Musashino Sushi Dokoro
3407 Greystone Dr.
Austin, TX

I have never really thought of Texas as a sushi hotbed, so I was skeptical as I entered the address for Musashino into my GPS. When I pulled up to the address, I was confused. The building said Chinatown not Musashino.

I assumed that the place had closed. I was still hungry so I went in and enjoyed a nice lunch of egg rolls and sweet and sour pork. When I finished, I asked about the restrooms and the hostess sent me to the basement. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Musashino was still in business and located in the basement of Chinatown.

I came back to Musashino later to give it a try. Musashino is a large sushi restaurant with a menu of sushi and other Japanese items. I would characterize Musashino’s menu as unusual. The categories were:

  1. Fusion Appetizers
  2. Traditional Appetizers
  3. Salad and Soup
  4. Entrees
  5. Sushi
  6. Traditional Rolls
  7. US Rolls
  8. Hand Rolls
  9. Desserts

I chose an excellent seaweed salad. I spent some time looking at sushi combos and ala carte items. In the end, I selected two rolls from the US Rolls menu. I choose the Texas Hybrid Roll with salmon and the Rock and Roll.

The Texas Hybrid Roll was unique. You get to choose between tuna or salmon rolled in rice paper with avocado and scallions. It was served with a spicy sauce. The rice paper added a nice touch. I have had very few sushi items that I have enjoyed as much as this roll.

The Rock and Roll comes with shrimp tempura, some sort of roe, avocado, radish sprouts and a sweet sauce. I don’t normally like tempura of any sort but I thought I would give it a try. I ordered mine without the roe. I was pleasantly surprised. The roll was excellent. The tempura gave it a crunchy texture and the sauce set it off nightly.

Everything about Musashino Sushi Dokoro was good — I’ll be back.
