Where Can I Buy Sea Urchin Roe (Uni)?

jwyfrancis | Feb 8, 2010 09:23 PM

I love uni, I can't get enough of it. Uni is my crack/cocaine, and I am seriously addicted to it. But I live very far from Uwajimaya, and since I have a little one to care for, it's hard to drive there whenever my craving hits. Is there any uni-savvy-Chowhounder in this region who could point me in the right direction? I live in Issaquah. I'd be thrilled if I could somehow get it at wholesale price. I looked online, and it looks like I might be able to get my paws on a frozen 5 lb block. How are the frozen ones compared to the quality served at sushi restaurants?

Maybe I'll just gorge on tons of uni one day, and try to get sick on it. Maybe then, I'll be cured of this costly and inconvenient addiction. Thanks in advance for any help.
