Iconic Summer Dishes in Austin: Hama Chili at Uchiko

As the weather heats up, this week we're highlighting iconic summer dishes in our city. First is the palate-cleansing hama chili at Uchiko. Chef Tyson Cole’s Asian fusion restaurant is cool in more ways than one: the chic Japanese farmhouse-dining d├ęcor also involves a decidedly cool interior, temperature-wise, especially in light of the sweltering weather outside. Start a decadent meal off right with the hama chile cold tasting, with baby yellowtail delicately placed over ponzu and decorated with spicy Thai chile pepper slivers and orange supremes. The heat from the chiles balances with the citrus from the supremes, and both work together to let the yellowtail shine.
