Moving on to the entrees, we started with the Atlantic Bigeye Tuna, served medium rare with Caramelized Pork Belly, Pickled Carrot Salad, Squash, and Ginger Soy Broth. If I had to request a last meal, this would be it. Wow! The tuna was seared perfectly; absorbing the ginger soy broth and tasting of the ocean. And when I bit into the crispy caramelized pork belly, I think I shed a tear. The intensity and boldness of the flavors were surreal and totally challenged my palate with its land and sea pairing. Well done!
