So… there’s something I need to tell you… and you may judge me just a bit for it. I am not a big sushi person. I know, I know NOT normal BUT I am open to eating sushi on occasion. Sushi outings were never a big part of my life until I started dating the boyfriend. He absolutely loves sushi and could eat it every single night if he had it his way.

To mix it up and to celebrate our last night in Boca, we decided to have South East Asian food. Just five minutes away, lay a restaurant called The Sea. It’s supposedly one of the best in town but we had to taste it in order to believe it. What initially sold me was that there was not only sushi but a variety of asian food – think, pad thai, dumplings, edamame etc.

We started off with Aji Tuna Pizza and oh my goodness I have never had anything like it! Topped with Aji Tuna, cilantro, avocado, wasabi mayo on a baked tortilla – this pie was was really amazing. It was light and crispy, a perfect meal to share with everyone. I’m a big mayo fan so the drizzled wasabi mayo was the ideal touch. The presentation was wonderful too – sprinkled onions and green herbs made the pizza that much better.

I loved the vibe of the restaurant. Wooden chairs, wooden tables and romantic decor with very cool light fixtures surrounded the entire scene. The windows were all open to let in the warm Florida breeze and blue curtains draped down the sides to make it more of a comfortable feel.

Just like the Aji Tuna Pizza, the sushi presentation was very impressive. We ordered Salmon Avocado Rolls (pictures to the left) and Tuna Tataki rolls (pictures to the right). The rice was perfectly salted and just the right amount of sticky which made it really enjoyable.  The seared tuna and the salmon were really fresh and smooth too. Overall, the dish was gone in two seconds… and I had more than half of it!

The Thai Spring Pork Dumplings were mmhmm good. I am a big dumplings fan so I tend to always add some sort of meat to the meal order. The steamed pork dumplings were served with a sweet soy reduction which was really yummy.

And the best for last – the Berry Berry Sake Martini. I have never had a martini with sake so this was new to me but oh so delicious! It didn’t have that strong gin after taste which paired nicely with the asian food. The menu had an extensive list of martini’s, but the berry berry seemed perfect for me because the blackberries and blueberries seeped straight to the bottom of the glass.

Restaurants and food experiences can really make a trip. This particular trip was filled with amazing food, unforgettable experiences and wonderful company to top it all off. If you ever make it down to Boca, make sure to make your way to The Sea, it’s truly worth it.
