Kabab & Curry Fine Indian Cuisine

We haven’t been able to get the kids here yet, but in talking with the staff and the owner of Kabab & Curry, we’re really hoping to get them here, soon.

The owner and staff tell us that they use very little, if any, soy in their cooking. The best part is that they are willing to prepare pretty much anything soy-free and they are very fluent in english, so I feel that they are fully understanding what we’re trying to avoid.

We’ll report what the kids ate, if we actually get the kids here.

I'm trying to track allergen information for every restaurant that we eat at. With my son's soy allergy, each time we eat at a restaurant, it can take up to 30 minutes to figure out what he can eat. Especially since most restaurants don't accurately represent their usage of soy.

We're tracking what soy free (including soybean oil free) foods our son can eat at all restaurants we go to. If you've got a soy allergy in your family and have any information you can share, please contact us.

Max and Erma’s

Max and Erma’s menu is fairly limited as far as soy-free fare, but they more than make up for it by their willingness to prepare custom dishes for our kids. Our waitress Gabrielle was more than willing to make regular trips back to the kitchen to check on ingredients for us.

They do fry in soybean oil (no surprise there), so that eliminates all of the fried food. Kudos to Max and Erma’s for actually considering that soybean oil is indeed made out of soybeans. Their allergen list actually lists out each form of soy that any (unfortunately most) of their food contains. In case they change things, here’s a snapshot of Max and Erma’s Allergen list (active link to their site below). All restaurants should be held to the standard that Max and Erma’s uses for this list.

A quick look at the kids menu pretty much gets narrowed down to the grilled chicken breast and the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Fortunately they have a number of obvious, or easily adjusted side items: applesauce, fruit salad, steamed broccoli, fresh seasonal vegetables, sauteed baby green beans, freshly grilled asparagus.

Our kids were less enthusiastic about the grilled chicken (that’s the next most common food they get after hamburgers and hot dogs) but, boy, were they excited when the very helpful manager, Zack, mentioned shrimp. We were able to get shrimp skewer meal with one side for only one dollar more than the normal kids meal.

We’re here on a Wednesday, and that means free chocolate chip cookies — unless, of course, you’re allergic to soy, and then the cookies are off limits. Helpful manager Zack to the rescue again, he offered our kids a trip to the sundae bathtub bar. Needless to say our kids are ecstatic.

On the sundae bar, the ice cream, strawberry sauce and caramel sauce is soy free. Zack brought the Hershey’s chocolate sauce (normally just used for the milkshakes) from the kitchen. He managed to rustle up some chewy sweet tarts, as the sprinkles. Oreos, nuts, M&M, and Butterfinger pieces were obviously off limits.

If every Max and Erma’s is as accommodating as this one at Belden Village area in Canton, then rush to your nearest Max and Erma’s for soy-free dining!

Kennedy’s BBQ

All of the meats here are soy free. So is the chilli, bean soup, and relish.

They also offer Troyer’s pies. The pumpkin pie is soy free. The apple pie is not.

The barbecue sauce is Sweet Baby Ray’s and is soy free.

The milkshakes (made with Taggart’s ice cream) are soy free.

Baja Pizzafish

Well, things seem real hopeful to start with. The pizza dough is not made with soybean oil. They create the pizza dough and grill the meat with olive oil. They do fry in soybean oil so tortilla chips are out. Also the flour tortillas have soy in them.

Patrick, the extremely helpful manager said that as long as we avoided the grilled mushrooms and grilled onions (which are grilled in margarine) we should be fine.

We were all happy about finding another pizza place that our son could eat at (so far it’s only Bob’s Pizza, until it all came crashing down. The aforementioned grilled onions are one of the ingredients in their pizza sauce. That left us with a garlic pesto sauce that has pine nuts, which then gets us into other sketchy territory due to his nut allergies.

Fortunately, the aforementioned extremely helpful manager came to the rescue and he is in the midst of whipping up some special reserve pizza sauce without the aforementioned grilled onions. What a dude! 🙂

So, we’re looking at a pizza with the special sauce, and, hurray, he can have the guacamole. (We’ve got to bring our own chips — fortunately, we’ve got pretzels in the van, so he’ll be able to partake of the guacamole tonight).

Another minor snag. All of their meats are grilled in a seasoning that has soy lecithin in it. Patrick says to just let them know when we order to not use that seasoning. With that little alteration, all of the meats and also all of the cheeses and are okay for them to eat.

Woody’s Root Beer Stand

Woody’s fries in canola oil, so the fries are ok! That’s the second place he can eat fries.

Allof the other fried food has soy in the batter, so no onion rings, mushrooms, or whatnot.

He usually gets a hot dog (no bun), french fries, and a small rootbeer.
