Thank goodness for EG.
This information MUST be shared so it never happens again!
Long story short -
After phoning ahead to let them know one of our diners was anaphylactic to peanuts and being reassured they do not use them, we headed out to this cheap sushi place for a quick bite.
They first brought out some salad, and after again, confirming with 3 different staff members, they said they make everything in house, and do NOT use peanuts - -
3 bites of salad later, said party's lips start to go numb, as does her tongue - at which point we dial 911 and administer her Epi Pen.
I ask to see this jar of sesame paste - second ingredient....peanuts.
Thank god she is still alive -
Please, I urge you to tell friends and family, stay AWAY from Yama sushi at Yonge and Sheppard (assuming I don't get them shut down in the mean time!)
