Uchi and Uchiko Restaurant Week
I have reservations for both restaurants during Restaurant Week. We have never been to either restaurant before and I'm curious for recommendations off the Restaurant Week menu. Also any recommendations of things we need to add on to the menu that we need to try. My sister will be dining with me and we are both open to trying new things. Thank you!
i dunno if it was a special or on the regular menu, but if foie gras nigiri is available i couldn't recommend it more highly.
at Uchiko, I've enjoyed and recommend:
ham & eggs
sweet corn sorbet
they always have interesting daily specials to choose from, too. always exciting eating there!
i've had the jarjar duck and was not blown away, although it seems to get a lot of media attention.
Here's the list I compiled from my post here before my first visit to Uchiko in January. I didn't order all of that, but we ordered 13 dishes between 4 of us and our waitress commented on how good our choices were for first timers.
Jar Jar Duck
try going for the happy hours instead of restaurant week. you can try a ton of food for less $$
I second the foie nigiri, karaage and hama chili but add the gyutoro nigiri – wagyu beef belly and hotate (scallop)
Just got home from Uchi. We tried the seabass crudo, hama chili, machi cure, bacon steakie, hamachi nabe, coffee panna cotta, lemon gelato, and an amazing special with waygu sirloin and three kinds of watermelon. The service was amazing the food was incredible and I cannot wait to visit Uchiko next week and try out your suggestions. Thank you everyone!
