Uroko is a laid-back East Austin spot specializing in temaki and omakase. Temaki are large sushi hand rolls, and at Uroko, they're also available in sets for a cool build-your-own option for takeout. Omakase is an experience where the chefs whisk guests through a dozen crescendoing bites, such as whole fried giant prawns or tomago, a sweet folded omelet stamped with the eatery’s name. Miraculously, the experience never feels rushed. Diners still have the chance to swoon, chatter, and order another round of sparkling sake. Omakase is only served on certain days of the week and it's now available for takeout, as well.
