Uchi or Uchiko?
I will be in Austin for the first time in January and will be spending 3 night there. I definitely want to try either Uchi or Uchiko but can't decide which. After a quick glance of the menu's I was leaning Uchiko, but after asking someone who lives in Austin they couldnt decide.
Which one would you try if you could only dine at one?
I will also be having Barleyswine, and probably Lenoir on the other night if that helps at all.
We tend to prefer Uchiko because my wife really likes the Jar Jar Duck. But otherwise, really, you can't lose if you just flip a coin. They are both excellent, similar in style and execution, although the menus are different. You just can't do better than just flipping a coin, in my opinion, or go by geographical proximity.
What an excellent dilemma. My vote is Uchiko.
Extraordinary food plus an interesting neighborhood.
Maybe try Fonda San Miguel or Drink Well for a nightcap.
