Tuna Head at Miyake
Last Night, Five of my lucky friends were treated to an extra-special treat along with their tasting menus at Miyake: A whole, slow roasted Bluefin Tuna head. We had got the whole fish in the day prior, and Masa had asked me if I thought anyone would enjoy eating the entire head as a family-style dish. Are you fucking kidding me? Who WOULDN'T want to tear this up?
Masa slow roasted it for almost three hours.
We presented it to the table, and the rest of the dining room, in a ridiculous manner. The head was then taken back and Masa separated the meat onto serving platters, with a creamy ponzu dipping sauce. Eating Tuna in this way is not unlike eating delicious and fatty pork ribs, falling off the bone.
You can now start with the "Tuna Head" Jokes...
