Uni Gallery @ The Plaza
If you’ve ever been to Japan, you probably wouldn’t argue with me when I say ANYWHERE you dine in Japan will ensure a pleasant and satisfying experience. The service is great, the dishes taste amazing and the amount of meticulous care the Japanese people put into their craft is out of this world. My favorite place for food was none other than the bustling restaurants of Tsukiji Fish Market . After my experience with Uni Gallery earlier last night, it’s safe to say that I don’t have to travel so far for that taste anymore.
Don’t be alarmed when you flip open the menu. The prices are not going to be your usual Cafe & Bistro type of fare. We are dealing with Uni here. They are hard to harvest and each uni yields extremely small portions of the delectable meat. Also, it is highly recommended that to appreciate the full flavor of the uni, it must be eaten within 24 hours of harvest.
Uni Gallery serves non uni related dishes as well but nahhhhh. I went there for the sole purpose of their uni recommendations!
Uni Shutou Original, $32
Using soy sauce to marinate the uni brings out the strong umami flavours and provides a harmonious blend of different tastes. Love the whole make your own uni roll concept!
Uni Oyster Shot, $25
If you ask me, this is definitely the winner of the night. When you scoop all the ingredients into your mouth and take a bite, the taste of the sea literally hits you like a wave. The plethora of flavours exploding from the oyster and ikura roe itself targets every inch of your million taste buds. Throw in the sweet and creamy notes of the fresh uni and wow. That’s what a #foodgasm feels like.
Uni Chirashi Don, $49
Jason, the owner of Uni Gallery assured me that for the price, I would be getting the best value as they’re very generous with the uni. True to his word, there were numerous streaks of the delectable uni flesh layered on top of fragrant Japanese rice. Could have been a little more generous with the rice though but other than that, no complaints!
Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?
Some would stare aghast at the exorbitant prices. Some would not. Let’s talk about overall value in correlation to price then. You’re receiving premium grade uni and you won’t have to splurge on an air ticket to Japan to do so. What’s more, Uni Gallery is very generous with their portions of uni! I’ll definitely be back for sure!
