Looking for hon maguro - black tuna

Chris G. | Aug 8, 200207:15 PM     4

The "white tuna" question got me wondering if anyone knows where I can find hon maguro (black tuna)? I had this once in New York at Sushisay, but I've never seen it in L.A.

Also, I'm still looking for a place that serves "real" sweet shrimp (ama ebi) - the tiny, delicate and truly sweet tasting shrimp (with the tail in two distinct elongated tubular sections). This is very common in New York and I could often find it at the former Yaohan market in Campbell when I lived up north, but I haven't found it in L.A. yet. This has a much different flavor than the large, raw shrimp served at most sushi restaurants here (and you don't get the fried heads or shrimp-head soup afterwards either). Thanks!
