Back way back when I saw an ad for an uni focused dinner hosted by Louro in conjunction with Underground Eats. At $93 per person, I thought it was reasonable since uni is a very expensive ingredient. I think it's more about demand over supply but that's a whole other type of blog post that you'll probably never find here. Anyway, I purchased tickets for both Mr. M&P and I. When we arrived that night, we unexpectedly bumped into TT and CT as well. I should have known they would also participate since they are uni fans as well. After a bit of chatting, I found out that they purchased their tickets at $85 per person without going through Underground Eats. I thought that company sold only exclusive tickets to events. Now I know. And now they're defunct. Money aside, it was time to eat.
Next course was fluke tartare, uni foam, shiso, and tempura mizuna. The fluke tartare was hardly noticeable while the uni foam was more like a cream/aioli since it was dense and creamy. I didn't know where the shiso was but the tempura mizuna was really good. Freshly fried and crispy. Unfortunately, the uni wasn't the star of the dish again.
