The Story Behind Our Signature Dishes: Part 2 – Spicy Tuna Uramaki

Spicy Tuna Uramaki


Our Spicy Tuna Uramaki is more than just a sushi roll; it’s a culinary triumph that symbolizes SakkuSamba’s distinct approach to fusion cuisine. Striking a perfect balance between traditional Japanese sushi and innovative gastronomy, this dish reflects a culinary journey that marries familiarity with daring novelty.

Inspired by the precision and artful simplicity of traditional sushi-making, the Spicy Tuna Uramaki relies on high-quality tuna for its robust, umami-rich base. However, it’s the bold twists, such as the addition of a house-blended chilli sauce and crispy tempura bits, that take this dish into the realm of modern gastronomy.

The balance of tradition and innovation, coupled with a tantalizing flavour profile, explains why the Spicy Tuna Uramaki has become a beloved staple at SakkuSamba. This dish embodies our commitment to delivering unique, memorable culinary experiences, making it a popular choice for sushi connoisseurs and adventurous foodies.

The Signature Elements

The enchantment of our Spicy Tuna Uramaki begins with the choice of premium-grade tuna. Our skilled chefs are meticulous in selecting the freshest, most flavourful tuna to serve as the central component of this dish. The quality of the tuna not only imparts a rich, umami base but also sets the quality standard for the rest of the ingredients. Each piece of fish is hand-selected, delicately sliced, and then marinated in a secret blend of spices to intensify the taste.

In stark contrast to the robust flavour of the tuna is the playful crunch of tempura bits. To create this element, our chefs prepare a fresh batch of tempura daily, frying it to a perfect golden brown. These crispy morsels are then lightly scattered throughout the roll, offering an unexpected yet pleasing textural diversity to each bite.

The structure of the roll itself is a testament to our attention to detail. Using years of experience and artisanal skills, our sushi chefs carefully spread a layer of perfectly seasoned sushi rice over a delicate sheet of nori (seaweed). The rice is cooked to the ideal texture and cooled to the right temperature, ensuring it forms a perfect envelope for the richly flavoured tuna and tempura bits.

What truly sets our Spicy Tuna Uramaki apart from the rest is our innovative incorporation of mayonnaise and chilli sauce. Using a house-made mayonnaise, prepared fresh daily to retain its creamy texture and rich taste, our chefs artfully drizzle this over the tuna. Then comes a sprinkling of our signature chilli sauce – a top-secret blend of spices and chillies that has been refined over years. The sauce is cautiously added to ensure just the right amount of heat; enough to awaken the palate but not to overpower the other delicate flavours in the roll.

The result of this careful construction is a symphony of flavours that is complex and intriguing. Every bite of our Spicy Tuna Uramaki is a testament to SakkuSamba’s commitment to culinary excellence – a harmonious balance of tastes, textures, and temperatures, designed to delight and satisfy. This innovative fusion of traditional sushi elements with our unique, bold flavours is what makes our Spicy Tuna Uramaki an unforgettable dining experience.
