Once a friend learned that I loved sushi, he mentioned that I should try out the new sushi place in downtown Plano. The husband and I thought that was a great idea and since our staycation seemed to be focused on “Let’s go to ____ to eat,” we headed to Uni for lunch.
Uni was packed – every table and chair at the sushi bar was filled. (We were later told by many people that this was unusual – but maybe from the number of positive reviews we read, Uni should consider this the new normal.)
And that was definitely an accurate statement: One gentleman (the owner?) rolled our sushi while he had an assistant garnishing and caring for the hot food preparation.
We’ve eaten a lot of sushi over the years, at many wonderful and noted restaurants and can confidently say that Uni Sushi was some of the best we’ve ever had. The sauce flavors were amazing – delicately applied and not overdone. The fish was equally excellent. I loved their seaweed salad. The pricing was more than fair – in fact, they may want to raise prices some for the basic lunch special.
So instead of waxing poetic over all of the dishes we enjoyed, I’ll just share photos fro both of our visits during Vacation and Eat Sushi Week 2015.
