Texas Sushiko

Austin’s sweeping love of tacos and its insatiable desire for sushi come together in this innovative food truck concept. Texas Sushiko was born from executive chef Michael Carranza’s desire to create an accessible form of the popular omakase sushi experience, one that didn’t require a reservation months in advance and that would appeal to even his non-sushi-loving family members. His idea? Present sushi in the fashion of a well-loved, ubiquitous dish: the taco. The result is Texas Sushiko’s omakase-quality open-faced hand rolls. Menu highlights include the king crab hand roll topped with fresh truffles, the fatty bluefin tuna hand roll with seasonal ingredients, the sous vide and grilled pork belly hand roll with kimchi, and Black River Russian Oscietra caviar served with sour-cream-and-onion Pringles. And since the truck is located outside the Texas Sake Company tasting room in South Austin, a perfectly paired sake beverage is just steps away.
