    Maybe these phrases will help you in a restaurant: "私はゴマアレルギーを持っています." - watashi wa goma arerugi wo mottei imasu - I have a 'sesame' allergy. "この商品にゴマまたは、ゴマのペーストはつかわれていますか?" - kono shouhin ni goma mata wa goma no paste wa tsukawareteimasu ka? - Does this product use sesame or sesame paste? Apologies if you already knew the Japanese.

    Do you read Japanese? There are guides you can buy in Japanese for Tokyo that list restaurants that are safe for each type of allergen.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.

Hi everyone! I am looking for an online job (preferably part time) that is home based since I'm a full time mom and I really can't commit to any full time jobs right now.
