Ahi tuna is a popular restaurant menu item these days, often popping up in the most unexpected places – for instance at Cabo Fresh, a California-Mexican grill in Stony Brook that's been around a little more than a year. Here you'll find it prepared in tacos or burrito-style, and it's worth giving it a shot.
The Dish: Seared Ahi Tuna Tacos (3 for $9.95)
What's Inside: Besides the obvious seared ahi tuna, you'll find lime-cilantro rice, pico de gallo, and fresh spinach, all topped with wasabi cucumber sauce.
Eat this Because: The ahi tuna can be cooked to your liking, whether you like it rare or well done, and it perfectly pairs a combination of typical Asian flavors like wasabi with Mexican flavors like pico de gallo, lime and cilantro.
Side Dish: A tasty bargain – for the holiday season, Cabo Fresh is offering a free $5 bonus gift card with every purchase of a $25 gift card.
