Dosa's makes allergy-friendly Indian dishes doable (and delicious). Their menu clearly labels all dishes that are vegan or free of dairy, egg, gluten and nuts. If you don't see something you like on the specialty menus, almost all of the regular dishes can be made dairy-free or gluten-free.

Spokin Tip: For those with wheat, egg and nut allergies, the chef recommends the Paneer and Peas Uttapam, which is made in a separate area of the kitchen with a rice bran oil.

Foreign Cinema


Foreign Cinema is an iconic experience in the Mission with upscale brunch in the morning, then dinner and a movie when the sun goes down. Because the menu changes every night, be sure to call ahead to make the staff aware of your food allergies and they can easily make accommodations. There is a prix fixe kid's menu that comes with fresh fruit, an entree (which can easily be modified for allergies) and ice cream for dessert with a milk-free sorbet option.
