Maruhide Uni Club (Torrance, CA)

Uni and Ikura bowl

Maruhide Uni Club is THE place to go for your sea urchin desires.  Everything here has some uni in it, even the soy sauce/salad/soup is uni infused.  Needless to say, if you don’t like uni this isn’t the place for you.

Each dish is priced around $18 to $30 and with very generous portions.  There’s usually a wait as they get pretty busy during the normal dinner hours, but it’s well worth it as there’s nothing around town quite like it.  The uni and ikura bowl was straight up heavenly. One of my death row requests right here for sure.  The buttery uni with the salty ikura and fresh vegetables make this a well balanced and delicious meal.  Maruhide also sells fresh uni by the box for around $8 and $42 for the large box.

If you want to make excellent uni at home, you will just need some rice wine vinegar, sushi rice, dried seaweed, and uni.  Mix a few tablespoons of rice wine vinegar to the cooked sushi rice and COOL to room temperature.  Roll up the rice with a strip of seaweed, seal with a single rice, then add the uni on top.  Dankness.
