    My Trader Joe's actually carries sashimi grade Ahi that's not bad.

      The Japanese markets sell ahi tuna. Try Mitsuwa. They have stores in Costa Mesa and Torrance. Below is the Costa Mesa store. They also have a website

      665 Paularino Ave.,
      Costa Mesa, CA 92626
      TEL: (714) 557-6699

        Fresh sashimi grade tuna can be purchased at Marukai and Mitsuwa Stores in both LA and Orange Counties. Korean markets like Freshia and Hannam also carry sashimi already sliced and packaged. Some 99 Ranch Markets will carry limited tuna but as a whole, Chinese do not prepare raw fish like the Japanese.
