WHAT'S UP WITH THIS UNI CRAZE?

If you've been seeing #foodporn posts on social media about uni in all forms, and wondering what the heck is going on or how to eat it, don't worry, you are not alone. Besides the fortunate ones who've tried it while traveling or dining out at higher-end Japanese restaurants, this is a relatively new seafood item for most Singaporeans. 

So what is uni? Uni is the sea urchin's gonads (organ producing milt/ roe). When placed in your mouth, it is best described as a creamy pillow of ocean that melts, leaving an aftertaste like no other. 

The most popular way to have uni is to have it raw, embellished with all your favourite things like in our featured picture (courtesy of our customer, Abi)  above. 

But, if you want to go one step further to cook uni, go ahead and try them! Here are some ideas.

1. Uni Omelette Rice

Top your porridge off with uni and some garnishing, akin to having salted egg with porridge, only creamier and more "oceany"!

3. Uni Chawanmushi

Great Quality / Quantity for the Price

Excellent product, will be back

Korean Oyster

It's super good! I cooked Teow Chew Style Oyster porridge with the oysters.

tender and succulent!

This is my first time buying from here and after trying wild cod, I think it will be hard to go back to farmed ones. In terms of texture, the meat is just much more tender and filled with the fish's good fats. Of course the nutrients are also better.

Charcoal Fish Otah Pocket Bun

Bun is soft and easy to eat, otah flavour is just right!

Happy & Satisfied with my orders.

Liked the individual vacuum pack of the fish that make it easy to store & to take out the portions that you require. The sockeye salmon delivers a strong & rich flavour. The flesh of the sockeye salmon is thinner as compared to king salmon. Personally liked the sockeye salmon. Pan fried the sockeye salmon with a little bit of salt, pepper & cover it with melting cheese. It tasted so yummy. Have proceeded to place my 2nd order.
