Cho Sushi Lakeway

(map) At last! The Cho brothers bring their contemporary-sushi style to Lakeway. This new location is twice the size of the original in Steiner Ranch. But it’s already packed with crowds hungry for the Cho’s creative take on the freshest, top-notch ingredients. The menu lists a variety of innovative sushi rolls. Above and below, the Bentley. Inside rolled sushi rice are fatty tuna, crab and sliced cucumber. The outside is topped with richly marbled Kobe beef, which is then lightly seared and brushed with a honey-bourbon glaze. Heavenly.

This roll is called the CRP. When asked what that stood for, the chef said, “I have no idea!” Another delicious creation of escolar and asparagus, wrapped in rice, then topped with yellowtail, spicy sliced serranos and masago (flying-fish eggs).

There are always new specials on the menu, like this lightly cooked salmon collar, above. The chef told us it was from “the best part of the fish” (the cheeks). You can see one of the chefs carving up the day’s catch, below. In addition to creativity, top-quality ingredients are the secret to Cho’s success.

It’s fun to sit at the sushi bar and interact with the chefs, or you can take a seat in the roomy dining area. Okay, Lakeway: ┬áready, set, Cho!

Went on Friday. The food was as good as the Steiner Ranch location, but they are going through “growing pains.” The place was packed, and our server, while helpful, was a little overwhelmed. She said their computer system was not installed yet, slowing down the kitchen, and that another server decided not to show up for work. However, I will definitely be back after they get adjusted to the new space.

The place is nice, and the owners and staff are nice. But the head sushi chef is full of himself, and takes no care in the sushi preparation. He is clearly unable to deal with the stress of job. Every restaurant gets three chances, and the due to the attitude from behind the sushi bar, I will never go back.
