El Capricho Ventresca de Bonito del Norte


A very limited amount of this, the world’s #1 canned tuna according to the worldbestfish.com rankings (#1 Overall and #1 in the Tuna Category), makes it into the US each season.  Our allotment disappears quickly, and we  encourage you to order this without hesitation when it’s available, and to get on the waiting list for more by ordering it even if it shows as out of stock. You will never be charged for anything until we ship it, but you’ll reserve your spot on the list.

Net weight: 110g (3.88oz)

    Had to try it once. For me, 4 stars. Very creamy, rich, smooth in texture — great if that’s what you like in a tinned fish.

    Good but not my favorite, but I am less of a fan of tuna belly or fatty cuts of fish in general so it’s just a difference in taste… (plus, at this price I’d only ever buy one tin unless it was one of my favorites of all time).

    This was a four out of five stars for me. What you get is a nice tin with somewhat loosely packed ventresca/tuna belly pieces in sunflower oil. The fish is quite delicate and tended to crumble/break up but this could’ve been due to my novice chopstick skills. I appreciate being able to savor the richness and clean tuna flavor. This is on par with getting tuna sashimi toro at a good Japanese restaurant. I ate this on it’s own, and also with a tomato salad with olive oil.

    One reason for me to knock this review down to four stars is that I’m unclear on how this is considered to be the #1 overall tinned fish and perhaps I was expecting a bit more given the price point (I will be trying/reviewing the Gueyu Mar shortly after this one to do a comparison). It was worth for me to try this at least once and it’s TBD whether I will purchase again.
