Special thanks to Jaslyn for the invite!

I remember how bummed I was when I missed the auspicious timing for tuna auction at Tsukiji market and I made up for it by queueing a grand total of 3 hours in the wee hours of morning in the cold for Sushi Dai. Fast forward many other japanese meals later, I get invited to a meal that kickstarts with an actual live Bluefin Tuna cutting demonstration, kindly supported by Oceans of Seafood. 

I may miss out on the cold and having to trudge the streets of Japan at ungodly hours so why not pop by Oceans of Seafood at Pasarbella daily at 6pm for all the action that is happening!

Chef Mizu San performed a medley with the majestic 50 kilogrammed blue fin Tuna. Skillfully trimming off the prized parts of chutoro and negitoro for our viewing pleasure. 

If tuna is not up your alley, there are tons of other seafood available to tantalise your tastebuds as well!

Boston lobsters never fail to tempt me. Buy a lobster get 50% off oysters? I say deal.

When you have decided on which seafood, head over to the counter to decide the cooking method. Sushimi, sushi, grill or poach.

Soaked in brine, these were great with sake or beer.

Lobsters galore these days, I was hoping to check off another lobster roll but grilled lobster is good too.

Do remember to try their miso soup, made with mussels and fish stock that made this extra tasty.

Christmas always gives me reason to drink and in this case, Oceans of Seafood has 2 festive cocktails to recommend. Peach jelly infused with sake, a lady's drink that left me light headed but terribly in love with the jelly texture. This could double up as a dessert too!

For the more gungho, here's plum liqueur.

It was a gastronomical meal to add - the copious amounts of blue fin tuna consumed.The slashed prices makes travelling so far for it a good deal too!

Merry Christmas one and all!
