We *Heart* Traceability

One of the key tenets of sustainable sushi is traceability.  At Mashiko, we are proud to have the ever-vigilant Hajime investigating the origins of our seafood.  What?  You don’t think traceability has a direct impact on you?  Well then, please take a gander at this article.  It seems that some restaurants have been serving (we hope unknowingly) the infamous escolar in lieu of tuna.   We’re all for surprises, but getting the tuna/escolar switch would probably make us insane with, well…  stomach cramps, loose bowel movements, anal leakage, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

Accidentally eating escolar may lead to other types of accidents.

We like you, and we don’t want you to get sick.  That is one of the reasons we are such sticklers for traceability.  We can identify the fish we serve as well as tell you where they came from and how they were caught.  When you order sushi, ask questions about what you will be getting.  The best sushi chefs study what they serve.  Eat well, and be well!
