Have you ever had a soup made from fish eggs? At the Old Village Seattle Korean restaurant, you can! Fish eggs, commonly known in English by the Japanese word “roe”, may not be a common food item in the US, but those who have tried them generally agree that they are a delicious delicacy. And in case you need any further incentive to give these tiny round marvels a try, it also turns out that they’re amazingly good for you.
On top of being a good source of protein, vitamin A, and vitamin D, fish eggs have been shown to be the single best source of omega-3 fatty acids in the world. This invaluable substance, considered absolutely necessary for proper heart function and circulatory health, is present in both its most important forms in roe. If you find yourself having a hard time getting all the omega-3 your system needs, even a modest serving of fish eggs can be enough to satisfy your requirement.
At Old Village, you can try fish eggs in our fish egg soup and our soft tofu fish egg soup. Try them out now, and discover your heart’s most delicious new ally!
