The North Austin restaurant Tomodachi has a small dining room and sushi bar, and they also run a very robust takeout operation. They do traditional sushi, sashimi, and rolls exceptionally well, and they also have hot dishes like black cod, tonkatsu, and teriyaki. But where they really shine are the specials that they post on the wall (and on their Facebook account once a week) with fish flown in from places like Japan and Hawaii. You want to order from this menu.
