One usually doesn’t think of the Rio Grande Valley as an incubator for Japanese restaurants, but this small chain made its way north to San Antonio from McAllen, and it’s made a mark here at Alamo Ranch (as well as Stone Oak and Potranco). Nigiri, sashimi, and a A-to-Z assortment of contemporary rolls are prepared at a traditional bar, fresh and nicely cut and plated. Teppanyaki, tempura items, and rice bowls fill the bill for hot foods, and judging by our hibachi salmon served with seasonal vegetables, they provide a good bite too.
