Sushi-grade tuna in White Plains/ Westchester

petezee Sep 15, 2006 07:54 PM

Looking for dependable fish for sashimi/ tar-tar. The stand-by used to be the flash-frozen sushi tuna at Whole Foods, but I went last week and they had no idea what I was talking about. They claimed their 'fresh' tuna was not suitable for sushi.

Except for the asian supermarket on Mamaroneck and Bloomingdale Rd. ($35.00/lb and it's not even toro!) does anyone know where I can find flash-frozen sushi grade tuna or extremely fresh, dependable sushi tuna?

    Meiji-Ya (sp) on Central Ave just a few stores north of Hartsdale Ave and just south of Cafe Meze. They are a Japanese grocery and have many types of sashimi grade fish. Very, very good quality.

      I think I've stopped in there- next to a sushi store, right?-same problem as the Mamaroneck Ave grocery, though- $35 or so a pound, if I remember.

          Have you tried it a lot? I've been to the store but I've been a little hesitant about the tuna.

            I shop at Kam Sen a lot but their fish is most definately not sashimi grade.
