2. Competition Heats Up On 183

With the opening of a sushi bar inside of Kobe Japanese
Steakhouse (, the corner of 183 and Anderson 
Mill Road has become an all-out sushi melee with Kobe joining 
Osaka on the Southwest corner, and Midori on the Northeast corner. 
Is there sufficient business to sustain them all?  Only time will tell.

And Speaking Of 183....
Various Austin Sushi News readers have pointed out that
there's an "Iron Chef" sign up on a location currently
under remodel at the Southwest corner of 183 and Burnet
Road. Anyone with a clue about this new venue, please drop
us a line.


3. The Sushi Seals Will Take America By Storm!

Š..or so this web site would lead you to believe.
The Sushi Seals Family is a wildly popular animated series in
Japan about a family of, well, sushi seals. They look sort
of like seals, but also like pieces of sushi (see the web site
for a picture). 

The web site sez: ŒThe sushi seals are a happy seal family that lives 
in today's times.  The concept behind The Sushi Seals Family 
is "Teletubbies" meets "South Park"ı
