The Unbreakable Uchi

Uchi is a contemporary Japanese sushi restaurant located in Austin, Texas which opened in 2003. The Japanese word “Uchi” translates to “house” in English. Owner and chef Tyson Cole’s menu consists of hot and cool tastings, sushi and sashimi, makimono, yakimono and tempura, and a changing omakase based on seasonal items. In 2011, Cole won the “Best Chef, Southwest” award from the James Beard Foundation. Uchiko, the follow up to Uchi, opened its doors in July 2010 in Austin, Texas. Uchiko is translated as “child of uchi” from Japanese. Many people may recognize Uchiko’s Executive Chef, Paul Qui, who recently won Top Chef Season 9. Lastly, Uchi Houston opened in February 2012.
