I'm a huge fan of hirame but I won't eat it if it's not super fresh. This is my 3rd time ordering from Riviera (mostly order Tuna) and wow this was the freshest and most delicious hirame that I've ever tried in a long time! Thank you, Riviera and keep up the good work, please!


Super fresh and tasty!! I can't wait to place another order in the near future. Highly recommended!!
