Uchiko


After a blistering 3 days in the sun, I found refuge at Uchiko with new pal Deana on my last night in Austin. Deana is a rad chick who also happens to be Uchiko executive chef Paul Qui's girlfriend which means we got some extra special treatment that my stomach and I more than willingly accepted. 

Here's a rundown of the night's beyond incredible menu through my mobile pictures:

raw diver scallop, spicy sauce, avocado
porcini mushrooms with truffle sauce
horse mackerel with ginger and garlic
oysters with chili oil and fresh wasabi
gyutan grilled beef tongue, fish caramel, maldon
ham & eggs katsu pork belly, green tomato, farm fresh egg, espelette
george smoked altantic salmon, avocado, preserved lemon, skyr yogurt
take nabe japanese mushroom, koshi hikari, farm fresh egg, bushi
