Chikarashi, NYC
 
There is a new fast casual restaurant in Chinatown NYC near where I get my monthly acupressure sessions. They are known for their poke bowls. However, they also sell seared toro bowls on a limited basis. As explained to me by the owner, the fresh tuna that’s delivered to them has a layer of toro which they will serve seared until they sell out.

The place is adorably minimalist. And, I like chalkboard menus.

The seared toro was a bit cooked for me. I like it more raw. The bowl came with garlic bits and to my surprise freshly sliced ginger which I didn’t see until I got to the middle of the bowl. Overall, I like the freshness of the seared toro bowl. I think I’ll go for the poke bowls next time.

There is a surprising dessert option – pineapple soft serve. The owner gave me a sample to taste. It’s tart but glutten free.
