Made in Japan

The culinary culture of Japan, "Washoku", is world-renowned.

The key ingredient in that food culture, rice, is frequently eaten with "mentaiko",
and the dish has graced the tables of Japan to great praise for nearly 60 years.

Its subtle salty and spicy flavor brings out the appetite,
and in addition to rice, can even be eaten with pasta.

What’s “Mentaiko”

Traditional Japanese Flavor with a History.

"Mentaiko", or "pollock roe", is made by salting the ovaries of the walleye pollock and soaking them in a seasoning liquid made spicy by capsicum, a spice that has been used in Japan for centuries.
It has come to be known as "Japanese caviar."
Umeya's mentaiko is soaked in a seasoning liquid made with a traditional recipe that has been passed down for generations.
Over time, the eggs absorb the mixture, so that each and every one bursts with delicious flavor when eaten.
