8 Major Food Allergies & Horizontal Work Surface
This page lists the best menu items to order if you suffer from any of the 8 major food allergies. We take great care in preparing your food, but we have a horizontal work surface system. This means that plates may pass through different stations to get completed. This can lead to unexpected cross contamination by allergens. We would love to be your restaurant today, but if you have severe allergic reactions to gluten (wheat), fish, crustacean shellfish, soy, tree nuts or peanuts, we think it’s best to not eat at Aqui.

About Our Vegetarian and Vegan Items
We take great care in preparing your vegetarian and vegan items, but we have a horizontal work surface system. This means plates will pass through different stations to be completed. This can lead to possible cross contamination with animal proteins. Our kitchens only have a single fryer which is used to crisp both vegetarian/vegan items and non-vegetarian/vegan items. We understand if the information noted will give you pause about enjoying our vegetarian and vegan food at Aqui. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to be your kitchen.
