Tuna head

He other day I ate a tuna head in Misakiguchi. It was a restaurant specialized in cooking only tuna heads. It was delicious. But we were six people and we couldn’t finish even one head!

After dinner, this is what we left over.

And he is the chef. It seems he is one of the best tuna chefs in Japan, he explained us that lately he is using lots of tuna coming from Spain.

    Can’t you please explain a bit more what’s eatable and ‘not’?? It made me curious, and I think I must try this next time I visit Japan.. =D
