I don't know if anyone has seen the Arthur episode "Binky Goes Nuts" http://pbskids.org/arthur/parentsteachers/promo/ but in the episode Binky finds a nutfree Chinese restaurant.

Does anyone know of a such a beast in the Toronto area?

thanks in advance

I miss Chinese so much! Does anyone know of a restaurant that does nut-free Chinese? I bought some frozen Chinese food (no nuts on the labels!) at Sobey's recently but we haven't tried it yet.


allergic to tree nuts, peanuts & OAS

Chinese food is fairly risky. Even if the label doesn't list nuts, it's safest to call the manufacturer to be sure that there's no cross-contamination. Not all food labels are as stringent as they ideally should be. Good luck!

About 2 weeks ago my family ordered from a restaurant and I ate my homemade rice, veggies and the frozen Wing Wong egg rolls (bake) & chicken balls (boil in a bag) from the grocery store. It tasted what I remember chinese food to taste like (yum!) and no reaction! A great alternative for me!

Yeah we've "resorted" to conquering Chinese food at home as well. Ok that should be "Chinese" food as our favourites are Chicken Balls and General Tso's Chicken.

We also had a friend recently relocated from China recommend the following cookbooks:
* Fuschia Dunlop's "Land of Plenty" -- pretty authentic regional cooking
* Barbara Tropp's "China Moon" -- more recognizable favourites
* fave Chicken Ball recipe from here: http://www.recipezaar.com/132546 (makes a tonne though)

One of the positive effects of having food allergies has been we've really taken our culinary abilities up a notch or two. We've tackled Mexican, Indian (various regions), Japanese and baking including donuts.

Curious if this has been others experience as well

I don't know of a restaurant, but FYI... M & M's meatshops, carries a binder with all allergens listed on their foods. If you go there just ask them to check in their binder, and you'll see if nuts or peanuts is checked off or not. We buy the chicken balls, garlic ribs, and chicken fried rice there, we checked the binder and they were free of peanuts and nuts. Hope this helps a little. Their chinese food is really good and quick to make at home.
