Default Travel with allergy in Europe

Are you familiar with any specific stores or restaurants
in Munich that would cater to food allergies?


Reply from someone who lives there with food intolerances:

: Here is a good site;

: https://www.isar-mami.de/allergie-re...i-histaminarm/

: Eier-frei, Nuss-frei and Erdnuss- frei are the vital terms for her.
: But there are always people round in Munich who speak English.

: I go to the Basic restaurants a lot, the food is very tasty.

if the problems are just with nuts and eggs, you shouldn't
need to buy any special "free from" products.
The owner of an Indian restaurant in Easingwold caused the death
of a customer by substituting ground peanuts for ground almonds.
This was after he almost killed another customer and had been
warned by trading standards. The owner is now serving a six year
prison sentence.


Indian restaurants are not common in Munich.


Nor in Easingwold. :-)

The message I am trying to give is that you can't totally rely on what's
on the
menu, even when it is in English


Especially when in the Vegetarian section

the practice of sprinkling ham on the top of a (claimed) vegetarian salad or
pizza is not uncommon.

the term Vegetarian in German restaurants appears to mean "mainly
Vegetarian", not "complete meat free"

In a restaurant in Los Arcos, Navarra, España, one page of the menu has
four sandwiches.
Ham
Ham & Cheese
Ham, Cheese, Bacon
Ham, Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce

I forget three names, but the fourth is "Vegetarian." Presumably a
translation error. (The English menu for semi-educated Americans)

We need to avoid eggs and nuts and peanuts.
Do you know if the restaurants there are aware of allergies?


In large cities you won't have a problem (and you will be able
buy specialist foods from shops if you need them). Small towns
and villages are more of a lottery.


German restaurant menus will list allergi information in footnotes (look
for small numbers next to the dishes). It's so pervasive that I believe
it's mandatory.

It will help a lot if you can talk about the problem in German.


The words are similar in German, so really shouldn't be a problem.
