Spicy Tuna Rice Bowl

Spicy Tuna Rice Bowl

Background and History:

The Spicy Tuna Rice Bowl, also known as “Chirashi,” has its origins in Japanese cuisine. This dish combines fresh sashimi-grade tuna with a spicy and flavorful sauce, served over a bed of sushi rice. While Chirashi itself has a long history in Japan, the addition of spicy flavors brings a modern twist to this delightful and visually appealing meal.
