NYC | Uni Bisque

Wednesday, August 22, 2012 0 No tags Permalink 0

It’s like we’re going down the uni rabbit hole.

At Mihoko’s 21 Grams they’re doing a Santa Barbara Uni Bisque.

This comes to the table first. Uni custard topped with cuttlefish and whole uni tongues. A bit of lemon and fennel.

Then the waiter pours in a hot uni bisque tableside.

So really, Uni x 3. Custard, tongues, and bisque!

Uni appears in two other places on the menu. Served straight with

seaweed butter, crème fraiche, and toast. And then in the (non-traditional) sushi part of the menu.

Here it is served as a shrimp ceviche, cilantro, and avocado roll….and a dollop (about a half-tongue) of uni to top.

Love the tableware at Mihoko’s. Small things like this glass bottle filled with white shoyu…

…the tea set (drinking a gyokuro)…

…and a tiny origami crane which accompanied…

…the mignardise.
