  1. What part of a kebab would have tree nuts in it? I think you'd be fine anywhere.

    1. The Al-Shami was recommended to me on egullet as a decent Lebanese - they'll do kebabs. It's an "also recommended" in the Good Food Guide

        WIth a nut allergy, the cross contamination issue is ever-present. Didn't know if some kebab vans also sold items containing nuts? I haven't been to england in 20 years (WOW!). Just trying to learn as much as i can before we head out to england! I guess there is always mcdonalds and subway but i don't want to eat those foods there even though i know the ingredients since they are all available online and clearly spell out what does and doesn't contain nuts. thanks!!

          As we've pointed out on your other thread, many places buy in much of their ingredients from industrial wholesalers and, therefore, cannot (or will not) guarantee that there is no cross-contamination. Personally, I would never buy a kebab from a kebab van (but that's nothing to do with nuts, it's about quality - I have the same policy towards Mcdonalds and Subway - I'm fussy about what I put in my mouth).

          I have a sense that we have considerably fewer instances of allergies, generally, here in Europe than appears to be the case in America. I wonder if that's why you're finding so little information.
