Maruhide Uni Club | South Bay | Japanese | Restaurant
Loading...
Located in a Torrance strip mall, Maruhide Uni Club has become a beacon for the uni-infatuated bargain hunter: Whether you're looking to spend $13 or $130, its sole purpose is to fill you with as much uni as possible. Maruhide's menu is fairly straightforward. You're there for a bowl of rice topped with uni — mounds and mounds of the stuff. All kinds of accompaniments might also be in this chirashi bowl. You can get an uni bowl with scallops, or one with salmon and yellowtail. You can get a Nigiyaka bowl, the most complex of the lot; in it, your huge assemblage of uni will be surrounded by raw tuna and salmon, salmon roe, a sweet cold uni tamago, sea cucumber, boiled uni, and squid marinated in uni. Or you can go purist and get a straight-up sea urchin bowl. Uni on top of uni with some extra uni thrown in.

    Years have gone by, but I still can't forget my first taste of uni: It was creamy, ripe, a mineral tang paired with something like soft, smelly cheese but imbued with the saline and fishy soul of the sea. I was horrified. In retrospect, the uni in question, which was...
