Vancouver - Uni?
- Pollo Apr 2, 2007 09:01 PM
Does anyone know where you can buy "uni"....fresh, out of the shell...traditionally packaged in the wood trays? I have been to just about all of the seafood stores in Greater Vancouver and either they do not have it or it's well past it's prime. I'm looking for either a sushi supply outlet or a processing facility that would sell "out the door"....
Have you tried http://www.fujiya.ca/
Note different locations I'm referring to the Cark/Venables store-tried to add a pic but no go-this format is a POS.
I have seen it there but since I find Uni altogether too rich have never bought it.
I may be in that 'hood tomorrow for lunch if so I'll ask about it.
Try Angel Seafood: Angel Seafood it's known as the place for "One-stop-shopping for many Japanese restaurants (including Tojo's)". It's basically a wholesale business but has a storefront open to the public, so don't think you're at the wrong place when you go there. If there's fresh uni to be bought, they'll have it here. 1345 Grant St., East Side, 604-254-2824
