I love spaghetti and I love uni. So when I had an opportunity to try both of them together, I was very excited. The uni spaghetti at Jinbei is creamy and rich with great uni flavor. The spaghetti was cooked al dente, just the way I like it. I only wish the uni slices on top were bigger and thicker especially for the price ($19). But the dish was very filling and satisfying.
I also had the blue fin tuna which was buttery soft and smooth, basically melt in your mouth. So delicious. I didn't get a picture unfortunately. I was too excited to eat. But there are pictures of the fish on Jinbei's Facebook page.
I'd want to come here again to try the mentaiko spaghetti. The decor is nice and the restaurant is clean though the prices are a little steep. Then again, it is Japanese food.
