Yep, it's not for everyone. But for those who know how delicious Uni is, this close-up should make your mouth water. You can see the texture, which although looks like your tongue, it just melts in your mouth like butter. It's almost always on our specials board so just holler it out to our awesome sushi chefs and they'll whip up a few orders for you. It definitely goes well with one of our premium sakes. If you ever need help deciding on a sake pairing, don't hesitate to ask our servers or our chefs (if they're not too busy) for an appropriate sake that will best suit your liking.
If you've never tried Uni (sea urchin), you're missing out. It's so deliciously rich and flavorful. It's decadent. It's hard for some people to get over the texture or the appearance but it's definitely worth it. But be careful, you will get hooked once you really enjoy it. Come on by and try it out. Our sushi chefs will walk you through it. If you already love uni, then you know what we're talking about. Just drool over this picture cause it's a good one.
Every time we eat sushi, we have to have at least one order of Uni, otherwise known as Sea Urchin. While it is not for everyone, it is recommended that you try it at least once, if you truly love sushi. It's like a firm custard, but it is very rich and buttery. A common misconception about uni is that it is actually the roe of the Sea Urchin. In fact, the Uni that we eat in sushi consists of the gonads of Sea Urchins. The gonads produce the roe for this prickly sea creature. There you go. You learned something today. Now order a couple of orders for yourself. You deserve it.
