We at the B-Town Blog give a hearty “seafood, deli and caterer” welcome to our newest advertiser, Alefaio’s Seafood Market & Polynesian Deli.

They are just a door or two down from the southeast corner of the intersection of SW 136th Street and Ambaum Blvd SW, a few blocks east of Seahurst Park, in north Burien.

Alefaio’s can be  considered the lead ship on the bountiful waters of Burien’s top seafood markets.

David and Fina Alefaio have been in business for over three decades, and are soon to celebrate their second year in their current location.

Keep Alefaio’s in mind for their expert catering services – from family reunions, to corporate conferences to wedding receptions, they provide an authentic one-of-a-kind “Luau-style” catering experience.

Check the reader board inside for their carryout lunch and dinner menus and specials.

“We sell just about everything here,” says David.

No kidding. In addition to imported canned goods and a wide assortment of vegetables, here is a short list of what you can find:David Alefaio, right, prepares to 'Toss the Octopus' at Alefaio’s Seafood Market & Polynesian Deli in north Burien.

  • Indian Mackerel
  • Spiny Gobyfish
  • Farm raised Riverbank Fish from Viet Nam
  • Calamari
  • Cassava from Fiji
  • Taro from several Pacific Ocean treasure troves

And don’t forget the octopus. You can buy it in frozen form at Alefaio’s.

“Our octopus comes from the waters between here and Hawaii,” David Alefaio says. “They come with all eight tentacles.”

He will be happy to coach you in the preparation of octopus and, for that matter, anything and everything his market offers.

“With octopus, boil it a little first,” he says. “Then sauté it with ginger, garlic, olive oil and green onions.”

    Alefaio Grocery is closed now. The owner is still do catering. It was nice when they first opened up. The store went really well in the beginning. Good cooks, then they hired new cooks and it wasn’t the same after that. Economy wasn’t doing well and the prices kept going up weekly Too pricey.
