Made in Japan is a restaurant at a food court in our local mall. Dd can eat noodles there as the yakosoba noodles are buckwheat based and contain no egg. They cook everything on a hot metal sheet in front of you so you can see what they are using. They do serve shrimp so it you have a shellfish allergy it is probably not a good idea but for egg and dairy it has been wonderful to be able to allow her to have a restaurant experience that is safe.
We bring lots of diaper wipes and clean the table and chair first as all other restaurants in the food court seem to serve dairy.

I'm sorry to bring this up, but aren't you worried about cross-contamination on that plate where they cook everything on? You wipe the chair and table, but what goes on that plate goes in your meal and most places like that only "wash" those plates with some occasional water that they simply poor on it... Is the allergy anaphylactic? Appart from the safe noddles, sauces and other ingredients probably contain egg or dairy...

Good point! Don't ever be sorry to bring up a safety issue. You might have thuoght of something that I haven't. "It takes a village to raise a child." Lol, It takes a village to cover all the angles of food allergies.
I have just e-maied the company to inquire about the dumpings.
I have already inquired about the sauce they use and it's ok. Other than that, all that is cooked on the plate is beef, chicken, tofu and a vegetabe mixture.
If the dumplings check out, it shoud be ok. :)
Thanks!

Also, watch out for sesame at asian restaurants like this one. They are sometimes black sesame seeds, and can be mistaken for pepper.

So we went to our favourite mall on Saturday to see Santa, do some shopping and eat at this outlet at the food court. For y dauhters allergies, this is a safe place and I like that they cook the food in front of you.
Everything went well until...I noticed that they are promoting their return of an old favourite Pan-Asian Udon Meal. When I asked the manager about the ingredients he assured me that it contained no peanuts but could not produce an ingredient list.
We put together a quick meal with their yakosoba noodles and their teriyaki sauce (all she really wanted) some cole slaw mix and canned turkey meat from the local grocery store in the mall.
She pronounced the meal even better!
Here is the reply I recieved today from E.D. Smith the suppliers of the sauce:
