To excite the palate a little more, UNI gallery also serves up uni in several creative ways. The restaurant's signature Uni Bomb presents three types of uni served three ways and finished with a shot of Japanese gin or sake. Each variety is paired with ingredients to enhance or create a unique balance of flavours. For example, sweet King crab meat complements the briny Canadian Aka uni.
Other non-traditional dishes include Uni Aglio Olio, Uni Oyster Shot, Uni Onsen Tamago, Uni Tempura and, our personal favourite, Uni Maki (Canadian Aka uni, Tobiko and tamago atop a snow crab and cucumber roll) – all sure to be crowd pleasers.
If you're going with non-uni fans, there are also the usual Japanese restaurant favourites like Chirashi Don, Cha Soba, Donburis, lots of sushi and more.
