Fish Information
Tuna supply is OK OK in October. Hard to get blue fin or big eye tuna. I just get Yellow fin tuna. Uni is Maine is most. I get California uni sometimes but I do not like its quality and the price.
Scallop is back to normal. It is from live from Boston area.
I finish to sell Anago, sea eel from Japan. It is hard to sell this fish. Most pf people like Unagi, fresh water eel.
Sujiko , fresh salmon roe comes every 2 weeks from Alaska and people like this.
I will get fresh wild caught Buri, adult size of Hamachi, yellow tail. This is going to be next Thursday.
I am trying to buy something new.

November 1st  is Annual Sushi Day.
It comes again. Our National Sushi Day. But many people don’t know it. November is good month for eating raw fish because temperature is down and fish get fat more inside. It means fish taste is better. So Japanese sushi association decides November 1st is Sushi Day.
It is dinner only event, you can get 30% off all sushi items, sashimi, sushi and rolls. Enjoy and celebrate National Sushi Day!

Dietary fish, n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid consumption, and depression risk in Japan: a population-based prospective cohort study.
An early ecological study showing a significant inverse correlation between per capita fish consumption, that is, primary dietary sources of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and 1-year prevalence of depression1 created new interest in the link between depression and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). One meta-analysis found low peripheral levels of n-3 PUFAs, EPA and DHA in patients with depression compared with controls.2 In addition, the magnitude of the effect size of differences in the levels of n-3 PUFAs was larger in analyses restricted to studies that used DSM criteria for major depressive disorder (MDD). Several recent meta-analyses of clinical trials indicated that n-3 PUFA supplementation has a beneficial effect in patients with depression3, 4, 5, 6 and showed that EPA-predominant formulations are more efficacious than placebo for the treatment of DSM-diagnosed MDD.6 The therapeutic mechanism of n-3 PUFAs remains unclear, but it is assumed that n-3 PUFAs have diverse neurobiological activities related to immunomodulation, anti-inflammation, neurotransmission and neuroprotection, contributing to their anti-depressive effects.7 Read more? http://www.nature.com/tp/journal/v7/n9/full/tp2017206a.html?foxtrotcallback=true

This is yellow fin tuna. Tuna supply is not great so far. I think it is because of Hurricane issue.
I will get new tuna on Thursday.
Buying tuna is not easy. We don't know when we can get good tuna.
I try to not buy much yellow fin tuna because I wait big eye tuna and blue fin tuna. If I have inventory of yellow fin tuna, I cannot buy new tuna.

Fish Information
This is very surprise. Boston Blue fin tuna is coming today. ¼ back size is 60 lbs, it means the total weight of this tuna is 300-350 lbs. The last time I received was almost a month ago and was really good. I am expecting this tuna.
Uni supply is changing. Japanese uni cannot get this week because of typhoon. But Maine uni is coming back. It was quarter for 6 months but we can catch now. California uni is also coming back.
Kinki, thorn head is on the menu now. It is a tiny fish but the price is more expensive than toro. It is called white fish toro. Akamutsu,Black throat is also getting popular.I but Akamutsu 2 times a week but always sold out. I feel the people finally understand what is good Japanese fish. The price is high but still much cheaper than NYC and other restaurants here.

Monday is Sushi Day.
All Togo orders are 20% off. These offers are Monday only. We extend it this month. I think I do this for a while.

September is Wine month.
The temperature is still high but patio season is coming back. It cools down at evening and good for wines. We can offer all bottles wines 30% off this month. I do Beer special in October, Sake special in November.

Eating meat linked to higher risk of diabetes
The Singapore Chinese Health Study reveals increased risk of diabetes with higher intake of red meat and poultry, partially attributed to the dietary iron content in these meats. While a plant-based diet is generally considered healthier than a meat-based diet in preventing the risk of diabetes, not all meats affect the risk equally. As Professor Koh Woon Puay of Clinical Sciences at Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS), and her team found out, higher intakes of red meat and poultry are associated with a significantly increased risk of developing diabetes, which is partially attributed to their higher content of heme iron in these meats. This study provides the foundation for evidence-based dietary recommendations to the Singapore population in mitigating diabetes risk and reducing the healthcare burden of this chronic condition.  
I think once a week of meat is fine. We need to take some protein from meat that I feel. Eating meat increase fighting spirit for business or sports I feel it. I do eat steak before the golf game or when I get tired. This is all mental issue actually.  My meal is 60-80% vegetables and I take fish every 2 days. Meat is once a week.

Linton Hopkins just opened a new steak house at Sun Trust Ball park. C Ellet’s Steak House has oyster and steak. I will go there soon to dine.
