Mimi’s Italian Foods & Deli

Restaurant Visit

Unfortunately most of what Mimi’s serves contains soy. Fortunately, the staff at Mimi’s is extremely accommodating and helpful when trying to avoid soy.

Mimi’s does not cook with soybean oil, but they do “cool” all of their pasta with soybean oil. We were told that if we just call ahead, they will cook up a fresh batch of pasta without soybean oil. The ravioli contains soy and is made elsewhere, so it can not be prepared without soy.

They fry in soybean oil and all of their bread items have soy in it.

What we order:

  • Pasta (not cooled with soybean oil) with meat sauce
  • Our Nickles One Buns to eat with the pasta
  • Salad, but watch the dressings
  • Stuffed pepper soup

With our Nickles One Buns, our son could have most of the sandwiches.

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.
