Has anyone ever had or heard of a Thai restaurant does not use peanuts or their by-products? Better yet, someone found one in the metropolitan area of New York? I realize that peanuts are a main ingredient in many Thai dishes, but I'm allergic and Thai love and would love to find a place that I could eat and not get horribly wrong. Basically … No, you do not need to go somewhere else. Just go in Thai restaurants and order this "Khao Soy" (Chiang Mai noodles), "Tom Kah Gay" (coconut coconut milk soup), there are peanut-free. I eat all the time. . But make sure before ordering them let you know that you are allergic to peanuts so do not use the stuff they used for food preparation with peanuts.
