Sushi in San Antonio! Who Knew There Was More Than Tacos?!

San Antonio is easily the city of tacos, well anything Tex-Mex really, but fortunately, there are a number of alternatives for when you're finally tired of tacos. Thankfully, there are a handful of excellent sushi restaurants in town to satisfy your craving for fresh sushi and Japanese favorites. 

Start with Sukeban! Located in the Blue Star Arts Complex, this funky cool sushi joint is a great place to take your friends, enjoy platter after platter of scrumptious sushi and flirty cocktails. The decor and servers are as exciting as the sushi. While their menu is not extensive, you'll be sure to leave sushi satisfied. 

After a visit to the Zoo, the Children's Museum or a stroll through picturesque Brackenridge Park, hop over to Koi Kawa. This neighborhood restaurant hasn't been around for years for nothing. They're known to offer the best of the best when it comes to everything they serve. Enjoy a variety of more traditional fare with some twists. Who's ready for some Lobster Tempura?
