When people ask us where to get sushi in Austin, we usually answer with a few qualifications like, “Be ready to wait three hours” or “It’s fine, for Austin.” Thankfully now there’s Uroko, a casual, affordable sushi spot from the Kome team that we only qualify with “best handroll in the city.” Head to the Springdale General office park starting at 11am to order counter-service handrolls, then eat them at the indoor picnic tables in the lobby of the main co-working space. Also, on Friday and Saturday nights, they offer limited reservations for their 45-minute, 12-piece omakase for $65.

Tamale House East
We don't use the term 'legit' often, but there's no other way to describe Tamale House East. Hit it for the breakfast tacos and best migas in town.

You don’t have to go to Uchi to get great raw fish. Komé is a reasonably-priced, high-quality alternative.
