Return to all

– Dec 1, 2020 –

Buri (Wild Yellowtail) is harvested in the sea surrounding Japan and is considered the king of winter fish. This is the reason why Buri appears so frequently in our newsletter and at our sushi bar!

Buri is known as Shusseuo, or advancement fish, which is recognized with a different name at different stages of its growth. The baby buri is called Mojako, then changes Wakashi, Inada, Warasa and Buri as it grows. “Shusse” means career success, and Buri is well regarded for symbolizing career success.
