Like I’ve said before, I love Japanese food. I don’t always have to have sashimi or sushi, there are times when I just want a simple home-style Japanese meal which is comforting and satisfying. A bento box will all the right ingredients is often what totally hits the spot. Uoko is perfect when those moments hit. Not only do they have pretty good sushi and sashimi, and lunch time specials include a 5 item for $15 which includes miso soup and salad. However, what I come here for are the lunch specials — which includes combos — are really well put together and is highly reasonable at around $8-$9. These could include tempura and tonkatsu, tonkatsu and sashimi (pictured), there are around 5 or 6 combo plates you can choose from. If that isn’t what you fancy, the udon is also worth trying — I personally like soba noodles better so I always ask for the substitution. Regardless of what I’ve ordered, Uoko always delivers! The lunch combos aren’t huge proportionately but, it suffices! All lunch combos include miso soup and rice.
