It’s a seafood law that any restaurant selling seafood should be named after a sea creature. One place that has heeded to this naming convention is Blowfish Restaurant. The second rule is that it needs to be next to the actual ocean, and at Blowfish the fish literally jump out of the ocean and land on your plate, as long as you have a Groupon that is: Get a 20-piece sushi platter for only R110 as well as a 4 star John Platter rated bottle of wine.
Positioned perfectly in Table Bay with Table Mountain directly in sight, Blowfish Restaurant is more than a restaurant – it’s an all-round sensory experience. The combination of fresh sea scent, fresh ocean breeze and the freshest seafood flavours around is enough to distract anyone from the beautiful sunsets. Wrap your lips around a divine selection of flavours put together on a sushi platter: 3 fashion sandwiches, 4 rainbow rolls, 3 salmon roses, 6 tuna maki, 2 salmon sashimi and 2 tuna sashimi.
Enjoy a 4 star John Platter rated bottle of wine while savouring your sushi in this relaxed yet stylish establishment and take in the breathtaking views spread out before you. This atmosphere is a perfect testament to the true style of the blowfish: Swimming along, giving people the impression that it’s just a beautiful small fish and then BAM! It blows up to triple its size. This is much like the atmosphere at Blowfish. From the outside it may seem like just another seafood restaurant spotted along the coast, but once you’re inside you’ll be transported to an underwater world of magic and sensory explosion.
If you break out in song at the mere taste of their seafood then do not fear, the waiters nor the fish in front of you will judge. However the person you’re sharing the platter with might raise an eyebrow or two. Just for the record though “under the sea” can be sung as a duet.
Sushi fact: Call centre workers in Mozambique are not allowed to eat anything other than sushi during their lunch break. This is because all the call centres in Mozambique are owned by sushi chefs. Everything from the telephones to the erasers are shaped like maki.
