Maine Sea Urchins are close relatives to the Hokkaido Sea Urchins found off the shores of Hokkaido, Japan. Petite in size, this Bafun Uni produce small tongues with crisp, concentrated flavor. Sea Urchin is highly prized throughout Japan, with the vast majority of Maine’s production exported weekly to Toyosu market. Luckily, before that step, Regalis reserves a portion of the finest trays to be kept stateside. Fresh shipments are sent to us daily, ensuring that ours are the top quality available.
Uni has a deep, buttery flavor packed with umami, and luscious texture that melts onto your palate. All of this is layered atop a brisk, invigorating fragrance of the ocean, leading many to describe eating uni as experiencing the very essence of the sea.
