5th January 2023

FairPrice Parkway Parade has exclusive bluefin tuna and live cutting sessions

Japan has opened its borders, but if you haven’t had the opportunity to snag a plane ticket to Tokyo, FairPrice Xtra Parkway Parade is coming at you with the next best thing: a re-creation of the Tsukiji Outer Market experience with their live bluefin tuna cutting sessions. Held on 6 January and 14 January at 11am in front of the supermarket’s sushi counter, patrons get to witness a huge Southern bluefin tuna get masterfully sliced into a variety of cuts by expert chefs.

The chefs will offer patrons a masterclass in identifying the different cuts, from the fatty o-toro and chu-otoro belly cuts, to the lean akami tuna loin.

Diners can opt to purchase these freshly sliced cuts to take home, including a few rare cuts lesser known to locals. For instance, there is the noten, which comes from the top of the tuna’s head. This cut combines lean meat, fat, and tendon for texture. Noten can be enjoyed as sashimi, grilled, or in stews.

For a variety of textures, try the hoho-niku, the soft and fibrous cheek cut that you can eat fried, grilled, aburi-ed, or as is.

Finally, try the kama-toro, a back-of-the-cheek cut that is akin to akami, albeit with more fat. These melt-in-your-mouth morsels can be eaten raw, seared, or grilled.

The cuts are all priced at $5.88 for 100g.

Bluefin tuna isn’t just delicious—it has plenty of health benefits too. This fish is a fantastic source of key nutrients, including Omega 3 fatty acids, B Complex vitamins, potassium, iodine, magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, and selenium.

If you’re not very familiar with cooking bluefin tuna, don’t sweat it. Diners can opt to have their tuna purchases prepared fresh at the supermarket’s dine-in space, The Kitchen. Have your tuna sliced or lightly seared by former Asian Food Network Chef Issac Low, who currently helms and runs Ban Tong Seafood. There’s also the option to pair the fresh tuna with sake!
