When people ask us where to get sushi in Austin, we usually answer with a few qualifications like, “Be ready to wait three hours” or “It’s fine, for Austin.” Thankfully now there’s Uroko, a casual, affordable sushi spot from the Kome team that we only qualify with “best handroll in the city.” Head to the Springdale General office park starting at 11am to order counter-service handrolls, then eat them at the indoor picnic tables in the lobby of the main co-working space. Also, on Friday and Saturday nights, they offer limited reservations for their 45-minute, 12-piece omakase for $65.
