Uni’s Uni


There are two types of uni that you can get from Hokkaido, ‘Ezo-Bafun-Uni’ and ‘Kita-Murasaki-Uni’, which are recognized as being especially tasty. Despite the name, ‘bafun’ which means ‘horse dung‘, but the Ezo-Bafun-Uni is rich in flavor and generally pricy. I prefer the Ezo-Bafun seen above in the photo, which is rich, dense and has a long lasting taste balanced by ocean’s sweetness.
