    Eli,I asked my sis-in-law (she's Japanese from Tokyo) about "Hontoro". She told me that she knows "Honmaguro" is the "highest grade tuna caught near Japanese shore", and sent me a link that indicates that, gradewise, as you suspect, "hontoro" is in between the lower "chutoro" and the top "otoro".I've had otoro a few times (not here though) and, honestly, can't really tell much of a difference vis-à-vis the hontoro we had (chutoro is a different matter). That said, my wife recalls that the otoro we had at the Ginza (the premier Jap restaurant in Bangkok many years ago) was much better.Best,N
