A note about serious food allergies

Treat yourself to tender noodles lightly dressed in a savory miso-sesame dressing, surrounded by warm mushrooms sautéed in garlic sesame oil, crisp red peppers, and watermelon radish. Watermelon radish? Oh, no big deal, it's only the coolest radish on the planet (with a pink and magenta color that mimics sliced watermelon) and a perfectly peppery flavor that makes this meal truly special.
