Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Alefaio's Market & Deli!
We at the B-Town Blog give a hearty â€œseafood, deli and catererâ€ welcome to our newest advertiser, Alefaioâ€™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.
Alefaioâ€™s can beÂ considered the lead ship on the bountiful waters of Burienâ€™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 Alefaioâ€™s in mind for their expert catering services â€“ from family reunions, to corporate conferences to wedding receptions, they provide an authentic one-of-a-kind â€œLuau-styleâ€ catering experience.
Check the reader board inside for their carryout lunch and dinner menus and specials.
â€œWe sell just about everything here,â€ 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:
- Indian Mackerel
- Spiny Gobyfish
- Farm raised Riverbank Fish from Viet Nam
- Cassava from Fiji
- Taro from several Pacific Ocean treasure troves
And donâ€™t forget the octopus. You can buy it in frozen form at Alefaioâ€™s.
â€œOur octopus comes from the waters between here and Hawaii,â€ David Alefaio says. â€œThey come with all eight tentacles.â€
He will be happy to coach you in the preparation of octopus and, for that matter, anything and everything his market offers.
â€œWith octopus, boil it a little first,â€ he says. â€œThen sautÃ© it with ginger, garlic, olive oil and green onions.â€
Alefaioâ€™s Seafood Market & Polynesian Deli (and catering) is open seven days a week, 9am to 8pm, and is located at (map below):
