BC, Kelowna – Poppadoms


Thanks to Terri, a Go Dairy Free viewer, for emailing in this recommendation:

"I have a suggestion of a restaurant to add to your dining out list.  I live in Kelowna, British Columbia.  We have a new restaurant called Poppadoms (Indian food).  I asked the waitress which dishes contained no yoghurt or ghee, and she brought me a special version of the menu that has all items highlighted that are suitable, or can be modified by the chef to be suitable, for people with lactose intolerance.  They have similar menus for vegetarians and those with celiac disease.

It was so nice to place my order confidently, and with no inconvenience to anyone else.  I hope this becomes a trend!"

They don't post the special diet menus online (though you can see their full menu there), but it is obvious from the menu notes that this restaurant is there to help! They also note which items may contain nuts for those with nut allergies. 

Location: 118 – 948 McCurdy Road (off hwy 97), Kelowna, BC
