Given the raw wagyu I think you are right.

You can eat wagyu raw.


Good_old_Marshmallow t1_j6ejfgk wrote

You can eat the right quality of beef raw assuming it has been handled well. That’s absolutely not the case for 99.9% of beef but in this case that wagyu is probably fine. Would be nice to give it a bit of a seer for flavor tho

It could be extra fatty tuna as well, I have had some that looked like this.


detmeng t1_j6dm9y2 wrote

Don't think that is wagyu, fatty tuna belly i think.


tidbitsz t1_j6dnsm8 wrote

The one on the 2nd row definitely otoro (fatty tuna belly)

The one on the last row next to the scallops seems to be beef based on its marbling... and ive only seen marbling like that from high quality wagyu

Right? It's like it was plated at a local tackle shop.

I actually like this, straight to the point. It’s gonna cost my week’s salary tho with all that wagyu and caviar


Steve_Curry30 t1_j6duhio wrote

This looks like the sashimi is prepped to be formed into nigiri, definitely not ready to be served yet


Thedrunner2 t1_j6cw405 wrote

What was the total cost?


Randomthought5678 t1_j6e06ef wrote

Something like this would probably be a large sashimi platter which would cost somewhere between 100 and 140 bucks depending where you go. Then again there's definitely some unusual items for my area items on there so it could be more.

I would share this with one of the person with a couple other nigiri pieces a la carte. Probably add some uni because it's delicious and an invasive species in California.

I've never had it come on such a utilitarian service though. Usually it comes on a fancy platter and they stage the fish with shredded daikon radish and shisho leaves. At some places it can get very ornate.

Does anybody know what the first fish on the second row is?


E_Snap t1_j6hfgp2 wrote

Uni forager here— hate to burst your bubble but the uni that you can get in restaurants is red urchin, not purple urchin. Purple urchin is the invasive species that is destroying kelp forests and eating away the coastal rock. It is much smaller than red urchin, which is a highly-sought-after and overfished find that is exported worldwide from San Diego. Red urchin has a more briny flavor and the gonads are far larger, whereas purple urchin has a really creamy (better) flavor. Unfortunately its gonads are so small that they are an enormous pain to clean, so sushi restaurant don’t use them.

Every time I go purple urchin foraging, I wind up getting home to clean them at like 6PM and eating at like 10 or later.


nancylafancy t1_j6hlzwq wrote

You forage it? That’s frikkin cool!!!


E_Snap t1_j6hnn6s wrote

Lol it’s almost like an extreme sport. You’re clinging for dear life to the edge of tide pool rocks where they meet the surf, working in the time between the waves swamping you, and trying to dig the urchins out of the sockets in the rock that they’ve eaten themselves into. Highly recommended. You do need a fishing license though.


Randomthought5678 t1_j6iddoo wrote

Have you ever heard of gooseneck barnacles? I've always wanted to go forwarding for them but it's pretty dangerous as well. Supposed to be one of the best flavors in the sea though.


nancylafancy t1_j6ler2d wrote

That would be pretty cool to watch! You should start a YouTube channel. Seriously!


Randomthought5678 t1_j6ibhku wrote

I'm not certain but when I get uni that comes in small little strips it's not the invasive species?

Usually uni come in pieces that are maybe an inch across but they started coming in much smaller quarter inch pieces. A serving used to be maybe one or two pieces now they come as many little ones?


E_Snap t1_j6jpsrp wrote

If the restaurant you’re going to specifically calls it “purple urchin,” then you can be sure they are going out of their way to acquire the invasive species. But there is no commercial market for that variety and they are not considered a delicacy commercially, so it would still be surprising to find.


Randomthought5678 t1_j6k3ytr wrote

Yup. It was a big cluster f*** of a dinner party and I don't remember what it said on the menu but I did comment on the pieces being smaller than regular uni. The waitress went into a pretty long description of why it was different while she served us an entire ecosystem.

Umi Sake House in Seattle which is the cat's meow and bougie enough to go to the extra steps.


