uchiko ARW week one, round two

We've had the idea to take the kids to uchiko for a special dinner for years. This is the first year I've seen it participating in Austin Restaurant week, so I jumped on the reservation and scored the table.

#1 son is the most adventurous eater of the three kids. The daughter doesn't really like sushi and #2 son doesn't like anything.

We started with some koviche (fresh diver scallp, tomatillo, kalamata, black lime), #1 son can't wait to dive in.

Each of the three courses has three choices. we ordered three ARW meals. That enables us to have everything on the menu! Kat loves this method of ordering.
