Roe, roe, roe your boat

    I’ve finally had it. Le pâté des mers. A sandy lustrous texture and a briny air of the ocean compactified in bright orange lobes.

    It’s my first time, at a sushi house in Berkeley in early May, so I’m not gonna pretend like I had the faintest idea about uni. I’m not sure if it’s raw or cooked, but from the taste alone it’s too seashore-breeze-like to be cooked. It could be a paste from a tube for all I know. But now it’s decided. Sea urchin roe? Count me in.

    Thanks to noodlepie for writing about it. Really helps if you know what to expect before you try, as always.

    Because 2 rolls can only fill up a sparrow, here’s more sushi:

    Address: Sushi Ko
    64 Shattuck Square
    Berkeley, California 94704
    (510) 845-6601

    Money matter: 1 uni (2 pieces) – $6.50 (not cheap, a normal 6-piece roll is $5.50-7.95)
    We also had sashimi here before.

    • We absolutely love sea urchin roe, too! Snap them up when you see them still in the pods, and let us know so we can get some, too.

      I’m still mourning the loss of Sushi Sho on Solano Ave. Aki-San was very exacting, and everything would always be delicious. As for uni- love it, love it, love it! I like mine with a green shiso leaf and a quail egg yolk.

      I know what you mean… I always feel at a loss when a favorite place closes down.
      And uni with shiso sounds delicious 🙂 Actually, I think I love all kinds of roe 😀
