Umibudo is one of the Japanese delicacies. It is called Sea Grapes or Green Caviar in English. Umibudo is unique in texture like caviar.
Umibudo (Sea Grapes, Green Caviar) Bowl 海ぶどう丼
Sea Grapes (Green Caviar) Bowl 900 yen
If you order it from the a-la-cart menu, it includes soup. If you order a combo meal of the bowl and noodles, the soup doesn't come.
Sea grapes, grated yam potato (Yamaimo), chopped green onion and bonito flakes are topped on the rice.
Because it is bland, you can enjoy the natural and slightly salty taste of the sea grapes.
It tastes good to me. However, some people don't really like bland-tasting food.
Eating a sea grape bowl at a recommended restaurant MIYARABI is a much better deal than if you buy only sea grapes at supermarkets in Japan.
If you buy the same quantity of sea grapes at supermarket, it costs more than 900 yen.
This restaurant offers affordable meals especially at lunch time.
I know some Izakaya bars (Japanese style pubs) offer sea grapes, but usually it is not so cost-effective, and you also need to pay the cover charge around 300- 500 yen.
Umibudo (Sea grapes) is a little expensive.
