Online seafood and sashimi grocer Oosterbay has opened its own uni (Japanese for sea urchin)-centric casual restaurant.
Called Uni Gallery, the 40-seater serves uni-infused dishes such as Uni Aglio Olio ($28), Uni Oyster Shot ($25; pictured below) and the decadent Uni Bomb ($99) that has four types of seasonal uni paired with a shot of Japanese gin or sake.
Uni supplies are flown in from Japan, US and Canada every two to three days and the restaurant typically has around four types of uni at any one time.
You can also order uni ala carte, including the usual Bafun and Murasaki varieties ($30 a portion), or have it sashimi platter-style with the Uni Tokusen Sashimi (from $38; pictured above), a selection of Canadian Aka uni and six types of sashimi like otoro (tuna belly) and botan shrimp.
