Presented earlier this year at the New York Restaurant Show and the Boston Seafood Show, True World Foods will showcase Toro Hamachi at the 2014 National Restaurant Show at McCormick Place in Chicago, May 17-20. Show attendees are invited to Booth #5056 to learn about True World Foods’ many exciting product offerings, including Toro Hamachi.

Raised like Kobe beef with a fatty tuna taste, Toro Hamachi is Toro-like quality yellowtail. Restaurateurs and chefs who have tried it are amazed by the extraordinary taste and quality of this product. One of the secrets to its quality is the limited harvest period, which takes place primarily from December-February, said to be the apex of when fish put on fat in Japan.

One of the most experienced fish farms in Japan produces this premium product, only per special order and only using live, stress-reduced fish. Prior to harvest fish achieve an average 30% fatty portion, compared to the usual 15-18% for yellowtail. Following harvest, a special technology called Cho Rei Kun is used to maximize and preserve the original beauty and taste of the fish. Characteristics of the Cho Rei Kun process require fish to be quickly and completely bled, then to enter a freezing treatment within two hours of harvest. Careful handling of the fish insures the all-important color, texture and taste are retained, and peak umami is achieved only after defrosting for maximum dining enjoyment.

Many Japanese restaurants already have Toro Hamachi on their menus. To search for restaurants serving Toro Hamachi, go to
