Spring Rolls

My two recent visits to Spring Rolls has really highlighted the problems with dining out. I visited the location at 693 Yonge Street a few weeks ago and had what I thought was a good experience. The server spoke with kitchen staff and told me that there were lots of things I could eat. I chose Pad Thai.

More recently, I dined at the new Atrium on Bay location. This time, I was told that almost everything was off limits. There is wheat in the curry, Pad Thai, anything with szechuan sauce or tomato paste, and I was even told that the rice noodles may contain wheat. I guess the good news is that they happily modified a dish and used garlic sauce instead of the standard sauce. What a difference a few blocks make.
