Monday Night Sushi-oke

Sushi PimpNow that Christmas is past, along with its requisite shopping trips, long visits with relatives, and saccharine TV specials, it’s time to have some actual fun. And if you like sushi, karaoke, and bawdy talk from Asian pimps, then there is only one place in Austin to maximize your post-holiday entertainment.

DK Sushi, alternately named Seoul Restaurant (I don’t really get the distinction), started serving sushi back when beating OU was so easy even Peter Gardere could do it. And like Gardere’s Enfield crackhouse, DK Sushi is not much to look at. Those willing to venture inside the South Austin (as in “78745” South Austin) strip mall will find delectable rolls, free-flowing sake, sushi-cam, and occasional karaoke that have propped up this unlikely sushi joint for more than 13 years.

But the real entertainment comes on Monday nights, when sushi chef D.K. Lee adopts a pimp persona that makes truckers and sailors blush. WARNING: if anyone in your group is uncomfortable with sexually explicit slang, and I mean a lot of it, then this won’t be your cup of tea. On our last visit, the pimp’s tongue was loosened considerably after doing sake bombs with any and every karaoke participant, which was massively entertaining, but probably not conducive for celebrating Grandma’s birthday.

Word has it that the sushi pimp may be retiring soon, in which case patrons will have to make due with the food and the tunes. I’ll go back even without the sushi pimp, although it’ll suck having to pay for all those sake bombs.

    Oh, yeah, I know the Sushi Pimp. I have outlasted the gong. I have taken my shirt off and had dollars stuffed down my pants.
