San Antonio’s ‘little spot on the Southside’ is a big catch for seafood, the New York Times says

The New York Times food desk was dispatched to find 50 American eateries sure to excite. The epicures joined The World’s 50 Best in giving a nod to New York’s City’s Atomix, loved n/naka’s kaiseki cuisine in Los Angeles, and surprised a “little spot” on the Southside of San Antonio. 

Fish Lonja, a seafood offshoot of Carnitas Lonja owned by chef Alejandro Paredes, made the national list released on Monday. The New York Times calls the collection “50 places in America we’re most excited about right now.” 

Priya Krishna, food reporter and author of the “Indian-ish” cookbook, was a member of the New York Times squad that was sent out to find the “most vibrant and delicious restaurants.” Krishna called Paredes’ 2-year-old fish business “exceptional.”

The next nod might warrant a collective hair flip from the city. 

She writes that the fish “tastes so fresh, you might wonder if San Antonio is a coastal town.” 

Paredes tells MySA the nod came by surprise. The New York Times emailed him about a mention, but he didn’t realize the magnitude of the list. He says our message to him to connect on this story was the first time he heard the news. 

“We’re just a little spot on the Southside, so it’s always a surprise for me,” he adds. 

Krishna recommends the aguachile and shrimp and chorizo quesadilla. Paredes says the fish tostada is a best-seller. 

“Come and try our food, it’s nice and fresh and expect it to be something different, something very Mexican,” he says.  

Other Texas restaurants on the list include Birdie’s (Austin), Blood Bros BBQ (Bellaire), Roots Southern Table (Farmers Branch), and Sylvia’s (Brownsville). Review the full list here

Fish Lonja shares space with Carnitas Lonja at 1107 Roosevelt Avenue.
