Single item done well? Traveling with kids with food allergies

Tumkers | Dec 6, 201109:24 AM

I am trying to come up with a strategy for eating in Paris with my two children who have a) peanut and shellfish allergy and b) tree nut and sesame allergy.

We have rented an apartment (near St Germain Des Pres Metro) so I can cook much of the time, but would like to find a few places where we might be able to eat safely without whipping out the epi pens and benadryl and calling for an ambulance due to either my poor French or the restaurants lack of knowledge about food allergy.

A new strategy I have thought might work is finding restaurants that serve one thing (that is devoid of nuts, peanuts shellfish and sesame) Would a couscous shop be a good choice? Crepes?

I am looking for the French equivalent of the taco truck I suppose. Anyone else dealt with food allergies in Paris? Any other suggestions out there for getting a feel for French cuisine without ... killing the kids?
