Urchin Roe, “Uni”
Out of stock
Uni is a wild product that makes its quality more unreliable than farmed. With the importation from Chile on hold due to COVID, we are looking to source from Canada. This new sourcing has not been up to par quality wise so it will remain out of stock until further notice. We will return to stock as soon as quality is consistent.

Our uni has a bright yellow to orange color, a sweet flavor, and a creamy texture. It is delicious raw!
