Toro is the fatty part of the maguro, and it’s the prime meat that comes from the belly of the fish. With toro, you also have the Otoro and the Chutoro.
“O” means big and “Chu” means medium in Japanese. As it says, Otoro has a marbled texture and is the fattiest part.
This cut is fatty almost to the point of falling apart and can literally melt in your mouth. The amazing sirloin feel of raw tuna fuses together with the fatty tissue from the belly to generate a rich and creamy experience inside your mouth.
Because Otoro is such a limited part of the fish, it is the most expensive.
This highly graded premium cut of Tuna used in high end Sushi establishments and restaurants.
Blue-Fin Tuna is commonly traded on the best Tokyo markets commanding premium prices.
Although sushi includes many various tuna types such as Yellow-fin as well as Big-Eye, excellent quality Otoro and Chutoro is ONLY obtained from only the Blue-fin Tuna.
The word “TORO” is derived from Japanese word of Torokeru which means melt!