Exciting-Meringue-85 t1_j6gt191 wrote

>Does anybody know what the first fish on the second row is?

From the dark back, the way those lines look on the silvery sides I'm thinking its a type of eel filet that is butterflied open. That one would be something that gets cooked before consumption though.

Really hard to tell without seeing the flesh side of the fish too, or the fillet not curled on it self like that.


Tronald_Dump69 t1_j6ha128 wrote

Looks like some sort if eel, the bones(?) resemble a snake. That's my guess at least.

> love sashimi but it is anything but filling.

There is a point there where one eats till not hungry anymore instead of full. Being said, can get to the not hungry state within a few pieces, but can take a few dozen to get full.

kind of like with rotisserie chickens... buy one and portion it out and can make food for like 3-4 days when portion controlled right. However, can also eat the whole damn thing in a single sitting to "get full", and then some.

I'm pretty sure top left is tuna. I've never seen whale meat in person but going off the pictures online it's not the right texture. Might not even be dark enough either.


Sipyloidea t1_j6ebfvt wrote

Def. tuna. I've had whale in Japan (didn't know it when I ate it) and it was pretty much transparent. Although I suspect it wasn't the meat, but some fatty bits.

Edit: I just googled whale meat and it's almost black-red.

Don’t. Whale meat is really high in methylmercury thanks to biomagnification. Villages in Japan that rely on whale meat for protein have ridiculous levels of birth defects as a result.

So one thing I learned is that some sushi places will substitute things like white tuna with a fish that will give you awful diarrhea called Escolar. I've steered clear of white fish based sushi ever since.


TreesACrowd t1_j6fnc0d wrote

Escolar is incredibly tasty and you have to eat a fairly large portion of it to experience ill effects. Most restaurants proudly label it as exactly what it is, and people like me happily order it. Don't eat a steak-size portion and you'll be fine.


Sea_Ganache620 t1_j6e5auy wrote

The food poisoning illness was awful, but the explosive diarrhea, and projectile vomiting of wasabi out of my nose… that was real bad.

Escolar is fine for you, just dont go eating an entire plate of it. Its often included in my favorite combo meal and is just 4 pieces, you wont have any issues with that.

Its pretty obvious when its escolar once your use to what it looks like.

ChampionshipLow8541 t1_j6f3uyd wrote

If it’s a sashimi platter, it’s the most uninspiring presentation I have ever seen. Looks more like a prep board. Most of it well end up on the plate as sashimi, sure. But not necessarily all of it.

I‘ve had wagyu sashimi, for instance (bottom row), but it’s not uncommon to flash sear beef for flavor.

Also, the Japanese don’t typically present caviar in jars.


Sipyloidea t1_j6iitd4 wrote

Yeah, they surely do sear beef and stuff like that, but non of this is getting fried or crispy. And yeah, I'm not sure this platter is from a restaurant inside Japan.


CaseyAnthonysMouth t1_j6dp7g6 wrote

NOTTedMosby t1_j6ehhiy wrote

I think those scallops are actually cooked. Raw scallops are kinda semi-translucent like raw fish, and like fish it becomes opaque white when cooked thru.

It’s raw wagyu. I’ve had it raw multiple times.


anormalgeek t1_j6goox9 wrote

Do you prefer it that way?

It's personal preference I know, but I hate the mouth feel of cold beef fat. The flavor is like warm/hot beef fat, but with the volume turned down. Since the fat is the whole point of wagyu, it always seems like a waste to me. A quick sear on it will always taste better imo.


salmonjapan t1_j6gvlaz wrote

very thinly sliced wagyu over rice (donburi) with raw egg yolk, soy sauce, and sesame oil is delicious

the hot rice slightly cooks the beef to perfection

This looks like mise for nigiri pieces. Those cuts aren’t sashimi cuts. You would want thicker shorter cuts for mouth feel. Otherwise it could be stringy and cumbersome in the mouth. The scallops not cut also lead me to believe it’s set up for gunkan.

And that’s not tobiko, it’s caviar and trout roe.
