Loro sounds like someone’s idea of Austin restaurant fan fiction, or the result of a conversation between Franklin Barbecue and Uchi after one too many drinks. Either way, this new Asian smokehouse on South Lamar is already as popular as you’d expect, and there’ll be a 30-45 minute wait to order at the counter regardless of when you go. Make sure to get the brisket, which is a Thai take on the Franklin classic, and the chicken bo ssam, along with some grilled snap peas, corn fritters, and papaya salad on the side. The portions are on the smaller side, so you may want to double up on a few things if you come with a group. Eat it all on the large patio.
