Tuna Tuesday at TOMO: A Michelin Guide Recommendation
TOMO is an upscale Japanese restaurant characterized by serving every day, at every dinner table, on every plate, authentic Japanese cuisine using only the finest ingredients available.
Attention to detail is what prevails in every TOMO experience, and that’s why the protagonist of those special Tuesdays is not just any Pacific bluefin tuna but one sustainably raised on the island of Kyushu, Japan.
No other research institute has been able to breed bluefin tuna from the egg. They have already bred 3 generations. This now famous tuna is called Kindai Maguro, and this unique fish in itself is the one you can enjoy on a Tuesday in TOMO. Clearly, you don’t become one of the Michelin restaurants just like that.
It’s a reality that life gives us few guarantees and certainties, but if there is one thing we can be sure of, it’s that at TOMO we will only find gastronomic experiences to remember.
Sustainable Bluefin Tuna: The Secrets Behind this Culinary Marvel
The star of Tuna Tuesday is none other than bluefin tuna. Bluefins are widely regarded as the kings of the Tuna family, and rightfully so. Known for its rich flavor and succulent texture, this delicacy is a cornerstone of Japanese cuisine. Its versatility allows chefs to showcase its flavors in various forms, from the simplicity of sashimi to the complexity of sushi rolls.
Harvested from the pristine waters of the Pacific, this bluefin tuna undergoes a meticulous process that respects the integrity of the fish and ensures its premium quality. Such commitment to excellence contributes to the bluefin tuna’s reputation as a culinary gem, sought after by discerning diners worldwide.
Direct from the island of Kyushu and thanks to the research of Kinki University on tuna farming, the bluefin tuna you’ll taste at TOMO comes from sustainable sourcing practices to ensure not only environmental sustainability but the highest quality in the seafood market.
Moreover, precisely because of their extraordinary qualities, southern and Atlantic bluefin tuna have been overfished to the point of being critically endangered. That is why, to enjoy a good sashimi, today more than ever, sustainably farmed bluefin tuna is a precious delicacy to be cherished. And TOMO, as well as in every detail and secret of Japanese cuisine, does not fail to be aware of this.
Sake Pairing: Enhance the Tuna Experience
To truly complete your Tuna Tuesday experience, sake pairing can not be missed. TOMO’s Japanese menu offers an array of the best sake in Atlanta, providing the perfect complement to the delicate tunes of bluefin tuna.
Each sip of sake, the famous Japanese rice wine celebrated for centuries, tells a story of heritage and craftsmanship. From Junmai to Daiginjo, TOMO’s traditional sake selection provides a glimpse into the rich tapestry of Japanese brewing traditions, enhancing the cultural immersion that is integral to the dining at the best Japanese restaurant in Atlanta.
Health Benefits of Bluefin Tuna
In addition to its delicious taste, bluefin tuna provides numerous health benefits. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, it supports heart health and is a nutrient-rich choice for those seeking a balanced diet.
It’s also loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, selenium, and phosphorus, achieving a well-rounded nutritional profile. And last but not least, its lean protein content makes bluefin tuna sashimi the most guilt-free Japanese treat.
