Does anyone know the name of the restaurant on Yonge and Clark that serves the live sashimi?

I found it. It's Gonoe Sushi:
5-39 Glen Cameron Rd Thornhill, ON L3T 1P1‎
(905) 597-0176

They serve live fish, live octopus, and live abalone.

I've had it... but not the small ones like you see in the YouTube videos. They took a decent sized octopus, cleaned, gutted and chopped it up in front of us and served right away. The tenticals would still be active and stick to your teeth.

not sure if they do octopus, but ichiban at north york centre does live sashimi as well.
air flown korean flatfish for 4 is $90, and it's a full course thing, with a bunch of sides, tempura, and soup at the end.

Just a slight clarification... I had this in Japan many years ago (not any restauant around Toronto). We also got a platter with live shrimp.

JaBistro downtown (same owner from the Guu empire) does a live 2lb lobster sashimi with your small or large sashimi plate for $25 extra.

Small plate $50 + $25 2lbs. lobster or large plate $100 + $25.

The lobster's head is still moving as you eat the tail. The claws are taken away and cooked in a miso soup. It's really, really good having both lobster claws and miso soup at the same time!!

Side note: JaBistro's sashimi is the freshest sashimi I have ever seen, their wasabi is also grated directly from the root!! Arguably the best sashimi in town! Check out their yelp reviews! (http://www.yelp.ca/biz/jabistro-toronto)

interesting... I'd like to try live octopus. how was it? chewy? sweet?

I wonder if this is something you could try at home.

we've done live geoduck at home, which had amazingly sweet flavour
