What Was The Best Experience You Had Dining Out With Food Allergies?

What Was The Best Experience You Had Dining Out With Food Allergies?

Walt Disney World (not as good an experience at Disneyland though). No matter where I eat, I get to meet a chef or representative from the kitchen. They listen, take notes, consider what my options are, then walk me through the menu or buffet. I've always felt safe at every restaurant I've tried from counter service to buffets to sit down meals.

I find Thai and Vietnamese restaurants have many different foods that don't have things in them that I'm allergic to. (Gluten, dairy, raw onion and bell pepper are foods that make me ill.)

Disneyworld! All of the restaurants were very accomodating for my then 4 y.o. daughter. Each restaurant had the chef come out and talk to us about her allergies. If it was a buffet, he would walk with us and tell us what was ok to eat. If he didn't think there was enough, he would offer to make her something off menu. The funniest experience was in a restaurant where the dessert choices were a bowl of grapes (allergic) and ice cream. Since we had the dining plan he insisted she get a dessert. She was tired of ice cream, she told him. He asked her what she wanted and she said chocolate cake. It wasn't even on the menu. Out comes dessert and she received the biggest piece of chocolate cake. Her brother's eyes almost popped out. He then commented that he wished he had allergies. They all went above any expectations.

BC Canada here. There is a restaurant chain called "The Boathouse" web site http://boathouserestaurants.ca . I went to the White Rock, BC location with a friend on 2 different occasions. I have a severe reaction to onions together with many food sensitivities. The staff and chef treated me with such concern and care. They said they have a special section in their kitchen for people with food needs like me. The felt so welcome and included in the food process. I felt like a Queen with their customer service.

I was at a Biaggi's (SP?) in Omaha and ordered a pizza with no sauce. Instead of the usual blank stare this waitress asked if was an allergy thing. It was a very nice surprise for someone to actually ask instead of treating me like I'm just picky or completely nuts. This waitress actually wrote it on my ticket that it was an allergy situation. I wish more would be like her, makes me feel understood and cared for.
