On the hunt for buri belly (Japanese amberjack)
- SauceSupreme Jan 7, 2008 12:03 PM
You sushi fans out there know what I'm talking about. It's winter time, which means that the buri is no longer the lean machine it was in the summer, and its otoro is a delicious and bountiful morsel that rivals that of any fish.
Does anyone have any leads as to which sushi shop has it in stock?
I was lucky enough to be at Sushi Nishi-ya last Friday when there was some amberjack...no skipjack though, darn, bu the amberjack was beautiful!
Listen to Bon Vivant, but don't tell anyone else, about Izayoi...when I've had their amberjack, it has been perfect, petite and delicate cuts of sashimi...mmmm.
