Okay, I must be getting jaded. I think I’m starting to experience twisted pleasure when I destroy a restaurant owner’s perception that they are soy free.
A week or so ago, we went to a Greek fast food-ish restaurant. I asked the owner if they had an allergen list as my kids were allergic to soy. He proudly stated that there was no soy in their restaurant at all.
Cue sarcastic smirking and let the enlightenment begin!
After explaining some of the common locations for hidden soy, I started having them check some of their ingredients. Lo and behold, their gyro meat, pita bread, hummus, and hot dogs all had soy in them. So the kids got Arby’s from across the street, and restaurant owner got an education in soy.
