D.K. Sushi

For Valentines Day we took a trip down to Austin and had lunch at our favorite sushi restaurant, D.K. Sushi in North Austin. I know I’ve written about D.K. Sushi before, but seriously we LOVE this place! We’re THAT old boring couple, once we try a place and find one we love we are forever loyal customers. We’ve been going to DK’s for a few years now. I still remember the first time we walked in and sat down at one of the six tables available. It has now expanded to include lots of tables and booths and also features a stage for karaoke. They now have daily specials and my favorite, baked avocado. We always pig out when we’re there so prepare yourself for a feast for the eyes.

Baked Avocado | D.K. Sushi | Austin, Texas
This is seriously soooo GOOOOOOD!
Spicy crab meat heaped onto half of an avocado topped with sesame seeds, green onions and masago then baked to perfection.

The King and I & Ahi Crunch | D.K. Sushi | Austin, Texas
These two rolls were a couple of the specials. The one in the front is called Ahi Crunch and the one in the back is called The King and I. I don’t remember what was in the Ahi Crunch, but the King and I consisted of spicy yellowtail, cucumber and scallions topped with escolar, shaved almonds and tobiko. Delicious and the presentation is just gorgeous!

Naked Tiger Roll & L.A. Roll | D.K. Sushi | Austin, Texas
The one in the front is called the Naked Tiger Roll which consists of baked green mussel, gourd, avocado and topped with tobiko. The roll in the back is the L.A. Roll which is a California Roll (crab, avocado, and cucumber) topped with masago.

Torched Escolar | D.K. Sushi | Austin, Texas
These are Torched Escolar. One order comes with two pieces. As you can see we needed several orders to appease our fat asses. Torched escolar over rice drenched in ponzu sauce and topped with a sprinkle of scallions. Yummy and buttery, I can’t get enough of these! No trip to DK’s is ever complete without a few of these delicious beauties. Seriously, my mouth is watering just looking at this photo! These are not on the menu so make sure you request it if you want to give them a try.

Volcano Roll | D.K. Sushi |Austin, Texas
This is also another favorite, the Volcano Roll. California Roll with cream cheese, topped with a spicy seafood mix. I love the seafood mix. It’s my favorite part of this dish. I’ve tried Volcano Rolls in other sushi restaurants and none can compare to DK’s.

Yellowtail, Tuna, Masago and Shrimp Nigiri

Tropical Roll | D.K. Sushi | Austin, Texas
The Tropical Roll is what we call our dessert roll. It consists of apple, pineapple, avocado with rice and topped with mango and strawberry. It’s a very light and yummy roll.

Roses made from Yellow Tail, Tuna and Salmon with a heaping pile of crab meat. | D.K. Sushi | Austin Texas
This is our very special bonus from D.K.
A pile of crab meat accompanied by roses made out of Yellow Tail, Tuna and Salmon.
It’s beautiful isn’t it? No one has ever made anything so gorgeous just for us. We love you D.K. and we hope you stay around for many many years to come. Thank you for an unforgettable Valentines Day lunch.
