Indulging in the tuna season was also us having the ‘Nodo’ Nimono ($40), a hunky Slow-Braised Bluefin Tuna’s Jowl. So meaty and succulent, the jowl or to be more exact the throat, was well-marinated and simply delicious. The flavourful cut had a good bit of fat lined around so expect real tender bites but it didn’t feel too unctuous and on a whole, the texture was surprisingly similar to braised pork in my opinion. The lip-smacking savoury sauce paired really well with the steaming bowl of white rice as well.

Available only till end of year.
