Hello. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of an upcoming trip back to Canada from where I currently live in Japan, bringing with me my 2 year old P/A son. If there is anyone from the Ottawa area who can recommend safe places to eat out while we are there, that would really help me. We will also be visiting Niagara Falls for a couple of days and London, Ontario. As much as possible, I hope to eat in and plan to bring food I know is safe and that my son likes from Japan to feed him in case we end up some place I am not sure is safe for him to eat. I feel REALLY nervous about eating in restaurants (NEVER do here) but I know there is more awareness in Canada than Japan about food allergies in general, especially peanut and that we should be ok. Thanks in advance for your advice!

ottawa has a nut-free bakery. It is delicious! It is called the Cake Shop http://www.thebestcakeshop.com/page/page/1885720.htm.
LoneStar (a mexican chain) does not use any peanuts. There are a number of locations around Ottawa. http://www.lonestartexasgrill.com/
I have also been to Ishina, and Indian restaurant. The owner is ridiculous nice, and very adamament that they do not use peanuts! (delicious as well).

Montana's was safe for my son to eat at. They do have nuts for something but they are in a package only added to the product that they are for. So they don't touch anything but the bow they are going in. Like McDonalds and their nuts for Sundays.
