Kyoten Sushiko, the next phase of sushi trailer Kyoten, is set to debut sometime this month. With that comes the sample omakase menu and a new website, where owner Otto Phan waxed on about the crucial relationship between fish and rice, reflected with the food.
The evening-only tasting menu offerings focus on 20 or so simply-prepared items. It’ll be heavy on nigiri, made with Japanese seasonal fish like shima aji and kohada, along with uni, shrimp, and high-quality wagyu. Other items will include items like madai two ways, tamago, and miso soup.
The omakase dinners will be intimate: only eight people can sit the bar. Reservations, which will be made through ticketing system Tock, will be $150, which already includes tax and tip. Beer, wine, and sake will be available.
Lunch, launching about a month after opening, will be more of a casual affair. The a la carte options will include chirashi bowls and pressed sushi, ordered straight from the counter.
Mueller is quickly becoming Austin's next hot spot, with Bribery Bakery already, and the impending arrivals of L'Oca d'Ora, Youngblood's Fried Chicken, Alamo Drafthouse, Lick Ice Creams, and more.
