houston chowhound in town with 24 hours left. trying to track down a restaurant with live sea urchin. called swan oyster depot and they don't have them in today. any good leads? staying at fairmont ghiradelli square.
we're going to yank sing for lunch today to try their XLB and would like to spend the rest of the day food crawling for good SF eats. any recs?
I've had good uni at Yoshi's in Oakland, you might call Yoshi's in SF
Blowfish usually has a wide variety, even if I'm not in love with their fish generally
Sorry about the rainy day, enjoy your eating.
Udupi Palace for more authentic dosa and Dosa for a more yuppie dosa. They are right next to each other, so you can decide what works for you. Open until 10:30-11.
Poc Chuc for Yucatecan. You'll have to search the boards for truck recs. I eat at trucks, but they tend to blur together after awhile. Also in the Mission, there is Bi-Rite Creamery and Humphrey Slocombe for ice cream. Across the street from Bi-Rite is Pizzeria Delfina. If available, their cauliflower is like vegetable crack.

You could try Koo or Sebo. It's around, but you may need to call a handful of places before you track it down.
Probably too late for you, but Live Sushi Bar usually has live uni. and yes, they scoop them out right there.
I had some at Zushi Puzzle about 6 months ago. Probably not a WHOLE lot of help, but at least some sort of lead.
The San Francisco Fish Company in the Ferry Building has had live uni most of the times that I've checked.
