Komé: Austin

Komé

I haven’t written about places in Austin. Last weekend some friends were in town visiting from Houston. They were craving eat ramen, so by recommendation we went to Komé. Restaurant

We arrived around 9:30pm Friday night, without reservations. There was quiet a bit of people waiting. They said it was about a 30 minute wait. I don’t think it took that long at all. We were starving so I didn’t pay too much attention to the time. Although, after we were seated no one came to our table for about 10 minutes. It was a busy Friday night. We stopped a waiter that was walking by and he quickly apologized and offered to take our order. After that our service was pretty great. Our glasses of water never went below halfway.

We were surprised to find out ramen was only on their lunch menu. Oh well, the choices looked delicious and pretty well priced too. I love eating with my Asian friends, they understand family style eating aka ordering courses and sharing.

We all started with seaweed salads.(apologizes for the dim lighting in the pictures)

Then worked our way to the awesome Komé French Fries “Ao-nori salted French fries with a side of honey-wasabi aioli for dipping.” Excuse me while I wipe up my drool.

Next only two of us ventured to indulge in some Iidako (Baby octopus skewers) delicious!

Then we ordered about five different sushi rolls. I recommend all of them!

*Crunchy Dynamite Roll “Sushi-A-Go-Go original spicy tuna, avocado, sesame seeds, tempura flakes”

*Spooky Roll “Fresh salmon on top, spicy tuna, avocado, Go-Go sauce”

*Austin “Tuna, krab salad, avocado, sesame seeds, eel sauce”

*Eel Box “Unagi on top, krab salad inside, eel sauce, sansho pepper”

*Longhorn Roll

My tummy and taste buds were delightfully satisfied.
