WHICH UNI SHOULD I ORDER?
We sell our highest grades of uni on our website and any product will be the best Santa Barbara sea urchin you've experienced.
-

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN PRODUCTS?
We sell two grades of wild Santa Barbara uni on our website and they differ in how they're packaged.

Wild Santa Barbara, Premium Grade : Our highest grade and normally used in Michelin restaurants. 1000 pounds of sea urchin only yields about 5 wooden trays of premium uni.

Wild Santa Barbara, A+ Grade: Exceeds expectations for uni lovers and found in fine sushi restaurants. Our A+ grade typically grades out to our competitor's premium grade.

Maruhide "Ranched" Purple Uni: Enjoy the uniquely, sweet, mild and nutty flavor of Santa Barbara’s rarely tasted Uni. Raised on a high-quality Kelp diet, Urchin’s preferred food, and packed in salt water for that “right from the shell” flavor.

WHEN DO YOU RESTOCK FRESH UNI?
We recommend purchasing any in-stock uni and salt-water (ensui) if your order will be shipped. Please check back often as fresh uni sells out daily. Uni Shutou is a popular alternative to our fresh uni. Follow us on Instagram for stock notifications.

WHY IS YOUR UNI DIFFERENT?
Our factory is the premier Santa Barbara uni supplier to Michelin chefs, restaurants, smaller distributors, and home chefs.

Most of the uni you will find in the U.S. isn't fresh because the product sits on a shelf for a long time. Additionally, the uni can pass through multiple retailers before you consume it, resulting in a fishy taste. Only fresh sea urchin retains its ideal sweet flavor, color, and buttery texture.

Our expert divers harvest the wild sea urchins and bring them to our facility. We start by cracking the sea urchins early in the morning. Maruhide's masters carefully select the best uni, pack to order, and ship on the same day it's processed. We're passionate about serving you the best uni the ocean offers.

A5 Wagyu Beef

Our top shelf and highest-marbling beef is famed for its luxurious melt-in-your-mouth texture. Certified A5 Japanese wagyu beef sourced from small, rare, and award-winning brands across Japan. Learn the differences by tasting different Japanese brands as a wagyu flight. Note: wagyu cannot be shipped to Japan

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN CUTS?
Larger Steaks
The larger striploin/ribeye steaks are about 3/4" thick and ideal for larger parties.

4oz Steaks
4oz steaks will vary in size - see each product listing for details. The thicker 4oz steaks are ideal for sushi, nigiri, and yakiniku.

WHAT IS A5 WAGYU?
A5 is a Japanese grading term for the highest yield and meat quality grades.

WHAT IS BMS?
Beef marble score (BMS) measures the amount of intramuscular fat (marbling). A5 ranges from BMS 8 to 12. BMS 8 is similar to fatty tuna, and BMS 12 is similar to extra-fatty tuna. We specialize in sourcing the highest BMS 12, which accounts for less than 5% of A5 Japanese wagyu.

GENETICS
By law, wagyu in Japan are Fullblood (100% wagyu genetics) with no cross-breeding. Fullblood wagyu has a low melting point of around 78°F, resulting in the famous melt-in-your-mouth experience.

300+ WAGYU BRANDS
Like wine, each brand/region of wagyu will be distinct from the others. Farms will differ in genetics, animal husbandry, environment, and diet. Learn the differences by tasting different Japanese brands as a wagyu flight.

Frozen Uni Products

SMOKED UNI
Enjoy this unique delicacy from the Santa Barbara coast. Gently smoked to enhance Uni’s natural sweetness and umami. The indulgent flavor is sure to bring excitement to your appetizers and charcuterie board favorites.

UNI SHUTOU
Shutou can be enjoyed in many ways as a garnish, in sushi, or by itself. We use 100% whole Santa Barbara uni. We marinate the fresh uni in a kelp-based (kombu) soy sauce to enrich the umami taste. Our Shutou is served in JAL first class as an hors d’ouvre and is often compared to caviar. Our clients stock their freezers with the different Shutou products. Available in multiple flavors.

FROZEN UNI | 5 POCKET TRAY
This frozen uni is a popular substitute when the 5 Pocket Tray fresh uni is out of stock. Create your own uni butter, uni pasta, sauces, and more with our frozen uni.

SEA URCHIN (UNI) SOY SAUCE
We marinate the fresh uni with our original stock soy sauce mixture. We mature the blend overnight to bring out rich, deep umami, and flavorful taste. Sea urchin soy sauce can be enjoyed in many ways, including sashimi, pasta, tofu, salad, steamed rice, and more.

UNI BUTTER
A delicious way to add a balance of sweet, buttery, and briny flavor to your dishes. Our butter uses high quality Santa Barbara uni and is made up of 50% uni. Use the uni butter on bread, pasta, tofu, seafood, sushi, and more.

Fish Roes

Soy-blend marinated ikura (salmon roe) is delicious with sushi rice and served in fine sushi restaurants. Smoked trout roe is a delectable burst of texture and flavor. Add both to your donburi rice bowl with A5 wagyu, uni, and caviar.

Caviar
