Can anyone recommend some restaurants that would be able to accomodate a severe peanut allergy in Vancouver?

Cactus Clubs - always a safe bet for us. They are VERY diligent.

Milestone's was great with our kids when we were there in 2003 - and you can see what we are dealing with in my signature. I have also heard good things about the Milestone's in Ottawa in the past little while.

I would highly recommend them.

We second the Cactus Club recommendation. Earl's is good, too. Ouisi Bistro on Granville provides an allergen chart.

Two cheaper options are Moderne Burger (currently closed for expansion) on West Broadway and Sympatico Greek restaurant on Fourth Avenue, both in Kitsilano.

We go to sushi restaurants a lot here and have never had a problem with peanuts, although we find the stray sesame seed on our sesame-free veggie maki. And of course, we can't get dipping sauces, tofu or teriyaki because of the soy.

We ate at Earl's in Penticton BC in 2003 and also had a very positive and allergy-aware experience there. My youngest stuffed himself on filet mignon, and he was not quite 3 at the time!!

I'd forgotten the name of the resto but when I saw ahn's post it rang a bell.

They too have a website: http://www.earls.ca/index.asp

I'm in Victoria, but I thought I would let you know the chains we have been to that have worked out fine:
- Boston Pizza
- White Spot
- Swiss Chalet
Of course we mention our son's allergy every time.

We used to have ABC Country Restaurant on our list, but because of their change of menu where they have salads with peanuts sprinkled on top, I think we will have to strike them off now. (see our "Parenting" post above.) :(

Have fun in Vancouver! It is a lovely city.

I second the Boston Pizza motion! They write down your allergies the second you mention them and when they bring the food they confirm that different utensils were used and such. Also Red Robbins I've found are really good. Also I've been to the Old Spaghetti Factory in Gasstown a few times and have been very impressed with their service (not just that location, but in Edmonton too). A manager actually comes out and talks to you and makes sure that you're meal is prepared safely.
Hope this helps

Caroline
