Some of city’s best sushi coming to Austin airport
I still remember going to Sushi-A-Go-Go on the day of LeBron James’ “Decision” and picking up a Sunshine Roll (salmon and mango) and a Longhorn Roll (steak, cream cheese and avocado) and taking it home for a TV-side dinner. Some memories just stick with you.
Sushi-A-Go-Go was a trailer originally opened on Barton Springs Road in 2009. Yep, sushi from a trailer. It even added a second location before closing so owners Také and Kayo Asazu could focus on opening their first restaurant, Kome, on Airport Boulevard. Since then the couple has opened Daruma Ramen and Ni-Kome downtown and teamed with chef Masa Saio to open temaki and omakase sushi restaurant Urokko, which we gave a glowing review this week.
The Asazus are now bringing Sushi-A-Go-Go back to life and will open a location of the restaurant in a new food hall at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport early next year. The counter-serve spot, which will be operated by an outside airport vendor, will likely feature many of the rolls and nigri that made Sushi-A-Go-Go a hit when it surprised Austin diners when it opened in 2009.
