Amazing Restaurant in Japan Serves Possibly the BEST Uni in the World

On the Japanese island of Hokkaido are two restaurants named Uni Murakami in the cities of Hakodate and Sapporo. The restaurants specialize in Uni (sea urchin) dishes — and they are possibly the best in the world.

Uni Murakami is operated directly by a sea urchin processing plant founded in 1954. It’s been one of the primary vendors of uni at Japan’s famous Tsukiji Market for over 50 years.
