UNA’s Basque cuisine
Previously operating at One Rochester, UNA has returned to the City to open UNA at The Alkaff Mansion on Level 2. Situated on the second floor of a 101-year-old heritage building, UNA is known for its authentic Basque cuisine.
UNA has a unique atmosphere that is both stylish and comfortable. The restaurant’s interior features dark ebony-hued timber and Tudor-style architecture. It serves Basque-inspired dishes, including its signature Paella de Marisco, a traditional seafood paella.
UNA’s Basque-inspired dishes were served at a casual pace. The dining room, situated on the second floor of the historical site, strikes a balance between social safety and a comfortable, intimate atmosphere. The location of the historic building is also a plus – it is set high among trees, providing a serene, secluded setting for a memorable meal.
UNA’s Basque-inspired menu also includes a cult dish called txuleta, which is beef ribs marinated with piquillo sauce. The beef used in this dish is typically from an older cow, which makes for a richer flavour. Other words include the Ensalada de Tomate y Atun ($10), which features heirloom tomatoes and tuna.
UNA’s lower courtyard
The lower courtyard of UNA contains several parts. These include a causeway connecting the temple in the harbour with the mortuary temple. There is also a massive granite doorway that leads into the mortuary temple. The mortuary temple was built by the successor of Unas, Teti. The temple contains two long boat pits, which once had wooden boats, possibly the solar barques of Ra. The lower courtyard also features a transverse corridor separating the inner and outer temple. Its entry chapel was once adorned with five statues arranged in niches.
The tomb of Egyptian pharaoh Unas was the smallest pyramid of the Old Kingdom, but it contains an inscription of a protective spell for the king’s afterlife. The tradition of burying the dead with a text has survived from the Old Kingdom into the Middle Kingdom. These texts, known as Coffin Texts, form the basis of the Book of the Dead.
