Where to Eat Now
We're craving sushi, so we've narrowed down the Alamo City options to the six best sushi spots we simply can't live without. Happy dining, San Antonio.
On a recent visit for lunch, we discovered an amazing $12 lunch board of sashimi and rolls, and we were stuffed. Chef Geronimo said he wanted a perfect yet filling board, and he has succeeded. The Buenazo Roll is our favorite, with shrimp, avocado, mango, sesame, crispy noodles, and sweet aji sauce.
Godai Sushi Bar & Restaurant
This Castle Hills restaurant is well regarded for the freshness of the sushi, and we couldn't agree more. Try a combination like the Goro's Combo so you can enjoy a full journey with a lot of variations.
Niki's Tokyo Inn
You should absolutely eat Japanese style here — no shoes and on the floor. It's authentic and over the top good with the kindest and most attentive staff. Try the hand rolls and order plenty of options from the sushi a la carte menu.
Posh Sushi & Grill
The popular Laredo-based chain is the perfect happy hour spot with $8 rolls that are out of this world. The Marylin Monroll had us at hello with spicy shrimp, avocado, and cilantro wrapped with yellow tail and habanero mazago.
Sushi and champagne for dinner is a perfect way to go. Make sure to experiment with the bubbles in comparison to the flavors presented through the sushi. We're a sucker for the mini sashimi platter, perfect to share at this new Blue Star Arts Complex addition.
Meticulous and amazing, Sushihana is spot on and delicious. Start with the sushi appetizer, followed by the New Orleans, a spicy crawfish and avocado roll topped with spicy tuna, snow crab mix, tobiko, and eel sauce.
