While the East side of Austin has seen an explosion of new restaurants over the past few years it lacked Japanese fare. WuWu Sushi opened recently filling that niche. The location was a mere foundation 6 months ago and since has transformed into a seemingly quaint structure. Once you enter the doors you are welcomed with bold red walls and rich wooden floors and tables.
WuWu makes the most of their space providing patrons with endless seating options. From the sunny patio, covered porch, cozy sushi bar, bar and bright dining room customers can chose the perfect spot to enjoy sushi and cocktails.

The drink menu bares the GO TEXAN logo as they serve Texas beer, wine and sake. Soon they will start serving Hilmy Cellars wine. I recently visited Hilmy Cellars\’ tasting room in Fredericksburg and tried a few of the wines. I enjoyed the 2010 Politics & Religion made of Merlot and Mourvedre grown in the Texas high planes and I hope that it makes their finalized wine list.
The cocktail menu consists of creative themed drinks such as the Sweet WuWu Peach and the Raspberry WuWu.
While the decor is simple, colorful and interesting pieces of artwork are displayed throughout the restaurant.
Pictured below is WuWu\’s Kamikaze roll consisting of seared yellowtail, katsu avocado and crab.
Happy hour is 5pm-7pm with discounted appetizers and $1 off drinks.
WuWu is located on East 7th Street next to Takoba and across the street from Texas State Cemetery.
