How is Sashimi from Toyosu Direct different ?
The best of best quality Sashimi from Japan
Sashimi cut right at the market
Toyosu Direct's sashimi is immediately prepared by skilled artisans within the market premises and then flash-frozen. By being cut and frozen right after preparation, it not only ensures freshness but also helps prevent parasites and other contaminants.
The utilization of rare rapid freezing technology
Toyosu Direct's sashimi is immediately prepared by skilled artisans within the Toyosu Market and then subjected to flash freezing. The availability of these specialized flash-freezing facilities is quite rare even within the largest market in Japan, the Toyosu Market. It is thanks to this freezing technology that we are able to deliver sashimi that has been prepared "within the market" to Singapore.
The craftsmanship of filleting
The person who prepares sashimi is extremely important. Knowledge of the appropriate way to cut each type of fish, the thickness of the slices, and other factors is crucial. Knowing which parts of the fish are the most delicious and being able to handle them accordingly contributes to creating a more delicious sashimi. For example, octopus is cut with serrated edges to ensure that soy sauce adheres evenly. However, only a few people can skillfully execute this technique, as most often the cuts are made in straight lines. At Tsukiji Direct, our sashimi is prepared by skilled artisans who possess the knowledge and expertise in the art of cutting fish.
Abundant variety achievable through direct market delivery
Thanks to our connections with buyers who can directly source from Toyosu Market, we are able to deliver fish varieties that are not commonly available in Singapore household. This allows us to offer sashimi options such as kohada (small skin) and hokkigai (North shellfish), which are not typically consumed in households. Toyosu Direct strives to provide a wide selection of sashimi that goes beyond the usual offerings found in Singapore.
