Tomodachi Sushi

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

Tomodachi, Tomo for short, is the very definition of a hole-in-the-wall sushi spot from the outside, but you’ll be greeted by enchanting art once you come in. The walls are adorned by the works of one half of the husband-wife duo behind Tomo, while the other half has 25 years of experience that fine tune each roll to a balance of both modern and traditional.
