Rami's & allergies.

usually a big fan of rami's despite the expense. today we were tasked to bring rami's to a friend's house with a peanut allergy. we asked the guys at the restaurant whether or not they uses peanuts/peanut oil to fry the falafel and the entire group had no idea! so surprising for a kosher place (eg one that is sensitive to dietary restrictions). it really is just surprising that in this day and age that a restaurant would not have their entire staff trained on what items contain popular allergens.

  1. Sounds like they are not in compliance with Massachusetts regulations:

    1. Pretty common, in my experience. DH has a soy allergy and we always ask what oil they fry in and they rarely know or care to even look at the jug label to tell us.

      1. State law requires them to know.
