Sashimi Grade Chu-Toro (Medium Fatty Tuna) (0.5 lb)
Chu-Toro is the perfect blend of fatty belly and meaty red tuna. Because the chu-toro cut straddles both, it provides both a meaty and a fatty texture for a real celebration in your mouth! We source this fish from the same supplier that serves some of the most popular sushi spots in New York, including Osakana, an East Williamsburg favorite.
Did you know the bright red color we associate with tuna often means it has been treated with carbon dioxide to maintain its color? While it is completely safe for consumption, we choose to carry fresh tuna that has not been treated with carbon monoxide, which means this toro can range from brownish-red to light pink, all delicious and safe to eat.
This sashimi-grade fish is sourced fresh, and frozen on-site by our suppliers to ensure maximum freshness. Once defrosted, we recommend consuming it within 3 days for the best taste, or storing it in your freezer for up to 1 week.
