Perhaps taking a card from the popularity of Hawaiian poke cafes, this new ceviche-centric spot is an order-at-the-counter, make-your-own-mix kind of place but with San Antonio’s next-to-Mex accents. We found the mildly marinated fish very fresh, the dining room minimalist, and the line to order long, even on an early afternoon visit. The idea is to choose your seafood and add-ins (pineapple, mango, pico, cucumber, red onion). Or you can choose from about six mixes from the above-the-counter menu. To add a late-night vibe, there’s a michelada bar too, modeled after owner Ceasar Zepeda’s successful Sangria on the Burg, near the Med Center. Down sides: the chips were stale; the accompanying coconut rice, while tasty, just didn’t play well with the ceviche; and there are long lines at peak hours.
