We are planning a short trip to Toronto. Has anyone had a good experience with a restaurant in the downtown area. We have allergies to peanuts and hazelnuts but avoid contact with all nut products.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

We have had good luck with Swiss Chalet (casual) and Il Fornello (mid-range).

Thank you for the suggestions Fiona! I liked the looks of Il Fornello and have sent them an email.

Other restaurants that have been suggested are the KitKat on King Street,which I called.They appeared willing to accomodate. I was given the telephone number of their bakery (Rivera) which I have yet to call. Has anyone with peanut/nut allergies any experience there?

The other restaurant suggested to me by staff at the hotel where we plan to stay was Alice Fazooli's. The manager said they have no peanuts but use peacans in some salads. Has anyone any experience there either?

I have also checked the Eaton Centre and have yet to find someplace other than McDonald's which may be safe.
Any comments on these or others are appreciated.

Hey there. I really like Duffs Wings. Their wings are peanut free and the owners are pretty knowledgeable about allergies (one of their family member's is allergic to nuts). There are other menu options as well. The only thing you should avoid is the honey garlic wings since the owner told me they have a may contain on the package. However, I have never had an issue there.

best wings in the city, bar none.

I notice the Eaton Centre has a Made in Japan. This is one of the few place that we eat at.
Bring lots of wipes if you eat at the food court or get the food as take out.

Thank you so much for these suggestions. We are packing our home baking and lunch for the flight in but I am trying to have safe options for the stay and the trip home.

What is a good choice at Made In Japan? I am not familiar with it. Yes wipes are standard equipment. Thanks for the reminder.

Does anyone know of a safe food source for those with peanut allergy at Pearson Airport departures?

Has anyone eaten at Frank's at the Art Gallery?

Made in Japan is prepared in front of you. It is mainly a vegetable mixture (bean sprouts, carrot, broccolli, cabbage and green peppers) + your choice of meat (shrimp, chicken, beef or tofu)+ option of mushrooms + teryaki sauce (bottle at front so you can check the ingredients) served over rice (white or brown) or yakosoba noodles (buckwheat).
