We all know San Antonio is the home of one of the most famous tourist attractions in America; The Alamo. And if you didn’t already know, our favorite movie, Miss Congeniality, was also filmed in this fabulous city. But those two fun facts shouldn’t be the only reason why you explore this Texas gem because the food and restaurants there are too good to pass up! Which is, of course, why we’re here. With our top 5 LGBT-friendly restaurants & bars in San Antonio, you’ll have an easy time deciding where to go!
Balancing traditional Japanese with a Latin American
Balancing traditional Japanese with a Latin American flair, Sushi Zushi prides themselves on their dedication to purists, first-timers, with the freshest ingredients, and gives them an extraordinary experience. Our favorite is the Seafood Bowl (shrimp, salmon, scallops, kanikama crab, octopus, wakame seaweed, tofu, udon noodles and green onions in a miso broth) and if soup isn’t what you’re looking for, try the Katsu Curry (curry rice with your choice of panko-breaded chicken breast or pork tenderloin). So, dive into the food and the culture that this popular sushi restaurant has to offer.
Well, if you worked up an appetite, then Tycoon Flats is the place to go! Known as the BEST burger joint in town (the Honey BBQ Bacon Burger, Monte Cristo Burger, and the Fried Avocado Burger are our favs), which means you’ll walk in hungry and leave full and happy! So, walk in, pick your choice of meat, sit down and cool off in the shade of their beautiful beer garden, especially on Tall Boy Tuesdays where Lonestar, PBR, Guinness, Pinebelt Pale Ale (just to name a few) are all 0.75 cent off. Grab a beer and a burger and enjoy life.
Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine
This family owned restaurant with a heart of gold and even better food will make you feel like you’re family the second you walk in. Their golden rule: “We will always work to treat our guest as we would want to be treated” is one of the many reasons customers come back. Lets not forget the tasty food, from the “Cocktail De Camaron” (fresh gulf shrimp and pico de gallo mixed in tangy red sauce, with just a hint of spice, served chilled with sliced Hass avocado and crackers) to the ever so popular “Pollo En Crema Poblana” (Grilled 7oz chicken breast covered with our Crema Pablana. Served with poblano corn white rice and grilled vegetables). You won’t be disappointed!
