We had steamed pomfret for dinner last night. Today, I had Japanese sashimi and unagi for lunch followed by Korean hwe dup (a cold, spicy sashimi salad) and spicy pollack stew for dinner.
Tonight, we had dinner at Bukang Tuna, a Japanese-style Korean restaurant at Red Dot Museum which we have walked past countless of times but not gone in.
I have been dying to check out the place because the restaurant looks like it specialises in sashimi and fish-based stews such as spicy codfish stew, globefish stew, spicy pollack stew and some other non-spicy fish stews. I can’t stop thinking about the flatfish sashimi that I have been seeing on the menu whenever I walk past the restaurant.
It is the first time that I’ve eaten hwe dup and it is delicious! I love that it is cold and spicy-saltish-sweet, has thick slices of raw flatfish and loads of crunchy, julienned cucumber, radish and seaweed. The dish is so refreshing to eat on a warm day.
And I couldn’t keep my eyes off the huge platters of tuna sashimi that the folks at the table next to us were feasting on.
We are (at least, I am) definitely going back again and again! Good thing that they have beef bulgogi on the menu so that TBH doesn’t starve while I stuff my face with raw fish.
