While on our trip to check on the Uni, this was one of the three brands that came highly recommended to us by the Uni specialist we work with! You can only find this on ZAIRYO.
250G per pack
Japanese farmed local Uni from Minami Chishima, grade A
NOW IN SEASON
Note: Unlike Murasaki Uni, the "uglier" or darker Aka/Bafun Uni is, the tastier. The prettier ones are usually from Canada and are processed a lot. We do not carry non-Japanese Uni.
Why is yours better?
We have been working with the vendors at Tsukiji Market for over 15 years now. Gaining access to the Uni auction just means that we get first dibs on the best quality Uni for the day at the best price range. Everything else then gets passed on to the Uni vendors at the Tsukiji Market and all around the world after the auction.
What grade is your Uni?
Grade A. Not all Uni get to be in the Uni auction, only Uni of Grade A gets into the auction.
Please note that packaging may change without prior notice.
Dec 2017: We have been informed by our partners at the Uni auction that there were several occasions that certain Uni companies can't send their Uni to the auction due to a snow storm around the islands and Hokkaido. During this time, our Uni specialists will pick an Uni that's of the same value / same quality / same rating and grade and replace it without any prior notice.
By order only; air-flown items will be flown in every Tuesdays & Fridays (unless otherwise stated), please place order at least 3 days prior to your preferred Tuesday/Friday.
