On a recent hot, hazy day on the peninsula, I met a friend at Amen Street for a cool afternoon glass of Sauvignon Blanc or two after work. It wasn’t long before we decided to dabble in Amen’s Raw Bar selections.
The menu obviously offers Amen’s famed oysters, but also presents some non-shellfish options. On this warm afternoon, we thought a plate of Tuna Carpaccio would be our best choice. And right we were.
The presentation was bright and colorful. The dish was light and delicious. Capers and shallots accented the tuna with a salty, crunchy punch. An herby drizzle of oil made the perfect dressing for our dish. Although the dish is sized for sharing, we could have each enjoyed our own plate.
The Tuna Carpaccio cures the happy hour munchies but also makes a great pre-dinner treat. If you’re feeling extra dangerous, order the Crudo Plate, which serves up a different raw selection each day.
We’ll be back for more.
