Best risotto in Austin is at...

Soto, in Cedar Park.

I thought that the risotto part of the :
"O-Toro Sashimi on a bed of shaved truffle companied by creamy sushi rice risotto with wild mushroom"

would be iffy. Who would expect a Japanese restaurant to serve incredible risotto?

Should have known better. Everything I've tried at Soto meets my 2 criteria of what makes an ideal restaurant dish:
1) It's delicious.
2) It requires either more skill, more time, or more creativity than I possess.

especially that risotto. Even the way they sliced the sashimi complimented the risotto texture. More with soft edges than angular ones.

Here's the Austin Chronicle's Soto review:
