Buffalo Bucket List Challenge: Try Uni


Updated June 2018

Getting healthy, nailing that promotion, sorting our your finances – they’re all respectable resolutions. But frankly, they’re boring af, which is why we here at Step Out Buffalo are challenging you to really step out of your comfort zone with the Buffalo Bucket List Challenge. We know it can be difficult to constantly come up with new and exciting ways to enjoy your time here on planet earth, and more specifically Western New York, so we’re doing the work for you. Every Wednesday this year we’ll publish a new Buffalo Bucket List Challenge post with a fun / interesting / exciting / unique “task” to try.

 

Week 12: Try Uni

If you consider yourself an adventurous eater and have yet to try uni aka sea urchin, move it to the top of your list.  Don’t worry the part you actually eat looks absolutely nothing like the black, spiky body you’re probably most familiar with. It actually looks like a light orange paste that’s creamy in texture. Considered a delicacy in the food world, it’s worth giving this briny treat a chance before judging. We’re lucky enough to have a pretty wide variety of sushi restaurants here in Buffalo that serve it!  Try uni at any of the 7 locations listed below.
