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.
