China Pasta House

Location: Tucson, Arizona

“Delicious food and great price! The staff is very understanding and is family run, so it just feels like I’m eating food that has been made with care and love. The staff is helpful with ingredients and dishes and their menu lays out most ingredients in their dishes as well. Only thing to watch out for is that there is a slight language barrier with certain things (it helps that I speak some Mandarin), but others in the restaurant are very helpful and can assist you in translating :)”

Tai San Restaurant

Location: Fresno, California

“I used to order from here all the time back in college! I would get the chicken fried rice, pork buns, and wonton soup (the no-shellfish one). Since my college days I have developed a pea allergy, so I cannot speak for how safe fried rice would be anymore. However, I would note my nut allergy while ordering and was always safe!”

One of my favorite allergy-friendly places ever (and that's saying something!)"
