In Which a Dish for the Indecisive Appears…

Tempura Tuna Sashimi Tartare

Ever have one of those days when you head over to a restaurant, look at the menu, and can’t decide on what it is you want exactly?  If you’re torn between tempura and sashimi (or sushi for that matter), I suggest that you head on over to Teriyaki Boy and order a plate of their tempura tuna sashimi tartare.

It’s essentially chopped-up raw tuna fillets mixed with a bracingly sharp wasabi and Kewpie mayo dressing.  Crunchy tempura crumbs are strewn generously over the pile of pink fish and the whole thing is topped with shredded spring onion.  The end result is a fresh-tasting dish given an unctuousness with a welcome crunch.

You can order this as an appetizer to share, but I prefer this as a summery entree with plain white rice as it’s quite satisfying.  The bottomless iced tea is a must.  😀
