Exotic Uni Experience

Have you ever had the freshest Uni ever??? Yes, you heard me, freshest uni!


If you've ever enjoyed the fine diversity of Japanese cuisine, and are a serious sushi connoisseur, you have probably experienced the singular love of uni-a type of sushi made from the gonads of a sea urchinIt is an acquired taste and when you eat live uni, it brings the experience to another level!

Apparently, Uni has a "euphoria-causing chemical" ingredient similar to what you find in cannabis! Yes, pot, marijuana, etc. (Interesting!!!)

At Tomokatsu in Burlingame, you get to experience the freshest live uni you can find.

In addition, Tomokatsu has other great food that you don’t normally see at other Japanese restaurant…such as crab porridge, which is one of our favorites as well.
