Course #4: Sashimi on Carved Ice
Hiro carves his own ice blocks every afternoon to prepare for the evening meal. Today's sashimi included toro, red snapper, and yellowtail. Hiro mentioned that the toro is from Boston and the yellowtail is from Japan (caught in the Sea of Japan). The sashimi is excellent. The toro melts in your mouth, the red snapper has a slight citrus flavor, and the yellowtail has the right combination of fat and flavor.
