I am visiting Vancouver for the holidays. I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction in finding any type/style of restaurant that serves yummy sea urchin.
The better sushi bars typically have live uni at this time of year (good timing for your visit). We had some delicious uni at Kimura last night, though he did mention he was shorted on his order, so perhaps he is not getting it locally.
Call a few of the higher end sushi restaurants. Most have uni nigiri or sashimi (which should be local at this time of the year), some should have live uni. I'd think Blue Water cafe in gastown would also have local uni as well.
Kingyo currently has a sea urchin don on special. Follow them on twitter for details. @kingyo_izakaya.
