Menya Sakura's Third Anniversary Uni Tsukemen

Uni Tsukemen

When I saw the sign for this dish at Menya Sakura the other day, I had to do a double take. Uni tsukemen?? Weird; why ruin the delicate taste of uni with a salty greasy tsukemen broth? Well, I finally tried it today, and it worked. The broth itself was savory, which provided some wonderful contrast with the rich uni that I used as a chaser after each bite. I'm not sure if that's how this was supposed to be eaten (hopefully they weren't telling people to mix in the sea urchin), but this was the best way that I could figure out on how to make the most of it.
