Go Fish


Published:

Prep your palate for a feast of ramen noodle soup and pork buns with this Ahi Tataki appetizer from UnderBelly, a new ramen house in Little Italy by the same minds behind Neighborhood, Craft & Commerce, Noble Experiment, and El Dorado. The tender, flaky tuna is crusted with togarashi (a Japanese spice blend made from red chili pepper, sesame and poppy seeds, and dried mandarin orange peel), served on a bed of bean and radish sprouts, diced garlic, sesame oil, and tart ponzu sauce for dipping. According to Japanese legend, the cooking method, which involves marinating the fish in vinegar, searing it briefly, and slicing thinly, was invented by a 19th-century rebel samurai. Thankfully, the only skill you’ll need to enjoy it is mastering a pair of chopsticks.
