Bar food is always problematic for me – most of it is deep fried, so for those with wheat allergies, off limits. Well, that’s all a thing of the past. Wilde Bar and Restaurant’s chef Alan Katz brings an allergen free menu to Lakeview and that includes Kinnikinnick Hamburger Buns which are free of wheat, dairy, soy and nuts. (Ingredients: Water, White Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, Whole Eggs, Sugar, Yeast, Sunflower and/or Canola Oil), Dextrose, Poly Dextrose, Pea Protein, Sodium Carboxy Methylcellulose, Salt, Vitamin Blend(Thiamine, Vitamin B2, Niacin, Folic Acid, Iron).
I went to Wilde last week with my husband Mark and just loved being able to enjoy the bar scene again. The gluten free menu covers it all; from appetizers including artichoke cheddar dip and buffalo hot wings to delectable burgers like the Wilde burger (that’s what I had minus the cheese). All I can say is YUM, carmelized onions, just a favorite of mine! I spoke with the manager Pat Rogers, and he is happy to accommodate special needs diets, “We strive to please all our guests, including those that can’t eat wheat, dairy or any other restriction, if you have additional restrictions, call us in advance so we can plan for your visit.”
Please note: in the picture of my burger you will see French fries; I had to skip the fries, as they do not use a dedicated fryer. Luckily, Mark was able to take them off my hands…. Enjoy!
