Momo's

I talked to the owners of Momo's Sushi tonight. Good News! They are set to re-open this Friday! They have expanded the size of the restaurant, new booths, lights and paint. Perhaps it will be easier to get a seat on a busy night. Mmmmm sushi! :cursor:

That's so great! I love that place! Did a menu change come with the new renovation or is it the same?

Bluefin tuna sells for $1.76 million

A bluefin tuna sold for a record $1.76 million at a Tokyo auction Saturday, nearly three times the previous high set last year -- even as environmentalists warn that stocks of the majestic, speedy fish are being depleted worldwide amid strong demand for sushi.

In the year's first auction at Tokyo's sprawling Tsukiji fish market, the 222-kilogram (489-pound) tuna caught off northeastern Japan sold for 155.4 million yen, said Ryoji Yagi, a market official.

The fish's tender pink and red meat is prized for sushi and sashimi. The best slices of fatty bluefin -- called "o-toro" here -- can sell for 2,000 yen ($24) per piece at upmarket Tokyo sushi bars.

Japanese eat 80 per cent of the bluefin tuna caught worldwide, and much the global catch is shipped to Japan for consumption.

The winning bidder, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Kiyomura Co., which operates the Sushi-Zanmai restaurant chain, said "the price was a bit high," but that he wanted to "encourage Japan," according to Kyodo News agency. He was planning to serve the fish to customers later Saturday.

Kimura also set the old record of 56.4 million yen at last year's New Year's auction, which tends to attract high bids as a celebratory way to kick off the new year -- or get some publicity. The high prices don't necessarily reflect exceptionally high fish quality.

The price works out to a stunning 700,000 yen per kilogram, or $3,603 per pound.

Stocks of all three bluefin species -- the Pacific, Southern and Atlantic -- have fallen over the past 15 years amid overfishing.

Stocks of bluefin caught in the Atlantic and Mediterranean plunged by 60 per cent between 1997 and 2007 due to rampant, often illegal, overfishing and lax quotas. Although there has been some improvement in recent years, experts say the outlook for the species is still fragile.

Not all sushi is made with this tuna, let alone raw fish. I for one, do not eat raw fish, but there are plenty of other types of sushi, let alone tempura, noodles and a whole bunch of other delicacies. My vote is for Momo Sushi.

What's really crazy is that out of that $1.76 million tuna there will be maybe 40 lbs. of belly, etc. used and the rest will essentially be trashed. Who the @#$%& will spend $44,000 a lb. for fish? :ohmygod:

They eat more than just the belly of a tuna.

OK, lets assume the entire tuna (all 498 lbs of it) is eaten or used for something that still works out to over $3,500 a lb! That's a lot of cash for some meat and tuna scraps!

Be sure that it is indeed tuna you are paying for and not an asian special version of pricey tuna

There is a new place on the Westside it starts with an S (Sakura??) and it is pretty darn good and reasonably priced too. It's right on the highway!

Sakura, I've eaten there a few times (actually I can see the sign out my office window right now). I've really never had bad sushi in Kelowna at any of the 6 places I've been.
