Co-owned by Komé chef Takehiro Asazu and Masazumi Saio of longtime Uchi fame, this spot at Springdale General’s food complex balances upscale food and casual atmosphere. Sushi classes and take-home temaki (hand roll) kits are part of the charm, and a quick temaki makes the perfect lunch. (Try the beef tataki with fried shallot, pickled jalapeno, and umami jelly.) Reliably fresh and delicious, Uroko easily makes the growing list of Austin’s gold-standard Japanese food.
