Monkfish Liver

Looking for a sushi place where I could try monkfish liver (ankimo). Can anyone recommend somewhere they've seen it offered? Thanks!

    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.

      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.

        Monkfish liver isn't around right now.. Just wait about a month then check it out at any of the places mentioned... Or you could try Zama

            There is no season in that sense. The weather was hot.. When it cools like this past week it comes around. So it is available basically throughout the year, give or take pending on temp. Not around during the summer.

              him whether he has it, and or to let you know when he gets it. I've had it there' it is a

          I would go to Matt Ito's restaurant in NJ, Fuji. Morimoto's has definitely had it, as has Blue Fin in Plymouth Meeting.
