Sea Urchin Sushi

When you visit our Bellevue Japanese restaurant, don’t miss the opportunity of trying the fine delicacy that the Japanese call uni sushi. This is a type of nigiri sushi made from the edible part of the sea urchin. Fans of this kind of sushi appreciate it for the creamy consistency and light, sweet taste. It is for these reasons that uni is in such high demand throughout the sushi world.

The topping on uni sushi is often identified as the sea urchin’s caviar. However, it is actually the organs that produce the eggs or milt. Because of this, uni is sometimes considered to be an aphrodisiac. Though there might not be any real scientific support for this claim, it stands that uni is a rare and delightful treat for the avid sushi lover. Try it out for yourself at Flo Restaurant!
