Background A visit to Sea Fu, a Michelin guide restaurant with a contemporary take on Asian food which is located in Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, should be on the top of everyone’s gastronomic bucket list.

Whats it like Whether it is indoor or outdoor seating, the view is not only spectacular, but it is also unparalleled. I had heard so much about the seafood at this restaurant that I decided to eat there on my last visit to Dubai. The ambience was relaxing and tranquil, and the choice of seafood was also exotic and extensive. I opted for the tasting menu with the wine pairing add-on and I knew I had made the right choice as I saw my first course brought to me.

Food and drink I started with smoked Hamachi Carpaccio topped with truffle ponzu, yuzu, garlic chips, burnt orange, spring onion, furikake, carrots, and rice crackers. The menu also included a sushi platter, part of a curated collection prepared by the chef. I was served a spectacular Truffle Gyoza; dumplings stuffed with mushroom, ginger, cabbage, onion, black truffle, and truffle sauce leaving in its wake a mouthful of eclectic flavours. Following close on its heels was a smoky-flavoured grilled octopus on a bed of baby potatoes, drizzled with ssamjang romesco, bonito flakes, and bulgogi sauce. Although I was quite satisfied with the mix of eclectic and exotic starters, I couldn’t resist the Black Cod cooked in Japanese soy marinade, ginger, honey, heirloom carrot, yuzu carrot puree and asparagus. For the pre-dessert, I was served a mouth-watering Yuzu sorbet, crispy meringue, and basil espuma, however, the Mille Feuille with Madagascar vanilla cream, mango, and ginger was the piéce de resistance! I ended this spectacular culinary journey with a single shot of espresso.  

Verdict Currently the restaurant is closed for a transformative renovation, but I would thoroughly recommend anyone looking to revel in the delights of an extraordinary seafood experience to visit Sea Fu once it reopens because it will only get better!
