Never make false claims of a food allergy to justify altering the ingredients of a dish. If garlic gives you gas, for example, that should not be construed as an allergy. Most servers can detect you’re lying when you spontaneously become gluten intolerant after we refuse to make a substitution, so come correct. Staff in restaurants take food allergies very seriously, so should you.
can you detect a phony caviar allergy when you see one?
