Where can I buy sea urchin roe in London? I'm not interested if it's on a menu - I want to buy it as an ingredient. And I don't mind where it originates - Japanese (uni) or Italian (ricci di mare) or anywhere else is fine.

I'd start with Billingsgate market.

You could also try Atari-ya in various locations around London.

I tried Billingsgate this morning - no luck. Thanks for the tip on Atari-Ya - I'll try that tomorrow.

You can get it on the sashimi counter in the food hall at selfridges (pre-packed into plastic pots). In my experience it's never been absolutely perfectly fresh though, and it's on the dear side.

Have you looked at the sushi counter / cold cabinets of either Japan Centre, or Arigato?

Yes, I've tried the Japan Centre, and Arigato, and Centre Point Food Centre. The formers sells sea urchin paste, not roe, the others neither.
