Two days ago my friend and I embarked on the ultimate seafood indulgence journey in Oban, a seaside town in Scotland famously known for amazing seafood. We decided to treat ourselves to the most luxurious item on the menu of Ee-Usk – the GRAND PLATTER, consisting of 6 oysters, half lobster, dressed crab, king scallops, langoustines, Thai fish cakes, smoked salmon, fresh salmon, mussels, and crab claws. This was honestly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is probably never to be repeated, and the seafood was SO GOOD AND FRESH AND HEAVENLY. Though by the end of the meal I felt like I could never eat seafood again simply because that was sooooooo much food for two people…but we finished it – even the lemon slices!

Spontaneous dining at China Blue after Bible study on Wednesday – first up, Malacca-style stir-fried seafood!
I was in the mood for some Korean food today, so I went to supposedly a very authentic Korean restaurant with a friend. I ordered the jajangmyeon plus champongbap combo – jajangmyeon is a noodle dish with a thick black bean sauce mixed with beef and vegetables, and champongbap is spicy seafood soup with a bowl of rice. Boy the portions were much larger than I had expected…but I was hungry! The food was so…good! The soup was very hearty and super tasty, and I hadn’t expected the noodles to be so delicious. Love ❤
Today’s lunch was an indulgent seafood meal shared with a friend. It consisted of 25 raw oysters, 1 kg of mussels, 500 g of each of shrimps, sea snails, and clams, some kimchi and some strawberries, all bought from our very on Capucins market. I’m not sure what went through our heads when we decided to do this but hey, it was a magnificently glorious feast, and we had no regrets 😀
It’s a lovely holiday Wednesday, so my colleagues and I decided to finally go to that all-you-can-eat seafood restaurant by the river. We all dressed up nicely for good food and a fun night out. When I saw the food, all I could say was…wow! It was definitely worth the 35 Euros, especially for a seafood lover like me 😉
