UNI Gallery by OosterBay @ The Plaza - Experience The New 'Uni Ultima Kaiseki' With Premium Uni In Every Single Dish


Uni-specialist sashimi restaurant, UNI Gallery by Oosterbay launched a new set course menu, the 'Uni Ultima Kaiseki', following last year's 'Multiple Foodgasm Kaiseki' which proved to be a hit among diners. The new kaiseki is available in 5 or 7 courses (from $128++ per course). Besides using premium uni in every single dish of the course, the innovative dishes are also fused with delicacies from traditional Chinese, Italian and even Peranakan cuisines.

Uni Pitan Tofu 4.5/5

To start off the course, we had the Uni Pitan Tofu. A perennial favourite in Chinese cuisine, the Pitan Tofu comes with a luxurious spread of uni cream sauce, sprinkled with century egg, tobiko and spring onion, and finally with actual Bafun uni sitting atop to complete the indulgent appetiser.

Ultima Wagyu Sashimi 4.2/5

The Ultima Wagyu Sashimi features a platter of Japanese Murasaki Uni, Tataki Miyazaki A5 Wagyu with Siberian Caviar, a shot of Mozuku Algae, and Japanese Seasonal Sashimi. While the Otoro Sashimi was extremely fresh and fatty, the highlight is the uni which boasts an exquisite creamy butter-like consistency. It practically melts in the mouth instantly when you take a bite.

Flaming Lambo Uni 4/5

The Flaming Lambo Uni comes in a pan-seared rack of lamb glazed with Japanese mustard, coated in wasabi crumble, before being flambe with whiskey and drizzled with white truffle uni cream sauce. It makes for an instagram worthy experience with the flaming part of the dish as well.

Buah Keluak Uni Pasta 4.2/5

The Buah Keluak Uni Pasta features a combination of the Peranakan favourite, Buah Keluak, with uni, uni cream sauce and ikura. I like how the unique taste of the Buah Keluak contrasts and blends in with the creamy uni, which makes for a surprisingly good combination.


Last but not least, wrapping up the 'Uni Ultima Kaiseki' is the Gold Dust Uni Cheesecake. It is a fitting finish to the splendour of the kaiseki, with luscious bafun uni encased in jelly and sprinkled with paper gold dust, although we did not get to try as it was not available on the day we were there.
