After many, many visits, to the little red house (AKA, Uchi), in the heart of South Lamar, this was my first trip during happy hour. The first time I have ever walked up to the reception hostess and got seated within 5 minutes of arrival. I was lucky enough to grab one of the last remaining tables. Clearly the Uchi happy hour is no secret in this town and I was just late to the party.
The happy hour menu was full of delicious tastings. Mostly priced around $6 per dish. There was no shortage of the creative Uchi menu items I have known to grow and love. Things like uchiviche, some of the best ceviche around. There was an abundance of yellowtail dishes. And the bacon steakie is melt in your mouth delicious pork belly.
Uchi is one of the best restaurants in town that does a great job of incorporating the sense of taste, smell and site in each dish they present. And in case you missed any one of these, the knowledgeable servers that run the dishes out make sure you know every detail of the presentation and ingredients before you dig in. Three words come to mind when I think of Uchi: Top notch service.
This is definitely my go to place when seeking out food cooked to perfection served up with a great atmosphere. Now if I could just get a teeny tiny bit of window lighting to help with a few photographs, I’d be one happy photog. Oh, and don’t forget, save room for dessert!
