We’re often told not to overindulge in raw seafood to avoid getting sick from the germs and toxins we cannot see. What if there is a way to purify the fruits of the sea? Sheung Wan seafood restaurant Table – Ingredient Based Cuisine is the first in Hong Kong to use a depuration system — essentially a “spa” for the seafood — to clean out their bodies while keeping them alive. This process encourages a natural expulsion of intestinal contents, which means cleaner flavours and purer ingredients for you gourmands. What’s more, the restaurant has 50 per cent off oysters (all depurated, of course) on Thursdays, which means you can enjoy Aussie and African oysters for just $18 each, and No.1 Gillardeau and other French oysters for $34 each. Are you on your way there yet?
