Where To Find A Healthy & Allergy Friendly Restaurant Around The World 2022



Generally, all of our blog posts contain suggestions of places you can find either healthy or allergy friendly food, but we wanted to put everything together in one place to make it easier to search just for a healthy or allergy friendly restaurant in whatever destination you’re visiting.

Below you’ll find dropdowns of specific destinations separated by country. The cities correspond with posts we’ve written and we will continue adding more as we go. Keep checking back for an updated list.


Allergy Key



GFO ~ Gluten Free Options

DFO ~ Dairy Free Options

SFO ~ Soy Free Options

VO ~ Vegan Options

VegO ~ Vegetarian Options

NFO ~ Nut Free Options

PFO ~ Peanut Free Options


*Many of these restaurants are not dedicated allergy free, but have options to make things allergy friendly. Always be sure to double check with specific restaurants and let them know about your allergies. Restaurants that offer organic generally specify “when possible” and some may only have certain organic items (not the whole menu).

Florida: Key West

Being over 3 hours away from the closest major city (Miami), Key West is not really overflowing with healthy and allergy friendly restaurants.

However, our favorite restaurant in Key West is the Italian restaurant Mangia Mangia, that makes their own gluten free pasta. Because of all our other allergies, they kind of custom made a few dishes for us and everything was super delicious.

Florida: Orlando – Disney + Disney Springs

For our full Disney World Post click here. For our full Disney Springs Post click here.

Both Disney World and Disney Springs are full of allergy friendly options. But with so many choices we felt a little overwhelmed trying to make a decision.

For Disney World, we chose Jungle Navigation and very much recommend this allergy friendly restaurant. After explaining our allergies to the waiter, he brought the chef out to our table to help us. He was so nice and helpful and once we ordered, he went straight back to the kitchen to make our food himself.

We were not aware that you have to book a reservation well in advance to the more popular restaurants (there is a chance you can get on the waitlist the day of but definitely not a guarantee), so make sure you plan ahead.




At Disney Springs, we chose our restaurant based on the Irish Show with music and dancing, but it ended up being the best allergy friendly option in Disney Springs.

The best restaurant to visit for authentic Irish food, unique and exciting entertainment, and very accommodating for those with food allergies is the restaurant Raglan Road. Our food was delicious and it was great to have a show while eating dinner.

Florida: Orlando – Universal Studios

For our full Universal Post click here. For our full Halloween HN Post click here.

Universal does offer a few gluten free, dairy free, and other allergy friendly options but if you don’t want to sit down at a restaurant, you can bring a cooler into the park and keep it in a locker or keep the cooler in your parked car and go in and out of the park.

Universal’s website isn’t super helpful to plan out all allergy friendly food options but some do list Gluten Free, Vegan, or Vegetarian options. We tried calling guest services ahead of time to plan out our day but they weren’t able (or willing) to help us. This is why we chose to bring our own food and play it safe, and it may be a better option for others as well.

During Halloween Horror Nights, they have a number of food trucks around the park and one with arepas that had gluten free and vegetarian options. We got two of these arepas with small modifications (they only allowed modifications if it was for an allergy) and they were quite delicious.

  • Gluten Free (Spanish- Sin Gluten): luckily there are a lot of naturally gluten free things in the Mexican Cuisine. Definitely be sure to ask about ingredients in sauces (like mole or enchilada sauce) because they do put flour in some. There are a few gluten free bakeries around the city but most restaurants don’t carry items like gluten free bread or other gluten free baked good items.

  • Dairy Free (Spanish- Sin Lácteos): generally you can tell if something is going to have dairy in it (if the menu item lists queso, crema, leche, etc). Some sauces (like enchiladas verdes) may use dairy and not necessarily list it, so be sure to ask. Most regular restaurants do not have vegan cheese or sauce options available to switch out with the regular.

  • Vegan or Vegetarian (Spanish- Vegana, Vegetariana): Meat is pretty heavily consumed in Mexico so not a ton of regular restaurants will have many vegan or vegetarian options on the menu. Some of the nicer restaurants are more likely to have a dish or two that is vegan, and there are a few places around the city that are entirely Vegan and Vegetarian.

*Remember not to drink anything with ice 🧊, they usually chill their drinks and water so you can still get drinks cold. Also it’s a good idea to stay away from things like salads 🥗 or anything that uses lettuce because it gets washed in the water which can upset (or worse 🤢) your stomach. Better to be safe than sorry!

Puebla / Cholula

For our full Cholula Post click here.

Cholula is just outside of Puebla and is most famous for the Great Pyramid archaeological site. There aren’t any dedicated allergy friendly restaurants around here so it’s best to bring snacks for your visit, and get something to eat at an allergy friendly restaurant in Puebla.

In Puebla, you might want to try the towns famous Puebla Mole (pronounced Mo-lay). It is a Mexican marinade or sauce made with chocolate and usually poured over chicken. At least in the US, a lot of restaurants put flour in their mole so make sure to ask if it is “sin gluten: no harina, no pan, no trigo”.

When we visited Puebla, we ate at Sabor a Puebla in the historic city center. We asked our very nice waiter about the food and our allergies, and we had a really great meal. A few of the other options we saw, were El Rincón de Tacotlan (a vegan restaurant) and El Mural de los Poblanos (vegetarian and dairy free items).

If you don’t speak much Spanish, you can use (or show) these phrases at restaurants to ask about their food:

– Tienes comida sin gluten?
(do you have gluten free food?)

– Tienes comida vegana o vegetariana?
(do you have vegan or vegetarian food?)

– Tengo alergias a… gluten, lácteos, soya, nueces, maní, carne, huevos
(I have allergies to… gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, peanuts, meat, eggs, etc.)

– Que tipo de aceite usas?
(what type of oil do you use?)

Oils ~ Girasol (sunflower), Oliva (olive), Coco (coconut), Soya (soy), Ajonjolí (sesame), Maní (peanut), Maíz (corn)
