Seafood from Venus

Steamed Tomales Bay Mussels @ Venus Restaurant, Berkeley

Absolutely mouth watering and I love the spicy and flavourful coconut curry!  The curry beats the relatively mild ones I have had in Thai restaurants. The day I had this was also the day I learnt of the existence and wonders of fennel and trumpet mushrooms.

Pan Seared Albacore Tuna

Frankly a vast disappointment but thankfully this was not my actual dish. The tuna was rather bland and dry, and that should not be the case for a dish carrying its price tag. Seriously, just go for the mussels. Full stop.
