Oh man, the beautiful aroma when my uni omelette was served. I really wish you can smell it! うに屋のあまごころ at Tokyo Station specializes in uni and the menu is all about sea urchin. I was plenty pleased with my choice — fluffy and runny ふわふわ omelette topped with briny uni sauce (though the piece of uni ain’t worth raving about). So much love for this and less than half the price of Mercer Brunch’s!

Hello uni omelette!! Went to Mercer Brunch just for that but ended up with two same-same-but-different plates on the table, score. Because there’s uni, and there’s lobster. The latter has a reddish tinge from the fresh tomato lobster cream sauce and I like the slight sweetness. The one with uni has a more briny flavour so it really depends on personal preference. Worth a try but pity that the texture is not as fluffy as La Mère Poulard’s!

I’m sure you already know – Epicurean Market 2015 opens tomorrow and will run till 16 August. I’ve been to the previous two events and no way am I going to miss the latest third edition! These are the dishes which I’m eyeing from the celebrity restaurants:

Adrift: californian heirloom tomato toast with vanilla and turmeric, and its signature King crab melt with pimento cheese (pineapple tamarind glazed pork ribs sound interesting too);
– Long Chim: grilled eggplant salad with dried prawn (meaty dishes include beef skewers, charred rice noodles with pork and yellow beans, and deep-fried chicken with plum sauce);
– Waku Ghin: marinated botan shrimp with sea urchin and oscietra caviar which is a familiar favourite (though I think the menu is quite boring and repetitive every year);
– Osteria Mozza: grilled octopus (there is also a new cold pasta dish – squid ink chitarra freddi with sea urchin, fresh crabmeat and jalapeno pesto);
– Spago: spicy tuna tartare (looking forward to this the most as it’s a sneak preview ahead of its official opening!)

Stay tuned by my Instagram tomorrow evening for my thoughts on the hits and misses!
