Sea urchin!

On Wednesday, me and Pete celebrated Restaurant Week at Nobu again. I got the sushi plate and he got the cod (it’s the same menu as previous RW). I also got an extra roll of tuna with asparagus. I wish the waiter had told me there was already tuna roll on my dish as I didn’t remember! Argh! Pete introduced me to a new roll, the sea urchin, which has become one of his favorite rolls. It’s a creamy consistency. It was interesting. I’m always up for trying new rolls and glad I tried this one but I probably won’t be ordering it again!

    I tried sea urchin when I was in Japan, and didn’t really like the taste, although the texture was luxurious! It still makes me want to each sushi now!

    What a coincidence, I’m writing up Nobu right now 😉 but we didn’t go for RW :T

    And I lurve sea urchin, but it’s especially good over cold soba with some salmon roe, you mix it altogether and it’s got this creamy briny taste to it, really good. Soba-koh does a really good version of that, if you’re interested!

    I tried sea urchin while in NYC a month ago. It definitely was interesting, but I don’t think I like the texture. I kept asking if it had been pureed or if that was its normal consistency!
