The Happy Sumo
| The Happy Sumo
| Location Information
The Happy Sumo is a Japanese restaurant. Among the restaurant's menu offerings are all kinds of sushi, including fugu, which can be fatally poisonous if it is not properly prepared.
The Master Sushi Chef appears to be the only person at the restaurant qualified to prepare fugu. When Homer Simpson ordered fugu while the Master Sushi Chef was away from the kitchen, Toshiro was left to prepare the fugu on his own, and was very fortunate not to kill Homer. The restaurant prints a map to the hospital on the backs of its menus, evidently to be prepared in the event of a possible poisoning, such as Homer's.
The Simpsons eat at The Happy Sumo not long after it opens when Lisa convinces everyone to try the new restaurant (and convinces Homer to try sushi). They also eat there when Sideshow Bob is released from prison and takes Selma (with whom he was corresponding while still incarcerated) and the family out to dinner.
