Tuna, Akami (Tuna Red Meat あかみ) Facts

I thought the grade was far above Akami and wondered if they gave Chu-toro instead. It was excellent and I can’t wait to repeat the order. The other items, ikura, amaebi were also of a high standard. The only ‘standard’ item was the hotate which couldn’t be faulted but simply didn’t shine in comparison to the rest. All in, I felt the quality was better than Zairyo.
