It’s been a while since I tried out O-Ku, so a friend and I decided to go back and check out their dinner menu for the purposes of a review (my previous review only covered their lunch selections). We had a veritable sushi feast, which I would happily repeat anytime, if anyone would like to go with me (and pay, of course).

The first thing they brought out was the Poké (diced salmon, tuna, Hamachi, Asian pear, mango, seaweed salad, dandash, $14). It was really refreshing and the kind of thing that is perfect for snacking on in the summer.

At first thought many people would associate oysters with restaurants or family gatherings and nights around a fire with bottles of hot sauce everywhere. But to see the journey oysters take to get to your mouth is something that will change your perspective on them entirely.

The South Carolina Aquarium recently invited me to join them in a project which required me to wear boots, sunscreen, and "protective clothes" so of course, I accepted the invitation. I listened closely to the weather forecast and assumed the event would be canceled...
