I've had yellowtail collar at my local sushi restaurant and its very good. I have had it at few other places I really did like it at R23. So chowhounds can you recommend a where I might try for so yummy YT collar??

Thanks in advance

  1. Last place I for sure ordered it was Honda-ya in DTLA, but really any izakaya should have hamachi/yellowtail collar.

      I don't think saucesupreme got to try it last time a few of us hounds met up for dinner at Bar Hayama, but they definitely have it there.

        This is my favorite. Much better than what I tried at Hide Sushi, among the dozen or so places that I've tried it.

      2. Hatfield's has a hemp-crusted yellowtail collar on their tasting menu that is a yummy combination of juicy, salty, and creamy.

        1. If you want to drive up to Palos Verdes Black Bamboo usually has it. Call ahead of course.

          1. They are called Hama Kama in Japanese. It is actually a common dish in a lot of Izakaya places. You can actually buy it yourself in Japanese Supermarkets like Mitsuwa (caution: they may not always have it), and broil it at home, a little miso paste, mirin, and ponzu, and you are on your way to a delicious meal.

            I recommend a couple of places:

            Tama Sushi (try calling first)

            11920 Ventura Blvd
            Studio City, CA 91604
            (818) 760-4585
