Best uni dishes from Singapore’s top restaurants

This spiny, spherical produce, usually imported from Japan, is sought-after by chefs. Below, the top restaurants in Singapore to enjoy this orange delicacy.

  • Sushi Kimura

    In a temple-like calm setting, master chef Tomoo Kimura quietly focuses his attention on the last course: the signature bakudan rice bowl. He pours a mixture of uni, ikura, chopped toro and Japanese organic onsen eggs over small bowls of rice and serves them to his guests. The soft and slightly chewy rice grains (Tsuya-hime organic rice from a family farm in Yamagata prefecture cooked with Hokkaido spring water) mingle with the lightly whisked egg from herb-fed chickens, and the richness of the golden orange uni. The chef brings in different types of uni depending on the season and availability. The restaurant normally uses bafun (short spike) or murasaki (long spike). “Aka uni (red ones) have very short season and the best quality is very hard to find,” says the chef.
