinds of choices: vegetarian, pork, chicken, duck, beef, shrimp, scallops, fish, and even rice noodles! After so much time spent eating out gluten-free with only a small selection of choices, I have to admit that it was almost overwhelming! When you dine-in they also serve you complimentary soup. The day we went it was a delicious gluten-free egg drop soup, but they were still cooking a batch of the soup while we were eating our dinner. The woman who helped us was sweet enough to package some soup to go for us because she really wanted us to try it. She was super excited to tell us about all the gluten-free options. Let me tell you, I'm sold! Fan's is my new favorite place for Chinese food!
