Hello Fellow Travelers:
This coming March we are heading to Europe and spending a few days in Budapest with our son. He has allergies to tree nuts/peanuts/coconuts. I believe that since Hungary is part of the EU, menus should list the allergens similar to other EU places we've been.
But, I wanted to see if there are any foods that you are aware of that contain these ingredients that wouldn't be readily apparent? Maybe something I haven't discovered in my looking around on the Internet.
For instance in Spain, Romesco sauce contains walnuts, pine nuts, and/or hazelnuts. But if you were to look just at the sauce, it appears to just be tomato sauce. (I knew what it was because I had researched before we left for Spain.)
I've researched foods in Budapest/Hungary and am certain that desserts will be tough for him - but he's used to that from our travels to other places. He knows that he can't do crepes in Paris because there is too much Nutella floating around. He knows that tea in London means he can't eat the Battenberg cake. Over the last 10 years of travel with him, he's enjoyed just plain chocolate bars in so many locations. So this allergy situation and travel isn't new to us.
BUT Budapest and Hungary are new to us so I wanted to pick the brains of people who have experience with Budapest/Hungary.
And yes, before you ask, I have heard about Amy May Shead and what happened to her in Budapest. It's very sad...
