    Negima nabe in Ichimon - Tuna in hot-pot

    Have you ever eaten “tuna in hot-pot”? I think most of you, even if you are Japanese, have never had it or have never heard it. I went to “Ichimon (一文)” in Asakusa last night and discovered totally new tuna dish. The dish name is “Negima Nabe (ねぎま鍋)”.  Tuna lover must try this!   As you know or as you imagine, we often eat tuna raw as Sashimi and Sushi. But here in Ichimon, you can eat tuna in hot-pot called Negima Nabe. “Negi (ねぎ)” is green onion in Japanese and “ma (ま)” is the first character of  “まぐろ” which means tuna in Japanese.   The origin of Negima nabe goes back to Edo-era. At that time, people usually ate lean tuna because fatty tuna was not suitable to keep fresh. Therefore, unfortunately most fatty tuna was discarded. (Oh my god!!!!!! I really like fatty tuna…Mottainai!)   People created a new way of eating tuna so that fatty tuna won’t be discarded anymore. This is how Negima nabe was born....
