Alila Seminyak – Seasalt Bids Goodbye to Yellowfin & Bluefin Tuna Over Unsustainable Fishing

Since its opening, Seasalt at Alila Seminyak has been strongly committed to sourcing seafood that is wild-caught and sustainably harvested from the waters of Indonesia. In line with this commitment, Seasalt partners with Bali Sustainable Seafood, a local social enterprise that provides high-quality seafood that is sustainably fished.

Driven by the world’s appetite for tuna, overfishing in the Indian Ocean is damaging the ocean’s ability to sustain tuna populations, especially of yellowfin tuna. Recent reports state that the yellowfin tuna forms a significant portion of the annual tuna catches in the Indian Ocean, around 42 percent. Therefore, it has been recommended that tuna fishing be reduced by 20 percent to hopefully allow tuna stocks to recover in the next five years.


Through its action, Seasalt hopes to contribute to restoring a sustainable future for tuna, the world’s most favourite fish, particularly its most threatened species. Although yellowfin and bluefin tuna will no longer be on its menu, Seasalt has nevertheless prepared a sustainable replacement using skipjack, a local fish sustainably harvested directly from the waters around Indonesia.

Dine with Ease of Mind at Modern Australian Restaurant Hue

Located at a landmark harbourfront location at the Hong Kong Museum of Art in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hue, the latest in a series of innovative culinary concepts by leading hospitality group Woolly Pig Hong Kong, combines breath-taking Victoria Harbour panoramas with exquisite modern Australian cuisine. This spring, as flu viruses cause panic across the region, the team at the 5,000 sq. ft. Hue is focusing its efforts on delivering diners enhanced levels of sanitation paired with immune system-fortifying dishes by Australian Executive Chef Anthony Hammel.

The first focus is to ensure diners are entering into a germ-free environment, with hand sanitiser stations set up at the entrance of Hue. A key element of Hue’s interior design also lends itself to a safe environment for diners. Tables at Hue are some of the farthest apart in the city, ensuring both privacy and a hygienic buffer for guests.

To ensure strong immune systems that can fight off illness, meals start off with a complementary immune-boosting juice shot upon the guests’ arrival. The timeless combination of fresh beetroot and ginger juice ensures sufficient vitamin delivery and bolsters the body’s natural defences before diners begin their meal.

Hue’s menu is laced with healthy, balanced dishes, some of which are new additions. These include confit Australia Spanner crab with almond cream, grapes and pickled hibiscus; grilled Spanish octopus with charred and pickled eggplant and fresh mint; Australian striploin served with burnt carrot puree, trumpet mushrooms and fermented Shimeji mushroom; and house-made fig leaf ice cream, with nutrient-packed rhubarb, fermented strawberry jelly and buckwheat crumble.

In addition, the restaurant has introduced a selection of vegetarian dishes, each packed with the goodness of mother nature, to ensure healthy guilt-free dining.

The healing powers of tea have long been heralded in Eastern culture, and Hue taps into that rich heritage with an extensive selection of artisan fruit and herbal tea blends from Hong Kong boutique tea company TeaCha. The range includes Earl Green, a balanced blend combining the classic bergamot orange peel style with green Japanese sencha; Blueberry Muffin Rooibos, a rooibis tea blended with blueberry to boast a fruity aroma with the added benefit of Vitamin C; and Persimmon Peach, with delivers a naturally sweet finish on the palate. Hue’s team is also trained by TeaCha’s dedicated tea sommelier to ensure each pot is made with precision and reverence to the beverage’s healing attributes.

Dine with ease of mind, Hue also features two private dining rooms, which each cater up to 12 diners. Groups of eight or more are able to book in advance (subject to availability) to dine in one of these private dining rooms without a minimum spend.

New Dishes and Cocktails at Ruam Thai Bar & Eatery

From Drinks, to Appetisers, to Craveable Desserts, Ruam Gets a Flavour Injection

Ruam, Hong Kong’s popular Thai bar and eatery has bolstered its craveable menu of Thai market favourites, with all-new, creative drinks and dishes.

 

Making the most of the cold weather catch, Pla Muk (HK$98) fried squid tentacles with green peppercorns, tamarind and chilli sauce joins the menu alongside made-from-scratch Tod Man Plafish cakes (HK$88) seasoned with red curry and kaffir.
