Peanut Oil at Chinese Restaurants?

Bostontrav | Dec 24, 2010 05:11 AM

Hi Hounds:

Quick question: We're thinking of taking a family member with nut allergies to a Chinese restaurant over the next couple days (Mary Chung was on the list, among others).

Does anyone happen to know if these restaurants tend to use peanut oil or other nut oils for general frying (dumplings, egg rolls, etc). Obviously the family member will stay away from sesame chicken and dan dan noodles and the like, and I know we can ask the server when we are seated, but thought some inside info might save us a trip if we have to rule that restaurant out. Thanks a bunch!
