I don’t know why Uni (Sea Urchin) intrigues me so. The aroma of Uni reminds me of my childhood –our old VCR in the 80’s in Winter Park, FL. It has like a smokey metallic taste that emanated from that early model VCR. Why I keep ordering it? I don’t know.
This time I tried a big bowl of Uni and Salmon Roe over rice ($22 at Robataya in the East Village). Sounds kind of awesome. It was really good for the first bites at least. Although, I don’t know why anyone would really want to that much Uni and Salmon Roe. I don’t love my old VCR that much. I finished it though.
