San Antonio seafood restaurants to add to your Lent list
If you're observing Lent by not eating meat on Fridays, or you're just craving good seafood, San Antonio has a number of options worth a try.
🎣 Catch up fast: Restaurants from Bill Miller Bar-B-Q to Popeye's add a seafood special to give Catholics options, but if you're in the mood for a full fest, you're in luck.
- We came up with a list of go-to spots, based on our favorites and Twitter input from San Antonio's seafood savants.
El Jefe Baja Style
The mariscos food truck parked outside Porta Rossa serves award-winning ceviche as well as aguachile and shrimp tacos.
The Lighthouse Seafood
The Woodlawn area's laid-back spot for delicious seafood has a long list of options, including fried or broiled platters, fish sandwiches, and you guessed it — ceviche (my favorite).
Given this restaurant's popularity, getting a table might take some extra effort, but there are three locations to choose from and it'll be worth the wait. The shrimp enchiladas are my go-to.
Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery
The Pearl restaurant isn't primarily for seafood, but it serves great appetizers like snapper throats and calamari, and entrees like cracker-crusted redfish with crab (another favorite).
What they're saying: Twitter's suggestions centered on the classics.
- "Rudy’s, Bud Jones, Sherry’s Texan, Neptune’s," user @fatroostersa says.
- "Fred’s Fish Fry every Friday," @AerinCarrenoTV says.
