Whats the difference between Narabi & Bara Sea Urchin?
Bara Uni, Seaurchin is an arrangement that Uni farmers use to create a woven alignment of Uni. Bara tends to be a bit smaller than narabi but chefs love it as much as the smaller pieces of uni can sometimes have an even higher concentration of Umami in them!
