Sushi Seven

Sometimes wasabi just doesn’t cut it. If you prefer your sushi a little hotter, and with a serious hint of San Antonio spice, Sushi Seven is probably right up your alley.

Opened by several of the same chefs who tackled Sushi Zushi’s eight locations in SA, Sushi Seven promises an equally extensive menu, while delivering on Japanese-Mexican fusion just outside Loop 1604. Sure, you’ll find some traces of cream cheese, but there are plenty of rolls to be had at the hand of these chefs.

The digs are bright and airy, but you’re not there for the décor. Stop by for fresh sashimi, or choose from the epic list of 40-plus rolls such as the Tricolor, with fried crawfish, spicy tuna and multi-colored tobiko, or fish roe. Need a bit more heat? Check out the Habanero roll with fresh yellowtail, cilantro and avocado nestled inside, as wasabi-infused green, squid-ink black and stoplight-red roe (infused with habanero) add more subtle nuances.

You can’t go wrong with the bento box specials available for lunch. Skip the teriyaki chicken in favor of the chirashi rice bowl, a sampler mix of tuna, yellowfish, salmon, escolar, tako (octopus), sweetened shitake mushrooms and delightful tamago (or Japanese omelet) squares, or smoky agedashi tofu, two large cubes of lightly fried silken tofu topped with bonito fish flakes.

Familiar? Mostly, yes, but worth a visit to check out the flavorful differences.
