A friend of mine is a newbie traveller and has extreme allergic reactions to gluten, dairy and soy; she will be touring the US in November. How good are restaurants and cafes at catering to allergies?
Does anyone have any good advice for someone travelling with extreme food allergies?
Most places will be good. Usually you can find all different options in larger cities but it does take some questioning and some research. Smaller a cities might have different options but not like the larger ones. You just need to let the restaurant know of these allergies prior to ordering and often times they can make it differently to accommodate you. Hope this helps. Safe travels! over 5 years ago
