This is our second year visiting Boothbay Harbor, Maine. We were just about done in with steamed and fried seafood and ready for something different. We happened onto “Mine Oyster” in the heart of Boothbay hoping to eat great oysters. The staff at Mine Oyster is most welcoming. The oysters and meals on the main menu are different, but we were really in for some wonderful surprises exploring off-menu creations. Sushi Chef Harrison Maung led us on marvelous sushi adventures. Having eaten sushi at many fine restaurants in Washington, DC, the sushi Harrison created was absolutely amazing.
Chef Harrison prides himself on creating perfect sushi with exciting, new food combinations.
He especially loves to serve guests who are willing to experience his beautiful creations.
For example, for lunch we dined on a sushi topped with banana, apple syrup and nuts. A desert sushi was wrapped with Honey Dew melon, topped with a grape half and shaved coconut .
We had such a lovely lunch experience that we canceled reservations at another BBH restaurant to spend more time with Chef Harrison at Mine Oyster. Dinner included a ginger salad, lobster and cream cheese sushi wrapped in filet mignon and paired with another Maung creation of salmon sushi that was most different than any sushi we have ever eaten. Dessert was a banana cream delicacy and our evening was topped with a special Burmese sweet tea.
If you ever vacation in BoothBay, please stop at Mine Oyster to meet Chef Harrison Maung.
If the restaurant is not busy and you are game, we are sure he will love to introduce you to his newest sushi creations. Trust us, you will not be disappointed.
