Looking for a sushi place where I could try monkfish liver (ankimo). Can anyone recommend somewhere they've seen it offered? Thanks!
I would go to Matt Ito's restaurant in NJ, Fuji. Morimoto's has definitely had it, as has Blue Fin in Plymouth Meeting.
usually ankimo tends to be offered in the colder winter months. i'm topping this thread because ankimo showed up (unexpectedly!) in the sensei's appetizer plate at, of all places, yakitori boy. $7.50 if you want just a portion of the monkfish liver itself.
We generally always have ankimo sunomono ready to serve. The only times we don't have it are because we haven't made it yet. You can always call to see if it's present in the restaurant.
