When I visited Aquagrill, I ordered one of the restaurant’s most notable dishes. The Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass was served with Korean Kimchi and string beans steeped in a generous wasabi-miso sauce, which made for a breathtaking meal. The aroma of the dish greeted me before it became visible. Once set before me on the table, I could see that the miso-glazed Chilean sea bass was perfectly cooked.
Everything on the plate was truly captivating and mouth-watering. The choice of sauces and spices truly ignited the dish, and everything including the silky and buttery fish texture, the nutty and truffle-flavored sauce, and the white pickled kimchee were incredible.
The made-to-order fish melted in my mouth and left me wanting more. Without praising the dish too much, I’d bargain that the that the triumphantly delicious sea bass is the most excellent dish at Aquagrill. The fresh, sweet and appealing dish was also paired nicely with the fresh oyster and clam raw bar selection, which was beyond exception. The oysters were served over a bed of ice and oyster chefs shucked the fine fleet of oysters, dripping with a delicious briny liquid.
