Kuneho: Classic and Innovative Sushi in Austin

July 11, 2017 12:00 pm

Happy hour is such great fun at Kuneho that a single "happy" simply won't do; the eatery's founders call it "Happy Happy Time" instead. From 5 to 7 p.m. every day of the week, patrons flock to this beloved Austin eatery for Happy Happy Time. Small appetizers start at a mere $2 apiece, like the crispy onion and the enoki mushroom with tamari. For a bit more, enjoy a maki roll like the Mama Mia with tuna, cucumber, and avocado, or the Kimcheese eggroll stuffed with Velveeta and kimchi.

If you decide to come for a full meal, your options expand quite a bit. The large list of sushi and sashimi encompasses everything from yellowtail to Spanish mackerel, while the collection of maki rolls offers a few inventive eats. For something totally unique, try the K-Town Roll with short rib, kimchi, and Asian pear. The Unicorn en Vaso is a grilled "sushi" creation with grilled corn, corn milk, and a sea urchin. Save some room for chocolate mochi cake or jasmine sorbet at the end of your meal at Kuneho.
