Collection: Premium Grade Uni
What is Uni?
Uni is actually the gonads (reproductive organs) of the sea urchin. There are close to a thousand varieties of sea urchins but we only harvest several of them for Uni consumption. Each sea urchin only has 5 Uni hence making it a prized possession only to rival pure Japanese Wagyu in prices.
The Bafun Uni is generally available all year round. However, we do bring in Murasaki Uni when it is in season.
Bafun compared to Murasaki, is generally sweeter with an orange to red hue.
Murasaki carries a stronger ocean brine, is larger in size and creamier.
Although rather unheard of, the American Green Uni is gaining popularity amongst Uni lovers in Singapore in recent months. These oceanic gems thrive in the east coast of North America and are still relatively lower priced compared to Japanese Uni due to its underrated status.
The American Green is yellow in colour with a similar taste profile to the Japanese Murasaki, yet sweeter.
