Tuna (maguro in Japanese マグロ), with its rich flavor and versatile nature, holds a special place in the world of seafood. Among Tomo Restaurant’s repertoire of delectable offerings, the tuna dishes shine with a fusion of traditional Japanese techniques and contemporary twists. 

Today, we will explore all of Tomo’s exquisite tuna creations on its menu.


The Essence of Tuna (Maguro), an Oceanic Treasure

Known for its firm texture and mild yet distinct taste, tuna (maguro) is a prized ingredient that lends itself beautifully to various preparations.

It is a migratory fish found in both temperate and tropical waters worldwide, and it is sourced from the depths of the ocean. The fish is often referred to as the “king of the sea” due to its majestic presence and significant ecological role.

At Tomo Restaurant, the selection of tuna used in the dishes is of the highest quality, sourced responsibly to ensure freshness and sustainability. Each variety offers a unique flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to the dishes it graces.

Tuna’s versatility allows chefs to explore a myriad of culinary techniques, such as raw preparations like sashimi and tartare, or cooked dishes like tataki and rolls. Its firm flesh holds up well to searing, grilling, and marinating, making it a favorite among both chefs and diners.

In every dish at Tomo Restaurant that features tuna, its natural flavor, texture, and nutritional goodness are greatly celebrated. 

Tuna (Maguro) Temptations: Indulge in Tomo’s Masterfully Crafted Creations

Tuna Tartare

A blend of textures and flavors awaits with Tomo’s Tuna Tartare. 

Delicately diced tuna meets sticky yam, scallion, and pink peppercorn, enhanced with the crunch of pistachio and the freshness of shiso (a culinary herb commonly known as “perilla” in English; its leaves are often used in Japanese cuisine as a garnish, for wrapping sushi or sashimi, or as an ingredient in various dishes to add flavor and aroma.) 

A drizzle of balsamic glaze and a hint of wasabi-soy exquisitely elevate the dish.

Tomo Tataki

Tomo Tataki is a celebration of seared tuna paired with ginger, scallion, and shiso, bathed in a garlic-ponzu sauce. Ponzu sauce is a versatile Japanese condiment that combines the tangy flavors of citrus with the savory notes of soy sauce, which creates a well-balanced flavor that is both salty and tangy, with a hint of sweetness.

Tomo Tataki showcases the impeccable balance of heat, tanginess, and umami flavors, which are characterized by a rich, savory, and mouthwatering sensation that enhances the overall flavor profile of food.


“Hanabi” (花火) is a Japanese word that translates to “fireworks”. It is composed of two kanji characters: “hana” (花), meaning “flower,” and “hi” (火), meaning “fire.” Together, “hanabi” represents the beautiful explosions of light and color that fill the sky during fireworks displays. Just like this dish, with its explosion of flavors.

Hanabi consists of crispy rice that provides the perfect canvas for spicy tuna, crunchy garlic, and serrano pepper. Each bite offers a delicious contrast of textures and a burst of spicy goodness.

Ocean 6 Roll

Dive into a sea of flavors with the Ocean 6 Roll, where tuna, smoked salmon, avocado, and seared scallop come together in perfect harmony. 

Enhanced with serrano pepper, sriracha, and ponzu sauce, this roll definitely represents Tomo’s dedication to creating bold and memorable culinary experiences.

Tuna Roll with Shiso

Simple yet elegant, the Tuna Roll with Shiso showcases the delicate flavor of tuna complemented by the refreshing notes of shiso. 

This basil-family herb adds a unique twist to the classic tuna roll, creating a truly Japanese experience.

House Special

The House Special offers a medley of flavors and textures—Tuna, yellowtail, salmon, white fish, masago (a type of fish roe commonly used in Japanese cuisine,) eel, avocado, and cucumber come together to create a sushi masterpiece that is as visually stunning as it is delicious.


Perfect for sharing or indulging solo, the Sushi-Sashimi platter offers a curated selection of Tomo’s finest offerings. 

An irresistible spicy tuna roll, 6 nigiri, and 12 sashimi, this offering showcases the craftsmanship and dedication of Tomo’s culinary team.
