Blue Seafood Asia has finally opened its doors in DIFC, Dubai, to offer guests an authentic ‘sea to table’ premium yet casual Asian seafood experience. Showcasing a rich array of unmatched fresh and flavourful dishes, prepared by renowned international chefs, Blue Seafood Asia’s concept is inspired by the azure oceans of Asia, the lively fish markets, upbeat vibes and sensational cooking techniques of seaside Asia. All of these elements have been translated into the design, ambiance and tasting menu of the restaurant.
Featuring a relaxed yet elegant setting, this new DIFC dining hotspot caters to the eclectic neighbourhood of Dubai. The interiors at Blue Seafood Asia borrow inspiration from the notion of abundance of produce, good food and time for conversation that is at the heart of the Asian marketplace experience.
Blue Seafood Asia is not shy to offer its guests a lively, magical, and nature-inspired atmosphere, embodying the relaxed and chic ambiance of Asian Pacific décor – flattered by sophisticated Mediterranean and industrial creative touches. The ceiling of Blue Seafood Asia is covered with a zestful collage of sea wave decoration and warmly-lit wool lanterns hanging from atop, an invigorating display of tree plant pots at every corner, and opulent circular-shaped dining lounge embroidered with tropical imprint designs.
As one of Blue Seafood Asia’s fundamental building blocks of success, Chef Andrei Voitovici will oversee the restaurant’s meticulously served dishes offering a classic yet delicious selection of Asian dishes, starting with the raw and oyster bar station which displays mouth-watering sushi, nigiri and sashimi Platters.
Guests looking for sizzling hot appetizers can choose from the tantalizing Pan-Fried Crab Cake coated with mango, kiwi and papaya sauce dressing or a tangy Prawn Nori Tempura glazed in Thai mayonnaise. As for the speciality courses, the Tom Yum and Dumplings, Blue Crab Platter and Mussels Pot form the perfect trilogy for seafood enthusiasts to indulge in. For rice and noodle lovers, guests can savour the egg infused Pad Thai Noodles coated with mixed vegetables, fiery chilli paste and crunchy peanuts, or try-out the Mixed Mushroom Stir-Fry starter served with pak choy, spinach, crispy garlic and a sprinkle of sesame seeds for an appetizing side dish.
In addition, the entrance of Blue Seafood Asia boasts a very welcoming setting with its exclusive aisle display of freshly caught fish, crabs and shrimps to offer guests a unique indoor fish market experience. The Asian seafood restaurant’s menu also infuses bold yet light and distinct dishes that are complimented by seasonal flavours and offerings, with a compromise for sustainability, where almost 80 percent of the restaurant’s products are locally sourced.
Blue Seafood Asia also features a separate casual lounge and dining area accompanied by several live cooking displays and a theatrical kitchen which includes an authentic noodle pulling station and a first-class sushi bar counter, elevated through an upbeat yet casual musical atmosphere and a DJ to set a unique enchanting scene. The premium-casual Asian seafood restaurant also provides visitors with a spectacular outdoor terrace seating for a blissful outdoor dinner experience, which overlooks the glittering skyline of DIFC.
