Christy's First Uni

I was just watching the Tokyo episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations," and during the sushi bit I had a revelation.

Most of what I ate when I had omakase for breakfast at Tsukiji Fish Market I could not identify. Today I identified one of the items: Uni.

Also known as Sea Urchin gonads.

At the time I found it to be a surprising consistency. Odd. Yellow. Creamy. It was the only thing I came close to not liking, but I would definitely try it again if given the opportunity.

Possibly gonads just aren't a 7am food.
