One more for the Uni Files.
My doctor was nice enough to warn me about the cholesterol levels of uni…so may we have to lighten things up for a bit. But until then…
…an Uni Sandwich!!! This one is from Aldea on 17th Street.
Sullivan Street bread, toasted and layered with heirloom tomatoes, uni (about six Santa Barbara tongues on each half), and chopped shiso.
Fairly perfect? For sure.
To balance things out. A little lick of the tomato gazpacho with ricotta…
…and this salad of baby lettuces, beets and radishes, Idiazábal cheese, and a spiced port vinaigrette. Don’t miss the Sonhos (“little dreams”) for dessert.
