lots of salt. just like i like it.

Sign for Uchi sushi restaurant in Austin, Texas.

this was good. but, i think i'd rather have just plain maguro sashimi. a lot of these sashimi sauces/condiments overpowered the fish, especially the goat cheese. i don't know. im more of a purist.

i like deep fried gingko nuts better. jenn hated this! and omg, $4 for 10 nuts!!!

Nigri at Kyoto in Austin on Congress.

i would like a big bowl of these please.

this was one of my favorites but i think it might be an acquired taste. very salty. very fishy.

everything was very fresh, quite tasty, but about the same price as a roll you get in a sit down restaurant with real sushi chefs. the seasoned rice could be improved upon.

 

but for "fast food" maki-sushi, this was quite good.

again, i thought sauce was overpowering. i couldn't taste the fish.

a typically solid americanized roll. their sushi rice is really good.

omg, this was so good. twice cooked pork belly with tangerine arugala salad and carrot sauce

mizu roll

 

tuna, salmon, yellowtail, avocado, and tobiko, wrapped in soy paper. not particularly outstanding. it needed some sauce or something. but it looked beautiful! love the teardrop.

this was also one of the faves however the candied lemon could've been a fraction of the piece given. the sweetness overpowered everything else.

i felt it was too dry and not decadent and tender as ankimo should be. maybe it dried out from the searing.

Musashino with Sean 6.10.05

interesting idea, messy and hard to eat. too much sweetness, not enough acid for all the richness going on.

bluefin, saba, flounder, butterfish

 

ulf has been looking for "butterfish" ever since he left his homeland. well we found it here at mizu, but it was not as he remembered.

sadly i don't really remember what this tasted like

this is genius. why didn't i think of this?

extra sweet tamago for dessert. this was delicious and decadent. finally something that should be really sweet.

uni wrapped in shiso and nori, tempura-fried. this was deeeelish. this is two orders. i think one piece (half order) would've been good enough for me as it was so rich.

king's roll (sorry, a bit dark)

 

this was recommended by the chef. it's a special roll that he said was very popular. i forget what was in it but it is topped with hawaiin escarole and little brown bits of roasted garlic. we found it rather bland.
