A trip to Hokkaido means feasting on seafood, especially some of the best Uni (sea urchin gonads) the sea of Hakodate has to offer.
Uni Murikami Restaurant – Sapporo Branch specializes in Hokkaido sea urchin cuisine, serving the prized Kita Murasaki Uni.
Located in the basement of Nihon-Seimei Sapporo Building – a five minute walk from JR Sapporo station.
Reserve ahead to avoid long wait times.
The menu offers Uni and seafood prepared in a variety of methods: baked, fried, grilled, and served both cooked and raw.
Kita Murasaki Uni Don
Kita means north — Northern Murasaki Uni Don ricebowl is the star dish.
Note the freshness from the density in the gonad grains, the pronounced plumpness of the veins, and vibrancy in color.
Uni Ikura Don
A celebration of textures! The melting mouthfeel of uni pairs extremely well with the pop-in-the-mouth sensation of ikura.
Not to miss: is the uni gratin. Served in a sea urchin shell, local Hokkaido potatoes are smothered in a king crab white sauce, topped with sea urchin and baked. Decadently creamy, hot and smooth — indulgently perfect for a cold day.
