Angelakis Bros at Burnside Village will be home to a new high-end retail outlet from tomorrow with the addition of KIN Seafood’s first flagship, concept store selling premium Southern Bluefin Tuna from the cold, clean, green and pristine waters of the Southern Ocean.
Set to be popular with South Australian foodies, the KIN Seafood store a range of super-premium cuts of Southern Bluefin Tuna. The three premium cuts carry their traditional Japanese names: Akami, Chutoro and Otoro.
These products, which have traditionally been the exclusive province of specialist chefs, will also include contemporary products such as cured tuna heart – a luxury treat used to shave over pasta or flavour sauces; and mojama – a tuna-derived prosciutto that’s earned super-premium status among European foodies. These products are part of an approach to using the whole fish and minimising waste.
KIN’s establishment is due to the bold thinking of Blaslov Fishing’s Simoan Hayman and Craig Hughes, Dinko Tuna’s Lukina Lukin and Michael van Doorn, and the Stehr Group’s Marcus Stehr and Kylie Petherick. This new generation of tuna farmers aim to re-energise the industry for the longterm through sophisticated consumer-based business modelling and marketing.
KIN Director Simoan Hayman said we’re delighted to make the highest-grade Australian-caught Southern Bluefin Tuna, the most prestigious and luxurious fish money can buy, available to local consumers for the first-time.
“We’re aiming to create a unique experience for our customers when they visit our store, through beautifully presented products, informed and educated staff, and premium seafood that simply cannot be purchased anywhere else in Australia,” said Ms Hayman.
“Australian-caught Southern Bluefin Tuna is a super-premium seafood experience recognised around the world for its pure taste and texture. Its natural purity is born from the environmental attributes of its source – the cold, clean, green and pristine waters of the Southern Ocean – the same waters that yield world class Southern Rock Lobster, Abalone, Prawns and Oysters.
“Southern Bluefin Tuna isn’t only melt-in-your-mouth-delicious but has significant health benefits that have been well researched. It’s a fantastic source of omega 3 fatty acids (‘good fats’), B complex vitamins, potassium, iodine, and magnesium, zinc, vitamin C and selenium.”
The KIN store is located within the new Angelakis store at Burnside Village Store 60/447 Portrush Rd, Glenside SA 5065.
