A truly delectable piece of grilled Ahi tuna on fresh Ciabatta bread with peppercorn aioli, housemade olive tapenade, thinly sliced roma tomatoes, and organic greens.
This has to be the most mind-blowingly delicious tuna sandwich on earth. When made with quality ingredients, fish sandwiches are almost invariably tasty—but this sandwich is a notch above even the best fish sandwich I have tried. I’m not always a fan of rare tuna on bread – I don’t always find the textures to be complimentary – but the combination of these two ingredients is one of the most addictive things about this amazing little sandwich. The Ciabatta is freshly made, buttery, grilled and flavorful, and both crunchy and soft at the same time. The tuna is flavourful and such an exquisite texture, neither chewy nor dry but soft and heavenly–seriously, the chef had to have been paying attention down to the second. The aioli gives the sandwich just a hint of peppercorn, and the tapenade is complex and delicious. The result is that every time your teeth sink into this juicy sandwich you are treated to an array of incredible flavors and textures that make it impossible to put down until you are finished.
I don’t know why I find it so strange that one of the most fantastic restaurants on earth is located in Spokane. Perhaps it is because Mizuna is across the street from the most bleak-looking Macy’s I’ve ever seen. But nothing I have tasted at this outrageously good restaurant has been less than fabulous, and it is all so fresh and healthy–not to mention locally sourced and organic. Mizuna makes my top 5 list of best restaurants anywhere, ever.
