Our pick: Hot Joy, 1014 S. Alamo St., 210-368-9324,

If you’ve been living in San Antonio for more than a year and haven’t tried the crab fat caramel wings from Hot Joy ... we honestly don’t know what your excuse could be. Named one of the top 10 best new restaurants by Bon Apetit the year it opened, Hot Joy remains the go-to Asian fusion late joint for foodies, townies and tourists looking for something other than Mi Tierra (not that we’re knocking Mi Tierra, because where else can you get Pan Dulce at 3 a.m.). Hot Joy’s crab fat caramel wings are seriously delicious and worth trying at least once (a week). Pro tip: go on Wednesdays when they’re half-off so you can pair them with some ginger beer or a cocktail.
