Good Blue / by shane eaton

eco-friendly fish :: €15 for bowl and beer

Good Blue is a healthy fast food fish restaurant in Via Volta in Moscova. The opening was a couple weeks ago and I got the chance to talk with Maia Moratti about her new project.

Maia told me that Good Blue aims to provide a 'sustainable' gastronomic experience, providing healthy and gourmet fish dishes, while adhering to environmentally friendly practices throughout. Good Blue sources only fish caught with sustainable fishing, and is the first restaurant in Milano to be plastic free, both in terms of food packaging and restaurant interior. Most of the furniture is made of recycled plastic and even recycled sponges, which turn out it to be very comfortable as seats!  

Good Blue's menu is mainly focused on poke and rice bowls, the hot trend which has now arrived in Milano. However I must admit that other than Botanical Club, I've been disappointed with the poke I've tried around the city, either being made with sad rice or odd ingredient combinations.

I'm happy to report that Botanical Club now has some stiff competition - Good Blue's "Rosso e Tonno" with red rice, tuna, olives, lentils, flax seed, songino, seaweed and tomatoes is my new favorite bowl in Milano. The salmon poke is also delicious!

In addition to bowls, you will also find tasty tacos, with the highlights being the taco with tuna or shrimp. Good Blue also offers aguachiles, a type of Mexican ceviche classically made with fresh raw fish, cucumber, red onion, lime juice, and chilies that have been mellowed with water. At Good Blue they offer four great recipes for aguachiles, with either sea bass, kingfish, tuna or vegan.

For dessert, order the semifreddo with lime and celery. Although it sounds odd, the flavor combination is phenomenal.

I urge all foodies to check out Good Blue for an easy, healthy and environmentally conscious meal.
