The first time I encountered the delicious Uni was in Los Angeles in 2006. Toshi my executive sushi chef instructor served Uni to me like a piece of nigiri.
The velvet and delicate flavor melted in my mouth. I will never forget and have since then eaten it several times in both the US and Japan.
In Japan, the Japanese sushi restaurants buy Uni at the Tsukiji Fish Market. Here you will find a seller who is only specialized in Uni who sells it in many different qualities and price levels.
It is incredibly difficult to describe the taste of Uni as it is so unique in its taste and consistency. To get it served as a piece of sushi nigiri will not be the last time for me.
