Few will argue that Uchi reigns supreme in Houston. With its dynamic sushi menu and fresh selection of seafood flown in from around the globe, this restaurant is a permanent fixture among the city’s ever expanding dining scene.
While reservations are highly encouraged during dinner service, you won’t find a busier time than Uchi's “Sake Social Hour” when diners can score discounted food and drink specials off of the usually very pricey menu.
Signature samplings offered include ham and eggs, a dish of katsu pork belly with yolk custard and the smoked baby yellowtail with yucca crisp. These delightful plates will set you back only $6 apiece. The walu walu, oak grilled escolar
with candied citrus, is a favorite and only $8 during social hour. And for you carnivores, the Berkshire pork ribs
with peanuts and Thai herbs is a heartier selection, but still a steal at only $12.
It wouldn’t be a “Sake Social Hour” without a selection of sake or two
, and Uchi does not disappoint. Guests can choose from hot or cold sake for $3, or the highly popular Kara Kyuri sake cocktail crafted with cold sake, cucumber, and Thai chili for $6.
Though a line begins to form daily around 4:30 p.m. to get a table during social hour, the inside scoop is that the restaurant takes reservations for happy hour! Table reservations are available throughout the entire restaurant — not just a crowded bar — and guests are welcome to order from both the social hour and dinner menus.For more Houston dining and travel news, click here.
