Any recommendations for a 'safe' restaurant to eat at for my son who is allergic to peanuts/nuts in the old part of Quebec City? :lol:

My son travelled there with his Grade 8 class (that was a nerve-wracking experience for my husband and I) and while the class ate in French restaurants, my son and a trusted teacher ate at McDonald's :( . My son has eaten at McD's many times safely (but he still always asks when he gets to the counter).

McDonalds would be my choice too. They are very responsible.

Besides McDonald's - does anyone know of any restos in Quebec City or Beaupré (or in between) that are particularly allergy aware? We will be visiting my inlaws near the end of August and it would be nice to go out somewhere a few notches above McDs...

(My father-in-law likes expensive steakhouses, to give you an idea of the price range!)

There is this restaurant in the Old City:

http://www.lechebabines.com/

They are completely nuts and peanut free, and even offer certain gluten-free foods!

They are very "allergy-aware", and when I asked them, they said if we called in advanced, they could 'probably' deal with other allergies as well...

And it's definitely not fast food! :)

How about St. Huberts?

This is similar to Swiss Chalet in Ontario and from what I understand they are peanut/nut safe.

Thanks - it's not quite what my father-in-law would aim for, but it would do in a pinch for just the four of us, maybe. I looked at their menu online and there is not one kid meal without chicken, which my oldest is allergic to.

The thing I don't like about St-Hubert is that they don't list their ingredients online anywhere. You have to go into the restaurant to see the big binders... and when you have hungry kids, it's not that fun to have to do that, and then to maybe turn around and leave because nothing is suitable. I guess I should do some advance research, just in case.

I did contact them to see if they had any ingredients online, and they replied that "for my convenience" they have the binders available in each restaurant for me to read... I replied that it really wasn't convenient!

But thank you again for the suggestion. :)
