Looking for Tuna Steak Sandwich

I was wondering if anyone knew of a place in Southern California that makes a Tuna Steak Sandwich or Ahi Tuna.

I once had a great Tuna Steak Sandwich in Hong Kong a few years ago. . . You could say that I've had a bit of a craving.

  1. Could you explain what the sandwich is like? The name is pretty ambiguous. I do know of a place that serves a mean seared ahi tuna sandwich. Mo's in Burbank does a great version for lunch...seared ahi tuna with carmelized onions, a garlic and caper aioli, tomatoes, and lettuce on grilled sourdough.

      Another good seared ahi sandwich is at The Library Alehouse in Santa Monica on main street.
      Great beers too.

        +1 on the Library Alehouse's ahi. My SO orders it every time and if I could ever tear myself from the turkeyburger, I'd get it too.

    2. nook makes a pretty good grilled albacore sandwich with apple-fig chutney, pickled red onions, avocado, and sprouts

        Yes. I really like this sandwich. I think it's only offered during lunch hours.

      2. Breadbar made a great one in Century City.

        1. Although I personally prefer their burger with smoked short rib in it, Beachwood BBQ does a good Ahi Tuna Sandwich. They also have an excellent selection of craft beers on tap!

          1. Try Central Park. You can get it with avocado if you want (and I do).
